Introduction
The Cisco Video Surveillance 7030 IP camera is an outdoor, high definition, professional fixed dome
IP camera with industry-leading image quality and processing power. The 5 megapixel (MP) IP camera
offers 1080p full HD resolution (up to 2560 x 1920) with superb image quality up to 30 frames per
second (FPS) while optimizing network usage with either H.264 or MJPEG compression. It can capture
a much more comprehensive area than a standard VGA model, significantly reducing the number of units
required. It is especially suitable for monitoring wide open outdoor areas such as building entrances,
airports, or applications requiring accurate identification.
For installers, properly adjusting the focus of an HD IP camera can be difficult due to the image detail.
To make installation and adjustment easier, the 7030 IP camera incorporates built-in stepping motors that
the installer can use to remotely control the focal length and precisely adjust the camera focus, offering
hassle-free installation and maintenance.
For complete installation and tampering prevention, the 7030 IP camera also fits different conduits and
corrugated tubes sizes for cable installation. Its IP66-rated housing is designed to help the camera body
withstand rain and dust and ensures operation under a multitude of harsh weather conditions. The wide
temperature range further enhances the 7030 IP camera performance and reliability in extremely cold
and warm weather. Additionally, the metal vandal-proof housing effectively provides robust protection
from vandalism.
With other advanced features such 802.3af compliant PoE, micro SD/SDHC card for local storage,
integrated IR illuminator for enhanced visibility in night mode, and e-PTZ functionality, the 7030 IP
camera provides the most robust solution suitable for any demanding outdoor environment.

Performing the Initial Setup of the IP Camera
After you install IP camera as described in the Chapter 2, “Camera Installation,” or after you perform a
factory reset procedure, you must access the IP camera and make initial configuration settings. These
settings include administrator and root passwords, and whether the IP camera can be accessed through
an HTTP connection in addition to the default HTTPS (HTTP secure) connection.
To make these configuration settings, you connect to the IP camera from any PC that is on the same
network as the IP camera. The PC must meet these requirements:
•
Operating system—Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
•
Browser—Internet Explorer 8.0 (32-bit only)
In addition, you must know the IP address and default login credentials of the IP camera. By default,
when the IP camera powers on, it attempts to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server in your network.
If the camera cannot obtain an IP address through DCHP within 90 seconds, it uses a default IP address
of 192.168.0.100. The default login credentials (Username/Password) are admin/admin.
To connect to the IP camera for the first time and make initial configuration settings, perform the
following steps. You can change these configuration settings in the future as described in the Cisco Video
Surveillance 7000 Series IP Camera Configuration Guide.
Before you Begin
The Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or later must be installed on the PC that you use to connect
to the IP camera. You can download the .NET Framework from the Microsoft website.
Procedure
Step 1
Start Internet Explorer, enter HTTPS://ip_address in the address field, and press Enter.
Replace ip_address with the IP address that the IP camera obtained through DHCP or, if the camera was
unable to obtain this IP address, enter 192.168.0.100.
The Login window appears.
Step 2
Enter the default login credentials:
Username: admin
Password: admin
The Initialization window appears.

3-1
Chapter 3
Step 3
Performing the Initial Setup of the IP Camera
In the Password and Confirm Password fields of the admin row, enter a password for the IP camera
administrator.
You must enter the same password in both fields. The password is case sensitive and must contain at least
eight characters, which can be letters, numbers, and special characters, but no spaces. Special characters
are: ! " # $ % & ' ( ) * + , - . : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ^ _ ` { | } ~.
Step 4
In the Password and Confirm Password fields of the Root row, enter a password that is used when
accessing the IP camera through a Secure Shell (SSH) connection.
You must enter the same password in both fields. The password is case sensitive and must contain at least
eight characters, which can be letters, numbers, and special characters, but no spaces. Special characters
are: ! " # $ % & ' ( ) * + , - . : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ^ _ ` { | } ~.
You use the root password if you need to troubleshoot the IP camera through a SSH connection with the
assistance of the Cisco Technical Assistance Center.
Step 5
In the Access Protocols area, check the Enable HTTP check box if you want to allow both HTTP and
HTTPS connections to the IP camera.
By default, only the Enable HTTPS check box is checked, which allows only HTTPS (secure)
connections to the IP camera.
Step 6
Click Apply.
The IP camera reboots and the Login window appears.
Step 7
After the IP camera reboots, start Internet Explorer and, in the Address field, enter the following:

Enable Motion
Detection check box
Enables the motion detection feature and displays a grid over the video image.
When motion detection is enabled, the IP camera monitors activity in the video
field areas that you specify. If activity at a defined level occurs in any of these
areas, the IP camera generates an alert and takes the configured actions.
To designate specific areas that the IP camera monitors for activity, select the
areas by clicking each grid cell over the area. A red border indicates a selected
area. To deselect an area, click it again.
You can configure the following levels for areas that the IP camera monitors
for activity:
•
Sensitivity—Designates the relative amount of activity that the IP camera
must detect in the area before it generates an alert. A lower value means
that more, or faster, activity is required to trigger an alert. A higher value
means that less, or slower, activity is required. The default value is 80.
•
Threshold—Designates the percentage of pixels that the IP camera must
identify as changed in the area before it generates an alert. The camera
detects pixel changes at the defined sensitivity level. The default threshold
value is 10.
To configure sensitivity or threshold, right-click a grid cell that has a red
border and then drag the Sensitivity and Threshold sliders to the desired
values. Alternatively, enter a value from 1 through 100 for an option and press
the Enter key. To reset the sensitivity and threshold to their default values of
50, click Restore. These configuration settings affect the cell that you select.
If the cell is part of a group of horizontally or vertically (but not diagonally)
adjacent cells, the settings affect all cells in the group.
