When the IP address of an existing camera is not known there are a couple of methods for finding the camera to initiate a connection.
- All IP Cameras
- I need to connect to a camera
When The IP address of a Network Camera is unknown:
If the Camera is plugged into a network using a DHCP server; download the Pelco camera utilities: Device Utility and Endura Utility.
If the camera is assigned static or self assigned; the use of these query tools may not work based upon network infrastructure.
Find where the camera plugs into the network and direct connect a computer to the camera. If the camera receives POE from the network switch the use of a Sinlgle Channel POE Injecter may be required.
All Pelco cameras self assign: 192.168.0.20 subnet mask:255.255.255.0. Set the computer to: 192.168.0.10
