Question

Can I use the AirSight on a Mac?

Answer

Yes. Please download this program if you have an AirSight (XX34A), AirSight Outdoor (XX36A), AirSight PTZ (XX40A), AirSight WideEye (XX41A), or AirSight WideEye Outdoor (XX42A):

Right-click on the detected camera address to open it in Safari.

An easy way to install and configure your AirSight SD Camera (XX39A) using an Apple Mac is to use IP Scanner 2.5. IP Scanner is a free tool by an independent publisher.

You can download it for free from this location:

IP Scanner

  • Install the program
  • Run the program and it automatically displays all the network ip devices running including the AirSight Camera. The AirSight will be listed as “unidentified hidden device”.
  • Copy down the AirSight`s IP address, then open Safari. Type in the IP address and hit Enter.

For iOS, there is a similar app, CamScan, which identifies cameras and lets you open them directly in Safari:
