neglected.

Warnings Follow these safeguards to Cautions Follow these precautions to prevent serious injury or death. prevent potential injury or material

damage.

Warnings:

Please adopt the power adapter which can meet the safety extra low voltage (SELV) standard. And source with 12 VDC or 24 VAC (depending on models) according to the IEC60950-1 and Limited Power Source standard.

To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, do not expose this product to rain or moisture.

This installation should be made by a qualified service person and should conform to all the local codes.

Please install blackouts equipment into the power supply circuit for convenient supply interruption.

Please make sure that the ceiling can support more than 50(N) Newton gravities if the camera is fixed to the ceiling.

If the product does not work properly, please contact your dealer or the nearest service center. Never attempt to disassemble the camera yourself. (We shall not

4

Network Camera User Manual

assume any responsibility for problems caused by unauthorized repair or

maintenance.)

Cautions:

Make sure the power supply voltage is correct before using the camera.

Do not drop the camera or subject it to physical shock.

Do not touch sensor modules with fingers. If cleaning is necessary, use a clean cloth with a bit of ethanol and wipe it gently. If the camera will not be used for an extended period of time, put on the lens cap to protect the sensor from dirt.

Do not aim the camera lens at the strong light such as sun or incandescent lamp. The strong light can cause fatal damage to the camera.

The sensor may be burned out by a laser beam, so when any laser equipment is being used, make sure that the surface of the sensor not be exposed to the laser beam.

Do not place the camera in extremely hot, cold temperatures (the operating temperature should be between -30°C to +60°C, or -40°C to +60°C if the camera model has an “H” in its suffix), dusty or damp environment, and do not expose it to high electromagnetic radiation.

To avoid heat accumulation, ensure there is good ventilation to the device.

Keep the camera away from water and any liquids.

While shipping, pack the camera in its original, or equivalent, packing materials. Or packing the same texture.

Improper use or replacement of the battery may result in hazard of explosion. Please use the manufacturer recommended battery type.

Notes:

For the camera supports IR, you are required to pay attention to the following

precautions to prevent IR reflection:

Dust or grease on the dome cover will cause IR reflection. Please do not remove the dome cover film until the installation is finished. If there is dust or grease on

5

Network Camera User Manual

the dome cover, clean the dome cover with clean soft cloth and isopropyl alcohol.

Make certain the installation location does not have reflective surfaces of objects too close to the camera. The IR light from the camera may reflect back into the lens causing reflection.

The foam ring around the lens must be seated flush against the inner surface of the bubble to isolate the lens from the IR LEDS. Fasten the dome cover to camera body so that the foam ring and the dome cover are attached seamlessly.

2.2 Setting the Network Camera over the WAN

Purpose:

This section explains how to connect the network camera to the WAN with a static IP or a dynamic IP.

2.2.1 Static IP Connection

Before you start:

Please apply a static IP from an ISP (Internet Service Provider). With the static IP address, you can connect the network camera via a router or connect it to the WAN directly.

Connecting the network camera via a router

Steps:

1. Connect the network camera to the router.

9

Network Camera User Manual

2.Assign a LAN IP address, the subnet mask and the gateway. Refer to Section 2.1.2 for detailed IP address configuration of the network camera.

3.Save the static IP in the router.

4.Set port mapping, e.g., 80, 8000, and 554 ports. The steps for port mapping vary according to the different routers. Please call the router manufacturer for assistance with port mapping.

Note: Refer to Appendix 2 for detailed information about port mapping.

5.Visit the network camera through a web browser or the client software over the internet.

Figure 2-10 Accessing the Camera through Router with Static IP

Connecting the network camera with static IP directly

You can also save the static IP in the camera and directly connect it to the internet without using a router. Refer to Section 2.1.2 for detailed IP address configuration of the network camera.

Figure 2-11 Accessing the Camera with Static IP Directly

2.2.2 Dynamic IP Connection

Before you start:

Please apply a dynamic IP from an ISP. With the dynamic IP address, you can connect the network camera to a modem or a router.

Connecting the network camera via a router

Steps:

10

Network Camera User Manual

1.Connect the network camera to the router.

2.In the camera, assign a LAN IP address, the subnet mask and the gateway. Refer to Section 2.1.2 for detailed IP address configuration of the network camera.

3.In the router, set the PPPoE user name, password and confirm the password.

4.Set port mapping. E.g. 80, 8000, and 554 ports. The steps for port mapping vary depending on different routers. Please call the router manufacturer for assistance with port mapping.

Note: Refer to Appendix 2 for detailed information about port mapping.

5.Apply a domain name from a domain name provider.

6.Configure the DDNS settings in the setting interface of the router.

7.Visit the camera via the applied domain name.

Connecting the network camera via a modem

Purpose:

This camera supports the PPPoE auto dial-up function. The camera gets a public IP address by ADSL dial-up after the camera is connected to a modem. You need to configure the PPPoE parameters of the network camera. Refer to Section 7.1.3

Configuring PPPoE Settings for detailed configuration.

Figure 2-12 Accessing the Camera with Dynamic IP

Note: The obtained IP address is dynamically assigned via PPPoE, so the IP address always changes after rebooting the camera. To solve the inconvenience of the dynamic IP, you need to get a domain name from the DDNS provider (E.g. DynDns.com). Please follow the steps below for normal domain name resolution and private domain name resolution to solve the problem.

Normal Domain Name Resolution

11

Network Camera User Manual

Figure 2-13 Normal Domain Name Resolution

Steps:
