DIAGRAM C

  • After signing in to your EZ Cam you will need to go to Administrator option and it will display a screen similar to Diagram C (above). 

 

  • Select Alias Settings – this is where you will name your EZ Cam (exmpl: Front Patio)

 

  •  Date & Time Settings – choose your correct time zone and select how you would like your EZ Cam to sync it’s clock.

 

  • User Settings – this is where you will add user names and passwords for any type of group you would want someone to gain access to on your EZ Cam. You will also “Browse” to create a file folder to send your EZ Cam recording to. Make note of the path and file folder you create so that you can find and review your recorded video.

 

  • Multiple-Device Settings – the Device List in Lan srceen will show other available cameras that you may add. Just click on the 2nd Device, and so on to add your other cameras. Press the “submit” button at the botton after you have added your devices. (Note: to learn more about Http Port Settings, please see the Router Help section with-in these EZ – FAQ’s)

 

  • Basic Network Settings – this is where you can select to obtain your camera’s IP address from the DHCP Server (your Router) or set a static IP address (which I recommend when using multiple EZ Cameras together). You can also assign your Ez Cam a port number here  (Note: to learn more about Http Port Settings, please see the Router Help section with-in these EZ – FAQ’s). Remember to press “Submit” button after making any changes.

    PORT FORWARDING – Guide

    On May 23, 2010, in HOW TO Set-Up Your Router, by tcecil
    0

    This guide will show you how to forward ranges of ports on the Linksys Cable/DSL Router with the newer versions of the firmware (1.3x).

    Only the newer versions of the firmware support port ranging. Older firmware support only single port numbers, not port ranging. The router information says that you cannot have port forwarding enabled if you have DHCP enabled on the router. This is NOT correct.

    You CAN have both port forwarding AND DHCP active if you take the proper precautions. You need to create a network that is half static, and half dynamic. You must assign your server machine a static LAN IP address. The rest of your computers on your network can have dynamic LAN IP addresses assigned from the Linksys router.

    You must make sure that the range of IP numbers that the Linksys router assigns does not include the static IP address you gave your server. For example, if you gave your server the IP number 192.168.1.20, then you can tell your Linksys router to assign IP’s from the range of 192.168.1.100 –> 192.168.1.200.

    Basically, you don’t want the static IP of your server to be included in the range of IP’s your router will be handing out to the rest of your computers. This holds true for any home router. 

    To log onto your Linksys router, type in “192.168.1.1″ into your web browser. You’ll see the following prompt asking for the username and password. This is the first page you’ll see when you log onto your linksys router.

    Click on the orange tab labeled “Advanced”.

    Click on the orange tab labeled “Forwarding”.

    In the gray box is the list of ports that are commonly used by servers. In our example here, we will forward ports 80 (for HTTP) and ports 25 (for SMTP mail).

    Why no FTP port? First of all, the less ports open, the more secure your home network is from the Internet. Second of all, I’m assuming you’ll be doing your FTP’ing from home on the LAN so these port forwarding won’t matter. You’ll still be able to FTP from inside your LAN network, just not from the WAN (Internet) But since it’s your own network, you’re free to open whichever ports you like!

     The computer (server) we want to forward the port to in our example has the IP number of “192.168.1.20″. If you want to specify only a single port number, enter the same number in both boxes.

    If you want to specify a range, enter the lower and upper numbers of the range in the two boxes. This is what it looks like when it’s done: Click on “Apply” at the bottom of the screen and you’re done!

    The changes take place immediately and you should be able to access your webserver by typing in the IP number of your DSL or Cable Modem (WAN IP number).

    Note: You can also access your server from the internal IP number (LAN), but this does not test if your port forwarding is working correctly or not.

    • Locate the mini CD-R software installation disc that was included inside the package with your EZ Cam. Insert the disc into the computer that will be running your camera monitoring software.

     

    •  Find the file on the disc that is titled IPCamSetup and run that setup file. Follow the on-screen installation instructions.

     

    • At the end of the installation it will tell you to remove ALL discs from your CD/DVD drives (including the IPCam installation disc). Then choose “Yes- restart my computer now”

     

    • When you computer boots back-up you should find an icon on your desktop that is labelled “IP Camera Tool”.

     

    • Before you open the camera tool use the included Cat 5 network cable and plug it into the back of your EZ Cam and the other end into an empty port on the back of your router. Then plug your EZ Cam into a near-by wall AC Outlet using the included power supply cord.

     

    • Now you are ready to use the IP Camera Tool software that you just installed. Open the IP Camera Tool on your computer and you will see a large white window screen. This tool will search for your EZ ip Cams automatically!

     

    • Click on your EZ Cam address that you see listed. Right-click on your choice and choose “Network Configuration”. Make sure your set your Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS Server addresses to match your routers addresses. If you have a linksys router you can compare these addresses by logging into your Linksys Router using this address in Internet Explorer: http://192.168.1.1

     

    • You can set your IP Address of your camera here also by either checking the box to obtain from DHCP Server or assigning your own “static address” (such as 192.168.1.115) I would recommend using a static address if you will be operating more than one EZ Cam.

     

    • Make a note of your EZ Cam’s IP Address and the HTTP Port Number (exmpl: 80)

     

    • Open Internet Explorer and type in the address of your EZ Cam followed by a colon symbol and your HTTP Port number (exmpl: http://192.168.1.xxx:80)

     

                                        DIAGRAM A

    • SUCCESS! You should see a “Sign in” screen. (see Diagram A) note: screens may vary from diagrams

     

    •  Your default Sign In, unless you have changed it, should be, User: admin and Password: (leave blank). You should see video feed from your camera now and the screen should look similar to Diagram B.

    There are many reasons why people install network cameras.

    First, the viewing console is built right into every individual camera, whether it be wired or wireless. The benefit of this is you can log into any ip network camera from an internet conenction from anywhere in the world and be able to instantly view the cameras video. You can even snap a shot or record it on your end!

    Wireless ip network cameras provide a great way to monitor your home or warehouse or small business because they are easier to set-up and install. You don’t have to drill into your walls or ceiling to run the network cables because it operates through a wireless router network with-in the home or building.

    These type of ip cameras are great for keeping an eye out on your children, pets, home entry way, business lobby, warehouse or anywhere you would like to monitor!
