IPCAM is an integrated wireless IP Camera solution. It combines a high quality digital video
camera with network connectivity and a powerful web server on your desktop from anywhere on
your local network or over the internet.
The basic function of IPCAM is transmitting remote video on the IP network. The high quality
video image can be transmitted with 30fps/25fps speed on the LAN/WAN by using H.264
hardware compression technology.
The IPCAM is based on the TCP/IP standard. There is a WEB server inside which could support
Internet Explore. Therefore the management and maintenance of your device is simplified by
using the network to achieve the remote configuration, start-up and to upgrade the firmware.
You can use this IPCAM to monitor special places such as supermarket, bank and school. Also
controlling the IPCAM and managing image are simple by clicking the website through the
network.

2 SOFTWARE OPERATION
2.1 IP Camera Tool
When the Device has been mounted properly, you can double click the icon “IP Camera.exe”
and a dialog box as Figure 2.1 will pop up.
Figure 2.1
The software searches for the IPcam automatically over the LAN.
Our company has two series: H.264 and MJPEG. M shows that the camera belongs to MJPEG
series. H shows that the camera belongs to H.264 series. FI8601W belongs to H.264 series.
There are 3 cases:
(1) If no Camera found in LAN. After about 1 minute of searching, the Result Field will show
“not found IP Server” and the program shuts off automatically.
(2) If IP Cameras have been found within LAN. All the IP Cameras will be listed and the total
number is displayed in the result field as shown in Figure 2.1.
(3) The IP Cameras installed within LAN do not share the same subnet with the monitoring PC.
A prompt is displayed with a “Subnet doesn’t match, dbclick to change!” message. Click the
left mouse button to choose the prompt and click the right mouse, choose Network
Configuration to set the IP address of the Camera to the same subnet as the LAN. (Figure 2.5)
You can choose obtain IP from DHCP server or set a static IP for the camera. (Figure 2.4)
NOTE: If you could not find the camera’s IP on the IP camera tool.
Please check if DHCP is enabled on your router, or disable MAC address filter.
Make sure that the firewall doesn’t block the camera.
Six Options
Choose the IP Camera list and right click; there are six options, Basic Properties, Network

z Basic Properties
There are some devices information in the Basic Properties, such as Device ID, System
Firmware Version, and Web UI Version. (Figure 2.3)
If there are several cameras on the list, you can choose basic properties to check the device ID
and recognize the IP address, belong to which camera you set up, For example Device ID is
00606E8C5058, the same MAC ID sticker is found at the bottom/back of the camera.
Each camera has its own MAC ID. Sometimes, if camera’s IP is not found on the IP Camera Tool.
The firewall may be blocking it, therefore you can add this MAC ID to your router and give it a
fixed IP or add the MAC ID as a trusted site.

Second stream: CIF(352*288),QCIF(176*144). The higher the resolution is, the clearer video will
become. But the code flux will become larger too, and it will take up more bandwidth.
Bit rate: Generally speaking, the larger the bit rate is, the clearer video will become. But the bit
rate configuration should combine well with the network bandwidth. When the bandwidth is very
narrow, and bit rate is large, that will lead to video can not play well.
Note: Bit rate of the first stream range :32~2048Kpbs;Bit rate of the second stream range:32~
