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 front LEDs will blink between green and red a few times. Ifself-testpasses, the LED will be green and the Network Camera will standby for getting IP address. Ifself-testfails the red LED will blink several times. Refer to Appendix A for troubleshooting.

The Network Camera will first detect Ethernet. If it does not connect to Ethernet, the Network Camera will try WLAN. During the searching and connecting process to the wireless access point or station, the red LED of the Network Camera will flash every second. Until the Network Camera connects to the other wireless device, the red LED will become lighted. Operating in either network mode, the green LED will flash every second as heartbeat to indicate alive.

To install in Ethernet

Make sure the Ethernet is firmly connected to a switch hub. After attaching the Ethernet cable plug in the power adapter. If the LED turns out to be steady green after

self-test,go to next paragraph “Software installation”. If the Ethernet is not available, Network Camera will switch to wireless LAN mode.

To install in wireless LAN

If the Ethernet is not available while power on, the Network Camera will search for any access point with the SSID “default”. Once any access point is found, the LED will turn green to wait for installation. If the network environment cannot meet the default settings, install Network Camera in Ethernet to proceed with wireless LAN configuration.

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

Consult with the dealer of the peripherals for correct installation.

Software installation

In this manual, "User" refers to whoever has access to the Network Camera, and "Administrator" refers to the person who can configure the Network Camera and grant user access to the camera.

At the end of the hardware installation, users can use Installer 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 bottom of the Network Camera body.

The IP addresses shown in the "Current IP Address" field reflect those on the local network. They may be from the DHCP server. If there is no DHCP server, the camera will try to find a free IP address (this takes from 15 second to 3 minutes, depending on the LAN status). The method of finding IP address is seeking from 192.168.0.99
