A. The WVC210 is an SMB solution Wireless Internet Camera. It gives the user the ability to view and have limited interaction with the camera over the Internet. This includes a new motorized lens to allow the user to move the camera view over great distances.
A. The camera is set to obtain an IP automatically by default. However, you can find the IP address displayed on the LED screen in the front of the camera.
A. In an Internet Explorer browser you must enter http://<ip address of the camera>:<Port number>, for example http://192.168.1.115:1024. The port is disabled by default but once it is enabled, this is the only way to access the camera's setup page.
A. The username is admin and the password is admin.
A. No, the WVC210 does not support PoE on its own.
A. There are 4 forms of DDNS supported: DynDNS, TZO, FreeDNS, and 3322.
A. Yes, the WVC210 has sound enabled by default and has a built-in mic located in the front of the camera. There is also an external mic plug located on the bottom of the unit.
A. The warranty period is 3 years.
A. The WVC54GC has four LEDs:
Power - Amber
The POWER LED lights up when the camera is powered on. It flashes for about 10-15 seconds while the camera is initializing.
Activity - Green
The ACTIVITY LED flashes when there is activity.
LAN - Green
The LAN LED lights up when there is a connection to a wired network. It flashes when data is transmitted to or received from the wired network.
WLAN - Green
The WLAN LED lights up when there is a connection to a wireless network. It flashes when data is transmitted to or received from the wireless network.
A. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA).
A. There is one Administrator username and password. There are also twenty configurable usernames/passwords with three different levels of User Rights available.
A. Any OS that can run the compatible browsers.
A. Internet Explorer 5 or later, and Safari.
A. Powercycle the WVC210. If the Ethernet cable is not plugged to the unit when it is powered on, then it assumes you wish it to be wireless and vice versa. Therefore, anytime you are switching between wired or wireless the WVC210 must be powered off and back on again.
Q. I changed the Video settings on my camera but the View Video does not seem to change. How can I resolve this?
A. First, try closing the browser and re-opening since the video must reconnect in order to make the necessary changes. If this does not work, try checking which Video settings that have been modified, by default the "View Video" tab displays the MJPEG settings not MPEG-4.
A. Locate the reset button on the bottom panel of the unit. Then use a paper clip or something similar to hold in the button for 30 seconds.
