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.

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).

  • Make sure your router is a wireless router.
  • Make sure the Wi-Fi antenna is installed on the camera.
  • 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.
  • Login to the camera using the SearchIPCam Tool, like you did when setting up with a network cable.
  • Click the SETTINGS icon at the top of the screen: Xx70asettings.png

When you see the screen below:

  1. Choose the "Network Settings” menu
  2. Click "Wireless Settings" menu
  3. Click on “Search” button
  4. Once your WiFi Network Name (SSID) populates in the Wireless LAN box, click on it.
  5. Ensure the NETWORK TYPE, SAFE MODE, and ENCRYPTION type match what is listed above.
  6. Enter your WiFi Network Password or Share Key
  7. Click SAVE

Wait for your camera to FULLY REBOOT - Once it is done center itself - UNPLUG THE POWER CABLE FIRST - then disconnect the network cable and plug the power back in.
