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 for a few times. Ifself-testpasses, the LEDs will shut off 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.

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 is connected 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.
