Digital Input/Output Terminal

This Network Camera provides a general I/O terminal block with one digital input and one digital output device control.

Software Installation

When the hardware installation is complete, users can use the Installation Wizard program included in the product CDROM to find the location of the Network Camera. There may be many Network Cameras in the local network. Users can differentiate the Network Cameras with the serial number. The serial number is printed on the labels on the carton and the back of the Network Camera body. Please refer to the user’s manual for the Installation Wizard for more details.

Once the installation is complete, the Administrator should proceed to the next section "Initial access to the Network Camera" for necessary checks and configurations.

Initial Access to the Network Camera

Check Network Settings

The Network Camera can be connected either before or immediately after software installation onto the Local Area Network. The Administrator should complete the network settings on the configuration page, including the correct subnet mask and IP address of the gateway and the DNS Servers. Ask your network administrator or Internet service provider for the details. If any setting is entered incorrectly and you cannot proceed with setting up the Network Camera, restore the factory settings following the steps in the “Troubleshooting” chapter in the Appendix.

Add Password to Prevent Unauthorized Access

The default Administrator’s password is blank and the Network Camera initially will not ask for any password. The Administrator should immediately assign a new password as a matter of prudent security practice. Once the Administrator’s password is saved,

the Network Camera will ask for the user’s name and password before each access. The Administrator can set up a maximum of twenty (20) user accounts. Each user can access the Network Camera except to perform system configuration. Some critical functions such as system configuration, user administration, and software upgrades are accessible only by the Administrator. The user name for the Administrator is permanently assigned as “root”. Once the password is changed, the browser will display an authentication window to ask for the new password. Once the password is set, there is no provision to recover the

Administrator’s password. The only option is to restore to the original factory default settings.
