XX70A: AirSight Outdoor PTZ P2P HD IP Camera with One Button Setup - Quick Installation Guide (Using Safari Browser)



Introduction

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


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


Step 1: Hardware Installation

We strongly recommend setting up your camera wirelessly via the APP first using the One Button Setup feature.

If you prefer to instead setup from your MAC you will need to use a network cable (wired) first before you attempt to use it wirelessly.

  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.
