How do I log into my IP camera via an Internet Explorer browser?


To log into your camera directly via an Internet Explorer browser:

  • Run the IP Camera Search tool - IPCamera.exe found on your camera's installation CD.

  • Double click on your camera's IP address to log into your camera via an Internet Explorer browser

If the web interface opens in a different browser, like Firefox or Chrome, simply COPY / PASTE the link in the address bar into an Internet Explorer browser.
