The Reset button is recessed. Using a small tool, such as a paper clip, press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds to restore the camera to factory default settings.

The web interface also provides the option to RESET the camera defaults. WARNING: This process cannot be undone; all user and custom settings will be lost.

  1. Place your mouse pointer over the Systems tab.
  2. Select General Settings from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click the Restore all Camera Defaults button to restore the camera's factory default settings.

NOTE: If the device is not connected to a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) network, the IP address settings for the device will be lost and the server will not recognize the device. The default for the device IP address is DHCP On.
