Initial Setup of the PTZ IP Camera

After you install the PTZ IP camera, or after you perform a factory reset procedure, you must access the

PTZ IP camera and make initial configuration settings. These settings include administrator and root passwords, and whether the PTZ IP camera can be accessed through an HTTP connection in addition to the default HTTPS (HTTP secure) connection.

To make these configuration settings, you connect to the PTZ IP camera from any PC that is on the same network as the PTZ IP camera. The PC must meet these requirements:

Operating system—Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit), 8 (32-bit or 64-bit), 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)

Browser—See the

“Supported Browsers” section on page 1-5

In addition, you must know the IP address and default login credentials of the PTZ IP camera. By default, when the PTZ IP camera powers on, it attempts to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server in your network. If the camera cannot obtain an IP address through DCHP within 90 seconds, it uses a default

IP address of 192.168.0.100. The default login credentials (Username/Password) are admin/admin.

To connect to the IP camera for the first time and make initial configuration settings, perform the following steps. You can change these configuration settings in the future, if needed.

Before you Begin

The Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or later must be installed on the PC that you use to connect to the PTZ IP camera. You can download the .NET Framework from the Microsoft website.

Procedure

Step 1

Step 2

Start a supported browser, enter HTTPS:// ip_address in the address field, and press Enter .

Replace ip_address with the IP address that the PTZ IP camera obtained through DHCP or, if the camera was unable to obtain this IP address, enter 192.168.0.100

.

When configuring video streams, be aware of the following guidelines:

You cannot configure a secondary stream (channel 2) if you configure the resolution of the primary stream to 2560 x 1920, or 1920 x 1080 @ 20 FPS or higher.

You cannot configure the resolution for the primary stream to 2560 x 1920, or 1920 x 1080 @ 20

FPS or higher if a secondary stream is enabled.

The resolution of the primary stream must be higher than the resolution of the secondary stream.

You cannot configure a maximum frame rate of 30 for the primary stream if the secondary stream is enabled.

Multiple secondary frame rates are supported:

Table 4-1

shows the frame rate combinations of primary and secondary streams with a 4:3 aspect ratio for the 2830 camera

Table 4-2

shows the frame rate combinations of primary and secondary streams with a 4:3 aspect ratio for the 2835 camera.

Table 4-3 shows the frame rate combinations of primary and secondary streams with a 16:9

aspect ratio for the 6930 camera

Table 4-4 shows the frame rate combinations of primary and secondary streams with a 4:3

aspect ratio for the 6930 camera

Table 4-5 shows the frame rate combinations of primary and secondary streams with a 1.25

aspect ratio for the 6930 camera.

If a secondary frame rate that is not shown in a table is selected in Cisco Video Surveillance

Manager, the PTZ IP camera uses the closest available frame rate.

Day Night Filter Area

Switch Mode

Description

Choose the day or night mode for the PTZ IP camera:

Day —PTZ IP camera always remains in day mode.

Night —PTZ IP camera always remains in night mode.

Auto —IP camera automatically switches between day and night mode based on the lighting condition threshold that you specify.

When the IP camera is in Auto mode, it attempts to avoid frequent or unnecessary changes between day mode and night mode (such as can occur when an IP camera is set up on a street where car headlights could cause constant changes between these modes). When the IP camera detects that a switch from day to night mode might be necessary, it monitors the light level for 10 seconds. If the light level remains below or above the configured Day to Night Threshold for the entire 10 seconds, the IP camera switches modes. Otherwise, the IP camera remains in the current mode.

If the IP camera goes through 3 day/night mode transitions within a 60 second period, the camera stops detecting and implementing day/night changes for a period of 5 minutes from the point of the third transition.

During these 5 minutes, the IP camera remains in the current day or night mode.

Night External —PTZ IP camera switches to night mode based on an external input port. It switches to day mode when the external input port is not in the triggered status. Output port is optional and can be used to trigger devices connected externally. For more information about input and output ports, see the

“IO Ports Window” section on page 4-23

.

Night Schedule —PTZ IP camera switches to and from night mode based on the Start and End times.

– Start Time—Enter the time, in 24 hour format, when camera enters night mode.

Note

– End Time—Enter the time, in 24 hour format, when camera exists night mode.

If you configure a Night Schedule, make sure that the time on the

PTZ IP camera is set correctly.

Day to Night Threshold If the Switch Mode option is set to Auto, choose the value that specifies the relative light threshold at which the PTZ IP camera switches from day to night mode. A lower value designates that the PTZ IP camera switches from day to night mode in brighter conditions. A higher value designates that the

PTZ IP camera switches modes in darker conditions.

Note The Day to Night Threshold cannot be set to a value that is greater than Gain value that is set in the View Video > Camera Settings >

Exposure control area. In addition, the difference between the Day to

Night Threshold value and the Gain value cannot be greater than 6.

The default Day to Night Threshold value is 17.

When enabled, this feature causes the IP camera to generate alerts when any of the following events occur and persist for a designated period:

• The IP camera view is changed

The IP camera view is blocked

The IP camera view is substantially out of focus

Enter the minimum length of time that a tamper event persists before a tamper alert is generated. To prevent false alerts, the IP camera waits for this period after detecting a tamper event before it generates an alert. If the tamper event is resolved (the IP camera view is returned to its original setting, the IP camera view blockage is removed, or the IP camera is put back in focus), an alert is not generated.

Valid values are 10 to 600 seconds.

Check this option to cause the IP camera to clear a tamper alert automatically according to the value that is configured in the Auto Clear Tamper Duration field (see the next row in this table).

If the Enable Auto Clear Tamper Alert option is enabled, enter the number of minutes after the time that a tamper alert is generated at which the IP camera clears the alert.

For example, if you check the Enable Auto Clear Tamper Alert check box and set this Auto Clear Tamper Duration option to 90, the IP camera clears a tamper alert 90 minutes after the alert is generated.

Valid values are 5 to 1440 minutes (5 minutes to 24 hours).

Local Storage

The Local Storage window allows you to enable storing video on a local storage device in case of a network loss. You can download these video recordings from the Local Storage window.

When you use local storage, be aware of the following:

You can configure the IP camera to save all recordings ( continuous recording mode ) to the SD or

MicroSD card, or to save only recording that are made when the IP camera looses network connectivity ( network loss mode ).

The IP camera supports an SD or MicroSD card with a maximum storage capacity of 64 GB. For efficiency and performance of the local storage feature, Cisco recommends that you use an SD or

MicroSD card with a storage capacity of 32 GB or 64 GB. Do not use an SD or MicroSD card with a storage capacity of less than 8 GB.

1 GB of the storage capacity on an SD or MicroSD card is reserved for system use and is not available to store recordings.

When you put an SD or MicroSD card in the IP camera for the first time, the card is formatted automatically if the card does not have the ext2 file system and if the directory structure that is required for recording is not present on the card. A card with a storage capacity of 64 GB can take up to 30 minutes to format.

If you move an SD or MicroSD card from one IP camera to another, the IP camera to which you moved the card does not format the card automatically. This feature allows you to manually recover any video that is stored on the card by downloading the video from the IP camera user interface. You must format the card before you enable recording for it in the new IP camera.

If you are not using the IP camera with Cisco VSM, set the system time and time zone from the IP camera user interface before you enable recording to an SD or MicroSD card. If you are using the

IP camera with Cisco VSM, enable recording through the Cisco VSM user interface, which synchronizes the camera time with the NTP server. Changing the system time after recording starts can cause issues.

The continuous recording feature enables VSM to “auto-merge” video archive that has gaps due to network or other issues (assuming that camera was not affected), using camera storage as a temporary archiving medium. It also enables archiving only video that is close to generated events.

Either the primary stream or secondary stream can recorded in this mode.

Grooming starts when continuous recording is enabled and operates as follows:

1.

2.

Groom files that are marked as deleted.

Groom the oldest files on the local SD or MicroSD card when available space on the card is less than 1 GB.

Cisco Video Surveillance PTZ IP Camera Configuration Guide

Chapter 6 Local Storage

An IP camera has limited bandwidth for simultaneous reading from and writing to an SD or

MicroSD card, which can affect the amount of data that you can copy from the card when recording to the card is enabled. For optimum performance of the IP camera, set the maximum bit rate for the recorded stream to 6 Mbps or lower. At higher bit rates, video may not be copied from the card before the video is groomed.

Recording MJPEG streams to an SD or MicroSD card is not recommended because the relatively high bit rate of these streams can affect system performance. If you do record MJPEG streams, Cisco recommends that you stop recording before you use the IP camera user interface to copy MJPEG recordings from the card.

The system allows one active download of video from an SD card or MicroSD card at a time. If VSM is copying data from a card (due to a user or system initiated copy operation), you cannot initiate another download from the IP camera user interface until the VSM download completes. Similarly, if you are using the IP camera user interface to download video from an SD or MicroSD card, video cannot be downloaded from VSM until this download completes.

Install in the yellow banner. If a Security Warning dialog box appears, click Install .

Caution To prevent corruption to data on an SD or MicroSD card or the inability of the IP camera to detect the card again, before removing an SD or MicroSD card from an IP camera, stop recording to the card and use the Unmount button (described in

Table 6-1 ) to prepare the card for ejection. In addition, use care

when inserting, removing, and handling the card to avoid damaging the card.

Log Configuration

The Log windows allow you to set up and view the PTZ IP camera log file, which captures information about the PTZ IP camera and its activities.

The PTZ IP camera stores the log file in its internal SDRAM. If the SDRAM becomes full, the PTZ IP camera begins to overwrite existing information. To avoid losing log information, you can configure the

PTZ IP camera to send log information to a Syslog server.

Caution Because the logs are stored in the internal camera SDRAM, all existing logs in the camera are lost after a camera reboot, power-up, or power-down.

The following sections describe the Log windows in detail:

Log Setup Window, page 10-1
