Using the Bundled Conduit Gland
The camera and the pre-installed network cable are resistant to salt water, weak acid, alcohol,
oil, grease and other common solvents. However, in areas with fierce weather conditions and
those that can easily be flooded, ensure that the exposed length of cable is also protected.
It is recommended to use a flexible conduit with 1/2” diameter and the conduit gland (included
in the package) to protect the camera cabling. In this case, the pre-installed network cable with
“pigtail” (female connector) must be replaced with a standard Ethernet cable
NOTE: The flexible conduit and Ethernet cable are not included in the package and must be
sold separately. When purchasing, make sure the flex conduit size is 1/2" to match the bundled
conduit gland.

Hardware Manual
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 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
other to be able to access it by 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, we successfully found the camera that we had just connected to the
network.
By double-clicking with the left mouse on the camera model, it is possible to automatically
28
www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
launch the default browser of the PC with the IP address of the target camera filled in the
address bar of the browser already.
If you work with our cameras regularly, then there is even a better way to discover the
cameras in the network – by using IP Utility. The IP Utility is a light software tool that can not
only discover the cameras, but also list lots of valuable information, such as IP and MAC
addresses, serial numbers, firmware versions, etc, and allows quick configuration of multiple
devices at the same time.
Search and downloand IP Utility for free from http://www.acti.com/DownloadCenter.
With just one click, you can launch the IP Utility and there will be an instant report as follows:
You can quickly see the camera model in the list. Click on the IP address to automatically
launch the default browser of the PC with the IP address of the target camera filled in the
address bar of the browser already.
29
www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
Using the Default Camera IP Address
If there is no DHCP server in the given network, the user may have to assign the IP addresses
to both PC and camera manually to make sure they are in the same network segment.
When the camera is plugged into 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:
1
3
2
4
30
www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
Manually adjust the IP addresses of multiple cameras:
If there are more than 1 camera to be used in the same local area network and there is no
DHCP server to assign unique IP addresses to each of them, all of the cameras would then
have the initial IP address of 192.168.0.100, which is not a proper situation for network
devices – all the IP addresses have to be different from each other. The easiest way to assign
cameras the IP addresses is by using IP Utility:
With the procedure shown above, all the cameras will have unique IP addresses, starting from
192.168.0.101. In case there are 20 cameras selected, the last one of the cameras would have
the IP 192.168.0.120.
Later, by pressing the “Refresh” button of the IP Utility, you will be able to see the list of
cameras with their new IP addresses.
Please note that it is also possible to change the IP addresses manually by using the Web
browser. In such case, please plug in only one camera at a time, and change its IP address by
using the Web browser before plugging in the next one. This way, the Web browser will not be
confused about two devices having the same IP address at the same time.

Access the Camera
Now that the camera and the PC are both having their unique IP addresses and are under the
same network segment, it is possible to use the Web browser of the PC to access the camera.
You can use any of the browsers to access the camera, however, the full functionality is
provided only for Microsoft Internet Explorer.

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 called Web Configurator 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.
