Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

  • Sarix Enhanced Plus (Gen 2)
    • IME129, IME122, IME222, IME229, IME322, IME329
    • Firmware version 6.2.1.28

Cause

The Sarix Enhanced Plus - second generation IP camera currently is not using the standard Pelco default IP address of 192.168.0.20.

Resolution

The camera will request DHCP first but if not offered an IP address will default to a 169.254.x.y with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 

169.254.x.y/16

Message from the installation manual:

If the camera is not connected to a DHCP server but DHCP is set to On, the default IP address on
subnet mask 255.255.0.0 is automatically assigned as 169.254.x.y where x and y will take a value
from 0 to 255 randomly. Please note cameras under same subnet will not be assigned to same IP
address to avoid IP conflict.
 

 As of  909/07/2016 Currently in the Operations Manual it is incorrect for 192.168.0.20 the camera will default to 169.254.x.y
