The live view will appear automatically with the video resolution of 1920 x 1080.
While being on the Live View page, the Live View icon appears as being pressed. If you leave the
Live View page, you can later return by pressing that button. The buttons shown on the Live View
page vary depending on the functions supported by the camera.
If the resolution of the PC’s monitor is bigger than the resolution of the live video, you will be able
to see the whole size of the video immediately. If not, you will only see part of the video at first and
you would have to use the scroll bars to see the rest of the video area. In order to see the whole
video on your display, you can temporarily re-scale the video to better fit your screen by pressing
the digital zoom buttons:
- Enlarge the video size digitally
- Reduce the video size digitally
Note: These digital zoom adjustments do not influence the actual video resolution of the camera.
Regardless of how large or small the video appears on the display after pressing the digital zoom
buttons, the actual video stream size of the camera is the same as before.
You can also digitally re-scale the video to fully match the size of your display with just 1 click:
- Full screen Mode
You may use ESC key from the keyboard to exit the full screen mode.

The cameras have the triple stream capability – Stream 1 is usually the high resolution stream
with the purpose of being recorded by NVR while Stream 2 and Stream 3 have lighter video
configuration for NVR live view purposes, to reduce the computing power of the NVR PC. Both
streams can be configured under Web Configurator’s Setup page. To see how each of the
streams looks like, there are quick buttons on the Live View page:
- Show Stream 1 video
- Show Stream 2 video
- Show Stream 3 video
When pressing the Stream 2 button, the Live View would look like this:

3.6 Host Setup
The “Host Setup” section allows the administrator to define the name of the camera and preferred user
interface language.
3.6.1 Host
Parameters
Host Name
Description
Host Name is used to identify the camera by a DHCP server. In some networks with
very strict security policy, it is required that all the network devices should have their
host name, and when the devices attempt to access the network by requesting an IP
address from a DHCP server, the DHCP server would check if the host name is
among the allowed devices. On this page, it is possible to edit the Host Name. To
actually include the Host Name in DHCP discovery packet sent from a camera,
please go to IP Settings and make sure the device is in Dynamic IP Address mode
and “Use host name” is checked.
Language
Language selection under Host has the same purpose as the one on the login page
of Web Configuration.
Camera Name
Camera Name is used to identify the device by Video Management System or by
Software Tools. Usually, upon installation of the camera, the actual installation
location is used as an easy-to-remember Camera Name, such as “Front Gate” or
“Elevator 1”. In many cases the VMS is able to modify the Camera Name directly via
its own user interface without needing to access Web Configuration.
After changing any of the items above, press Apply to save the changes. The Reset button undoes

Find the camera location on Google maps, for example, installed in the airport.
Copy the first GPS coordinates from the URL bar and paste it on Degree of Latitude. Copy the
second part of the GPS coordinates to Degree of Longitude.
Press Apply to save the changes.
55
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
3.7 Date and Time
Each video frame contains a time stamp. The accuracy of the time stamp is very important for incident
investigators. Therefore the clock of the camera has to be adjusted to the most accurate time possible.
The section Date & Time provides the options for adjusting the date and time of the camera.
There are two ways to adjust the date and time – automatically by getting date and time regularly
from any of the NTP servers worldwide, or manually by selecting proper time zone, date and time.
The automatic way can be used only if the camera has an access to NTP servers. If you are using an
isolated Local Area Network without Internet access, you can only use Manual date and time
adjustment mode.
When choosing SNTP/NTP Server for automatic date and time updating, you can key-in the IP
address of the NTP server and the time interval for automatic time synchronization. If you want to
key-in the domain name of NTP server instead, please make sure the DNS server IP address has
been set under IP Settings; otherwise, the camera will not be able to resolve the domain name of the
NTP server.
56
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
If all the cameras are getting the date and time from the same NTP Server, you can be most sure that
the video clips from different cameras can be well synchronized later for comparison purposes.
To choose the most suitable NTP Server to synchronize date and time with, please refer to the
worldwide pool of NTP Servers: http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/
When choosing Set Manually mode, you can adjust the date and time by the select boxes. Choose
the appropriate Time Zone from the select box, too. If your location is not listed there, then pick any of
the listed zones which GMT is identical with your location.
For the countries with daylight saving policy, there is Day Light Saving function with two different
types:
Type 1 – define the starting or ending time of daylight saving period by the number of the week in the
month (First, Second, Third or Last week).
Type 2 – define the starting or ending time of daylight saving period by the exact date in the month
(1-31).
Whether to choose Type 1 or Type 2, please refer to the daylight saving policy of the given country.

3.8 Network
The section Network provides the list of network related functions and services. The [+] mark before
Network indicates that the list can be expanded by clicking on it. Once expanded, the list can later be
collapsed again by clicking on the [-] mark.
3.8.1 IP Address Filtering
By “IP Address Filtering” function it is possible to define which devices (their IP addresses) are
allowed to connect to this camera, and which devices are forbidden to connect to this camera.
Check the box “Enabled” to activate the IP address filtering function and press Apply.
Below you can select either “Allowed” or “Blocked” list to add items there and Enable them with the
checkbox behind each row.
58
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
“Allowed” mode will refuse access to all IP addresses except the ones listed below.
“Blocked” mode will accept all incoming access except the IP addresses listed below.
Using Netmask (Subnet Mask) allows you to set filtering for a w hole range of IP address at once,
without the need to enter all of them individually. If you are not sure about the function of Netmask,
then you should use 255.255.255.255, and it will affect only a single IP address per line of entry, or use
255.255.255.0 to use the same setting for all IP addresses starting with the same three numbers. .
After changing any of the items above, press Apply to save the changes. The Reset button undoes
the changes that had just been made but not Applied yet.
Do not accidentally block your own IP address that you are connecting from; otherwise,
you will not be able to access the camera any more to undo the changes. If this happens
by mistake, you can do the hardware reset – it will clear all the filtering rules.

3.8.2 Port Mapping
The section Port Mapping provides the list of services and protocols that require their own port
number for communication. By default, the camera already has all the ports defined. On this page, the
user can modify the port numbers in case there is a specific need for that. Most often, the HTTP port is
changed to something other than 80 in order to match with easy-to-remember port forwarding rules of
the router that acts as a bridge between local area network and Internet.
Some items appear only if the camera model supports the function.

3.8.3 HTTPS
HTTPS protocol allows creating a secure channel over an insecure network in order to protect the data
sent between the camera and its counterpart. Two things are required to have a s ecure
communication – encrypted data, and verified counterpart of the communication. To make sure that
the messages are being sent and received from true counterpart, the certificate is needed.

There are two methods to create certificates – Certificate Signing Request (CSR) and Self-Signed
Certificate.
Certificate Signing Request (CSR): User uses a s igned certificate issued by trusted Certification
Authority (CA).
Self-Signed Certificate: User wants to use the certificate created and issued by user himself.
Press Create or Create Self-Signed Certificate button and configure settings in the pop-up screen to
install the certificate.
Note that the new setting will only take effect after Save & Reboot.
3.8.4 IEEE 802.1X
IEEE 802.1X is an IEEE standard for port-based Network Access Control. 802.1X authentication
involves three parties: a supplicant, an authenticator, and an authentication server.
The supplicant is a client device (such as an IP camera) that wishes to attach to the LAN/WLAN. The
authenticator is a net work device, such as an E thernet switch or wireless access point; and the
authentication server is typically a host running software supporting the RADIUS and EAP protocols.
The authenticator acts like a security guard to a protected network. The supplicant (i.e., client device)
is not allowed access through the authenticator to the protected side of the network until the
supplicant’s identity has been validated and authorized. An analogy to this is providing a valid passport
at an airport before being allowed to pass through security to the terminal. With 802.1X port-based
authentication, the supplicant provides credentials, such as user name/password or digital certificate,
to the authenticator, and the authenticator forwards the credentials to the authentication server for
verification. If the authentication server determines the credentials are valid, the supplicant (client
device) is allowed to access resources located on the protected side of the network.

3.8.5 SNMP Setting
The SNMP Setting item displays the SNMP configuration page.
SNMP provides an easy way to manage network devices. The main features are:
(1)
Monitoring device uptime
(2)
System detail description. (e.g., model name, model description and firmware version.)
(3)
Collect interface information. (e.g., MAC address, interface speed and local port.)
(4)
Measuring network interface throughput.
63
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
To use SNMP, just enable SNMP function in the camera (SNMP agents) and run SNMP management
software in server (NMS: Network Management Station) to connect to the devices.
The SNMP agent supports versions 1, 2 and 3. SNMP v1 is the initial implementation of SNMP. SNMP
v2 is proposed to enhance the performance of management, such as the communication of server and
devices, the confirmation of information delivery and receipt. Primary additions in SNMP v3 concern
security and remote configuration enhancements.
SNMP v1/v2 uses “Community” name as password to authenticate identity. “Read Community” is the
password for server to get information from devices. “Write Community” is the password for server to
edit values on devices. The default is “public” for Read Community and “write” for Write Community. Of
course, you can set any other password as your read/write community.
You can enable v1, v2 or both. Click “Apply” after you’ve completed the setup.
The security method of SNMP v3 uses account/password for authentication. “Security Name” is the
account name to be us ed with your “Password”. The default security name is “public” and the
password must be at least 8 characters long. You also can set any other security name or password.
Click “Apply” after you’ve completed the setup.
SNMP function is now enabled. You may now install and run the SNMP management software on
computer server.
64
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
SNMP Trap Usage:
SNMP traps enable notifications from devices. Devices may send message to the management server
whenever significant events occur such as cold start, warm start and authentication failure. The
manager will get the information immediately and take action if necessary.
Cold start means device reboot by power disconnection. Warm start means device reboot by
firmware without power disconnection. If there are other parties that attempt to connect to the device
with a wrong security password under SNMP v1, v2 or v3 setting, the device will send an
authentication failure message to the management server.
To enable SNMP Trap function in the camera, type the IP address of the computer running the SNMP
management software and type trap community as password to allow server to get trap message from
device (Default is public). Select available traps and click “Apply”.

3.9 IP Settings
The IP Settings section provides the options to define how the camera would obtain its IP address,
and to which DNS server should the camera connect, in order to resolve domain names.
3.9.1 Connection Type
The Connection Type allows defining the method of obtaining the IP address of the camera. By
default, the camera is in Dynamic IP Address mode and attempts to get the IP address from a DHCP
server. If such attempt fails after several seconds (for example, the DHCP server does not exist), the
camera will automatically assign itself an IP address, listed under the Static IP Address.
69
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Host Name is used to identify the camera by a DHCP server. In some networks with very strict security
policy, it is required that all the network devices should have their host name, and when the devices
attempt to access the network by requesting an IP address from a DHCP server, the DHCP server
would check if the host name is among the allowed devices. On this page, it is possible to edit the Host
Name and enable or disable the use of host name.
Most installation projects include clear network topology and static IP addresses for each camera. In
such cases, you can change the camera to Static IP Address mode and modify the IP Address,
Subnet Mask and Gateway accordingly.
In some rare cases, the camera may be connected to the control center over Internet. Usually, the
most cost efficient way is to use ADSL connection with PPPoE. To avoid the unexpected changes of IP
addresses by Internet Service Provider upon the restart of the camera, it is recommended to activate a
DDNS service for such scenario, and let the control center connect to the camera by the domain name
instead. Please refer to the DDNS section for more details.
70

3.9.2 DNS
The DNS section allows setting up the Domain Name Service for the camera. The camera will connect
to the DNS server when there is a need to resolve a domain name for sending data to.
The most common usage is the FTP or e-mail server in the Event Handler section, which is defined by
using domain names. Without having DNS service configured, the camera would not know how to
resolve the domain names of FTP or e-mail servers.
It is possible to configure both Primary and Secondary DNS servers. The Secondary DNS Server will
be used when the connection to the Primary DNS Server fails.

3.9.3 DDNS
There are surveillance solutions that consist of single cameras scattered over a wide territory,
therefore, each of those cameras should be connected to Internet in order to become accessible by
Control Centers, such as chain stores, bus stops, currency exchange booths, etc.
In such cases, one of the practical networking solutions is to use DSL modem on camera site and let
the camera obtain the dynamic IP address from the Internet Service Provider through the DSL modem
using PPPoE connection, which is much more cost-effective than applying for static IP address.
However, there is one dr awback in this solution – in order to do t he remote surveillance from the
71
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Control Center, the NVR Server in the Control Center has to know the address of the IP camera at all
times in order to get the video stream from the camera. If the camera’s network connection has been
reset for any reason, the camera will get a new IP address through DSL modem, which may be
different from the previous one. NVR will not know about this change, and the connection between the
camera and NVR will fail.
There however exists a solution that makes sure the NVR can find the camera even if the camera IP
changes frequently. Our cameras support Dynamic DNS or DDNS service that allows frequently
changing IP be mapped to a c ertain unchangeable domain name. The mapping database and its
updating engine are hosted in one of the Dynamic DNS servers, the camera supports PLANET DDNS
services for free.
Every time the IP camera gets an IP that is different from previous one, it notifies the public DDNS
Service about the change. The DDNS Service updates its database immediately, mapping the
assigned domain name (for example camera123.planetddns.com) to the new IP address. In NVR
settings, only the domain name (camera123. planetddns.com) is used to identify the camera. Every
time when NVR needs to connect to the camera, it asks from DDNS Service what the current camera’s
IP is. The DDNS Service instantly responds to NVR and tells it the camera’s IP. Now NVR will use the
IP of the camera to connect to the camera and the video stream from the camera to NVR can be
initiated.
As a result, NVR can always find the IP camera regardless of frequently changing IP address of the
camera. Since there are so many public DDNS Services available, the PPPoE-based connection is
really a good and low-cost solution for single-camera sites.

3.10 Video & Audio
The section Video or Video & Audio (for audio supported cameras) provides the options to adjust the
video quality, configure the streaming details of the camera, and audio settings (for Audio supported
cameras only), which will be described on the succeeding pages.
The default settings of the camera are sufficient for most environments and the video adjustments are
not necessary. The following sections explain the ways to configure the video quality or streaming
details in case it is required to do so.
The [+] mark before Video indicates that the list can be expanded by clicking on it. Once expanded,
the list can later be collapsed again by clicking on the [-] mark.
3.10.1 Camera Options
In general, the Camera Options submenu allows users to set the Line Frequency and High Frame
Mode properties of the camera.

Line Frequency is the function that adjusts the shutter speed options to match with the
frequence of artificial light source of given country. For example, in Europe the light frequency
(due to power supply frequency of lights) is 50Hz, that is 50 flashes per second. By setting line
frequency to 50Hz in such case, the shutter speed options will be proportional with light source
frequency, such as 1/25s, 1/50s, 1/100s, etc.
It is necessary to have the camera’s Line Frequency adjusted according to the power
75

frequency of the light source to avoid flickering effect.
The natural light source (sun light) is a seamless flow of light – the Line Frequency setting does
not matter for the cameras that are only exposed to natural light.

High Frame Mode allows users to select the resolution with 60fps frame rate, where some
video settings such as Exposure and White Balance, etc. will be automatically configured. This
configuration will be set as the video stream 1 and the original configuration of stream 1 will now
be video stream 2 and so on.

3.10.2 Compression
The Compression section allows the user to define the compression settings of the video streams 1, 2,
and 3. The purpose of compression is to reduce the bandwidth and VMS storage consumption.
Usually the stream 1 is configured to be the best quality stream for NVR recording purposes while the
stream 2 and 3 are configured to be with the basic quality for the live view of NVR or mobile device, to
minimize the computing power of NVR used for video decoding.
Parameters
Encoder Type
H.264 Profile
Description
There are two encoder types available: H.264 (High Profile) and MJPEG.
This item is available only if the Encoder Type is H.264. The H.264 Profile
defines the video compression scheme: High Profile, Main Profile, and
77
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Parameters
Description
Baseline. These schemes vary from least compressed, Baseline, to most
compressed, High Profile. By default, the H.264 Profile is High Profile,
which provides the most compression with the best video quality, but more
computing power.
Some third-party video management system has longer latency or takes
more time to decode High Profile compression scheme, in this case, you
can select Main Profile or Baseline. In order to get the same video quality,
you can select a higher bit rate with lower compression; this is the same as
having a lower bit rate with a High Profile. For example, a video on High
Profile with 2M bit rate will have the same video quality as a video with
Baseline Profile at 3.5M bit rate.
It is used to define the aspect ratio of VGA stream – it can be either 4:3 ratio
VGA Aspect Ratio
(640x480) or 16:9 ratio (640x360). When “Auto Detected” is chosen, the
VGA stream will follow the ratio of the higher resolution stream, to ensure
the identical view of stream 1 and stream 2.
Depending on the camera model, the number of available resolutions may
be different. The default resolution setting of the camera may not
Resolution
necessarily be the maximum resolution of the camera. If the user wants to
use the maximum resolution, it is possible to do i t here. The maximum
possible resolution of stream 2 will be smaller than stream 1.
Frame Rate
Defines the amount of frames per second.
Under “Constant Bit Rate” mode (CBR), the camera keeps the stable bitrate
regardless of the complexity of the scene. Under this mode, the video
quality may vary if the bit rate value is set too low. It is easier to do storage
Video Bit Rate Mode
and network bandwidth consumption estimations under this mode
(only for H.264)
compared to Variable Bit Rate mode.
Under “Variable Bit Rate” mode (VBR), the camera will keep the video
quality stable while the bit rate may occasionally go up or down, depending
on the complexity of the scene.
Defines the upper limit of the bitrate (only available under CBR mode). The
bitrate will be floating slightly under that limit. For example, if the limit is set
as 2M, the bitrate will be floating around 1.6~2.0 Mbps.
Video Max Bit Rate
(only for H.264)
If the Video Max Bit Rate is chosen as “Unlimited”, then the “Video Bit Rate”
selection box will appear that defines the bit rate level.
Under CBR mode, when Video Max Bit Rate is chosen “Unlimited”, the user
Video Bit Rate
can define the AVERAGE bit rate. For example, if the Video Bit Rate is
(only for H.264)
chosen 2M, then occasionally, the actual bit rate may go below or beyond
2M, but in the long run, the average bit rate will be very close to 2M. This

mode allows the most accurate storage estimations, however, while
planning the bandwidth, please consider the occasional peaks of bit rate.
H.264 Compression:
Under VBR mode, the bit rate will be floating while the video quality will be
Quality
stable and follows the quality standard set by the user. The user can choose
either “High”, “Medium” or “Low” quality. The higher is the quality level, the
more bit rate the camera will use to achieve the target quality.
MJPEG Compression:
The user can define the quality with the numeric scale from 1 to 100. The
default MJPEG quality is 60. The higher is the quality level, the more bit rate
the camera will use to achieve the target quality.
Under VBR mode it is possible to adjust the GOP length - that is the
occurrence rate of I-frames. By default, there is one I-frame per second. For
GOP
(only for H.264)
example, in case of 30fps, there will be 1 I-frame and 29 P-frames every
second by default. When the GOP is changed to “1 I-frame per 5 seconds”,
then there will be o ne I-frame, followed by 149 P-frames. In case of the
static scenes, long GOP can further minimize the bandwidth and storage
consumption.

3.10.3 Video
Upon opening the section named Video, the live view of the Stream 1 of the camera will appear.
Usually, Stream-1 is configured to be high quality video with maximum resolution and frame rate for

Motion Detection
The “Motion Detection” section allows the user to configure the video motion detection system of the
camera. Motion detection regions are based on Stream 1. By default, there are three (3) enabled
pre-defined regions covering the whole camera view.
Click on “Setup” to adjust the motion detection regions or its parameters. Microsoft Internet Explorer
browser is required to configure the motion detection regions.
There are three independently configurable motion detection regions in the camera. Each
motion detection region has 6 configuration parameters:
Enabled or disabled
Location of the region
Size of the region
Sensitivity
Trigger threshold
Trigger interval
Enabled or disabled
Although all 3 motion detection regions are enabled by default, each can be disabled and enabled
individually. Look at the example: Only region 1 is enabled while 2 and 3 are disabled. The disabled
regions disappear from the video display.
81
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Note that the number of the motion detection region is written in the upper left corner of the region.
Location of the region
You can move the motion detection region anywhere on the field of view by dragging the top of the
motion detection rectangle as shown on the image. The motion detection regions may even be
overlapping if you like.
82
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Size of the region
By dragging the lower right corner of the motion detection region you can change the size of the region.
The maximum size of the region can even be as big as the whole screen.
Sensitivity
Sensitivity is the parameter that helps us distinguish actual moving targets (people, vehicles) from the
slightly moving background, such as leaves of the trees waving in the wind. In order to avoid false
alarms, we might want the camera be able to ignore small motion. The higher is the sensitivity level of
the camera the smaller shift of the object is needed to trigger the alarm. For example, if the object
within motion detection region has moved for about 1-3 pixels during two video frames, then such
small motion will be discarded by camera if the sensitivity is low, and will still trigger an alarm if the
sensitivity is high. In other words, you can think of sensitivity level as a reversed speed limit – the
smaller is the sensitivity, the faster are the objects allowed to move without being detected.
The biggest challenge of motion detection configuration is to find the settings that do not produce false
alarms and at the same time do not miss any actual intrusions. The rule of thumb is: the sensitivity
should be as high as possible while not producing false alarms. The default sensitivity level of the
cameras is 70 (on a scale of 0-100) and it is a good setting for most standard cases.
83
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Trigger threshold
Look at the moving object entering the area of motion detection: although moving quite slowly, it
caused motion activity – several pixel regions reported a motion that was faster than allowed “speed
limit” of sensitivity (70).
The blue graph on the right side of the image shows how many percent of pixels within the motion
detection region were considered as “currently in motion”. The activity panel itself is a timeline – for
each moment of time you can see the height of the blue bars. You may notice that at certain moment
the tallest bars in the activity graph reached about 25% (a quarter of the total height in activity panel) –
it means, 25% of this motion detection area were filled with moving pixels at that moment. By visual
observation you can also see that the object standing inside the motion detection region indeed covers
about 25% of its size.
What if the object is really small but moves rather fast (gets triggered by the current sensitivity level)?
For example, we want to detect people but not the cat walking in the room. Although both people and
cat may move with the speed that will trigger motion, they have different size of triggered pixels. For
example, a human passing by the motion detection region will trigger 25% of pixels in that region while
the cat would trigger only 2%. Since we want to have a real alarm in case of human or vehicle passing
by while ignoring birds, cats, butterflies, mice, etc, we need a filter that can define how many percent of
triggered pixels will be considered as a real alarm. This parameter is called trigger threshold. The
default value of trigger threshold is 10%. It means, only the objects that are bigger than 10% of the
motion detection region size and move faster than allowed by sensitivity level (70) will produce actual
alarm.
84
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
How to choose the most optimal trigger threshold level? The rule of thumb, keep the trigger
threshold as small as possible while not causing false alarms by the moving objects that are
not humans or vehicles.
You can have a different sensitivity level and trigger threshold level for each motion detection region.
In order to understand all of the above even better, please refer to the table below containing four
possible combinations of settings using sensitivity level and trigger threshold percentage.
The objects listed in each cell will trigger an alarm under given settings:
Low threshold (0-5%)
Low sensitivity
Big and fast
(0-65)
High threshold (5-100%)
Big and fast
Small and fast
Big and fast
Big and fast
High sensitivity
(65-100)
Big and slow
Small and fast
Big and slow
Small and slow
The camera’s default sensitivity is 70 and threshold is 10%. By these default values, only the
rabbit and the turtle would trigger an alarm while the butterfly and the snail would be ignored by the
motion detection system.
Important: Please remember that changing the size of the motion detection region has an impact on
the threshold – the bigger is the size of the motion detection region the smaller should be the threshold
value if you want the same object size to trigger motion. For example, if you increase the motion
detection region to twice the previous size, please remember to reduce the threshold to half its original
value (from 10% to 5%). On the other hand, changing the location of the motion detection region has
no impact on threshold.
Trigger interval
The last configuration item is the trigger interval. It is the time period from the beginning of the
triggered event during which the all motion activities are ignored by the camera. This is designed to
avoid needless repetitive reporting of the same intrusion. Trigger interval 20 seconds would mean that
85
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
when the even happens, camera will take certain one-time actions and ignore the continuing activity in
the motion detection region for 20 seconds. When 20 seconds are over, the camera will produce a new
alarm if there are still action in the motion detection region, and take actions again.
There is one more item on the Motion Detection configuration page which was not explained above –
the Profile of Motion Detection. Think of them as Profile 1 (Runtime MD Profile) and Profile 2
(Event MD Profile). It means that you can configure two independent groups of Motion Detection
regions with at most 3 regions in each group. Normally, the Profile 1 (Runtime MD Profile) is used as
an active profile of the camera. However, in some cases it is possible to let the camera switch to Profile
2 by using the Event Handler system of the camera.
For example, you might want to have different motion detection parameters for day and night time.
Then the two profiles become really handy. In such case, remember to configure the motion detection
parameters for both profiles before moving on to configure the event response system.

Exposure/White Balance
The Exposure/White Balance section allows the user to configure Exposure (shutter, iris and gain
control) and White Balance settings. In most cases, the default settings are sufficient and no
adjustment is needed. Some options will only appear under certain Exposure/White balance modes.
Each mode is described in details below.
IR Exposure Compensation - Enabled
IR Exposure Compensation is available on all cameras with IR LEDs. This feature automatically
balances the IR exposure to eliminate over-exposed images cause by too much IR on the subject.
When enabled, the AE reference target is automatically adjusted to control the sensor’s shutter speed
and gain to compensate IR effect.
88
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Exposure Mode -Auto
In Auto Exposure Mode, you control the image brightness by configuring the AE Reference Target and
Slowest Auto Shutter.
AE Reference Target (Auto Exposure reference target) can be considered as the “Target Brightness
on Sensor”. The camera will use several internal parameters to achieve best quality with reference to
this. The higher this value, the brighter the overall scene, however, there may be more noise at
night in such case. The range of AE Reference Target is 1~255.
The camera will automatically control shutter speed, auto iris (if available) and signal gain to achieve
the target level set by the user. If the auto iris does not exist or is already opened to a maximum size,
and the image is still darker than the user defined target, it will further slow down the shutter speed
within the allowed range (set by user under Slowest Auto Shutter Speed) and increase the signal gain.
Slowest Auto Shutter Speed is the user defined threshold for slowest allowed speed of auto shutter.
For example, if by default the shutter speed would vary between 1/5s ~ 1/2000s depending on the
lighting conditions, then setting the Slowest Auto Shutter Speed to 1/30s would narrow down the auto
shutter range to work between 1/30s ~ 1/2000s. The purpose of allowing user to define the threshold
for slowest speed is to avoid motion blur caused by too slow shutter at night.
It is also important to know that very high shutter speed is not recommended for indoor solutions with
artificial light that flashes with certain frequency, as it may produce flickering effect, regardless of
Exposure mode.
In extreme low light conditions, the shutter speed is slown down to get more light into one image, but
not slower than the user defined threshold.
If the exposure time extends beyond the interval between frames (too slow shutter), (i.e. 1/30 second),
then the frame rate will be automatically reduced. Longer time in this value gives clearer images at
night for slow moving objects, but more motion blur for fast moving objects.
White balance refers to the capability of the camera to understand what “true white color is”. When
89
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
the camera knows the true white color, then the rest of the colors will be accurate, too. While human
eye can easily adapt to different lighting sources (even mixed sources, such as sun light through the
window and indoor lights turned on at the same time), the camera has to understand what is the
dominant light source in given scene and what is the “white color” of such light source.
By default, the camera is in auto white balance mode and attempts to recognize the light source and
its color spectrum automatically and adjusts the image accordingly. This function works continuously in
the background. It is re-evaluated for each frame, to make sure if there is any change in dominant light
source (e.g. the user closes the curtains to block the sun light and turns on the indoor lights).
In most cases the auto white balance works perfectly and the user does not have to adjust anything! In
some rare installation cases, especially when there are no white color objects in the field of view, and
the light sources are mixed, the camera may have difficulty to identify the true white color to fine tune
the rest of the colors.
In such cases, the installer can “help” the camera to understand the true colors by placing a white
object (for example a piece of white paper) in front of the camera to cover the whole field of view and
wait a few seconds – the auto white balance system will adjust the colors until the white paper will
really look white on the display. At that moment, the user can freeze these white balance settings by
pressing the Hold button. After pressing that button, the White Balance will switch from Auto mode to
Manual mode, together with the color values captured at the moment of Hold. The user can now
remove the white object from the field of view, and the colors will stay correct for given scene.
For advanced users, there is also an option to switch from Auto mode to Manual mode of White
Balance directly and input the R Gain and B Gain values manually.

Exposure Mode - Manual
When the lighting conditions are stable 24 hours a day, the advanced users may consider using
manual exposure mode, to further fine tune the image quality in order to fulfill the special project
90

ICA-E6265
requirements. Please note that in most cases, it is highly recommended to keep the camera in Auto
Exposure mode and let the intelligent system of the camera find the best possible exposure settings
instead.
In manual exposure mode, the user can directly manually adjust the signal Exposure Gain, Shutter
Speed, and even on select models. The White Balance and Line Frequency controls have already
been explained in the previous chapter.
WDR is disabled in manual exposure mode.

OSD/Privacy Mask
The OSD / Privacy Mask section allows user to do one of the two on-video operations:
(1) Add text to the upper or lower left corner of the video. This function is called Text Overlay or
On-Screen Display (OSD). It is possible to display the camera name, date and time, IP address
or any custom text as Text Overlay. The text is kept as small as possible and is not resizable.
The text can be read normally when the video is enlarged on the display to 1:1 ratio. The purpose
of having the text so small is to provide sufficient legal evidence while blocking the smallest
possible area of the video to avoid valuable video evidence being blocked by text overlay. The text
will be embedded into video and cannot be removed later upon playback or export.
(2) Cover up some sensitive areas of the video that should not be captured by the camera, such as
manager’s computer screen or bathroom entrance. This function is called Privacy Mask. It is
possible to configure several independent regions for masking. Microsoft Internet Explorer
browser is required to configure the Privacy Mask. The privacy masks will be embedded into video
and cannot be removed later upon playback or export.

Text Overlay (OSD) Setup
It is possible to define up to 4 regions of text. If more than 1 region of text is enabled and positioned in
the same location, then the texts will appear one below another, row by row.
In the example above, one region of text was enabled with blue color and 50% transparency, located
at left lower corner and containing the text of “Office View“ together with current date. The date would
be automatically changing every day, according to camera’s date and time settings. The result of the
example configuration would look like this (Live View page, 1:1 scale):

3.11 Event
This section describes how to set up the Event Handler, which deals with how the IP devices respond
to situations. Each IP device can have a maximum of 10 Event Rules. Each rule includes one single
trigger, and one or many responses. Several types of responses are available. And there are multiple
external servers for the device to interact with.
When setting up Event Handler, there are four types of settings. Event Server, Event Configuration,
Event List and Manual Event
Click the
item before Event to expand the list.
3.11.1 Event Server
Event servers define whom the device may interact with. They can be other servers or devices on the
network, or even the camera itself. Event Configuration sets up a list of what to tell the other party
during interaction. Event list lays down the rules and conditions about when to initiate which responses
from which triggers. The options available for Event rules are selected from the event servers
and event configurations.
Event servers are classified as FTP servers, SMTP servers and HTTP servers
96
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
FTP Server
FTP servers can receive snapshot or video uploads that are issued as part of the response from event
handlers. You may set up one FTP server.
To set up FTP servers, make sure to enter the network address of FTP server, the Network (FTP) port,
the User Name and Password of FTP account, Connection mode (Passive or Active) and Connection
time before timeout.
After changing any of the items above, press Apply to save the changes. The Reset button undoes
the changes that had just been made but not Applied yet.
SMTP Server
SMTP servers can send email upon request from the IP device. The email can be a simple subject
and text email, or attached with snapshot/video. You may set up two SMTP servers. The device will
first attempt to send the message via the Primary email SMTP server. If the first attempt fails (after the
maximum connecting time), the device will attempt to send it via the secondary SMTP server. If the
device sends email successfully via the primary SMTP server, then it will not use the secondary SMTP
server.
To set up SMTP servers, make sure to enable the SMTP account and choose the proper
97
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Authentication type. There are many types available. The default is Login. We recommend you to use
Auto Detection. Available authentication types include: Auto Detection, None, Login, Plain, Cram MD5,
Digest MD5 and PoP Relay. Please also enter the User Name, Password, the email address displayed
as sender (can be different than the user name), Network (SMTP server) address, Network (SMTP
server) Port number and Max Connection time before timeout (in seconds).
After changing any of the items above, press Apply to save the changes. The Reset button undoes
the changes that had just been made but not Applied yet.
HTTP Server
HTTP CGI servers are programs that run on web sites or many devices. They can be
custom-programmed to perform a large variety of actions based upon the input. You can define which
CGI server to connect to here, and the user / password required to log into the target server. The
actual message/command is setup in the Notification messages/URL commands section. You may
define two separate CGI servers.
IP devices are also CGI servers. This means that IP devices can now issue commands to each other,
which creates endless possibilities for highly coordinated response. The IP device can also give a
loopback command to itself, in effect changing almost all possible settings dynamically. For details on
the commands used to control the cameras, please contact your customer representative.
An example will help you gain a better sense of how to utilize this unique function. Camera A is a fixed
camera that looks at a corridor leading to the main hall. It has a motion detection window located near
the point where the corridor arrives at the large hall. Camera B is a PTZ camera located in the hall,
which is usually left on auto-tour patrol. When motion activity in the motion detection region triggers
MD1 in Camera A, this then in turn activates an event rule in Camera A that gives out a command to
Camera B. Camera B would then swivel to the preset point where the corridor leads into the entrance
and switch to higher bit rate to temporarily provide clearer image. After the event ends, Camera B will
go back to its normal routine in lower bit rate.
To set up HTTP servers, make sure to enable the HTTP server, enter the user name, the user

3.11.2 Event Configuration
Event configurations are the responses to be performed when an event is triggered. For most types
of responses, you can create several different preset responses, then mix and match in event rules.
The configurable responses are classified as Digital I/O ports, Notification messages, Upload
Video/Snapshot and Audio and Send URL Commands.
Digital I/O ports appear only for the camera models that support this function.
99
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Digital I/O ports
Digital input/output ports (select models only) are used to connect digital input (DI) and digital output
(DO) devices. DI is a trigger device like a switch or sensor (e.g., “panic button”), which when pressed
or triggered, notifies the camera to perform specific actions or the DO device to respond. DO’s can be
alarms or lights, etc.
The Digital I/O Ports page displays the number of available DI and DO ports on the camera, which
varies depending on camera model.
DI: To configure the digital input device, define the active level and trigger interval of the DI. The
default Active Level is “0”, which means the DI device remains inactive unless triggered. A good
example is a “panic button”, which always stays in inactive mode “0” until the button is pressed; when
the button is pressed, its active level becomes “1” which means the DI is triggered. Active level “1”
returns back to “0” (inactive mode) after the specified Interval. The Interval is the duration of time
when the trigger remains in active mode which is also the minimum time interval between the previous
trigger and the next. For example, if the interval is set to “5 seconds”, the DI will not respond if the
“panic button” is pressed within 3 seconds after the previous trigger. To issue another trigger, press the
button after 5 seconds from the previous trigger.
DO: To configure the digital output device, define the active level and response interval. The default
Active Level is “1”, which means the DO will turn to active mode and respond once triggered. The
duration of its response will last according to the set Interval. A good example is an alarm siren,
wherein the siren will start sounding only when it is triggered by an event or another device like a DI.
The siren will stop sounding once the set interval time elapsed.

Sound Detection
Sound detection is available on cameras with Audio in capability and is shown on the user interface
100
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
only if the Audio In function is enabled in Audio setup menu. Sound detection is used to trigger the
camera or another camera to perform specific actions or a digital output device, such as alarms or
lights, etc. to respond.
Check the Enabled box to enable Sound Detection.
The Trigger Interval refers to the time interval of the first detected sound to the next detected sound.
For example, if trigger interval is set at 5 (seconds), the next sound detection is triggered only after 5
seconds. If the next sound is detected 3 seconds after the first sound, the trigger is not activated.
To set the range or loudness of sound, set the Trigger Threshold. This helps define which sound is
considered loud enough to be a t rigger. For example, the sound of blowing wind should not be
considered, while the sound of a door creaking is a cause for alarm. The red line on the Activity graph
shows the threshold set at 15%. The blue graph shows the sound activity. If the blue graph exceeds
the red line, sound is triggered.
How to choose the most optimal trigger threshold level. The rule of thumb, keep the trigger threshold
as small as possible while not causing false alarms.

Notification message
*Pre-requisites: SMTP server / HTTP CGI server setup.
Notification messages may be sent to either an email or a HTTP CGI server. If sent to a CGI server, it
works the same as an URL command, but it does not allow a second message at end of event. You
may configure up to three preset massages. You can configure a message, but disable it. This will
allow you to keep the settings without using it, which will be useful in testing and troubleshooting.
To set up Notification Messages, make sure to enable the message and then determine what type of
message to send (HTTP CGI or email).
If you are sending to CGI server, you need to enter the CGI path, the URL command itself, and an
optional message.
If you are sending email, please enter the recipient e-mail address, the email subject, and the body
message.

Upload Video/snapshot and Audio
*Pre-requisites: SMTP server / FTP server / HTTP CGI server .
IP devices may send video recording / snapshots to your chosen server upon event. Video will be
in .RAW format, while snapshots will be .JPG files. You can define up to three groups of settings to
upload video/snapshot. Snapshots can be sent to FTP/HTTP CGI, e-Mail, or local storage (for select
models only), while video can only be uploaded to FTP, HTTP CGI servers, or local storage (for select
models). If Audio in is enabled in device, the uploaded video will include audio.

Sometimes it is useful to keep the settings for troubleshooting purposes, but keep them as disabled.
Upload Media to: These define the task at hand, and change the field that needs to be filled out.
Upload Period: IP device will provide video/snapshots for the number of seconds here. It will stop
uploading video/snapshot at the end of this period. If you have video management software recording
from this camera at the same time, the normal recording through NVR will not be affected, and goes on
throughout the event period and afterwards. But the special upload session will end as the event ends.
Image during Upload Period: This is used only by snapshots. This tells the camera how many
snapshots it should attempt to capture during the Upload Time. If this value is set to 0, then the IP
device will attempt to capture as many snapshots as possible. Depending upon the device loading, the
number of snapshots taken may not reach the number you specified.
Pre-Buffer Time: This is only used by video. If this is set to more than 0, then the IP device will start to
buffer video in its internal memory. The maximum pre buffer is 10 seconds. When an event requires
video upload, the IP device will first upload the video taken right before the event then keep uploading
until it reaches the upload time.
Image File Name/Upload Path: You will need to specify rule for file names and upload paths (upload
path is not needed for Email. Just put a slash “/” in the field). The rules contain flexible parameters. A
sample rule and corresponding filename will look like this:
Front_Door_%YYYY_%MM_%[email protected]%hh%mm%ss
[email protected]
Upload Path folders may also be named dynamically. For the IP device to create folders on FTP and
HTTP CGI servers properly, your FTP/CGI account will need to have permission to create folders. For
syntax on auto naming, please see online help or the inset box at the end of this section.
The symbol “%” cannot be the first character in filename or upload path. Please use either an alphabet
or a number as the starting character. For Upload Path, be sure to start and end eight a backslash“\”.
An example will be : \Backgate%MM%DD\
CGI path & Program: Some CGI servers may require special info and settings. Please refer to CGI
server designer for this section. IP devices do not allow upload of Snapshots / Video into their
embedded CGI servers.

Send URL commands
*Pre-requisites: HTTP CGI server setup .
URL commands can be sent to HTTP CGI servers upon event. This provides the possibility of highly
intelligent response upon event. IP devices and many other devices also have embedded CGI servers
that may be controlled.
When Event Handler sends an U RL command, it will send one set of command when the event is
triggered, and another as the event becomes inactive. Depending on the CGI design, the URL
commands may be able to be strung together, and multiple commands may be issued in a single line.
An example would be when the access control device at the entrance detects an entry, this device
105
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
provides a DI signal to the PTZ camera, and triggers an event. This event then sends a loopback
command to the PTZ Camera itself (by setting its own IP as the HTTP CGI server). The PTZ Camera
then moves to a preset location, stays until the event is over, and then moves back to another location.
At the same time it moves to the pre-set location, it increases the bitrate from 1M to 3M, and the frame
rate from 4 fps to 8 fps. The bitrate / fps changes are reverted at the end of event.
3.11.3 Event List
You may define a maximum of 10 Event rules, which will be shown in the abbreviated form in the Event
List panel. It will display under each Event ID, the days of the week it will be active, the start time and
duration of the active period, the type of the source of trigger, and the actions used in the response. If
the row is grayed out, this means the rule is currently not enabled and stays inactive.
You may start creating a new event by clicking the event ID number in the list, for example “2”.
There are several parts to the Event rule:
When is it active?
You may choose to enable the rule or not. The settings will be kept in internal memory even if the event
rule is disabled. Select the days in a weekly cycle in which this rule and schedule is active.
Determine the start time and dur ation of the active period. For example, a rule that lets motion
detection trigger snapshot uploads to FTP would only take place after 19:00 each day for 12 hours.
Outside of this time the rule will not be active.
106
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
In the example below, the event handler rule is active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
How is it triggered?
Events may be triggered by one of the several sources.
Scheduler: You can trigger an event based on the set schedule. For example, in the example below,
the schedule is set for an alarm to sound at 4:00, and will sound once every 5 minutes within the next
10 minutes.
DIs: For selected models only, the IP device may be triggered by Digital Input. Select the digital input
and make sure to configure it on the Event Configuration page
Motion: You may trigger the event if one or many Motion Detection regions encounter a motion trigger.
Trigger from any of them will initiate the event. The duration of event will be the same as the MD trigger
length, or the Trigger interval time, defined in the Motion Detection section on Video Adjust page. In
the example below, Motion Detection region 1 is used as the event trigger.
You may also ask the event to be repeatedly triggered during this scheduled time. The interval is
determined in minutes. You may use this with email / FTP upload to take snapshots at regular
intervals.
107
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Sound Detection: The event may be triggered when sound is detected. This feature is available on
cameras with Audio in capabilities only. The Sound Detection must be c onfigured first to use this
feature.
Switch to Night mode: This is available to selected models only. When camera changes between day
and night modes, the embedded event handler will notice this change, and may act upon this
information.
Potential uses include changing the motion detection profile to another set of Event MD parameters.
By having two sets of parameters each optimized for day and night, this provide better overall
accuracy in both day and night conditions. Some night time only MD regions may also be activated this
way. The event period will end when the camera returns to day mode, which will then reset the camera
to the original settings.
Device boots successfully: This will trigger the event responses once the device boots up. You can
use this to create a notification system that keeps record of when the device has been rebooted via
email.
Reboot device: This triggers the event response when the device is shut down via web UI “Save and
Reboot”. Use this to keep record of when was the device setting edited. Note that this will not take
effect when the device is unplugged, as this is not normal shutdown.
Fail to write storage (with storage card only): Trigger occurs when there is an error in writing data to
the memory card.
Remove storage media (with storage card only): Trigger occurs when the memory card is suddenly
removed from the device.
What responses will occur?
Available responses vary depending on what triggered the event.
Digital Output (selected models only): This is a useful link to other devices. Click to include this in the
response for this rule.
Send notification Message: Select from the three pre-defined messages which you’ve setup in the
Event Configuration section. You may enable multiple messages at the same time. For sending Email,
please limit the recipient to one per event rule. If you need to send email to more than one recipient,
please use separate event rules triggered by the same trigger.
108
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Upload video/snapshots: Select which of the event configurations to include in this response set. If
you are sending email via upload video and sending notification message at the same time, the
system will automatically merge the two emails into one. The subject and image will be based upon the
Upload snapshot Event configuration enabled, but the message in the body text will be based upon the
Notification messages.
In general, please stick to the “one email per event rule” limit for best performance.
Change Motion Detection profile: This will switch the profile of the selected Motion Detection region
from Runtime profile to Event profile. The profile will return to runtime settings at the end of this event.
You may program one m otion detection region to be disabled at runtime, but enable it with event
handler under some circumstances.
Send URL command: Select the URL command to include in the response set. Two different
commands will be sent at the time when the event is triggered and un-triggered. For example, going to
a preset point, if the device is a PTZ camera, and there are preset points already configured in PTZ
setup page, then you may include this in the response section of the event rule by using Send URL
Command method. It is possible to let the camera return to another preset point at the end of the
event.
Change to Day/Night Mode (Selected models only): For some models, you may force the Camera
into Day or Night mode. The camera will return to its previous setting (whether auto or forced day/
night) upon the end of the event.
After changing any of the items above, press Apply to save the changes. The Reset button undoes
the changes that had just been made but not Applied yet.
3.11.4 Manual Event
You may select one event in the Manual Event area below to be triggered via web user interface.

3.12 Local Storage
The camera that comes with built-in local storage capability will have the Local Storage menu shown
on the Setup Page when a memory card is inserted into the memory card slot of the device.
Video recording configurations such as the length of recording, video stream, etc. must be setup on
the Event Configuration menu. After setting the Upload Video configurations, create an event on the
Event List menu to either record the video on a scheduled time or when triggered by an event. Note
that only videos can be recorded on the memory card, snapshots cannot.
Make sure to “format” the memory card first when using the card for the first time or if the card has
been used in other devices
Click the
Local Storage menu on the Setup Page. Three submenu items are available – Status,
Utilities, and File Management. If the memory card has not been formatted or mounted, the File
Management submenu is grayed out and cannot be accessed.
3.12.1 Status
When the mass storage has not been formatted or mounted yet, the camera would not know the status
of the storage, and the output would be as follows:
If the mass storage has been formatted or mounted already, the Status page will show the details of
the storage:
111
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
In case of IP cameras with installed memory cards, the Storage Media Type will show “Micro SD”. The
capacity of the disk is shown in Gigabytes.
The camera supports microSDHC cards.
3.12.2 Utilities
The “Utilities” are responsible for managing the storage itself rather than the files on the storage. There
are three utilities – Mount, Format and Scan.
3.12.2.1 Mount Storage Media
When the Mount storage media button shows “Mount” button, then it means that the mass storage has
been inserted to the camera, but the connection between camera and the storage has not been
established yet. By pressing the “Mount” button, the storage becomes active. It is then possible to
check the Status of the disk, write or read data on the disk, remotely access the storage by Web
Configurator or FTP client, etc.
Mount
When pressing the “Mount” button, the mounting process will start.
112
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Unmount
Once the drive has been mounted, it can later be unmounted by pressing the “Unmount” button, if
necessary.
That Unmount function is used when the camera is to be shut down for maintenance or when the mass
storage has to be physically removed for some reason. The purpose of unmounting is to protect the
currently processed data on mass storage at the moment of removal of the storage. If the local storage
is being used by camera and s ome videos or snapshots are being recorded to the disk, then the
sudden shutdown or removal of the disk without unmounting may corrupt the file that is currently being
used by the camera. The rest of the files are not influenced in any way.
Please note that “Save&Reboot” function of the camera also does unmounting automatically for the
user.
Mount Failure
If the inserted disk’s file system is not EXT3, then the Mounting would fail and an error message would
appear. The common reason is that the disk may have previously been used in other file systems,
such as Windows based PC or photo camera. If the disk does not have the right file system, then you
113
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
will get an error message. In that case the disk has to be f ormatted first. The camera provides
convenient formatting function within web management.
3.12.2.2 Format Storage Media
Format
When the disk is inserted to the camera for the first time, it is recommended to format it, to make sure
the file system of the disk would be compatible with camera. If the disk has already been mounted, the
“Format” button is grayed out, unmount the disk first to enable the “Format” button.
Format Failure
If the disk is damaged or it is not within the specifications of the camera, the formatting may fail. When
this happens, there is no way to continue using that disk, and it has to be replaced with a proper one.
114
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
3.12.2.3 Scan Storage Media
Scan
To check the “health” of the disk, it is possible to use the “Scan” function. If the disk has already been
mounted, the “Scan” button is grayed out, unmount the disk first to enable the “Scan” button.
Scan Failure
The scanning would fail if the disk is not recognized by the camera. Make sure that the disk has been
properly formatted and mounted to the camera.
3.12.3 File Management
The File Management submenu allows users to graphically see the amount of videos recorded on the
memory card through its timeline, as well as the type of triggers that may have occurred during the
recording.
Click a video timeslot from the timeline bar to select and view its snapshot. A selected video timeslot is

The camera memory is allocated to deliver continuous live streaming to all connected users
or devices, such as NVR recording purposes. The camera will store as many P-frames as
possible on the memory card. However, due to camera memory limitation, the camera may
record only the I-frames on the memory card.
To increase the number of P-frames to record on the memory card, it is recommended to
lower the FPS, bit rate and resolution of stream 1.

Appendix C. Ping IP Address
The ping (stands for Packet Internet Groper) command is used to detect whether a specific IP address
is accessible by sending a packet to the specific address and waiting for a reply. It’s also a very useful
tool to confirm whether or not Internet camera is installed or if the IP address conflicts with any other
device over the network.
If you want to make sure the IP address of the camera, utilize the ping command as follows:

Start a DOS window.

Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the camera.
The replies, as illustrated below, will provide an explanation to the problem.
If you want to detect any other device that conflicts with the IP address of the camera, you also can
utilize the ping command but you must disconnect the camera from the network first.
124
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Appendix D. Configuring Port Forwarding
Manually
The device can be used with a router. If the device wants to be accessed from the WAN, its IP address
needs to be set up as a fixed IP address. The port forwarding or Virtual Server function of router also
needs to be set up. This device supports UPnP traversal function. Therefore, user could use this
feature to configure port forwarding of NAT router first. However, if user needs to configure port
forwarding manually, please follow the steps below:
Manually installing the device with a router on your network is an easy 3–step procedure as follows:
1. Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
2. Access the Router with Your Web browser
3. Open/Configure Virtual Server Ports of Your Router
1. Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
The device must be assigned a local and fixed IP Address that allows it to be recognized by the router.
Manually setup the device with a fixed IP address, for example, 192.168.0.100.
2. Access the Router with Your Web browser
The following steps generally apply to any router that you have on your network. PLANET wireless AP
is used as an example to clarify the configuration process. Configure the initial settings of the router by
following the steps outlined in the router’s Quick Installation Guide.
125
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
If you have cable or DSL service, you will most likely have a dynamically assigned WAN IP address.
‘Dynamic’ means that your router’s WAN IP address can change from time to time depending on your
ISP. A dynamic WAN IP address identifies your router on the public network and allows it to access the
Internet. To find out what your router’s WAN IP address is, go to the Status screen on your router and
locate the WAN information for your router. As shown on the following page the WAN IP address will
be listed. This will be the address that you will need to type in your web browser to view your camera
over the Internet. Be sure to uncheck the Reset IP address at next boot button at the top of the
screen after modifying the IP address. Failure to do so will reset the IP address when you restart your
computer.
Your WAN IP Address will be listed here.
3. Open/set Virtual Server Ports to enable remote image viewing
The firewall security features built into the router and most routers prevent users from accessing the
video from the device over the Internet. The router connects to the Internet over a series of numbered
ports. The ports normally used by the device are blocked from access over the Internet. Therefore,
these ports need to be m ade accessible over the Internet. This is accomplished using the Virtual
Server function on the router. The Virtual Server ports used by the camera must be opened through
the router for remote access to your camera.
Follow these steps to configure your router’s Virtual Server settings

Click Enabled.

Enter a unique name for each entry.

Select Both under Protocol Type (TCP and UDP)

Enter your camera’s local IP address (e.g., 192.168.0.100, for example) in the Private IP
field.

The HTTP, Control Server and Streaming Server ports should be added into router. If you
are using the default camera port settings, enter 80, 6001 an d 6002 into the Public and
Private Port section and click Add.
A check mark appearing before the entry name will indicate that the ports are enabled.
126
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
Some ISPs block access to port 80. Be sure to check with your ISP so that you can open the
appropriate ports accordingly. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port 80, you will need to
change the port the camera uses from 80 to something else, such as 8080. Not all routers
are the same, so refer to your user manual for specific instructions on how to open ports.
Enter valid ports in the Virtual Server section of your router. Please make sure to check the box on
this line to enable settings. Then the device can be accessed from WAN by the router’s WAN IP
address.
By now, you have finished your entire PC configuration for this device.

Appendix E. Waterproofing the Cable
Connections
The camera itself is waterproof, however take note that the cable connections are not. If the camera is
mounted directly on the ceiling/wall where the cables pass through the ceiling/wall, then your
installation is complete and you do not need to waterproof the cable connections.
However, if the camera is mounted where the cables may be exposed then it is recommended to
waterproof the cable connections or use a junction box (not included in the package).
The camera comes with a Cable Gland and Conduit Gland. It is recommended to use one of these
glands when a high PoE injector will be used with the camera. However, if the bundled power supply
will be used or digital input/output devices will be connected, it is recommended to house the cables
inside the junction box.

Appendix G. Connecting Audio Devices
The camera comes with audio input and output jacks to connect a m icrophone or speaker to the
camera. The audio jacks are covered with a rubber protection. If using an audio input device, such as
a microphone with a built-in amplifier, connect the device to the Audio Input jack (red) of the camera.
If using an audio output device, such as a s peaker, connect the device to the Audio Output jack
(green) jack of the camera.
If the camera is installed outdoors, be sure to wrap the audio connectors with waterproof tape (can be
purchased in local hardware stores).
1.
Make sure that the connected audio input device has a built-in amplifier. Connecting
an ordinary microphone will dwarf sounds and will result in inaudible recording.
2.
If the audio connectors will not be used, leave the rubber caps on to avoid dust from
entering the connectors.

ICA-E6265
Appendix H. Connecting Digital Input/ Digital
Output Devices
Depending on your surveillance needs, you may need to connect digital input or output devices to your
camera to trigger events or notifications.
Digital Input (DI) devices can be used to notify the camera about an activity in the camera site. DI can
be triggers of events. For example, you can connect a “panic button” to the camera; as such when the
panic button is pressed, the alarm signal will be sent through the camera. Other common DI device
applications are emergency button, smoke detector, passive infrared sensor, etc.
Digital Output (DO) devices are external devices that are activated by the camera upon an event
inside the camera. For example, you can connect an “alarm horn” to the camera as such when an
event occurs inside the camera (e.g. detected intruder), the alarm horn will sound. Other common DO
device applications are motion-triggered lights, electric fence, magnetic door locks, etc.
The camera comes with two terminal blocks to connect DI/DO devices.
Map the pins according to one of the pin combinations in the table below. Loosen the screw and insert
the wire into the pin slot on the terminal block, then tighten the screw to secure the wire. Connect the
terminal block to the corresponding cable connector.

138
2 Mega-pixel IR PoE Plus Speed Dome IP Camera
ICA-E6265
In case of connecting more than one DI device, the GND pin can be commonly shared by all
four DI devices.
In case of connecting two DO devices, the 12V pin can be commonly shared by the two DO
devices.

Typical Connection
The table below shows the DI/DO connection specifications:
Device
DI
Connection design
Voltage
DO
TTL - compatible logic levels
To trigger (low)
Logic level 0: 0V ~ 0.4V
Normal (high)
Logic level 1: 3.1V ~ 30V
Current
10mA ~ 100mA
Connection design
Transistor (Open Collector)
Voltage & Current
< 24V DC, < 50mA
Based on these specifications, if the DI device has a voltage of 0V ~ 30V or the DO device has a
voltage of < 24V (< 50mA), then the camera can supply internal power to these devices and there is no
need to connect the DI/DO device to an external power source.
In this case, use the GND and the DI1 cables to connect a DI device and use the 12V and the DO1
cables to connect a DO device. See wiring scheme below:
Consequently, to connect a second DI or DO device, use the GND and DI1 cables to connect the
second DI device, and the 12V and DO2 cables for the second DO device.

High Voltage DO Device Connection
Even though the camera provides 12V power, this may not be enough for some high voltage DO
devices, such as a ceiling light or a motor that opens or closes a gate. In this case, there is a need to
connect an external relay. See wiring scheme below:
Note that when choosing an appropriate relay, please refer to its specifications and make sure they
match the above design. The triggering circuit voltage has to be around 12V DC and the
switch-controlled circuit voltage has to match the external power supply (e.g. 110V AC or 220V AC).
The illustration below is a graphic example of connecting a relay to a high voltage DO device.
