Install the Device behind a NAT
Router
Once installed, the device is accessible on your LAN. To access the device from the
Internet you must configure your broadband router to allow incoming data traffic to the
device. If the device is installed on the LAN with a router, then it may get a dynamic IP
address from the DHCP server. However, if the device wants to be accessed from the
WAN, its IP address needs to be setup as fixed IP, also the port forwarding or Virtual
Server function of router needs to be setup.
However, if your NAT router supports UPnP feature, it can be very easy to achieve NAT
traversal automatically. To do this, enable the NAT-traversal feature, which will attempt
to automatically configure the router to allow access to the camera.
Installing the device with an UPnP router on your network is an easy 3–step procedure:
 (1) Enable UPnP option of your NAT router
 (2) Enable UPnP NAT traversal option of the Network Camera (default)
 (3) Access your Network Camera by DDNS
(1) Enable UPnP option of your NAT router
To use UPnP IGD function (NAT traversal), you need to make sure the UPnP function is
enabled in your router. Most new home routers should support this function. Some of
routers are default enable and others are not. Please check user’s manual of your NAT
router for detail.
(2) Enable UPnP NAT traversal option of the Network Camera
Refer to Setting  Network  UPnP page for detail NAT traversal setting. Note that
this option is default enabled.

MAC address:
Displays the Ethernet MAC address of the device. Note that user can not modify it.
Obtain IP address automatically (DHCP):
DHCP: Stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.
Enable this checked box when a DHCP server is installed on the network to issue IP
address assignment. With this setting, the IP address is assigned automatically. If this
device can not get an IP address within limited tries, the device will assign a default IP
address, 192.168.0.100, by itself as the default IP address.
IP address, Subnet mask, and Gateway:
If you do not select Obtain an IP address automatically, then you need to enter these
network parameters manually.
Obtain DNS from DHCP:
DNS: Stands for Domain Name System.
Enable this checked box when a DHCP server is installed on the network and provide
DNS service.
Primary DNS and Secondary DNS:
If you do not select Obtain DNS from DHCP, then you need to enter these parameters
manually.
HTTP Port:
The device supports two HTTP ports. The first one is default port 80 and this port is fixed.
This port is very useful for Intranet usage. The second HTTP port is changeable. Users
could assign the second port number of http protocol, and the WAN users should follow
30/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
the port number to login. If the http port is not assigned as 80, users have to add the port
number in back of IP address. For example: http://192.168.0.100:8080.
Therefore, the user can access the device by either
http://xx.xx.xx.xx/, or
http://xx.xx.xx.xx:xxxx/ to access the device.
If multiple devices are installed on the LAN and also required to be accessed from the
WAN, then the HTTP Port can be assigned as the virtual server port mapping to support
multiple devices.
Click “OK” to save and enable the setting.
IPv6
The IP communication protocol used for current Internet is having the problem of
insufficient IP addresses. The one-for-all solution is the new-generation internet protocol,
IPv6. IPv6 has 16-byte long address space, offering a huge number of addresses, and
also provides better scalability, quality of service, mobility, and security to the network.
IPv6:

HTTPS
HTTPS: Stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure
HTTPS is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol to
provide encrypted communication and secure identification of a network web server.
HTTPS connections are often used for sensitive transactions in corporate information
systems. The main idea of HTTPS is to create a secure channel over an insecure
network. This ensures reasonable protection from eavesdroppers and man-in-the-middle
attacks, provided that adequate cipher suites are used and that the server certificate is
verified and trusted.
HTTPS:
To enable or disable the HTTPS service here. Note that the HTTPS function of this
device is not only encrypted the web content but also audio/video data.
If the HTTPS is enabled, there is further option for “HTTP&HTTPS” or “HTTPS only”. In
case, the “HTTPS only” is enabled, all packets from the Camera will go through HTTPS
only and HTTP service is no longer available.
Port:
Choose the HTTPS port. The default value is 443.
DDNS service
32/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
DDNS: Stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) provides you at least one IP address which you use
to connect to the Internet. The address you get may be static, meaning it never changes,
or dynamic, meaning it’s likely to change periodically. Just how often it changes,
depends on your ISP. A dynamic IP address complicates remote access since you may
not know what your current WAN IP address is when you want to access your device
over the Internet. One of the possible solutions to the dynamic IP address problem
comes in the form of a dynamic DNS service.
A dynamic DNS service is unique because it provides a means of updating your IP
address so that your listing will remain current when your IP address changes. There are
several excellent DDNS services available on the Internet. One such service you can
use is www.DynDNS.org. You’ll need to register with the service and set up the domain
name of your choice to begin using it.
If your device is connected to xDSL directly, you might need this feature. However, if
your device is behind a NAT router, you will not need to enable this feature because
your NAT router should take care of this job. As to xDSL environment, most of the users
will use dynamic IP addresses. If users want to set up a web or a FTP server, then the
Dynamic Domain Name Server is necessary.
DDNS:
To enable or disable the DDNS service here.
Server name:
Choose one of the built-in DDNS servers.
DDNSHost:
The domain name is applied of this device.
33/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
User name:
The user name is used to log into DDNS.
Password:
The password is used to log into DDNS.
PPPoE
PPPoE: Stands for Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet
A standard builds on Ethernet and Point-to-Point network protocol. It allows your device
with xDSL or cable connects with broadband network directly, then your device can dial

Streaming
RTSP is a streaming control protocol, and a starting point for negotiating transports such
as RTP, multicast and Unicast, and for negotiating codecs. RTSP can be considered a
"remote control" for controlling the media stream delivered by a media server. RTSP
servers typically use RTP as the protocol for the actual transport of audio/video data.
RTSP Port:
Choose the RTSP port. The RTSP protocol allows a connecting client to start a video
stream. Enter the RTSP port number to use. The default value is 554.
35/101

RTP Port:
Specify the range of transmission port number of video stream. The default range is
50000 to 50999. User can specify a number between 1024 and 65535.
UPnP
UPnP is short for Universal Plug and Play, which is a networking architecture that
provides compatibility among networking equipment, software, and peripherals. This
device is an UPnP enabled Network Camera. If your operating system is UPnP enabled,
the device will automatically be detected and a new icon will be added to “My Network
Places.” If you do not want to use the UPnP functionality, it can be disabled.
In addition, this device also provides UPnP IGD function for NAT traversal easily. Use
NAT traversal when your device is located on an intranet (LAN) and you wish to make it
available from the other (WAN) side of a NAT router. With NAT traversal properly
configured, all HTTP traffic to an external HTTP port in the NAT router will be forwarded
to the device.

Bonjour
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of
computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP
protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter
IP addresses or configure DNS servers. Specifically, Bonjour enables automatic IP
address assignment without a DHCP server, name to address translation without a DNS
server, and service discovery without a directory server. Bonjour is an open protocol
which Apple has submitted to the IETF as part of the ongoing standards-creation
process.

DIS (Digital Image Stabilization):
This function is used to reduce blurring associated with the motion of a camera during
exposure. Specifically, it compensates for pan and tilt of a camera. With video cameras,
camera shake causes visible frame-to-frame jitter in the recorded video.
Real-time digital image stabilization is used to shift the electronic image from frame to
frame of video, enough to counteract the motion. This technique reduces distracting
vibrations from videos or improves still image quality by allowing one to increase the
exposure time without blurring the image. This technique does not effect the noise level
of the image.

SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an "Internet-standard protocol for
managing devices on IP networks". Devices that typically support SNMP include routers,
switches, servers, workstations, printers, and more. It is used mostly in network
management systems to monitor network-attached devices for conditions that warrant
administrative attention.
SNMP is a component of the Internet Protocol Suite as defined by the Internet
Engineering Task Force (IETF). It consists of a set of standards for network
management, including an application layer protocol, a database schema, and a set of
data objects. SNMP exposes management data in the form of variables on the managed
62/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
systems, which describe the system configuration. These variables can then be queried
(and sometimes set) by managing applications.
SNMP version 1 (SNMPv1) is the initial implementation of the SNMP protocol. SNMPv1
operates over protocols such as User Datagram Protocol (UDP), Internet Protocol (IP),
OSI Connectionless Network Service (CLNS), AppleTalk Datagram-Delivery Protocol
(DDP), and Novell Internet Packet Exchange (IPX). SNMPv1 is widely used and is the
de facto network-management protocol in the Internet community
SNMPv2c, is defined in RFC 1901–RFC 1908. In its initial stages, this was also
informally known as SNMPv1.5. SNMPv2c comprises SNMPv2 without the controversial
new SNMP v2 security model, using instead the simple community-based security
scheme of SNMPv1. While officially only a "Draft Standard", this is widely considered the
de facto SNMPv2 standard.

Set ON/OFF for the moving shadow exemption function of object detection. Selecting Do
not respond to shadows will prevent the shadows of a moving object from being
recognized as moving objects.
Note that this function is not recommended for camera with PTZ/ePTZ actions.
Camera Tampering
Camera tampering detection is a new intelligent functionality that further strengthens the
benefit of Network Camera. When the camera is moved, partially obscured, severely
defocused, covered or sprayed, an event can be triggered to send notifications, upload
images/files to remote server or email.
68/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
Camera Tampering:
Select the Enable to activate the function to detect camera tampering, such as direction
shifting or defocused.
Defocus Alarm Method:
Define the minimum triggered duration by camera tampering detection. The triggered
duration less than target value will be ignored to filter false alarms.
Note that this function is not recommended for camera with PTZ/ePTZ actions.
Audio Detection
Audio detection alarm can be used as a complement to motion detection. Since audio
detection can react to events in areas too dark for the video motion detection
functionality to work properly. In addition, it can be used to detect activity in areas
outside of the camera’s view.
69/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
Audio Alarm Level:
Define the threshold value of audio detection.
Face Detection
70/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
Face detection responds to faces in the camera image and triggers an alarm.
Enable / Disable:
Select the Enable to activate the function to detect human face. The detected faces will
be marked by rectangles.
Cross Line Detection
Cross Line Detection is a so called tripwire application. The application detects moving
objects that cross a virtual line. Once cross line detected, camera is able to trigger an
event automatically.
Cross Line Detection is possible to increase system efficiency by reducing bandwidth
and storage needs. The application will work in most indoor and outdoor installations
and in variable lighting conditions. It is well suited for many situations, including video
monitoring of building entrances, loading docks, and parking lots.
Cross Line Detection is an application especially suitable for general entrance and exit
detection in low traffic areas. It detects objects such as persons and vehicles that cross
a defined virtual line.
Cross Line Detection is easy to configure. A virtual line is positioned in the camera’s live
view and the detection direction is set. Once placed in the image there is no need for
further adjustments.
The real time visual confirmation validates in an easy way that the application detects
objects correctly. Cross Line Detection integrates with the camera’s internal event
manager enabling various system notifications.

Appendix C: PING IP Address
The PING (stands for Packet Internet Groper) command is used to detect whether a
specific IP address is accessible by sending a packet to the specific address and waiting
for a reply. It’s also a very useful tool to confirm the device installed or if the IP address
conflicts with any other devices over the network.
If you want to make sure the IP address of the device, utilize the PING command as
follows:

Launch a Command Prompt.

Type ping x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the device. For
example, ping 192.168.0.100
The replies, as illustrated below, will provide an explanation to the problem.
If you want to detect any other devices conflicts with the IP address of Network Camera,
also can utilize the PING command but you must disconnect the Camera from the
network first.

Appendix D: Bandwidth Estimation
The frame rate of video transmitted from the device depends on connection bandwidth
between client and server, video resolution, codec type, and quality setting of server.
Here is a guideline to help you roughly estimate the bandwidth requirements form your
device.
The required bandwidth depends on content of video source. The slow motion video will
produce smaller bit rate generally and fast motion will produce higher bit rate vice versa.
Actual results generated by the device may be varying.

Note: Audio streaming also consumes some bandwidth. Some xDSL/Cable
modem upload speeds could not even reach up to 128 kbps. Thus, you may
not be able to receive good quality video while also streaming audio on a 128
kbps or lower connection. Even though the upload speed is more than
128kbps, for optimal video performance, disabling audio streaming will get
better video performance.

Appendix F: Configure Port
Forwarding Manually
The device can be used with a router. If the device wants to be accessed from the WAN,
its IP address needs to be setup as fixed IP address, also the port forwarding or Virtual
Server function of router needs to be setup. This device supports UPnP traversal
function. Therefore, user could use this feature to configure port forwarding of NAT
router first. However, if user needs to configure port forwarding manually, please follow
the steps as below:
Manually installing the device with a router on your network is an easy 3–step procedure
as following:
 (1) Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
 (2) Access the Router with Your Web browser
 (3) Open/Configure Virtual Server Ports of Your Router
(1) Assign a local/fixed IP address to your device
The device must be assigned a local and fixed IP Address that allows it to be recognized
by the router. Manually setup the device with a fixed IP address, for example,
192.168.0.100.
(2) Access the Router with Your Web browser
If you have cable or DSL service, you will most likely have a dynamically assigned WAN
IP Address. ‘Dynamic’ means that your router’s WAN IP address can change from time
to time depending on your ISP. A dynamic WAN IP Address identifies your router on the
public network and allows it to access the Internet. To find out what your router’s WAN
IP Address is, go to the Status screen on your router and locate the WAN information
for your router.
Note: Because a dynamic WAN IP can change from time to time depending on your
ISP, you may want to obtain a Static IP address from your ISP. A Static IP address is a
fixed IP address that will not change over time and will be more convenient for you to
use to access your camera from a remote location. If you could not get a Static IP
address from your ISP, the DDNS™ or DDNS is a solution alternatively.
(3) Open/set Virtual Server Ports to enable remote image viewing
The firewall security features built into the router and most routers prevent users from
99/101
Network Camera User’s Guide
accessing the video from the device over the Internet. The router connects to the
Internet over a series of numbered ports. The ports normally used by the device are
blocked from access over the Internet. Therefore, these ports need to be made
accessible over the Internet. This is accomplished using the Virtual Server function on
the router. The Virtual Server ports used by the camera must be opened through the
router for remote access to your camera..
Important: Some ISPs block access to port 80. Be sure to check with your ISP so that
you can open the appropriate ports accordingly. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port
80, you will need to change the port the camera uses from 80 to something else, such as
8080. Not all routers are the same, so refer to your user manual for specific instructions
on how to open ports.
Enter valid ports in the Virtual Server section of your router. Please make sure to check
the box on this line to enable settings. Then the device can be access from WAN by the
router’s WAN IP Address.
