1. PRODUCT FEATURES
1.1 Product Instructions
The VideoEdge IP Box Camera ADCIPEB is a user-friendly device which combines cutting-edge
sophistication with practical reliability and convenience, high performance with smooth remote
communication. Just plug in the network cable and you’ll get live streaming video and audio
anytime, any place. You’ll have security you can rely on! The especially high resolution has 520 TV
lines, a built-in web server and a Network interface to connect you with the Internet securely and
fast.
Other special features include the masking of personal private images with flexible mask-area
positioning and size, the self-downloading automatic video codec and other components, and the
whole unit is very easy to set up. You can access the network to get smooth images through the
real-time and synchronized audio / visual stream provided by the device, because it supports two
compression modes, the MJPEG and the MPEG4 -- you can change from one to the other as you
wish. The MPEG4 file format is a very small size file, so it can save more images over a longer time
and can be set extremely fast. The device also has a built-in website server providing many Internet
functions and protocols, including the MDIX protocol which recognizes both the normal and the
crossover cables, either of which can connect up with an IP camera.
We hope this device makes it easier for you to get your IP address information. This unit supports
the USB interface which helps you to very easily get an IP address to open the IE browser: just type
in your IP address to the browser and you can access your IP camera.
The device can hopefully provide the advanced motion detection function to improve your network
surveillance with both the powerful and enhanced multi-zone and multi-sensitivity modes of
detection. We believe this day & night IP camera is the right answer to all your network surveillance
problems. Try it and you'll see.
Note: Our camera already has a built-in refocus for its Day and Night function. So users
don't need to have an IR lens in this camera, they can just use a normal lens. If an IR
lens is used, the focus will become blurred.

3.5 IP camera SD card Troubleshooting
1. Check if the SD card position is correct or not. Please refer to the manual for the related
information.
2. Correctly insert the SD card after powering the IP camera on. The "SD" icon displays in the
upper-right corner of the monitor screen. If not, it means the device detection has failed. Please
contact your technical support and ignore the following steps.
3. If a check mark appears, please check the following:
a. Is it really an SD "Memory" Card?
b. Is this SD card formatted in the FAT16 format?
c. Connect the SD card with a PC and test to see whether the PC can read the data or not.
d. Does this SD card still have the capacity for storing data?
e. Is the SD card set to write?
If there is no check mark beside the "SD" icon, please go on to the next step.
If all the answers are "yes" but the check mark still persists, please contact your technical
support and ignore the following steps.
4. Ensure the "SD CARD ENABLE" function is activated in the ALARM and SCHEDULE pages if
there is no check mark appears beside the "SD" icon on the screen.
5. Read the data on the web page of "sdget.htm" after recording. If the data cannot be read through
the network, please read it instead in a PC, check the data stored in the "LANCAM" directory
and contact your technical support regardless of whether there is data or not.
WARNING:
1. Performing this troubleshooting process may need a monitor, a PC, a card reader and
some cables.
2. If the SD card is removed while storing or accessing data, the data will be lost.
3. If there is a check mark beside the "SD" icon, it means the SD card has been inserted into
the IP camera but cannot perform its writing function. Possible reasons are:
a. It is not an SD memory card.
b. The SD card is unformatted or formatted in a non-FAT16 or non-FAT12 format.
c. The file system is damaged.
d. The capacity of the SD card is full.

4.2 Configure Your IP Camera Network Settings
Upon connecting with the network hardware, you need to activate the network function and
configure the proper network settings of the IP camera.
4.2.1 Enable DHCP Function
This function can only work if the LAN, which the unit is connected to, has a DHCP server. If the
DHCP server is working, please move the dip switch points up to 3 on the flank panel; now the IP
camera will obtain an IP address automatically from the DHCP server. In this instance, please
skip section 4.2.2 (Set IP address) and follow section 4.3 (TCP/IP Communication Software).
4.2.2 Set IP Address
You need to set an IP address for the unit if the LAN unit isn’t connected to a DHCP server.
Otherwise, please follow the instructions given below:
Set the IP, MASK and GATEWAY. The following is a sample setting.
IP:
192.168.1.X
MASK:
255.255.255.0
GATEWAY:
0.0.0.0
NOTE: When only one unit of the IP camera is connected to a computer or LAN, you can
freely assign an IP address for the IP camera. For example, there is a range of IP
camera IP addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.255. You can pick one for use
from the range of the IP. It’s not necessary to set MASK and GATEWAY; leave the
settings as default.
When an IP camera is connected to a WAN, you must acquire a unique,
permanent IP address and correctly configure the MASK and GATEWAY settings
according to your network architecture. If you have any questions regarding
those settings, please consult a qualified MIS professional or your ISP.
21
NOTE: When connecting to a network, each connected IP camera must be assigned a
unique IP, which must be in the same class type as your network address. IP
addresses are written as four sets of numbers separated by periods; for example,
192.168.1.1 Therefore, if the connected network is identified as Class C, for
example, the first three sets of numbers of the IP camera IP address must be the
same as the network address. If the connected network is identified as Class B,
the first two sets of numbers of the IP camera IP address must be the same as the
network address. If you have any questions regarding these settings, please
consult a qualified MIS professional or your ISP.

APPENDIX 2. –IP camera UPnP How To
®
The most troublesome issue when you setup a LANCam is that you have no idea what the IP
®
address of this device is. Now LANCam supports the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocol
®
which makes it easier for you to examine it; however, Microsoft Windows XP doesn’t start this
service by default. Therefore, the following procedures will help you to turn it on and discover
®
your LANCam step by step as shown in Figure1 below.
Figure 1 UPnP Setup Flow Chart
1. Check the IP class of your PC
®
In most cases Microsoft Windows XP will assign an IP address, 169.254.*.*, automatically with
a subnet mask, 255.255.0.0, if the DHCP server is absent, while the default IP address of a
®
LANCam is 192.168.1.168 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. There won’t be any
communication due to different IP class domains, and you have to modify the relative settings or
the UPnP protocol won’t work; however, checking your own IP address is necessary. Here are
the procedures to check and modify them.
Step 1: From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. See Figure 2.
93
Figure 2
Step 2: When Control Panel appears, double-click the Network Connections icon. The
Network Connections dialog box appears. See Figure 3.
Figure 3
Step 3: Click the Protocols tab in the Network Connections dialog box. See Figure 4.
Figure 4
Step 4: When the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box shows up, choose Internet
Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. See Figure 5.
94
Figure 5
Step 5: In the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, choose Use the following IP
Address to indicate that you do not wish to use DHCP, and assign IP Address
192.168.1.200 with Subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
Click OK when you finish it. See Figure 6.
Figure 6
Step 6: Choose Close to finish the modification. See Figure 7.
Figure7
95
2. Install UPnP Packets
®
As described before, Microsoft Windows XP doesn’t start the UPnP service by default; however,
we have to install some packets before we initialize it. The following steps will help you to install
them.
Step1: From the Start menu, point to Set Program Access and Default, and then click it. See
Figure 8
Figure 8
Step 2: When the Add or Remove Programs dialog box appears, click the Add/Remove
Windows Components button. See Figure 9.
Figure 9
Step 3: Check the Network Services in the Windows Component Wizard dialog box, and
then click Details…. See Figure10.
96
Figure 10
Step 4: Check UPnP User Interface, and choose OK. See Figure 11.
Figure 11
Step 5: When the original Network Component Wizard dialog box returns, click Next. See
Figure12.
Figure 12
97
Step 6: After about one minute the UPnP installation will be done, and choose Finish to close it.
See Figure13.
Figure 13
3. Turn on Services
After installation, you must turn on the relative services to start the UPnP protocol. The following
procedures demonstrate this.
Step 1: From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. See Figure14.
Figure 14
Step 2: When Control Panel appears, double-click the Administrative Tools icon. The
Administrative Tools dialog box appears. See Figure15.
98
Figure15
Step 3: Click on the Services icon in the Administrative Tools dialog box. See Figure16.
Figure16
Step 4: When the Services dialog box shows up, double click the SSDP Discovery Service
icon. See Figure17.
99
Figure17
Step 5: Choose Automatic in the Startup type, and click OK to start it. See Figure18.
Figure18
Step 6: When the Services dialog box appears again, double click the Universal Plug and Play
Device Host icon. See Figure19.
100
Figure19
Step 7: Choose Automatic in the Startup type, press the Start button, and click OK to start it.
See Figure20.
Figure20
Step 8: Restart your system.

4. Scan LANCams through My Network Place
After your installation and starting services, the UPnP protocol will take effect. You can scan all
®
LANCams in My Network Place like Figure21 and Figure22 below.
Figure21
Figure22
Just double click the UPnP MPEG4 IP camera the video live stream will pop up automatically
without assigning any IP address in Microsoft Internet Explorer.
102
APPENDIX 3. –The ARP function
Setting the IP Address
The Ethernet interface on the LANCam has a default IP address (192.168.1.168) that most likely
needs to be changed to make it work on your local network. You need to acquire a unique IP
address (ask your network administrator). For the initial setting of the IP address the LANCam
needs to be connected to the same network segment as your client, and the IP address can then be
configured by using a combination of ARP and ping command.
Use any of the following ways to set the IP address within thirty seconds after booting the LANCam
(re-cycle the power). Setting IP using the method below can only be done on the Ethernet interface.
ARP and ping from Windows or MS-DOS:
The user can open the PC's MS-DOS windows from the WINDOWS 98 operating system, or open
the PC's Command Prompt windows from either the WINDOWS 2000 or the WINDOWS XP
operating system.
1.
Start a DOS prompt window
2.
Type the following in 30 seconds after the booting:
arp -s <IP address> <Ethernet address>
[or arp -s <IP address> < MAC address>]
ping <IP address>
Example:
arp -s 192.168.1.100 00-0C-0C-00-00-01
ping 192.168.1.100
The IP address now is: 192.168.1.100.
103
ARP and ping from UNIX or GNU/Linux:
1.
Start a shell
2.
Type the following as superuser (root):
arp -s <IP address> <Ethernet address>
[or arp -s <IP address> < MAC address>]
ping <IP address>
Example:
arp -s 192.168.1.100 00-0C-0C-00-00-01
ping 192.168.1.100
The device responds to the ping in the examples above if the new address was configured. Note,
this method will set the IP address permanently.
Note: The default account and password after the reset are admin and 9999.
104
APPENDIX 4. –Register as a DDNS member
