Performing the Initial Setup of the IP Camera
After you install the 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 or 64-bit) and 8 (32-bit or 64-bit)
•
Browsers:
– Internet Explorer—Internet Explorer 9.0, 10.0, and 11.0 (32-bit only) are the fully supported
web browsers. After upgrading the camera firmware, clear the browser cache and reload the web
page to ensure that the new features display.
If ActiveX is not installed on your client PC, the View Video window and the Setup >
Local Storage window prompts you to install the Cisco Camera UI Control. This message can
take some time to display.
If ActiveX is not working properly after installation, close the browser and restart the machine.
– Other browsers—The following additional browsers can also be used to view video from IP
camera by using either the VLC Media Player or the QuickTime plug-in:
- Windows—Chrome and Firefox browsers
- MacOS X—Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers
These web browser support all Cisco IP camera features except motion detection, custom
exposure region, and privacy zone, which are available only using Internet Explorer.
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.

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:

Description
Flickerless check box
Appears when you choose Manual from the Exposure mode drop-down menu.
Flickering can occur when a combination of indoor and outdoor light get to the
IP camera, due to a difference in capture frequency and actual indoor lighting
frequency. Check this check box to limit the range of exposure time, which
prevents flickering.
Exposure time slider
Appears when you choose Manual from the Exposure mode drop-down
menu.
To control the minimum length of time in seconds that the IP camera keeps its
iris open for each frame, drag the left slider box. To control the maximum
length of time in seconds that the IP camera keeps its iris open for each frame,
drag the right slider box.
When capturing video, the IP camera automatically selects the optimum value
between the minimum and maximum values that you configure.
If the Flickerless check box is not checked, the minimum exposure value is
1/32000 and the maximum value is 1/5. If the Flickerless check box is
checked, the minimum exposure value is 1/120 and the maximum value is 1/5.
Gain control slider
Appears when you choose Manual from the Exposure mode drop-down menu.
To control the minimum gain of the IP camera, drag the left slider box. To
control the maximum gain, drag the right slider box. A value of 0 does not
boost the gain, so the image may appear darker in a darker environment. A
higher value increases the exposure of the image, which can cause the image
to look brighter, but can also cause the image to appear more noisy.
When capturing video, the IP camera automatically selects the optimum value
between the minimum and maximum values that you configure.
Iris Adjustment
(Cisco 7530PD cameras only.) Appears when you choose Manual from the
Exposure mode drop-down menu.
Iris Adjustment controls the iris opening, Iris opening ranges from 1 to 100.
