Resolution

The default IP address for Pelco IP cameras when a DHCP server is not present is 192.168.0.20 with a 24-bit subnet mask (255.255.255.0), which puts the device on the 192.168.0.0 subnetwork. If multiple cameras are connected on a network without a DHCP server, each camera will increment its IP address by one. The first camera will assign to IP address 192.168.0.20, the second camera connected would assign itself 192.168.0.21, the next one .22, etc. To see these cameras a PC with the same IP scheme will need to be used on the network. For example you can go into the PC that will be used and set its IP to 192.168.0.5.

The Grandeye Oncam EVO 360 series is: 192.168.0.200.

 

Note:

  • If the IP110 has an older software version installed (versions 01.00.0038 and older for IP110 and versions 01.00.0018 for IP3701H), the network will automatically cycle through the IP address range of 169.254.200.0 through 169.254.200.255, on netmask 255.255.255.0. The first available address located will be assigned to the IP110.
  • With the IME+ firmware v6.2.1.28, the default IP will be 169.254.x.x with subnet 255.255.0.0.
