1.1 Features and Benefits
Simple To Use
The SkyIPCam310 is a standalone system with built-in CPU requiring no special hardware or
software such as PC frame grabber cards. The SkyIPCam310 supports both ActiveX mode (for
Internet Explorer users) and Java mode (for Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator users).
Therefore, all that is required is a web browser software such as Internet Explorer 5.0 or above
or Netscape 6.0 or above. Just plug and view the picture from your SkyIPCam310 with a valid
IP Address.
Next-Generation PoE Technology
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE, IEEE 802.3af standard) eliminates the need of 110/220 AC power
for the wired LAN devices. With this innovative technology, the network manager can deploy
these Ethernet-powered devices using only a single CAT5 Ethernet cable that carries both
power and data to each device. This enables the user to build a network with greater flexibility
in the Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) environments.

Applying a standard web browser, the administrator can configure and manage the
SkyIPCam310 directly from its own web page via the Intranet or Internet. Up to 32 username s
and passwords are permitted with privilege setting controlled by the administrator.
RS-485 Support
The pin 1 & 2 of the I/O connectors are used for RS-485 data transmission. You can connect a
special featured device (such as an external camera stand with rotation function) to meet you
3
needs. When the external device is connected, you could configure the settings and control the
device from the RS485 window of Web Configuration Utility.
Remote Utility
The powerful IPView Pro application assigns the administrator with a pre-defined user ID and
password, allowing the administrator to modify the camera settings from the remote site via
Intranet or Internet. When new firmware is available, you can also upgrade remotely over the
network for added convenience. Users are also allowed to monitor the image, and take
snapshots.
Broad Range of Applications
With today’s high-speed Internet services, the SkyIPCam310 can provide the ideal solution for

10 7. Appendix
7.1 Frequently Asked Questions
SkyIPCam310 Features
Q: What is a Network Camera?
A: The Network Camera (Internet Camera) is a standalone system connecting directly to an
Ethernet or Fast Ethernet network. It is different from the conventional PC camera, the
SkyIPCam310 is an all-in-one system with built-in CPU and web-based solutions providing a
low cost solution that can transmit high quality video images for monitoring. The SkyIPCam310
can be managed remotely, accessed and controlled from any PC/Notebook over the Intranet or
Internet via a web browser.
Q: What is the maximum number of users that can be allowed to access the SkyIPCam310
simultaneously?
A: Maximum number of users that can log onto the SkyIPCam310 at the same time is 64.
Please keep in mind the overall performance of the transmission speed will slow down when
many users are logged on.
Q: What algorithm is used to compress the digital image?
A: The SkyIPCam310 utilizes the JPEG image compression technology providing high quality
images for users. JPEG is adopted since it is a standard for image compression and can be
applied to various web browser and application software without the need to install extra
software.
SkyIPCam310 Installation
Q: Can the SkyIPCam310 be used out-doors?
A: The SkyIPCam310 is not weatherproof. It needs to be equipped with a weatherproof case to
be used outdoors and it is not recommended.
Q: What network cabling is required for the SkyIPCam310?
A: The SkyIPCam310 uses Category 5 UTP cable allowing 10 Base-T and 100 Base-T
networking.
Q: Can the SkyIPCam310 be setup as a PC-cam on the computer?
A: No, the SkyIPCam310 is a network camera used only on Ethernet and Fast Ethernet
network.
Q: Can the SkyIPCam310 be connected on the network if it consists of only private IP
addresses?
A: The SkyIPCam310 can be connected to LAN with private IP addresses.
Q: Can the SkyIPCam310 be installed and work if a firewall exists on the network?
A: If a firewall exists on the network, port 80 is open for ordinary data communication.
However, since the SkyIPCam310 transmits image data, the default port 8481 is also required.
54
Therefore, it is necessary to open port 8481 of the network for remote users to access the
camera.
7.2 PING Your IP Address
The PING (Packet Internet Groper) command can determine whether a specific IP address is
accessible by sending a packet to the specific address and waiting for a reply. It can also
provide a very useful tool to confirm if the IP address conflicts with the camera over the network.
Follow the step-by-step procedure below to utilize the PING command. However, you must
disconnect the camera from the network first.
Start a DOS window.
Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the camera.
The succeeding replies as illustrated below will provide useful explanation to the cause of the
problem with the SkyIPCam310 IP address.
7.3 Troubleshooting
Q: I cannot access the SkyIPCam310 from a web browser.
A1: The possible cause might be the IP Address for the SkyIPCam310 is already being used by
another device. To correct the possible problem, you need to first disconnect the SkyIPCam310
from the network. Then run the PING utility (follow the instructions in Appendix B - PING Your
IP Address).
A2: Another possible reason is the IP Address is located on a different subnet. To fix the
problem, run the PING utility (follow the instructions in Appendix B - PING Your IP Address). If
the utility returns “no response” or similar, the finding is probably correct, then you should
proceed as follows:
In Windows 98 / 2000 / XP / Vista and Windows NT, double check the IP Address of the
SkyIPCam310 is within the same subnet as your workstation.
Click “Start”, “Setting”, “Control Panel”, and the “Network” icon. Select TCP/IP from the
“Network” dialog box and from the “TCP/IP Properties” dialog box click “Specify an IP address”.
If the camera0 is situated on a different subnet than your workstation, you will not be able to set
the IP address from this workstation. To verify make sure the first 3 sections of the IP address
of the camera corresponds to the first 3 sections of the workstation. Therefore the IP address of
the SkyIPCam310 must be set from a workstation on the same subnet.
A3: Other possible problems might be due to the network cable. Try replacing your network
cable. Test the network interface of the product by connecting a local computer to the unit,
utilizing a standard Crossover (hub to hub) Cable. If the problem is not solved the camera might
be faulty.
55
Q: Why does the Power LED not light up constantly?
A: The power supply used might be at fault. Confirm that you are using the provided power
supply DC 5V for the SkyIPCam310 and verify that the power supply is well connected.
Q: Why does the Link LED not light up properly?
A1: There might be a problem with the network cable. To confirm that the cables are working,
PING the address of a know device on the network. If the cabling is OK and your network is
reachable, you should receive a reply similar to the following (…bytes = 32 time = 2 ms).
Q: Why does the SkyIPCam310 work locally but not externally?
A1: Might be caused from the firewall protection. Need to check the Internet firewall with your
system administrator.
A2: The default router setting might be a possible reason.
configuration of the default router settings is required.
Need to double check if the
Q: Why does a series of broad vertical white line appears through out the image?
A: A likely issue is that the CMOS sensor becomes overloaded when the light source is too
bright such as direct exposure to sunlight or halogen light. You need to reposition the
SkyIPCam310 into a more shaded area immediately as this will damage the CMOS sensor.
Q: There is bad focus on the SkyIPCam310, what should be done?
A1: The focus might not be correctly adjusted for the line of sight. You need to adjust the
SkyIPCam310 focus manually as described in Adjust SkyIPCam310 Focus.
A2: There is no adaptor fitted with your C-type lens. If you have previously changed the
supplied CS-type lens, you may have unintentionally installed a C-type lens without fitting the
adaptor first.
Q: Noisy images occur how can I solve the problem?
A: The video images might be noisy if the SkyIPCam310 is used is a very low light environment.
To solve this issue you need more lighting.
Q: There is poor image quality, how can I improve the image?
A1: A probable cause might be the incorrect display properties configuration for your desktop.
You need to open the Display Properties on your desktop and configure your display to show at
least 65’000 colors for example at least 16-bit.
NOTE: Applying only 16 or 256 colors on your computer will produce dithering artifacts in the image.
A2: The configuration on the SkyIPCam310 image display is incorrect. Through the Web
Configuration Image section you need to adjust the image related parameter for improve images
such as brightness, contrast, hue and light frequency. Please refer to the Web Configuration
section for detail information.
Q: There are no images available through the web browser?
A: The ActiveX might be disabled. If you are viewing the images from Internet Explorer make
sure ActiveX has been enabled in the Internet Options menu. Alternatively, you can use the
Java Applet for viewing the required images.
56
7.4 Adjust SkyIPCam310 Focus
To adjust the focus of the lens, you need to turn the lens slowly in either clockwise or anticlockwise direction until the desired image appears. DO NOT over turn the lens in either of the
directions, as it will be out of focus.
NOTE: You can further adjust the SkyIPCam310's image quality through System Administration –
Image of Web Configuration. Please refer to Web Configuration section for further details.
Warning
Direct exposure to sunlight may cause permanent damage to the CMOS sensor. Therefore do not expose the
SkyIPCam310’s lens directly to sunlight. When operation is required in glaring light environment, it is
recommended to use an iris lens.
The SkyIPCam310 is designed for indoor usage and if your application requires prolong exposure to sunlight, a
sun visor is recommended to protect the SkyIPCam310.
