Manual Installation with ARP/Ping

The device can alternatively be installed using the ARP and Ping commands.
1. Acquire an unused IP address for the camera. This IP address must be on the same subnet as your computer.
2. Locate the serial number (S/N) on the camera’s rear label.
3. From a computer on your network, open a Command Prompt (in Windows: from the Start menu, select Run... and type cmd in the field. Click OK).
4. As appropriate for your operating system, enter the following commands:
Windows syntax: Windows example:
arp -s <IP Address> <Serial Number>
ping -l 408 -t <IP Address>

UNIX/Linux/Mac syntax: UNIX/Linux/Mac example:
arp -s <IP Address> <Serial Number> temp
ping -s 408 <IP Address>
5. Check that the network cable is connected. Start/restart the camera by disconnecting and reconnecting the power cable.
6. Close the Command prompt when you see ‘Reply from ...’
7. The IP address has been set when the Power indicator is permanently lit and the Network indicator flashes intermittently.
8. Start your browser, enter the IP address of the camera in the Location/Address field and press Enter on your keyboard.


The firmware upgrade may take up to ten minutes to finish and must not be interrupted.

About Network Camera Firmware:

Updating to a newer firmware version than the one already installed on your network camera can improve the device’s overall performance and stability, resolve various issues, and add support for newly developed features or enhance existing ones.

On the other hand, downgrading the camera’s firmware can recover its functionality in the unlikely event the currently installed version is faulty, or the device’s performance dropped after an upgrade. However, bear in mind that applying an earlier build might not always be possible.

Changing the camera’s firmware must be performed when the new release resolves an issue that your device has encountered or adds a new feature (or enhances an existing one) that could prove useful to you.

As for the installation method, the steps vary depending on the model you own, but basically, you must connect your camera via an Ethernet cable (username and password required), and use the downloadable file in the Firmware Update section to upgrade your device. Make sure you do not interrupt the installation process.

However, make sure you carefully read and understand the installation steps so that you don’t end up with a broken device. This process isn’t intended to be destructive, but still, it’s best to save all configurations before applying a different firmware.

That being said, if you consider that this firmware improves your device in any way, then hit the download button and get the desired version; if not, check our website as often as possible so that you don’t miss the update that will boost your camera’s performance. 

  It is highly recommended to always use the most recent driver version available.

Try to set a system restore point before installing a device driver. This will help if you installed an incorrect or mismatched driver. Problems can arise when your hardware device is too old or not supported any longer.
