default account. The default password is "pass". If the IP camera is on Internet with global IP address,
you can access it directly the IP camera by using DDNS host name.
The IP camera tries to automatically register to www.ddnsipcam.com without further registering. For
example, type “24094f.ddnsipcam.com” in a browser with login name “24094f” and password “pass”
for login into the IP camera, if the IP camera is on Internet.

Chapter 3-8 Alarm Settings
H.264 D1 video server or IP PTZ camera’s hardware alarm system contains motion detection, alarm
sensors, and one alarm/relay output. Many alarm features such as motion/alarm email notification
and FTP archiving can be found at this section.
Chapter 3-8-1 Motion/Alarm Setup
There are motion detection zones allowed in the H.264 D1 video server or IP PTZ camera. A user
can enable the detection zones with different sensitivities ranging from 1 to 99 (highest to lowest) for
motion detection. Once a suspicious motion activity gets triggered, H.264 D1 video server or IP PTZ
camera can start to capture one JPEG snapshot on various recording mediums.
Chapter 3-8-2 Alarm (DI) Input Detection
 Alarm Notification—Enable alarm notification.
 Alarm Input Mode—Normal open/normal close for detecting alarm input
 Alarm Output Time—Trigger alarm output based on the dwell.
For video encoder model, since there are two alarm outputs, a user can specify alarm output time.

Appendix
Advance Network DDNS and PPPoE Technologies
The advantage of using DDNS and PPPoE is to save the cost of IP address. H.264 AVC IP
camera’s PPPoE service gets a dynamic global IP address after system reboot. This IP address
may get changed periodically. This is the address needed to access the video server over Internet.
When ISP re-assigns a new IP address to H.264 AVC IP camera, H.264 AVC IP camera notifies
DDNS service. A remote PC can access H.264 AVC IP camera by typing domain name in a
browser. The domain name gets resolved by DDNS service and gets translated to its dynamic
global IP address. The dynamic global IP address can now be accessed by the remote PC.

Advance Network Port Forwarding Technology
Port forwarding technology is an advanced network technology which is widely used for using one
global IP shared by many network devices. The network architecture is illustrated as below. Port
80 of the router (192.168.0.10) is assigned to the device IP address, 192.168.0.10. Port 81 of the
router is assigned to the device IP address, 192.168.0.11. When Remote PC accesses the router’s
port 86 (122.116.191.129), it eventually accesses the video server at 192.168.0.11.
