Precautions
1. Do not install the camera near electric or magnetic fields.
Install the camera away from TV/radio transmitters, magnets, electric motors, transformers and
audio speakers since the electromagnetic fields generated from these devices may distort the video
image or otherwise interfere with camera operation.
2. Never disassemble the camera beyond the recommendations in this manual nor introduce
materials other than those recommended herein.
Improper disassembly or introduction of corrosive materials may result in equipment failure or other
damage.
3. Try to avoid facing the camera toward the sun.
In some circumstances, direct sunlight may cause permanent damage to the sensor and/or internal
circuits, as well as creating unbalanced illumination beyond the capability of the camera to
compensate.
4. Keep the power cord away from water and other liquids and never touch the power cord with wet
hands.
Touching a wet power cord with your hands or touching the power cord with wet hands may result in
electric shock.
5. Never install the camera in areas exposed to oil, gas or solvents.
Oil, gas or solvents may result in equipment failure, electric shock or, in extreme cases, fire.
6. Cleaning
For cameras with interchangeable lenses, do not touch the surface of the sensor directly with the
hands. Use lens tissue or a cotton tipped applicator and ethanol to clean the sensor and the camera
lens. Use a damp soft cloth to remove any dirt from the camera body. Please do not use complex
solvents, corrosive or abrasive agents for cleaning of any part of the camera.
7. Do not operate the camera beyond the specified temperature, humidity or power source ratings.
Use the camera at temperatures within -10°C ~ 50°C / 14°F ~ 122°F , and humidity between 20% and
80%; this device is not rated as submersible. The input power source is 12VDC / PoE. Be sure to
connect the proper + / - polarity and voltage, as incorrect polarity or too high a voltage will likely
cause the camera to fail, and such damage is not covered by the warranty. The use of properly fused
or Class 3 power limited type supplies is highly recommended.
8. Mounting
Use care in selecting a solid mounting surface which will support the weight of the camera plus any
wind, snow, ice or other loading, and securely attach the camera to the mounting surface using
screws and anchors which will properly support the camera. If necessary (e.g. when mounting to
drop ceilings) use a safety wire to provide additional support for the camera.

【IP Settings】Enter the IPv4 / IPv6 details in this area, which applies to your system. Click Apply to
apply the changes or Cancel to cancel the changes and return to the previous settings.
 IPv4:
IP Mode: Refer to the network administrator for these settings of the server. Default: DHCP.
 DHCP: This setting lets the system use an automatically assigned (dynamic) IP address. This
address can change under certain circumstances. For instance, when the camera’s network
switch/hub has to be rebooted. Do not assign to the DHCP server the same IP addresses used
for the other network cameras and PCs with unique IP addresses.
 Static IP: The user can manually set the Static IP address. This type of address is stable and
cannot change, but the user has to make sure there are no address conflicts with other
network-connected devices.
 PPPoE: This is a DSL-connection application. The ISP will ask the user to input a username and
password. Contact your ISP for these details.
IP address: When DHCP is not used, the user needs to manually enter the IP address of the
camera. Do not enter an IP address that is already used for your computer or other network
cameras.
Subnet Mask: This field is used to set the subnet mask for your network, so that the IP camera
will be recognized within the network. Example: 255.255.255.0. When DHCP is selected, the
DHCP server will assign this value automatically.
Gateway: This field is used to set the gateway for your network so that the IP camera will be
recognized within the network. When DHCP is selected, the DHCP server will assign this value
automatically.

234.x.x.x - 238.x.x.x. Click here for more details.
Port: Change the port number if necessary. The port number has set to 50000 by default.
Time to Live: Input a Time-To-Live (TTL) value. The TTL value specifies the number of routers (hops)
that multicast traffic is permitted to pass through before expiring on the network.
【DDNS Settings】This function can only be set up in the Advanced tab. DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name
System) is a service used to map a domain name to the dynamic IP address of a network device. You
can set up the DDNS service for remote access to the IP camera. DDNS assigns a domain name (URL)
to the IP camera, so that the user does not need to go through the trouble of checking if the IP
address assigned by DHCP Server has changed. Once the IP is changed, the IP camera will
automatically update the information to the DDNS to ensure it is always available for remote access.
Before enabling the following DDNS function, user should have applied for a host name from the
DDS service provider’s website. We support these four DDNS server providers:
www.everfocusddns.com, www.sitelutions.com, www.dyndns.com, and www.no-ip.com
