NEW XX52A AirSight Outdoor WideEye P2P IP Camera Quick Installation Guide (Using IE Browser)


Introduction

You can access your camera's live video feed from a web browser on your computer by following these steps.


Setup instructions for your tablet or smartphone can be found here.


Step 1: Hardware Installation

You need to set up your camera using a network cable (wired) first before you attempt to use it wirelessly. It is recommended that you set the camera up indoors first, before routing the cables through an external wall to mount it outdoors.

  1. Install the Wi-Fi antenna.
  2. Plug the power adapter into the camera and into an AC outlet.
  3. Plug one end of the network cable into the camera, and the other end into your router/switch.

If there is still no live video after you run ActiveX, please try to enable the ActiveX options of IE security settings, please do the follow steps:

  1. Close your computer’s Firewall.
  2. Change the ActiveX settings, “IE” browser > “Tool” > “Internet Options” > “Security”> “Custom Level” > “ActiveX control and Plug-ins”, all the ActiveX options should be set to be “Enable”: Especially:
    Enable: Download unsigned ActiveX controls
    Enable: Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe

In Addition: you can also click “start” select “Internet Explorer”, choose “Internet attributes “ to enter, or via “Control Panel” “Internet Explorer”, enter for Security settings. If there is still no image, please close your anti-virus software, and then try steps 1 & 2 again.

Step 4: How to use your camera Wirelessly

You should set up your camera using a network cable (wired) first before you attempt to use it wirelessly. (See Hardware Installation above).

  1. Make sure your router is a wireless router.
  2. Make sure the Wi-Fi antenna is installed on the camera.
  3. Determine if your router uses encryption, (see your router’s owner’s manual for how to do this), if it uses encryption, note the share key.
  4. Login to the camera using the IP Camera Tool, like you did when setting up with a network cable.
  5. When you see the screen below, click “Network” then ”Wireless Lan Settings” then click on “Scan”, wait and then click it again, when you see your SSID (network name) in the Wireless LAN settings box, click on it.
  6. If there is no encryption, just click “Submit”, if there is encryption, input the share key, then click “Submit”.
  7. Unplug the network cable and wait about 30 seconds while the camera reboots.
