Assign an lP address
lnstall the hardware
IMPORTANT! - The 210/210A is designed for indoor use only, and must
always be positioned where it is not exposed to direct sunlight or strong
halogen light, which can cause permanent damage to the camera's image
sensor. Damage as a result of exposure to strong light is not covered by the
Axis warranty.
IMPORTANT! - The AXIS 211/211A is designed for indoor and outdoor use. To
use the camera outdoors, it must be installed in an approved outdoor housing.
Please see for more information on outdoor housings.
To make it accessible on the network, the AXIS 210/21OA/211/211A must be assigned an IP
Depending on the number of cameras you wish to install, the recommended method for
assigning IF addresses in Windows is either AXIS IP Utility or AXIS Camera Management.
Use the method that best suits your purpose.
Both of these free applications are available on the Axis Network Video Product CD supplied
with this product, or they can be downloaded from

Connect the Network Camera to your network using a standard network cable. Using
Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) cables is recommended.
2. Optionally connect external input/output devices, e.g. alarm devices. See page 15 for
information on the terminal connector pins.
3. Optionally, connect an active speaker and/or external microphone.
4. Connect power, using one of the methods listed below:
The supplied power connector.
Power over Ethernet (PoE). If available, this is automatically detected when the
network cable is connected (see above).
The 1/0 terminal connector on the rear panel.
5. Check that the indicator LED:s indicate the correct conditions. See the table on page 16
for further details. Note that some LED:s can be disabled and may be unlit.
A network DHCP server is optional.
The AXIS 210/210A/211/211A has the default IP address
If assigning the IP address fails, check that there is no firewall blocking the operation.
For other methods of assigning or discovering the IP address of the AXIS 210/210A/211/211A, e.g. in
other operating systems, see page 10.

AX1S lP Utility - single camera/small installation
AX1S Camera Management - multiple cameras/large installations
AXIS IP Utility automatically discovers and displays Axis devices on your network. The
application can also be used to manually assign a static IF address.
AXIS Camera Management can automatically find and set IP addresses, show connection
status, and manage firmware upgrades for multiple Axis video products.
Note that the computer running AXIS IP Utility must be on the same network segment
(physical subnet) as the AXIS 21O/21OA/211/211A.
Automatic discovery
1. Check that the AXIS 21O/21OA/211/211A is connected to the network and that power has
been applied.
2. Start AXIS IP Utility.
When the camera appears in the window, double-click it to open its home page.
4. See page 10 for instructions on how to assign the password.

4. Click the Home Page button to access the camera's web pages.
5. See page 10 for instructions on how to set the password.
AXIS Camera Management speeds up the process of assigning IP addresses to multiple
devices, by suggesting IP addresses from a specified range.
Select the devices you wish to configure (different models can be selected) and click the
Assign IP button.
2. Select Obtain IP addresses automatically (DHCP), click the Update button and the
program will search in the specified range and suggest an IP address for each device.
-orEnter the range of IF addresses, the subnet mask and default router that devices can use

I/O terminal connector - Used in applications for e.g. motion detection, event triggering,
time lapse recording, alarm notifications, etc. It provides the interface to:
Power connector - Mini DC connector. 7-20V DC, max 5W.
AUddiO in - 3.5mm i~put for a mono microphone, or a line-in mono signal (left channel is
use rrom a stereo Signal).
Audio o~t - Audio ou:rut (line level) that can be connected to a public address (PA) system
or an active speaker wIth a built-in amplifier. A pair of headphones can also be attached A
stereo connector must be used for the audio out.
1 transistor output - For connecting external devices such as relays and LEDs.
Connected devices can be activated by AXIS VAPIX API, output buttons on the
Live View page or by an Event Type. The output will show as active (shown
under Event Configuration> Port Status) if the alarm device is activated.
1 digital input - An alarm input for connecting devices that can toggle between
an open and closed circuit, for example: PIRs, door/window contacts, glass break
detectors, etc. When a signal is received the state changes and the input becomes
active (shown under Event Configuration> Port StahIs).
