INSTEON® Wireless IP Camera

Upon installation completion, restart computer. The IP Camera Tool icon will appear on the desktop automatically.

NOTE: If you use Windows 7 and there is no icon on desktop after installation of the IP Camera Tool, check the camera software installation path. For example, if the path reads C:\Windows\System32\IPCamera.exe, then edit the shortcut to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\IPCamera.exe.

CAUTION: Use only the power adapter attached with the product. Using an unauthorized power adapter may cause damage to your Camera. The IP Camera should be installed indoors only.

1.4.2 Camera Installation

NOTE: The IP Camera should only be installed indoors.

1)Screw in WiFi antenna and adjust it so it points straight up

2)Plug network cable into camera and into your router

3)Plug power adapter into the camera and then into the power outlet.

CAUTION: Make sure to only use the power adapter supplied with the camera. Using a non-approved power adapter may damage the camera.

When the camera is powered and the network cable is plugged in correctly, the small green network LED will turn on and the small yellow LAN port LED will flash. Network light will blink and power light will turn on.

2.0SOFTWARE OPERATION

2.1IP Camera Tool

When camera has been installed, open IP Camera Tool program on your computer. It will automatically begin searching for your camera over the LAN.

insteon.com

5

INSTEON® Wireless IP Camera

There are three possible scenarios:

1)If no camera is found on the LAN: after about one minute of searching, the field will display “IP Server not found” and automatically shut down IP Camera Tool program. Check if DHCP is enabled on your router, or disable MAC address filtering if on WiFi. Also, make sure that your firewall (if used) isn’t blocking access to the camera.

2)If cameras are found on the LAN: all of the cameras will be listed and the total number will be displayed in the result field (as shown above).

3)If cameras found on the LAN do not share the same subnet with the computer: a prompt will be displayed. Click right mouse button to choose “Network Configuration.” This will set the IP address of the camera to the same subnet as the LAN. You can also choose “Obtain IP from DHCP server” or “set a static IP for the camera.”

NOTE: If you could not find the camera’s IP on the IP Camera Tool, check that DHCP is enabled on your router, that your MAC address filter is disabled and that a firewall or antivirus software isn’t blocking the camera.

Setup Options

Right-click the IP camera to display six options: Basic Properties, Network Configuration, Upgrade Firmware, Refresh Camera List, Flush Arp Buffer and About IP Camera Tool:

Basic Properties: Find device information such as device ID, the system firmware version and web UI version

If there are several cameras on the list, then choose Basic Properties to check the device ID and find that camera’s specific IP address. For example, if device ID is 00606E8C5058, it will have the same MAC address as found on the sticker on the bottom/back of the camera.

Each camera has its own MAC address. Sometimes, if a camera’s IP address is not found on the IP Camera Tool, the firewall may be blocking it. In that case, you can either add the MAC address to your router and give it a fixed IP, or add the MAC address as a trusted site. There are two MAC addresses:

insteon.com

6

INSTEON® Wireless IP Camera

one is a wired MAC, and the other is a WiFi MAC.

Network Configuration: Configure network parameters

Obtain IP from DHCP server: If checked, camera will obtain its IP address from your DHCP server

IP Address: Fill in the assigned IP address. Make sure you are using an address that is on the same subnet as your PC.

Subnet Mask: Use the subnet mask that matches your LAN

insteon.com

7

INSTEON® Wireless IP Camera

Gateway: This is your internet gateway and usually the address of your router

DNS Servers: Either use the DNS server address assigned by your ISP or one from a third party like Google (8.8.8.8) or OpenDNS (x.x.x.x)

HTTP Port: The default port is 80. You can set another port number, such as port 8005, 85, 8100, etc. for port forwarding.

User: Default administrator user name is “admin”

Password: There is no default password

NOTE: If the prompt “Subnet doesn’t match, dbclick to change!” appears, enable DHCP and choose obtain IP from DHCP server, or set camera’s IP address and gateway once again.

4.0APPENDIX

4.1Frequently Asked Questions

Always confirm connectivity with your LAN and the internet prior to testing your camera.

4.1.1 I forgot my username and/or password.

Reset the administrator username and password by making sure the camera is powered on, then pressing and holding the camera reset button for 15 seconds. This will factory restore the username and password to “admin” with no password.

4.1.2 Why do I keep seeing “Subnet doesn’t match, dbclick to change”?

If IP Camera Tool shows this error, select Obtain IP from DHCP server. If this error still exists afterward, check your LAN connection and verify that the camera subnet and gateway are the same as your computer.

4.1.3 Why isn’t my video streaming or showing images?

The video streaming is transmitted by the ActiveX controller. If ActiveX controller isn’t installed correctly you will not see the video image. There are two ways to resolve this problem:

1)Reinstall IP Camera Tool and ActiveX control

2)Download ActiveX controller and set IE’s security setting of IE: IEToolInternet ProperSecurityCustom LevelActiveX control and Plug-ins. Enable the following:

Download unsigned ActiveX controls

Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe

Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins

insteon.com

37

INSTEON® Wireless IP Camera

If ActiveX is running but you still cannot see live video, a red cross is displayed in the center of the

video and a yellow light appears in the device status, change the port number (do not use port number 80).

Note: Make sure that your firewall or anti-virus software does not block the camera or ActiveX. If you still cannot see live video, try shutting down the firewall or anti-virus software and try again.

4.1.4 Why isn’t my camera accessible via the Internet?

1.ActiveX controller is not installed correctly

2.The port that the camera is using is blocked by a firewall or anti-virus software. Try changing the port number.

insteon.com

38

INSTEON® Wireless IP Camera

3. Port forwarding is not successful (see How to Set DDN Service Settings in the Quick Start Guide).

4.1.5 IP Camera Tool can’t find my camera’s IP.

1.Verify that the network cable is securely fastened to the camera

2.Make sure DHCP is enabled and MAC address filter is disabled on your router

3, Make sure that a firewall or anti-virus software does not block the camera. You can add the camera as a trusted site through your firewall or anti-virus software.

4.1.6 Why has the UPnP failed?

The UPnP only contains port forwarding. Sometimes, port forwarding may fail automatically because of a firewall or anti-virus software. It may also be due to the router’s security settings. Manually configure port forwarding so the camera can be viewed on the internet.

4.1.7 Why can’t I find a desktop shortcut to IP Camera Tool?

If you use Windows 7 or Vista and the shortcut is missing after installing IP Camera Tool, check the program path. For example, if the path reads: C:\Windows\System32\IPCamera.exe, then change it to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\IPCamera.exe. After this you should be able to use the shortcut without any problems.

4.1.8 Why can’t I change the record path?

If you use Windows 7 or Vista, you may be not able to change the record path due to your computer’s security settings. Instead, add the camera as a trusted IE site.

4.1.9 Why can’t I find the multi-device settings and record icons?

Record and multi-device functions are controlled by ActiveX. These functions are not available in Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

insteon.com

INSTEON® Wireless IP Camera

4.1.10 Why won’t my camera connect wirelessly?

If your camera cannot connect wirelessly after you enable the wireless settings, power cycle the camera by unplugging the power cable and plugging it back in. Make sure your wireless settings are correct and match your wireless router or access point.

4.1.11 Why can’t I see my other cameras in multi-device WAN?

If you want to view all the cameras on WAN, verify that each camera you added in the multi-device settings can be accessed using the DDNS name and port number. Make sure you use the DDNS domain name, not the camera’s LAN IP. See How to Add Cameras in WAN.

4.1.12 I only see a black screen or undefined characters when using remote login.

If you can remotely access the login page, this indicates that your DDNS settings are correct. If you are unable to see live video and/or undefined characters, this may be due to Internet speed issues or the camera using WiFi.

4.3 Port Forwarding Basics

A software port is a numbered connection that your network uses to provide or deny access to your home LAN (local area network) from a remote location. Port forwarding allows you to access your home LAN from any Internet connection.

IMPORTANT! Port forwarding setup varies based on the make and model of your router. These examples are provided to help you understand the port forwarding process , but see your router’s manual for device-specific port forwarding instructions.
