Operating Instructions
Main Features
This manual is for both BB-HCM381A (AC Adaptor Type) and BB-HCE481A
(PoE Type). Available features and operations are different in part depending
on the model. Read this manual carefully and use the Network Camera
properly.
IPv6*1 Network Camera
Your Panasonic Network Camera supports IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6). IPv6
was created to address the additional IP addresses that will be needed as the
Internet continues to expand. Since the camera also supports the currently used
IPv4, its "dual stack" design will seamlessly operate while IPv6 is phased in. For
more information regarding IPv6, see page 15, or visit http://www.ipv6.org/.
PoE (Power over Ethernet) Supported*2 (For Only BB-HCE481A [PoE Type])
The camera supports PoE (Power over Ethernet), and be powered up by using an
Ethernet cable without the AC adaptor.
Audio 2-way Communication*3 (Walkie-talkie Type)
2-way audio communication is now possible between your Network Camera and
PC. By connecting a user-supplied microphone and speaker*4 to both the camera
and to the PC, you will be able to speak to and hear anyone within range of the
camera.
For example, the camera can be used in the following various locations:
•
In the baby's room, to hear if the baby is crying.
•
At the front door, to see and hear who is at the door.
•
In the children's play room, to see and hear if they are safe.
Note
•
PLEASE NOTE that under certain circumstances, audio/video recording may
be PROHIBITED by law. This device should be used only in compliance with all
applicable federal, state and local statutes.
*1
To connect using IPv6, subscribe to your ISP's "IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack" or "IPv6 over IPv4
Tunneling" service. The camera does not function on IPv6-only networks.
*2
BB-HCE481A works with a PoE hub only. No port for AC adaptor.
*3
The audio feature does not work well on cell phones. The Talk button and Listen button cannot
be used simultaneously. Depending on the network environment and traffic conditions, the
audio may be delayed or may break up.
*4
The speaker connected to the camera requires a built-in amplifier.

Operating Instructions
Motion Detection
The camera has a Motion Detection feature that detects movement, such as
people, based on the preset threshold and sensitivity of the camera.
You can buffer the camera images, transfer images to an FTP server or send Emails using the Motion Detection function as a trigger.
Better Image Quality
The CCD sensor and the color night view mode provides better image quality and
low light performance.
•
The CCD sensor gives you clear image.
•
You can monitor live video (Motion JPEG) that refreshes its image 30 frames
per second.
•
Color night view mode allows you to monitor the camera in low illuminance.
Remote Pan/Tilt/Zoom/Focus
The following features allow you to operate Network Camera from web browser on
your PC. High speed Pan/Tilt operation can move the lens horizontally from -175°
to +175° and vertically from -120° to 0° in mounting on the table and from 0° to +90°
in mounting on the ceiling. This movable lens allows you to view a wide range of
perspective from a distant place. Network Camera has a 42x magnifying capacity:
a 21x optical zoom and a 2x digital zoom. Automatic and Manual Focusing features
provide you with detailed and distinct images. Additionally, the following control
features are available to easily and quickly monitor the camera.
Click to Center ........ When you click a certain point on the camera image, the
camera moves to display that point in the center of the
image.
Preset Position ........ You can register 20 preset positions. When you select a
preset position, the camera moves to that position.
Output Control ........ You can control external devices (Open or Short to
GND) (E.g., turning a light on or ringing a buzzer).
Video Output
Network Camera has an analog composite output terminal. You can view images
from Network Camera on TV and record them on videotapes.
SD Memory Card*1 Recording
The camera has an SD memory card slot. You can record camera images to the
SD memory card. If you enable alarm buffer/transfer, you can record the image at
the timing of signal detection of door sensor or light. If you enable 1-minute interval
timer buffer/transfer to 1 GB SD memory card, you can record about 58,000
images (320 x 240 resolution and standard quality) for about 41 days.
*1
The camera supports 2 GB, 1 GB, 512 MB, 256 MB, 128 MB or 64 MB Panasonic SD memory
card (customer-provided).

Operating Instructions
Enhanced Multi-Camera Page
The Multi-Camera page displays the moving images from up to 4 cameras, while
supporting audio 2-way communication with each. This camera allows you to
switch between 3 sets of 4 cameras. Additionally, static images from a maximum
of 12 cameras can be displayed on a single page.
DynamicDNS Service Support
DynamicDNS service allows you to access the camera over the Internet with a
domain name of your choice (e.g. bob.viewnetcam.com) instead of a global IP
address.
Multi-Language Display
The Top page, Single Camera and Multi-Camera page can be displayed in English,
French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Korean or
Japanese. The Setup, Maintenance and Support pages are displayed only in

Operating Instructions
1.4.1
To Access the Camera in IPv6
You need to prepare the following to access the camera in IPv6.
•
PC Requirements
Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 1 or later
Web Browser: Internet Explorer 6.0 or later
•
An IPv6 Router
•
An IPv6 Connection Service
To connect in IPv6, subscribe to the ISP's "IPv4/IPv6 Dual-Stack" or "IPv6 over
IPv4 Tunneling" service. The camera does not function on IPv6-only networks.
IPv6 Domain Name Service
In Windows XP, you cannot access the camera by entering its IP address in the
web browser. Enter the IPv6 URL that was registered using the domain name
service. We recommend the Viewnetcam.com service (see page 70) as a domain
name service. Ask your ISP about other IPv6 domain name services.
What is IPv6?
•
IPv6 is short for "Internet Protocol Version 6".
•
IPv6 was created to provide the additional IP addresses that will be needed as
the Internet continues to expand.
•
IPv6 is expected to gradually replace IPv4, with the 2 coexisting for a number
of years during a transition period.
•
Though most ISPs (Internet Service Providers) do not yet support IPv6, many
local networks already use it. When your ISP supports IPv6, your Panasonic
Network Camera will be ready!
•
For more information, visit http://www.ipv6.org/.
Setting up the IPv6 Router, your PC, and the Camera
Setting up the IPv6 Router
Set up the router as you subscribe to the IPv6 service. If access from the WAN side
is disabled on the router, enable the TCP packets from the WAN side using packet
filtering. See the Panasonic Network Camera support website at http://
panasonic.co.jp/pcc/products/en/netwkcam/ for information about the
recommended routers.

Connecting the Camera to Your IPv4 Network
The Network page offers three options to configure the camera in IPv4.
•
[Automatic Setup] automatically assigns an unused IP address to the camera,
and uses UPnP™ (Universal Plug and Play) to configure your router.
•
[Static] allows the user to use a specific IP address.
•
[DHCP] is offered for ISPs that require this option.
1. Click [Network (IPv4)] on the Setup page.
2. Click a connection mode.
Most common mode of setup.
Uses a static IP address.
Uses ISP DHCP server function.
•
See below for details of each connection mode.
3. Enter each parameter in the relevant data field.
Automatic Setup
The camera automatically obtains the network settings (subnet mask, default
gateway and DNS server address) using the router's or ISP's DHCP feature.
The camera also automatically searches for an unused IP address on your
network. If you select [Yes] for Allow Access from the Internet, the camera
automatically enables port forwarding using UPnP™. In this case, the camera
automatically searches for an unused port number on your network in order
of 80 and from 50000 to 50050.

DynamicDNS Service (IPv4/IPv6)
DynamicDNS allows you to choose an easy-to-remember address (such as
"bob.viewnetcam.com") that can be used to view images from your camera over
the Internet. This service is compatible with both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Some
DynamicDNS service is not compatible with IPv6 address.
What are the advantages of DynamicDNS service?
In order to view camera images over the Internet, you need to know your camera's
global IP address. However, many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) assign their
customers a "dynamic" IP address that changes monthly, weekly, or each time they
log on. Unless you have been assigned a static IP address (an IP address that
does not change periodically) by your ISP, you may find it difficult to access your
camera over the Internet. The Viewnetcam.com service allows you to access your

5. Camera connection established
1. Your ISP assigns a global IP address to your Internet access account that
changes periodically. This is the address needed to access the camera over
the Internet.
2. When your ISP-assigned global IP address changes, your camera
automatically notifies the DynamicDNS service server of the new address in
the DynamicDNS. The camera notifies the DynamicDNS service server of the
new address in DynamicDNS in the following cases.
• When starting the camera
• When an update interval time has been set.
• When clicking the [Save] button
3. The DynamicDNS server contacts the Domain Name System (DNS) server
and registers your new global IP address to your chosen DynamicDNS
address (such as "bob.viewnetcam.com").
75
Operating Instructions
4. When you enter your DynamicDNS address in your web browser while away
from home or the office, the DNS server looks up the global IP address
assigned to your DynamicDNS address.
5. The DNS server finds your current global IP address and allows you to
connect to your camera.
Note

•
•
76
Ask your ISP about what type of IP address you are using.
Some ISPs assign you a local IP address. In this case, the DynamicDNS
service cannot be used.
If the camera is using a port number other than 80, the port number must
be specified at the end of the DynamicDNS URL. For example:
Using port 80: http://(Cameraname).viewnetcam.com
Using any other port: http://(Cameraname).viewnetcam.com:Port

registered users to access the camera.
Note
•
If you access the camera for the first time, the window for setting the
administrator's user name and password is displayed. Make a note of the user
name and password so that you will not forget them.
•
The user name and password should be secured at your own responsibility.
Pay attention to the following points.
– Set a user name and password with as many characters as possible.
– Change the password regularly.
•
Setting [Permit access from guest users] (permitting access without a User
Name or Password) or [Permit access from guest users (mobile only)]
(permitting access without a User Name or Password) at General
Authentication risks the images being viewed by third parties. Control the
contents of the images accordingly.
IMPORTANT
•

It is important to limit access to the camera by use of a unique User Name and
a secret Password. Because the camera is accessed through the Internet it is
possible that the camera could be accessed by unknown individuals, including
those who are commonly known as "hackers," to whom you do not want to allow
access. The use of a unique User Name and a Password known only to you will
help insure that only authorized individuals are given access to the camera. You
have the option of proceeding without a User Name and Password, but it is
strongly recommended that you utilize these protections.

No responsibility will be taken by our company with respect to
consequences resulting from the use of the Motion Detection feature. The
Motion Detection feature is not suitable and not recommended for uses
that require a high reliability constantly such as surveillance, etc.
Operating Instructions
What is “threshold”?
The threshold is the minimum value for the camera to detect motions on the
image during the motion detection buffering. Setting the threshold lower allows
subtler changes to be detected. Setting the threshold higher allows only bigger
changes that might occupy half the image to be detected.
What is “sensitivity”?
The sensitivity is the level of brightness detected as motion by the camera. A
high sensitivity setting enables the camera to detect slight brightness changes.
Lower the sensitivity to make the camera detect only big brightness changes.
The Threshold is
displayed.
Note
•
Note
•
Only motion above the
Threshold is detected.
Lowering the threshold and increasing sensitivity enables the camera to
detect slight movements easily.
Motion Detection is activated by changes in the outline of objects and
brightness changes. This feature is designed to decrease false detections
due to overall brightness changes caused by sunlight. But in some cases,
the camera may falsely detect rapid brightness changes by artificial light
such as fluorescent light. In other cases, the motion detection function on
the Network Camera Recorder may detect objects and brightness
changes. The way to detect motion differs between the camera and the
Network Camera Recorder (customer-provided).
135
Operating Instructions
•
136
Additionally, if the object's color is similar to the color of the background,
motion can be hard to detect.
The detection level depends on the object, resolution, or image quality.
Confirm the condition on the Preview window following the procedure
above.

Motion Phone*1
The values shown are the file sizes when transferring to a cell phone.
The maximum number of Buffer/Transfer images
If the timer, alarm or motion detection trigger is enabled, the internal memory
capacity is divided into the number of the triggers [maximum 5 triggers].
E.g.
At 320 x 240 pixels resolution and standard quality, the camera can buffer about
125 frames. If each timer, alarm and motion detection trigger is enabled, the
internal memory is divided into 3 sections. In this case, each trigger can buffer
about 40 frames.
