IP CAMERA QUICKSTART GUIDE

STEP 1: WIRING GUIDE

ALWAYS BENCH TEST BEFORE INSTALLING!!: It is highly recommended that you temporarily wire your system in a bench-tested controlled environment and run through the quickstart guide before you install your cameras in their permanent location. Once you have confirmed that you have the basic setup complete, then you can proceed to install the cameras in their permanent location.

How will you be hooking this up? Please select an option below:

1、DIRECTLY TO THE BACK OF A TIANDY POE NVR

If you choose this wiring option, then your entire setup is complete.

2、DIRECTLY TO A SEPERATE POE SWITCH THAT IS NOT BUILT INTO THE NVR

If you are installing more than one camera, please only plug-in and configure one camera at a time. Do not plug-in all cameras at once. Once you get one camera configured, then you can plug-in the next one to be configured.

STEP 2: ASSIGNING AN IP ADDRESS

If you are installing more than one camera, please only plug-in and configure one camera at a time. Do not plug-in all cameras at once. Once you get one camera configured, then you can plug-in the next one to be configured.

HOW TO ASSIGN AN IP ADDRESS USING A WINDOWS COMPUTER

First, you will need to download the following Windows tools to assist you with this step:

Net_Admin.exe – Network Camera Utility Tool.

Next, you need to make sure your camera’s IP address is set on the same subnet as your network:

○ Open the Net_Admin.exe and you should see a list of your cameras after they boot up (this could take up to 20 seconds).

11

○ Next, locate your new camera from the list

By default, the camera’s IP address will almost always be set to 192.168.1.2

12

If you want to change IP address. To achieve this, follow these steps carefully:

Manually set your camera’s IP address:

Make sure the DHCP box is unchecked.

Enter an IP Address that is not currently in use to avoid any IP conflicts. This number can be anything between 0-255.

Clicking on the camera, change  the  IP/mask/gateway  or DNS .   For example:

13

Clicking ChangeIP  and  Reboot

14

Clicking Refresh .  A few seconds, new IP  appear.
