Introduction

Thank you for choosing the Cisco Small Business Internet Video Camera with

Audio. This administration guide covers two models.

PVC2300 Business Internet Video Camera with Audio and PoE (Power over Ethernet)

WVC2300 Wireless-GBusiness Internet Video Camera with Audio

For the purpose of this administration guide, whenever a feature applies to both models, the word camera(s) will be referenced. If a specific model number is mentioned, then the feature is specific to that model

The Cisco camera surveillance solutions are high quality solutions which can be optimized for many different applications. The box-typeform factor allows these cameras to be usedas-isor put inside an outdoor enclosure for interior or exterior applications. The cameras use removableCS-mountlenses and can be customized with Zoom,Wide-Angled,Vari-focal,Auto-Iris(DC type), or other type of lenses as required for the specific application.

The PVC2300 provides Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality that facilitates installation of the PVC2300 in places out of reach of a power outlet.

The cameras can be remotely controlled through an RS-485interface and mounted on any PT (pan/tilt) base that supportsPelco-Dprotocol. The camera supports 2 input and 2 output connectors which can be used for connecting to an alarm panel, siren, PIR, smoke detectors, light switch (on/off), door opener, etc.

The cameras incorporate a high quality progressive scan CCD sensor, delivering good quality undistorted video. The sensor used in the cameras has low light sensitivity capability. This means that video can be viewed when very low light (near darkness) is present. Additionally, the cameras incorporate an IR Cut Filter switcher which, when used with a separate IR lamp, allows for viewing of video in total darkness.

Minimum Requirements

 

 

 

 

 

The cameras support dual CODECs—MPEG-4and MJPEG. Both CODECs can be used simultaneously.MPEG-4gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good quality compression and is optimal forreal-timeviewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality in lossy environments making it ideal for video storage to a NAS device. Lossy compression is very effective in reducing digital file sizes, resulting in smaller video file sizes with minor data loss.

The camera’s audio capabilities include 2-wayaudio, an embedded microphone, external speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression.

With extensive feature support such as IP Multicast, RTSP, RTP, and 3GPP, video can be viewed from multiple endpoints and client applications like 3G phones and Quicktime clients on PCs or Wi-Fiphones.

Support for multiple network protocols like 802.1p priority, 802.1q VLANs, and Dynamic DNS, make the solution ideal for multiple IP surveillance applications. The cameras can also be managed securely using HTTPS.

NOTE Before installing a surveillance system, check with local government agencies to determine if video surveillance and audio monitoring are permitted in your area.

Planning Your Wireless Network

A wireless local area network (WLAN) is exactly like a regular local area network (LAN), except that each computer in the WLAN uses a wireless device to connect to the network. Computers and other devices, such as peripherals, in a WLAN share the same frequency channel and SSID, which is an identification name for wireless devices. This chapter includes the following sections:

Wireless Network Layout, page 5

Additional Security Tips, page 6

Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks, page 6

Wireless Network Layout

The WVC2300 camera is compatible with 802.11g routers, such as model number WRVS4400N, as well as 802.11g access points, including model number WAP4410N. The camera can also communicate with network adapters, such as the Wireless-GNotebook Adapter (model number WPC4400N) for your laptop computers,Wireless-GPCI Adapter (model numbers WMP200) for your desktop PCs, andWireless-GUSB Adapter (model number WUSB200) for your computers that connect to the wireless network through USB modems.

With these, and many other Cisco products, your networking options are limitless. Go to the Cisco website at www.cisco.com for more information about Cisco products.

NOTE Your wireless range is variable and depends on your environment.

Additional Security Tips

 

 

 

 

 

Additional Security Tips

Keep wireless routers, access points, or gateways away from exterior walls and windows.

Turn wireless routers, access points, or gateways off when they are not being used (at night, during vacations).

Use strong passphrases that are at least eight characters in length. Combine letters and numbers to avoid using standard words that can be found in the dictionary.

Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks

Cisco wants to make wireless networking as safe and easy for you as possible. The current generation of Cisco products provide several network security features, but they require specific action on your part for implementation. So, keep the following suggestions in mind whenever you are setting up or using your wireless network. Also, see “Setting Security Precautions on the Cisco WVC2300” on page 97.

Wireless networks are easy to find. Hackers know that in order to join a wireless network, wireless networking products first listen for “beacon messages.” These messages can be easily decrypted and contain much of the network’s information, such as the network’s SSID (Service Set Identifier). Here are the steps you can take to prevent intruders:

Change the administrator’s password regularly. With every wireless networking device you use, keep in mind that network settings (SSID, WEP keys, etc.) are stored in its firmware. Your network administrator is the only person who can change network settings. If a hacker learns the administrator’s password, he, too, can change those settings. So, make it harder for a hacker to get that information. Change the administrator’s password regularly.

SSID. There are several things to keep in mind about the SSID:

Do not broadcast it

Make it unique

Change it often

Cisco PVC2300 and WVC2300 Internet Video Cameras with Audio Administration Guide

Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks

 

 

 

 

 

Most wireless networking devices will give you the option of broadcasting the SSID. While this option may be more convenient, it allows anyone to log into your wireless network. This includes hackers. So, don’t broadcast the SSID.

Wireless networking products come with a default SSID set from the factory. (The Cisco default SSID is “ciscosb”.) Hackers know these defaults and can check these against your network. Change your SSID to something unique and not something related to your company or the networking products you use.

Change your SSID regularly so that any hackers who have gained access to your wireless network will have to start from the beginning in trying to break in.

MAC Addresses. Enable MAC Address filtering. MAC Address filtering allows you to provide access to only those wireless nodes with certain MAC Addresses. This makes it harder for a hacker to access your network with a random MAC Address.

WEP Encryption. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is often looked upon as a cure-allfor wireless security concerns. This is overstating WEP’s ability. Again, this can only provide enough security to make a hacker’s job more difficult. There are several ways that WEP can be maximized:

Use the highest level of encryption possible

Use “Shared Key” authentication

Change your WEP key regularly

WPA/WPA2 Personal. WPA stands for Wi-FiProtected Access, which is a security standard stronger than WEP encryption. A network encrypted with WPA/WPA2 is more secure than a network encrypted with WEP, because WPA/WPA2 uses dynamic key encryption. To protect the information as it passes over the airwaves, you should enable the highest level.

WPA/WPA Enterprise. Enterprise refers to using RADIUS server for authentication, while RADIUS stands for Remote Authentication Dial-InUser Service. This type of authentication requires some advanced expertise because it involves setting up a RADIUS server for authentication and, in some cases, creation of certificates for both the RADIUS server and the camera.

If you are using WPA/WPA2 Enterprise security, you will need to upload security certificates to the camera. Certificates must be in the following format:

Root certificate: DER encoded binary x.509 (CER/PEM)

User certificate: Personal Information Exchange (PKCS#12(.PFX))

Cisco PVC2300 and WVC2300 Internet Video Cameras with Audio Administration Guide

Planning Your Wireless Network

Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks

 

 

 

 

 

Implementing encryption may have a negative impact on your network’s performance, but if you are transmitting sensitive data over your network, encryption should be used.

These security recommendations should help keep your mind at ease while you are enjoying the most flexible and convenient technology Cisco has to offer.

!

CAUTION Always remember that each device in your wireless network MUST use the same encryption method and encryption key or your wireless network will not function properly.

Reset

The reset button can be accessed with a straightened paper clip or similar object. The reset button has two functions:

Restore Factory Defaults—Torestore the factory default settings, press the Reset button for more than 10 seconds. When you let go of the button, the LEDs on the front of the camera will flash and then return to a normal state when the camera is ready.

Set Static IP Address—Bydefault the camera is set to receive an IP address from a DHCP server. If you do not have a DHCP server on your network, you can set a static IP address by pressing the Reset button on the camera for less than 10 seconds. A default IP address of192.168.1.99 will be assigned to the camera. This information also can set in the Setup Wizard and in theweb-basedconfiguration utility for the camera.

Tips when using the default IP address:

If the camera is connected directly to your computer, then your computer needs to be on the same subnet as the default IP address in order to access the configuration utility.

If you are using a router, you may be on a different subnet such as 192.168.2.1.

Ethernet

The Ethernet port supports network speeds of either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, and can operate in half and full-duplexmode.

Auto-sensingtechnology enables the port to automatically detect the speed of the device connected to it (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps), and adjust its speed and duplex accordingly.

The Ethernet port supports automatic MDI/MDI-Xoperation, so you can usestraight-throughor crossover cables to connect to PCs, servers, or switches.

NOTE NOTE FOR PVC2300: The PVC2300 camera’s Ethernet port also supports the IEEE 802.3afPower-over-Ethernet(PoE) standard that enables DC power to be supplied to the camera using wires in the connectingtwisted-paircable. Any 802.3afcompliant device attached to the port can directly supply power to the camera

over the twisted-paircable without requiring its own separate power source. This capability gives network administrators centralized power control, which translates into greater network availability.

To connect a device to the port, you will need to use Category 5 (or better) network cable.

NOTE NOTE FOR WVC2300: Attaching an Ethernet cable will disable the wireless interface on the WVC2300 camera. Only one interface can be active at any time.

NOTE NOTE FOR WVC2300: On the WVC2300 camera, the Ethernet cable should only be connected or disconnected when the camera is powered OFF. Attaching or detaching the Ethernet cable while the camera is powered on does NOT switch the interface between wired and wireless. In order to switch from wired to wireless or vice versa, the power needs to be disconnected and reconnected to change from one mode to the other. Disconnecting the Ethernet while power is on will merely disconnect the camera from the network.

Activity LED

The Activity LED flashes when activity is detected on the Ethernet port.

PVC2300 PoE LED

This LED only functions on the PVC2300 camera. The LED has the following states:

On—PoEconnection is detected.

Off—PoEconnection is not detected.

On the back panel, the green LED is the PoE indicator and when on, indicates that you have PoE power. If you plug in the power supply, this LED will not light up. Another good indicator is if you happen to plug in both the PoE and regular power supply, if the green LED is on, this indicates you have PoE power and if not, it indicates you have lost power from your PoE switch.

Camera Installation Guidelines

 

 

 

 

 

Camera Installation Guidelines

Consider the following guidelines before installing and mounting your cameras. While the motion detection window and the degree of sensitivity can be optimized later, it is best to optimize your camera location first.

Choose a location that provides adequate coverage of the area to be monitored.

If using the microphone in the camera, note that the cameras are designed to pick up audio from a distance (unlike a web camera that you would place near you.)

If using an external microphone or speaker, place the microphone far enough away from the speaker to avoid feedback. The volume of the speaker and the background noise of the environment will determine the exact distance, possibly up to one yard (one meter) away.

Cameras mounted outdoors should be installed in an IP66-certifiedenclosure to protect the camera from the elements, while maintaining acceptable operating temperatures. If an enclosure is used, an external microphone is required for audio.

If using motion detection, consider potential sources of false positives, such as trees and shrubs, drastic light changes, wandering animals, and traffic.

Camera Hardware Installation

Follow these steps to install the PVC2300 or WVC2300 camera:

NOTE Before attaching the camera extension or swivel head, the stand base can be mounted in a permanent location by using three screws to secure the stand base to the desired location.

STEP 1 (Optional) Attach the base of the camera stand to a permanent location by using three screws.

The 802.1p header includes a three-bitfield for prioritization, which allows packets to be grouped into various traffic classes. The IEEE has made broad recommendations concerning how network managers can implement these traffic classes, but it stops short of mandating the use of its recommended traffic class definitions. It can also be defined asbest-effortQoS (Quality of Service) or CoS (Class of Service) at Layer 2 and is implemented in network adapters and switches without involving any reservation setup. 802.1p traffic is simply classified and sent to the destination; no bandwidth reservations are established.

Configuring Port Forwarding

 

 

 

 

 

Configuring Port Forwarding

Port forwarding allows Internet access to multiple cameras that are located inside a private network. For example, you have two cameras behind a NAT router – one is on alternate port 1024 and the second one is on port 1028. To access each camera individually, setup two port forwarding rules to access the web interface of the camera. You can then go to http://x.x.x.x:####/ where x.x.x.x is the WAN IP of the router and #### is the defined alternate port on the camera.

To set up port forwarding, follow these steps:

STEP 1 From the camera’sweb-basedutility, clickSetup > Advanced Setup. The Advanced Setup window displays.

STEP 2 Check theEnable HTTP Alternative Port check box and enter a port number in the HTTP Port field. In the example, port 1028 has been configured. Valid port settings are1024-65535.

When you open the URL to the camera, you now must specify the port number. For example: http://192.168.1.99:1028

STEP 3 ClickSave and close the window.

STEP 5 From theweb-basedconfiguration utility, clickFirewall > Port Range Forwarding. This example shows the Port Range Forwarding window of the Cisco WRVS4400N router.

STEP 6 In the Port Range Forwarding window, configure the following:

a.Enter the Application name, such as Camera.

b.Enter the Start and End port. In this example, 1028 is used and this should match the alternate HTTP port configured on the camera inStep 2 on page 94.

c.Ensure that Protocol is set to Both (TCP and UDP).

d.Enter the IP address of the camera, in the IP Address field.

e.Check the Enable box to enable forwarding.

STEP 7 ClickSave to save the configuration to the router.

STEP 8 Locate the WAN IP address for your router. ClickSetup > Summary to view the WAN IP address of the router. The WAN IP address is displayed in the Network Status Setting section.

Setting Security Precautions on the Cisco WVC2300

The following is a complete list of security precautions to take (at least steps 1 through 4 should be followed):

NOTE These steps apply to the Cisco WVC2300 camera.

STEP 1 Change the default SSID from theSetup >Basic window in the Wireless settings.

Change the SSID periodically.

STEP 2 Disable SSID Broadcast on your access point or wireless router.

STEP 3 Change the default password for the administrator account from the

Administration > Userswindow.

STEP 4 Use the highest encryption algorithm possible.

Use WPA if it is available. From the Setup >Basic window, scroll to Wireless settings. Please note that this may reduce your network performance.

If using WEP, change the WEP encryption keys periodically. From the Setup >Basic window, scroll to Wireless settings.

NOTE Some of these security features are available only through the network router or access point. Refer to the router or access point’s documentation for more information.

Troubleshooting

Questions and Answers

This appendix provides solutions to problems that may occur during the installation and operation of the Cisco PVC2300 and WVC2300 Internet Video Cameras. Read the description below to solve your problems. If you can't find an answer here, see the Cisco web links in Appendix D, “Where to Go From Here.”

NOTE Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) is the supported browser for the Cisco PVC2300 and WVC2300 cameras.

Q.When I try to connect to the camera, I am prompted for a username and password.

You should be prompted for a username and password when you first connect to the camera. Enter the username and password set in the Administration > Users window. The Username/Password prompt indicates that the administrator has restricted access to specified users. Ask the administrator for your username and password. If this has not been set, you can use the default username (admin) and the default password (admin).

Q.I cannot connect to the WVC2300 Internet Camera using a wireless connection.

You must perform the initial configuration of the WVC2300 camera from a personal computer connected to the camera using a wired connection to the Ethernet port. The initial configuration cannot be performed over a wireless connection.

Once the initial configuration is complete, disconnect the Ethernet cable. If an Ethernet cable is connected to the Ethernet port, the wireless interface is disabled. In order to switch from wired to wireless (or wireless to wired) the camera needs to be rebooted.

Troubleshooting

Questions and Answers

A

Also, check that your PC and the WVC2300 camera have compatible wireless settings.

-SSID must match.

-Wireless security settings must match.

Q.My video quality suddenly deteriorated.

This can happen when an additional viewer connects to the camera, overloading the camera or the available bandwidth. The image size and quality can be adjusted to cater for the required number of viewers and the available bandwidth.

Q.The motion detection feature doesn't send me any e-mails.

It may be that the SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) server used by the camera to send the e-mailwill not accept mail. This is to prevent Spam being sent from the server. Try using a different SMTP server or contact your ISP to see if SMTP access is being blocked.

You must use a static IP address (you can copy the DHCP Address), but the DNS server must be that of the ISP and not of the router. You can find this address in the router's status log for WAN IP Address.

NOTE The secondary SMTP server is used if the camera cannot connect to the primary server. Only one SMTP server is used, even if both the primary and secondary SMTP servers are enabled.

Q.When using the motion detection feature, I receive e-mailsthat don't show any moving objects.

The motion detection feature doesn't actually detect motion. It compares frames to see if they are different. Major differences between frames are assumed to be caused by moving objects.

But the motion detector can also be triggered by sudden changes in the level of available light or movement of the camera. For example, twilight, dusk, and dawn, can cause false positive detections. Motion detection should not be used if the camera is outdoors because of the possibility of false positives. The motion detection feature works best in locations where there is good steady illumination and the camera is mounted securely.

Q.The video image is blurry.

Try cleaning the lens or adjusting the MPEG-4or MJPEG image quality setting found in“Audio/Video > Video” on page 56.

Q.How do I set up UPnP so my cameras broadcast their availability to my network?

UPnP networking technology provides automatic IP configuration and dynamic discovery of devices added to a network. Services and capabilities offered by networking devices, such as printing and file sharing, are available among each other without a lot of network configuration.

UPnP Is automatically enabled on the cameras. In a Windows environment, it may or may not be enabled. With Windows XP, you must log on to the computer as a system administrator to install the UPnP components. If using Windows Vista, UPnP Is enabled by default. However, if it is not enabled, turn off UAC (User Access Control) before following this procedure.

Follow these steps to enable UPnP user interface on your computer:

STEP 1 Go to Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.

STEP 2 In the Add or Remove Programsdialog box, click Add/Remove Windows

Components.

NOTE If the default ports are already used by another device connecting to the same router, the camera will select another port.

STEP 3 In theWindows Components Wizard dialog box, verify that Networking Services is checked.

STEP 4 Highlight Networking Services and clickDetails.

STEP 5 In the Networking Services dialog box, select Universal Plug and Play and click

OK.

STEP 6 ClickNext in the following window.

STEP 7 ClickFinish. UPnP is enabled.

Troubleshooting

Windows Help

Windows Help

A

Almost all wireless products require Microsoft Windows. Windows is the most used operating system in the world and has many features that help make networking easier. These features can be accessed through Windows Help and are described in this appendix.

TCP/IP

Before a computer can communicate with an access point or router, TCP/IP must be enabled. TCP/IP is a set of instructions, or protocol, all PCs follow to communicate over a network. Your PCs will not be able to use networking without having TCP/IP enabled. Windows Help provides complete instructions for enabling TCP/IP.

Shared Resources

If you want to share printers, folders, or files over your network, Windows Help provides complete instructions about using shared resources.

Network Neighborhood/My Network Places

Other PCs on your network appear under Network Neighborhood or My Network Places (depending upon the version of Windows you’re running). Windows Help provides complete instructions on adding PCs to your network.
