The Cisco Video Surveillance IP Camera package includes the following items:
3 Installing the IP Camera
To install the IP camera, follow these steps:
Step 1 Attach the included alignment sticker to the ceiling or wall.
Step 2 Using the circle marks on the sticker, drill at least two pilot holes symmetrically on each side (four holes total) into the ceiling or wall. Then hammer the included wall anchors into the holes.
Step 3 Secure the mounting plate to the ceiling or wall with four included screws.
Step 4 Do one of the following:
•Cut out a section of the ceiling or wall that corresponds to the triangular cutout on the alignment sticker, and feed cables through a ceiling or wall.
•Use a screwdriver to remove the cutout on the side of the conduit base, connect a cable conduit, and feed the cables through the side of the conduit base.
Step 5 Drill a hole on the rubber seal plug and insert an Ethernet cable (without a connector) through the opening. Strip about 1/2 inch (12 mm) of the sheath from the cable and crimp an RJ45 connector to the cable. When done, connect the cable to the camera Ethernet RJ45 socket.
Step 6 (Optional) Using the waterproof connector assembly, install an external power cable and/or I/O cables for external devices and connect to the GPIO terminal block.
Step 7 Use the included L-type wrench to secure the conduit base to the mounting plate with the three included screws.
Step 8 (Optional) Use mini cable with BNC connector to temporarily attach an NTSC or PAL compliant analog video display device to the analog video out port on the rear of the IP camera.
Step 9 While viewing video from the IP camera, adjust the 3-axis field of view.
Step 10 (Optional) If the IP camera is installed in a high humidity environment, remove the wrapper from the included silica gel pack and place the pack with the camera inside the VR housing. Ensure that the silica gel pack does not obstruct the IP camera field of view.
Step 11 Attach the dome cover to the camera and tighten the four dome cover screws to secure the dome cover to the camera.
Step 12 Use the IP camera user interface to adjust the focal length and zoom factor.
4 Accessing the IP Camera for the First Time
After you install the IP camera, you can access it by using a PC and configure basic settings. To do so, follow these steps from a PC that is on the same network as the IP camera and that is running Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit) or higher:
Step 1 Start Internet Explorer 8 (32-bit only) or later, enter HTTPS://ip_address in the Address field, then press Enter.
Replace ip_address with the IP address that the IP camera obtains through DHCP in your network. If the camera does not obtain this IP address after 90 seconds, enter 192.168.0.100.
The Login window appears.
Step 2 Enter the default login credentials:
The Initialization window appears.
Step 3 In the Password and Confirm Password fields in the admin row, enter a password for the IP camera administrator. Enter the same password in both fields. The password is case sensitive and can contain up to 8 letters, numbers, and special characters, but no spaces.
Step 4 In the Password and Conform Password fields in the root row, enter a password for accessing the IP camera through a SSH connection. Enter the same password in both fields. The password is case sensitive and can contain up to 8 letters, numbers, and special characters, but no spaces.
You use this password if you need to troubleshoot the IP camera through an SSH connection with the assistance of the Cisco Technical Assistance Center.
Step 5 In the HTTP area, click the HTTP radio button if you want to allow both HTTP and HTTPS connections to the IP camera.
The default setting is HTTPS, which allows only HTTPS (secure) connections to the IP camera.
Step 6 Click Apply and wait for the IP camera to reboot.
Step 7 After the IP camera reboots, start Internet Explorer, enter protocol://ip_address in the Address field, then press Enter.
Step 8 If you are prompted to install ActiveX controls, follow the on-screen prompts to do so. ActiveX is required to view video from the IP camera.
The Home window appears. You can now click View Video to view live video, click Setup to configure the IP camera, or click Logout to exit
