2.3 Compliance.......................................................................................................... 10
2.1
Safety
The safety information contained in this section, and on other pages of this manual, must be
observed whenever this unit is operated, serviced, or repaired. Failure to comply with any
precaution, warning, or instruction noted in the manual is in violation of the standards of
design, manufacture, and intended use of the module. Siqura assumes no liability for the
customer's failure to comply with any of these safety requirements.
Trained personnel
Installation, adjustment, maintenance, and repair of this equipment are to be performed by
trained personnel aware of the hazards involved. For correct and safe use of the equipment
and in order to keep the equipment in a safe condition, it is essential that both operating and
servicing personnel follow standard safety procedures in addition to the safety precautions
and warnings specified in this manual, and that this unit be installed in locations accessible to
trained service personnel only.
Safety requirements
The equipment described in this manual has been designed and tested according to the
UL/IEC/EN 60950-1 safety requirements. See the CE Declaration of Conformity for
compliance information.
Warning: If there is any doubt regarding the safety of the equipment, do not put it into
operation.
This might be the case when the equipment shows physical damage or is stressed beyond
tolerable limits (for example, during storage and transportation).
Important: Before opening the equipment, disconnect it from all power sources.
The equipment must be powered by a SELV1 power supply. This is equivalent to a Limited
Power source (LPS, see UL/IEC/EN 60950-1 clause 2.5) or a "NEC Class 2" power supply.
When this module is operated in extremely elevated temperature conditions, it is possible for
internal and external metal surfaces to become extremely hot.
1. SELV: conforming to IEC 60950-1, <60 Vdc output, output voltage galvanically isolated
from mains. All power supplies or power supply cabinets available from Siqura comply with
these SELV requirements.
7
Safety and compliance
Power source and temperature ratings
Verify that the power source is appropriate before you plug in and operate the unit. Use the
unit under conditions where the temperature remains within the range given in the Technical
Specifications of this product.
Optical safety
The following optical safety information applies to HSD820 models with SFP interface.
This product complies with 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 except for deviations pursuant to
Laser Notice No. 50, dated June 24, 2007. This optical equipment contains Class 1M lasers or
LEDs and has been designed and tested to meet IEC 60825-1:1993+A1+A2 and IEC
60825-2:2004 safety class 1M requirements.
Warning: Optical equipment presents potential hazards to testing and servicing personnel,
owing to high levels of optical radiation.
When using magnifying optical instruments, avoid looking directly into the output of an
operating transmitter or into the end of a fiber connected to an operating transmitter, or there
will be a risk of permanent eye damage. Precautions should be taken to prevent exposure to
optical radiation when the unit is removed from its enclosure or when the fiber is disconnected
from the unit. The optical radiation is invisible to the eye.
Use of controls or adjustments or procedures other than those specified herein may result in
hazardous radiation exposure.
The installer is responsible for ensuring that the label depicted below (background: yellow;
border and text: black) is present in the restricted locations where this equipment is installed.
EMC
This device has been tested and found to meet the CE regulations relating to EMC and
complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against interference to radio communications in
any installation. The equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy;
improper use or special circumstances may cause interference to other equipment or a
performance decrease due to interference radiated by other equipment. In such cases, the
user will have to take appropriate measures to reduce such interactions between this and
other equipment.
Any interruption of the shielding inside or outside the equipment could make the equipment
more prone to fail EMC requirements.
Non-video signal lines must use appropriate shielded Cat 5 cabling (S-FTP), or at least an
equivalent. Ensure that all electrically connected components are carefully earthed and
protected against surges (high voltage transients caused by switching or lightning).
ESD
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage or destroy electronic components. Proper
precautions should be taken against ESD when opening the equipment.
8
Safety and compliance
RoHS statement
Global concerns over the health and environmental risks associated with the
use of certain environmentally-sensitive materials in electronic products have
led the European Union (EU) to enact the Directive on the Restriction of the
use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) (2002/95/EC). Siqura offers
products that comply with the EU’s RoHS Directive. The full version of the
Siqura RoHS statement can be viewed at www.siqura.com.
Product disposal
The unit contains valuable materials which qualify for recycling. In the
interest of protecting the natural environment, properly recycling the unit at
the end of its service life is imperative.
When processing the printed circuit board, dismantling the lithium battery
calls for special attention. This kind of battery, a button cell type, contains so
little lithium, that it will never be classified as reactive hazardous waste. It is
safe for normal disposal, as required for batteries by your local authority.
2.2
Cautions
Handle the camera carefully
Do not abuse the camera. Avoid bumping and shaking. The camera can be damaged by
improper handling or storage.
Do not disassemble the camera
To prevent electric shock, do not remove screws or covers. There are no user serviceable
parts inside. Consult technical support if a camera is suspected of malfunctioning.
Do not block the cooling vent
This camera has a cooling fan inside. Blocking the cooling holes may lead to overheating and
cause malfunction. Overheating is not covered by warranty.
Never face the camera towards the sun
Do not aim the camera at bright objects. Whether the camera is in use or not, never aim it at
the sun or other extremely bright objects, as this can damage the camera.
Do not expose indoor models to moisture
The indoor camera model is designed for indoor use or use in locations where it is protected
from rain and moisture. Turn the power off immediately if the camera is wet and ask a
qualified technician for servicing. Moisture can damage the camera and also create the danger
of electric shock.
9
Safety and compliance
Do not use strong or abrasive detergents to clean the camera
Use a dry cloth to clean the camera when it is dirty. If the dirt is hard to remove, use a mild
detergent and wipe gently. To clean the lens, use lens tissue or a cotton tipped applicator and
ethanol. Do not clean the lens with strong detergents.

Description
Multistream high definition
The HSD820 series cameras have quad-stream capability for simultaneous streaming of H.
264/H.264 or H.264/MJPEG. Full HD 1080p streaming with a D1 second stream or dual 720p
streaming is possible. Multiple combinations of resolution and frame rate can be configured to
satisfy different live viewing and recording scenarios.
Open standards
Siqura provides multiple options to easily integrate the HSD820 series cameras with a video
management system (VMS). In support of open standards, the HSD820 cameras are
compliant with the ONVIF Profile S specification as well as the Siqura Open Streaming
Architecture (OSA) HTTP API.
High-speed dome
The HSD820 series cameras have a 20x (H2 model) or 30x (H3 model) auto focus zoom lens.
Precision 400° per second pan and tilt drive technology offers almost instant preset
positioning. Support for many presets, cruises, and sequences provides for highly flexible
manual or automatic operation.
Day/Night, Backlight Compensation, and Wide Dynamic Range
The HSD820 series cameras provide automatic day/night functionality, for use in low light
situations. Backlight compensation enhances image visibility in difficult lighting conditions.
Wide dynamic range solves the problem of overlit images by combining the best of two
pictures with different exposure settings.
Image stabiliser
The HSD820H3 has a built-in image stabiliser to prevent vibrations from disrupting a camera
view or footage, such as those caused by wind in pole-mount installations.
12
Product overview
Privacy masks

Web Server port
The HTTP port can be any port other than the default port, 80. If the port is changed, the user
must be notified of the change for connections to be successful.
For example, if the administrator changes the HTTP port of a camera with an IP address of
192.168.0.100 from 80 to 8080, the user must type in the address http://
192.168.0.100:8080 instead of http://192.168.0.100.
RTSP port
The RTSP port can be any port other than the default port, 554. If the port is changed, the
user must be notified of the change for connections to be successful. The port number may
range from 1024 to 65535.
For example, if the administrator changes the RTSP port of a camera with an IP address of
192.168.0.100 from 554 to 8080, the user must type in the address rtsp://
192.168.0.100:8080 instead of rtsp://192.168.0.100.
MJPEG over HTTP port
The HTTP port that streams MJPEG can be any port other than the default port, 8008. If the
port is changed, the user must be notified of the change for connections to be successful. The
port number may range from 1024 to 65535.
For example, if the administrator changes the MJPEG over HTTP port of a camera with an IP
address of 192.168.0.100 from 8008 to 8080, the user must type in the address http://
192.168.0.100:8080 instead of http://192.168.0.100.

QoS
System > Network > QoS
DiffServ and QoS
Differentiated Services (DiffServ, or DS) is a method for adding Quality of Service (QoS) to IP
networks. In routed networks, critical network traffic such as video and audio streams, which
require a relatively uninterrupted flow of data, can get blocked due to other traffic. DiffServ
can be used to classify network traffic and give precedence - that is, low-latency, guaranteed
service, to high-priority traffic, while offering best-effort service to non-critical traffic such as
file transfers or Web traffic.
Each stream has a DSCP (Differentiated Services Code Point) field in the IP header. Routers
will identify the network service type in the DSCP field and provide the appropriate level of
service. Low-latency service can be realised, for example, through priority queuing, bandwidth
allocation, or by assigning dedicated routes.
DSCP settings
The DSCP value range is from 0 to 63. The default DSCP value is 0, which means DSCP is
disabled. The IP camera uses the following QoS Classes: Video, Audio, and Management.
Video DSCP
The class consists of applications such as MJPEG over HTTP, RTP/RTSP, and RTSP/HTTP.
Audio DSCP
This setting is available for IP cameras that support audio.
Management DSCP
The class consists of HTTP traffic: Web browsing.
36
System settings
Note: Before enabling this function, make sure the switches/routers in the network support
QoS.
6.3.3
SNMP

Alarm trigger actions
System > Events > Application > Triggered action
The actions detailed in this section can be set to be triggered when an alarm occurs. Make
sure that the SMTP, FTP, and/or HTTP configuration is complete before you configure the
triggered actions for an alarm. For more information, see Mail ( on page 41), FTP ( on
page 42), and/or HTTP ( on page 43).
Enable alarm output
The HSD820 provides two alarm outputs. They can be enabled by selecting the Enable alarm
output 1 and Enable alarm output 2 check boxes.
Note: The output state is determined by any combination of the alarm inputs (digital input
and motion detection). The alarm inputs can be individually enabled to drive the output,
provided the alarms themselves are already enabled. The enabled alarms are combined by a
logical OR to activate the output. The output type is therefore the same for all enabled
alarms. An API command (from a VMS, for example) can override the current output state to
inactive until the next enabled alarm is triggered, or it can also set the output state to
active.
Send message by FTP
A message is sent to the FTP site, as configured on the FTP page, when an alarm is triggered.
For information on how to configure messages to be sent to an FTP site, see FTP ( on
page 42).
Upload image by FTP
When an alarm is triggered, a specified number of pre- and post-trigger buffer frames are
sent to the configured FTP server. The Pre-trigger buffer function allows users to check what
happened to cause the trigger.
45
System settings
Note: Normally, the range of the Pre-trigger buffer is 1-20 frames. This range will change
accordingly if the MJPEG frame rate on the Video frame rate page (see "Video frame rate" on
page 75) is 6 or slower.
With the Post-trigger function, users can set a certain amount of images to be uploaded after
the triggering of the alarm input.
Important: Uploading images by FTP or e-mail is only possible if MJPEG output is
configured. If only H.264 streaming is enabled, no images will be sent.
Continue image upload
If selected you can choose to upload the triggered images for a certain time or to keep
uploading until the trigger is off.
●
Upload for n sec
The number of frames per second (fps) selected in the Image Frequence list is sent to the
FTP Server for the number of seconds specified in the Upload for n sec box. The range is 1
to 9999 seconds.
●
Upload during trigger active
The number of frames per second (fps) selected in the Image Frequence list is sent to the
FTP Server until the trigger is no longer active. The range is 1 to 15 frames.
PTZ function
Assign a camera function - Preset, Sequence, Autopan, or Cruise - and specify a Preset Point/
Sequence Line/Autopan Path/Cruise Line for the camera to perform at an alarm occurrence.
For a description of these functions, see PTZ (see "PTZ&IMAGE" on page 77).
If the selected function is Preset, the dwell time must be specified in the Dwell time box.
When the alarm is triggered, the camera will go to the selected Preset Point and stay there for
the user-defined period of time. As for other function modes, the camera will keep executing
the specified function. To stop this action, simply change the camera status.
Note: The dwell time can only be adjusted when Preset is selected as the alarm action.
When the dwell time has expired, the camera will go back to its trigger position and recheck
the alarm pin status.
Record video clip
Select this option and the alarm-triggered recording will be saved to your microSD card. The
Pre-trigger buffer function allows you to check what occurrence caused the trigger. The Pretrigger buffer time range is from 1 to 3 seconds.

Protocol
Description
RTP over UDP
Real-Time Transport Protocol, using UDP transport, lessens
network delay and is required for two-way audio streams.
RTP over RTSP (TCP)
Real-Time Transport Protocol, using TCP transport, guarantees that
data is delivered and that no packets are dropped, but some
network delay may occur.
RTSP over HTTP
A standard solution to help RTSP work through firewalls and Web
proxies, so that viewers behind a firewall can access RTSP streams.
MJPEG over HTTP
Consecutive JPEG images are sent individually over HTTP.
Multicast mode
Multicast streaming reduces bandwidth usage for streams being
transmitted to multiple clients.
To set a video stream protocol
1
On the Streaming tab, click Video stream protocol in the menu on the left.
2

Camera - Exposure
PTZ > Camera - Exposure
Exposure is the amount of light received by the image sensor. It is determined by the width of
the lens diaphragm opening, the shutter speed and other exposure parameters. On the
Exposure page, users can select one of the exposure modes for optimised video output in
accordance with the operating environment.
Max Gain
Here, you can select an appropriate, maximum level for automatic gain control (AGC) or set
this to 'off'.
Full Auto
In this mode, the camera's shutter speed, iris, and gain control circuits work together to
provide consistent video output.
Shutter Priority
In this mode, it is the shutter speed that takes main control of exposure. Shutter speed values
range from 1/10000 to 1 second.
P-Iris
In this mode, users can manually adjust the iris size and minimum shutter speed.
86
PTZ&IMAGE
Iris Priority
In this mode, the iris opening has the highest priority in exposure control. Iris opening values
range from F1.6 to F28. The lower the number, the more light is let into the lens.
Manual
In this mode, the shutter speed [1/10000 to 1], iris opening [F1.6 to F28], and gain [1 to 15]
settings can be specified manually.
8.9
Camera - WB
PTZ > Camera - WB
Colour temperature
A camera needs to measure the quality of a light source and create a reference colour
temperature in order to calculate all the other colours. The unit for measuring this ratio is in
degree Kelvin (K). Users can select one of the White Balance control modes, according to the
operating environment. The table below gives the colour temperatures of some light sources
as a general reference.
Light source
Colour temperature in °K
Cloudy sky
6000 to 8000
Noon sun and clear sky

Household lighting
2500 to 3000
75 W bulb
2820
Candle flame
1200 to 1500
87
PTZ&IMAGE
Auto
The camera detects a colour temperature range and calculates an optimal white balance. The
Auto White Balance mode is suitable for light sources with colour temperature ranges from
2700 to 7800 K.
Indoor/Outdoor
The white balance is adjusted to a colour temperature range for either indoor or outdoor
lighting conditions.
ATW
In Auto Tracing White Balance (ATW) mode, the camera takes out the signals in a screen in
the range from 2500 K to 10000 K. It continuously adjusts the camera colour balance to
changes in the colour temperature which may occur, for example, when moving from an
indoor scene to an outdoor scene.
One Push
With the One Push function, white balance is adjusted and fixed according to the scene the
camera sees at the moment. This function is best for situations with minimal scene changes
and continuous lighting. The function is suitable for light sources with any kind of colour
temperature.
To set the white balance using One Push
1
Point the camera at the area to be monitored.
2
Under White balance, click One Push.
3
Click Set.
4
Click Trigger to adjust the white balance.
Note: In this mode, the value of white balance will not change as the scene or the light
source varies. Therefore, users may have to re-adjust the white balance by pushing the
Trigger button again when needed.
Manual
In this mode, users can change the white balance value manually by adjusting the Rgain and
Bgain. Rgain/Bgain values range from 0 to 255.

Camera - Misc 1
PTZ > Cam - Misc1
On the Camera - Miscellaneous Setups Menu 1 (Misc1) page, users can set various camera
parameters including Backlight Compensation, Sharpness, Exposure Compensation, Image
Flip, Digital Zoom, Speed by Zoom, and Day/Night.
BLC
Backlight Compensation (BLC) enhances the visibility of objects in the foreground of an image
when there is a bright light in the background.
Sharpness
The sharpness value describes the clarity of detail perceived in an image. A higher sharpness
value implies a clearer image. A lower sharpness value implies a more obscure image. The
sharpness value is adjustable from 1 to 15.
ExpComp
Exposure Compensation (ExpComp) allows the user to adjust the exposure to compensate for
unusual or problematic lighting conditions that could result in less-than-optimal images. The
function can also be used to create intentional underexposure or overexposure. ExpComp
values range from 1 to 15.
Flip
Users can track an object continuously as it passes under the dome camera by setting Flip to
Mechanical (M.E.) mode.
Note: Flip setting is controlled manually only. If a Preset Position or a point for an other
function such as Sequence, is set to a position that can only be reached through FLIP
motion, that position cannot be reached anymore when the Flip function is turned off.
M.E. mode is a standard mechanical operation. As the dome camera tilts to the maximum
angle, it will pan 180°, and then continue tilting to keep tracking objects.
89
PTZ&IMAGE
Note: To make the dome camera tilt between a specific range, such as -10° to +100° or
-10° ~ +190°, go to the Tilt Range setting page (see "Tilt Range" on page 84) to set the tilt
angle range. Otherwise, the dome camera will tilt 90° as the default setting.
Digital zoom
With digital zoom set to On, it is possible to zoom in further on the video when the lens is fully
zoomed in using optical zoom.
Speed by zoom
When enabled, the pan/tilt speed is adjusted by an internal algorithm when zooming
automatically. The larger the zoom ratio, the lower the rotation speed. Speed by Zoom is set
to On by default.
Day/Night function
When the Day/Night function is set to on, the camera removes the IR-cut filter and switches
to monochrome for clearer images in low-light conditions. When off, the filter is returned and
the image is in colour. In Auto mode, the camera detects the lighting conditions and switches
the filter accordingly.
To adjust the camera's IR-cut filter
8.11
1
Select On (IR-cut filter removed), Off (IR cut filter in place), or Auto.
2
Press Set to confirm the new setting.
Camera - Misc 2
PTZ > Camera - Misc2
On the Camera - Miscellaneous Setups Menu 2 (Misc2) page, users can set various camera
parameters.

PTZ&IMAGE
WDR
To enhance video display, the wide dynamic range (WDR) function solves high contrast or
changing light issues by taking the best of two pictures with different exposure settings. WDR
is especially effective in solving indoor and outdoor contrast issues. The user can enable or
disable the WDR function, according to the application.
Inverse
With the Inverse function, the video in the camera preview can be rotated 180°.
Autocalibration
There is one horizontal and one vertical infrared ray check point in each dome. When the
dome camera's position is moved during installation or maintenance, the relative distance
between the original set point and the check point may change. When enabled, the
autocalibration function automatically detects this change and resets the point back to the
original position.
2DNR
With the 2D Noise Reduction function, the processor analyses pixel by pixel and frame by
frame to eliminate environmental noise signal so that a high quality image can be produced
even in low light conditions.
3DNR
In addition to 2D Noise Reduction, the HSD820H3 also includes 3DNR which generates
enhanced noise reduction.
Stabilizer
The HSD820H3 has a built-in image stabiliser to prevent vibrations from disrupting a camera
view or footage, such as those caused by wind in pole-mount installations. Enable this
function to provide stable pictures even at the highest zoom ratio.
OSD and Set Pan Zero
