Introduction
Chapter 1 Introduction
All-in-One Solution
GV-CR420 is a card reader with a built-in 4 MP wide angle IP camera. The card reader
recognizes identification cards and grants access accordingly. The wide angle camera
captures all angles of the entrance and transmits live view to GV-ASManager and GVSystem through network connection. The all-in-one solution eliminates the need of installing
and maintaining a separate camera in addition to the card reader.
Card and Face Mode
In addition to granting access after a card is presented, the integration of card reader and
wide angle camera allows you to enable the Card and Face Mode, where the camera reader
needs to be able to both recognize the card and detect a face before access is granted.
Web Interface
Using a browser, you can watch live view and utilize functions such as motion detection,
privacy mask and alert notifications through the Web interface.

There are three ways to connect the camera reader to a GV-AS Controller: through RS-485,
Wiegand or Network connection.

3.2 Assigning an IP Address
Follow the steps below to assign a new IP address.
Note:
1. The camera reader has a default IP address of 192.168.0.10. The computer used to
set the IP address must be under the same network assigned to the unit.
2.
If your router supports the DHCP server, the camera reader will obtain a dynamic IP
address from the DHCP server each time it connects to the LAN, instead of using
192.168.0.10.
1. Open your web browser, and type the default IP address http://192.168.0.10
2. In both Login and Password fields, type the default value admin. Click Apply.
3. In the left menu, select Network and then LAN to begin the network settings.

Establishing Network Connection
IMPORTANT:
•
If Dynamic IP Address or PPPoE is enabled, you need to know which IP
address the camera reader will get from the DHCP server or ISP to log in. If
your camera reader in installed in a LAN, use the GV-IP Device Utility to look up
its current dynamic address. See 3.1 Checking the Dynamic IP Address.
If your camera reader uses a public dynamic IP address, via PPPoE, use the
Dynamic DNS service to obtain a domain name linked to the camera reader’s
changing IP address first. For details on Dynamic DNS Server settings, see
5.4.2 Advanced TCP/IP.
•
If Dynamic IP Address and PPPoE is enabled and you cannot access the unit,
you may have to reset it to the factory default settings and then perform the
network settings again.
To restore the factory settings, see 6.3 Restoring to Factory Default Settings.

70
5 Administrator Mode
Figure 5-16
[Dynamic DNS Server Settings]
DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) provides a convenient way of accessing the camera
when using a dynamic IP. DDNS assigns a domain name to the camera, so that the
Administrator does not need to go through the trouble of checking if the IP address assigned
by DHCP Server or ISP (in xDSL connection) has changed.
Before enabling the following DDNS function, the Administrator should have applied for a
Host Name from the DDNS service provider’s website. There are 2 providers listed in the
camera: GeoVision DDNS Server and DynDNS.org.
To enable the DDNS function:
1. Enable: Enable the DDNS function.
2. Service Provider: Select the DDNS service provider you have registered with.
3. Host Name: Type the host name used to link to the camera. For users of GeoVision
DDNS Server, it is unnecessary to fill the field because the system will detect the host
name automatically.
4. User Name: Type the user name used to enable the service from the DDNS.
5. Password: Type the password used to enable the service from the DDNS.
6. Click Apply.
71
[HTTP Port Settings]
The HTTP port enables connecting the camera to the web. For security integration, the
Administrator can hide the server from the general HTTP port by changing the default HTTP
port of 80 to a different port number within the range of 1024 through 65535.
[HTTPS Settings]
By enabling the HTTPS settings, you can access the camera through a secure protocol. You
can change the default HTTPS port 443 to a different port number within the range of 1024
through 65535. Click Apply. The Web interface will be restarted automatically and you will
need to log in again.
[GV-IPCAM Streaming Port Settings]
The VSS port enables connecting the camera to the GV-System. The default setting is
10000.
[UPnP Settings]
UPnP (Universal Plug & Play) is a networking architecture that provides compatibility among
networking equipment, software and peripherals of the 400+ vendors that are part of the
Universal Plug and Play Forum. It means that they are listed in the network devices table for
the operating system (such as Windows XP) supported by this function. Enabling this
function, you can connect to the camera directly by clicking on the camera listed in the
network devices table.
[QoS Settings] The Quality of Service (QoS) is a bandwidth control mechanism that
guarantees delay-sensitive data flows such as voice and video streams, obtain a certain
amount of bandwidth to keep the streaming smooth.
To apply QoS to the camera reader, all network routers must support QoS and QoS must be
enabled on these devices. To enable the QoS on the camera, enter a Differentiated Services
Code Point (DSCP) value. This value is a field in an IP packet that enables different levels of
services for the network traffic. When the video stream from the camera reaches a router,
the DSCP value will tell the router what service level to be applied, e.g. the bandwidth
amount. This value ranges from 0 to 63 in decimal format. The default value is 0, meaning
QoS is disabled.
