SETTING UP YOUR COMPUTER

 

Your video surveillance system is complete and available online. There are 2 ways to connect using a Windows PC

1 - Microsoft Internet Explorer - with Active X settings enabled. (Be advised enabling Active X requires your Security Settings to be relaxed). In the URL section of Internet Explorer type the ip address given to you by the installer and hit ENTER. (login name is - admin - there is no password). If the camera system doesn't work using Internet Explorer, the video link below will provide info on settings that need to be changed to make Active X work for you...  (Google Chrome & Firefox will not work)

How to enable Active X using Internet Explorer... Click Here


2 - If you have difficulty with Internet Explorer, or do not wish to relax security settings, the manufacture offers their own viewing software. The download is free and can be found here...

The setup is fairly simple, and in most cases takes less than 5 minutes. Once you have downloaded & installed the software, the next step is to setup your account. Open the software...

There are two (2) types of accounts that should be given consideration...

  1. Internet Access  - Connecting to the camera system remotely from a location outside the home or office on a Laptop or Home PC using the Internet. The IP for this connection is address given to you by the installer.
  2. Local Access - Connecting to the camera system from inside the home or office using your local network. The IP for this connection is address given to you by the installer.

The MAC version is also free and can be downloaded here...
