Why is there duplicate IP address in DS Quick Setup?

Issue

which ip camera should be select

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • Digital sentry
    • DS Quick Setup

Cause

DS Quick Setup detects all camera devices on the same network.

Resolution

DS Quick Setup will detect an IP camera as Pelco IP camera driver and ONVIF drivers both will have the same ip camera address.

  1. The Pelco IP camera drivers (recommended for pelco cameras)
  2. The ONVIF specification will ensure interoperability between products regardless of manufacturer. For more information on ONVIF click here

 

The reason this happens is both the cameras and the VMS software support the 3rd party driver 'ONVIF - Profile S'.

With Pelco IP cameras, ignore the ONVIF found devices and only select the cameras which show the correct model number.  ONVIF is generally used when adding 3rd party IP cameras.
