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

  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.

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 camera 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.
