BEFORE YOU START
•If you want to set the network camera via a LAN (Local Area Network), please refer
to Section 2.1 Setting the Network Camera over the LAN.
•If you want to set the network camera via a WAN (Wide Area Network), please refer
to Section 2.2 Setting the Network Camera over the WAN.
2.1 SETTING THE NETWORK CAMERA OVER THE LAN
PURPOSE
To view and configure the camera via a LAN, you need to connect the network camera
in the same subnet with your computer, and install the SADP software to search and
change the IP of the network camera.
For the detailed introduction of SADP software, please refer to Appendix 1.
2.1.1 WIRING OVER THE LAN
The following figures show the two ways of cable connection of a network camera and
a computer:
PURPOSE
•To test the network camera, you can directly connect the network camera to the
computer with a network cable as shown in Figure 2-1.
•Refer to the Figure 2-2 to set the network camera over the LAN via a switch or a
router.
Figure 2.1.1 - Connecting Directly
Network Camera
User Manual

Figure 2.1.2 - Connecting via a Switch or a Router
2.1.2 DETECTING AND CHANGING IP ADDRESS
You need the IP address to visit the network camera.
STEPS
1. To get the IP address, you can install the SADP client software to list the online devices.
Please refer to the user manual of SADP client software for detailed information.
2. Change the IP address and subnet mask to the same subnet as that of your computer.
3. Enter the IP address of network camera in the address field of the web browser to
view the live video.
Note:
• The default IP address is 192.168.2.95 and the port number is 8000. The default user
name is admin, and password is 12345.
•For accessing the network camera from different subnets, please set the gateway
for the network camera after you logged in. For detailed information, please refer to
Section 6.3.1 Configuring TCP/IP Settings.

2.2 SETTING THE NETWORK CAMERA OVER THE WAN
PURPOSE
This section explains how to connect the network camera to the WAN with a static IP
or a dynamic IP.
2.2.1 STATIC IP CONNECTION
BEFORE YOU START
Please apply a static IP from an ISP (Internet Service Provider). With the static IP address,
you can connect the network camera via a router or connect it to the WAN directly.
• Connecting the network camera via a router
STEPS
1. Connect the network camera to the router.
2. Assign a LAN IP address, the subnet mask and the gateway. Refer to Section 2.1.2
Detecting and Changing the IP Address for detailed IP address configuration of the
camera.
3. Save the static IP in the router.
4. Set port mapping, e.g., 80, 8000, 8200 and 554 ports. The steps for port mapping vary
depending on different routers. Please call the router manufacturer for assistance with
port mapping.
Refer to Appendix 2 for detailed information about port mapping.
5. Visit the network camera through a web browser or the client software over the
internet.
Figure 2.2.1 - Accessing the Camera through Router with Static IP
•Connecting the network camera with static IP directly
You can also save the static IP in the camera and directly connect it to the internet
without using a router. Refer to Section 2.1.2 Detecting and Changing the IP Address
for detailed IP address configuration of the camera.

2.2.2 DINAMIC IP CONNECTION
BEFORE YOU START
Please apply a dynamic IP from an ISP. With the dynamic IP address, you can connect
the network camera to a modem or a router.
• Connecting the network camera via a router
STEPS
1. Connect the network camera to the router.
2. In the camera, assign a LAN IP address, the subnet mask and the gateway. Refer to
Section 2.1.2 Detecting and Changing the IP Address for detailed LAN configuration.
3. In the router, set the PPPoE user name, password and confirm the password.
4. Set port mapping. E.g. 80, 8000, 8200 and 554 ports. The steps for port mapping vary
depending on different routers. Please call the router manufacturer for assistance with
port mapping.
Note:
Refer to Appendix 2 for detailed information about port mapping.
5. Configure the DDNS settings in the setting interface of the router.
6. Visit the camera via the applied domain name.
• Connecting the network camera via a modem
PURPOSE
This camera supports the PPPoE auto dial-up function. The camera gets a public IP address
by ADSL dial-up after the camera is connected to a modem. You need to configure the
PPPoE parameters of the network camera. Refer to Section 5.3.3 Configuring PPPoE
Settings for detailed configuration.
Figure 2.2.3 Accessing the Camera with Dynamic IP
The obtained IP address is dynamically assigned via PPPoE, so the IP address always
changes after rebooting the camera. To solve the inconvenience of the dynamic IP, you
need to get a domain name from the DDNS provider (E.g. DynDns.com). Please follow
below steps for normal domain name resolution and private domain name resolution
to solve the problem.
12
Network Camera
User Manual
• Normal Domain Name Resolution

4.2 EASY Wi-Fi CONNECTION WITH WPS FUNCTION
PURPOSE
The setting of the wireless network connection is never easy. To avoid the complex
setting of the wireless connection you can enable the WPS function.
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) refers to the easy configuration of the encrypted connection
between the device and the wireless router. The WPS makes it easy to add new devices
to an existing network without entering long passphrases. There are two modes of the
WPS connection, the PBC mode and the PIN mode.
Note:
If you enable the WPS function, you do not need to configure the parameters such as
the encryption type and you don’t need to know the key of the wireless connection.
STEPS
Figure 4.2.1 - Wi-Fi Settings - WPS
PBC Mode:
PBC refers to the Push-Button-Configuration, in which the user simply has to push a
button, either an actual or virtual one (as the
button on the configuration
interface of the IE browser), on both the Access Point (and a registrar of the network)
and the new wireless client device.
1.Check the checkbox of
to enable WPS.
2.Choose the connection mode as PBC.
Note:
Support of this mode is mandatory for both the Access Points and the connecting
devices.
3. Check on the Wi-Fi router to see if there is a WPS button. If yes push the button
and you can see the indicator near the button start flashing, which means the WPS
function of the router is enabled. For detailed operation, please see the user guide of
the router.
4. Push the WPS button to enable the function on the camera. If there is not a WPS
button on the camera, you can also click the virtual button to enable the PBC function
on the web interface.
5.Click “Connect” button.
20
Network Camera
User Manual
When the PBC mode is both enabled in the router and the camera, the camera and the
wireless network is connected automatically.
PIN Mode:
The PIN mode requires a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to be read from either
a sticker or the display on the new wireless device. This PIN must then be entered to
connect the network, usually the Access Point of the network.
STEPS
1. Choose a wireless connection on the list and the SSID is shown.
Figure 4.2.2 - Wi-Fi Settings – WPS PIN Mode
2. Choose Use route PIN code.
If the PIN code is generated from the router side, you should enter the PIN code you get
from the router side in the Router PIN code field.
3. Click “Connect”.
Or you can generate the PIN code on the camera side. And the expired time for the PIN
code is 120 seconds.
