Indoor Installation Procedures
If the camera will be installed indoors and there is no need to waterproof the cable connections,
follow the procedures below.
Step 1: Prepare for Installation
1. Attach the bracket to the camera.
2. Determine how the cables will be routed:


How to Access the Camera Live View
Connect the Equipment
To be able to connect to the camera firmware from your PC, both the camera and the PC have to
be connected to each other via Ethernet cable. At the same time, the camera has to have its own
power supply. In case of PoE cameras, you can use a PoE Injector or a PoE Switch between the
camera and the PC. The cameras that have the DC power connectors may be powered on by
using a power adapter.
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.
24

Installation Guide
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 model that we had just connected to the
network.
By double-clicking the mouse button on the camera model it is possible 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.
25
www.acti.com
Installation Guide
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.
The IP Utility can be downloaded for free from http://www.acti.com/IP_Utility
With just one click, you can launch the IP Utility and there will be an instant report as follows:
You can quickly notice 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.
26
www.acti.com
Installation Guide
Use the default IP address of a camera:
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:

27
www.acti.com
Installation Guide
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.

* When using non-Internet Explorer browsers, free third-party software plug-ins must be installed
to the PC first to be able to get the live video feed from the camera. Check the firmware version of
the camera to determine which plug-in is necessary:
Firmware Version
Required Plug-In
A1D-500-V6.04.xx-AC or older
Basic VLC Media Player (http://www.videolan.org)
A1D-500-V6.05.xx-AC or newer
QuickTime (http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/)
The camera firmware version can be found on the FW Version column of the IP utility or access
the Setup page of the Web Configurator (see page 31).
Disclaimer Notice: The camera manufacturer does not guarantee the compatibility of its cameras
with VLC player or QuickTime – since these are third party softwares. The third parties have the
right to modify their utility any time which might affect the compatibility. In such cases, please use
Internet Explorer browser instead.
When using Internet Explorer browser, the ActiveX control for video stream management will 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.

Installation Guide
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.
Before logging in, you need to know the factory default Account and Password of the camera.
