Mount the Camera
Follow the steps to mount the camera with the Wall Mount.
STEP 1
Make a cable entry hole on the wall to recess the cables. Run the Ethernet cable
through the pendant mount. If there are other cables, such as power cable, alarm
I/O cable or audio I/O cable, also insert them through the pendant mount.
NOTE: Please block the cable entry hole with the supplied sponge to avoid
insects entering the pendant mount. The sponge can be placed in two ways as
shown in the illustrations below.

Cable Connections
This section describes the procedures in preparing and connecting the bundled power adapter,
optional Digital Input and Digital Output (DI/DO), such as alarms, sensors, etc., and Audio Input
and Output devices. The use of these devices, however, is optional.
Note that the camera itself is waterproof, however take note that the cable connections are not.
Ensure to adapt proper waterproofing methods to protect the cable connections from water and
other environmental factors that may damage the cable or the camera.
Water might still enter the camera if it is being improperly installed. Please make sure the
warnings below are strictly followed when installing the camera.
NOTE: This camera must be installed by qualified personnel and the installation should
conform to all local codes.
Place all cables and the adaptor in dry and well-waterproofed environments, e.g. waterproof
boxes. The purpose is to prevent moisture accumulation inside the camera and moisture
penetration into cables.
While running cables, slightly bend the cables to a U-shaped curve to make a low point (as
demonstrated in the figures below). The purpose is to prevent water from entering the camera
along the cables from above.
17
www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
The cable entry hole of the outdoor mounting kit (indicated in
the figure) needs to be sealed with thread seal tape to avoid
water from entering the camera.
Power Connection
Users can use an Ethernet cable and connect it to the RJ-45 port of the camera and a UPoE 60W
switch. However, if using a non-UPOE connection, you can power up the camera using DC12V or
AC24V then connect the camera to the power outlet.
DC12V
The camera comes with a bundled DC12V power adapter and cord. Connect the power adapter
to 2-pin terminal block: white cable to the positive (+) pin and the black cable to the negative (-)
pin. Then, connect the power adapter with the power cord to a power source outlet.
When users connect DC12V power jack and the RJ-45 port at the same time, the power input
comes from the DC12V connector. If the DC12V power source fails, the camera will switch power
input seamlessly to the RJ-45 port until the DC12V power source is restored.

Ethernet Cable Connection
To connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 connector of the camera, and plug the
other end of the cable to the network switch or PC.
NOTE: In some cases, Ethernet crossover cable might be needed when connecting
the camera directly to the PC.
NOTE: Check the status of the link indicator and activity indicator LEDs. If the LEDs
are unlit, please check the LAN connection.
Green Link Light indicates good network connection.

Accessing the Camera
Configure the IP Addresses
In order to be able to communicate with the camera from your PC, both the camera and the PC
have to be within the same network segment. In most cases, it means that they both should have
very similar IP addresses, where only the last number of the IP address is different from each
other. There are 2 different approaches to IP Address management in Local Area Networks – by
DHCP Server or Manually.
Using DHCP server to assign IP addresses
If you have connected the computer and the camera into the network that has a DHCP server
running, then you do not need to configure the IP addresses at all – both the camera and the PC
would request a unique IP address from the DHCP server automatically. In such case, the
camera will immediately be ready for the access from the PC. The user, however, might not know
the IP address of the camera yet. It is necessary to know the IP address of the camera in order to
access it using a Web browser.
The quickest way to discover the cameras in the network is to use the simplest network
search, built in the Windows system – just by pressing the “Network” icon, all the cameras of the
local area network will be discovered by Windows, thanks to the UPnP function support of our
cameras.
In the example below, the camera model that has just been connected to the network is
successfully found.

Hardware Manual
Double-click the mouse on the camera model name, the default browser of the PC is
automatically launched and the IP address of the target camera is already filled in the address
bar of the browser.

www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
Use the default IP address of the camera
If there is no DHCP server in the given network, the user may have to manually assign the IP
addresses to both the PC and the camera to make sure they are in the same network segment.
When the camera is plugged into the network and it does not detect any DHCP services, it will
automatically assign itself a default IP:
192.168.0.100
Whereas the default port number would be 80. In order to access that camera, the IP address of
the PC has to be configured to match the network segment of the camera.
Manually adjust the IP address of the PC
In the following example, based on Windows 7, we will configure the IP address to 192.168.0.99
and set Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0 by using the steps below:

Hardware Manual
Access the Camera
Now that the camera and the PC both have their unique IP addresses and are under the same
network segment, you can use a web browser on the PC to access the camera.
You can use Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0 (recommended), Chrome, Firefox, Safari to
access the camera.
ActiveX control for video stream management may be downloaded from the camera directly – the
user just has to accept the use of such control when prompted so. No other third party utilities are
required to be installed in such case.
The following examples in this manual are based on Internet Explorer browser in order to
cover all functions of the camera.
Assuming that the camera’s IP address is 192.168.0.100, you can access it by opening the Web
browser and typing the following address into Web browser’s address bar:
http://192.168.0.100
Upon successful connection to the camera, the user interface would appear together with the
login page. The HTTP port number was not added behind the IP address since the default HTTP
port of the camera is 80, which can be omitted from the address for convenience.
Before logging in, you need to know the factory default Account and Password of the camera.
Account: Admin
Password: 123456
For further operations, please refer to the Firmware User’s Manual.
