Log in (Sarix WebUI default credentials are username: admin | password: admin).
Select Reboot Camera from the System tab (may vary based on model/firmware revision).
note: Rebooting does not change the device settings.

Method 4: Reboot the camera using the Reset Button (R)
Each Sarix Camera/Encoder has a physical pinhole which can be depressed using a paperclip or small tool.
Press and release the Reset Button once to reboot the camera.
