Installation

Hardware Installation

Please verify that your product package contains all the accessories listed in the foregoing Package Contents. Depending on the user’s application, an Ethernet cable may be needed. The Ethernet cable should meet the specs of UTP Category 5 and not exceed 100 meters in length.

Connect the power adapter jack to the Network Camera before plugging in to the power socket. This will reduce the risk of accidental electric shock.

Upon powering up, the device runs through a self-testprocedure and the LEDs will blink between green and red for a few times. Ifself-testpasses, the green LED will shut off while the red LED is constantly on and the Network Camera will be onstand-byand ready for software installation. Ifself-testfails the red LED will blink several times. Refer to Appendix A for troubleshooting.

Ethernet Connection

Make sure the Ethernet is firmly connected to a switch hub; then, plug in the power adapter. If the LED turns out to be steady green after self-test,go to next paragraph “Software Installation”.

The Network Camera provides a general I/O terminal block with one digital input and one relay switch for device control. Pin 3 and Pin 4 can be connected to an external sensor device and the state of voltage can be monitored from the initial state 'LOW'. The relay switches Pin 1 and Pin 2 can be used to turn on or off an external device.
