This article applies for the IP Cameras models: XPY 500, XPY 510, XPY 520.
Here are the most common steps to install this IP Camera:
A. Installation in a network with the same address range (plug and play mode)
1. In order to be able to see the camera and configure it, you must first ensure that the IP camera is within your network address range.
Note: Nexxt Solutions routers are configured within such parameters. This means that if your internal network is configured with an IP address using 192.168.0.XXX with subnet mask 255.255.255.0, you will be able to access the camera directly by entering the default IP address into your web browser (Internet Explorer is the recommended browser).
2. Access the camera using the web interface by typing the device IP address: 192.168.0.239, and then hit enter.
B.Installation in a network with a different address range (manual setup)
1. If your internal network is configured based on a diferent IP address range, you must change the IP address of the camera to match your network range. In that case, use the BSearch_en.exe tool located on the supplied CD or on our Nexxt Solutions website.
2. Next, open BSearch_en.exe tool and click on the Search option located near the lower-left corner of the screen, or simply press F3 on your keyboard.
3. Under Local PC information, you will find your PC’s network parameters.
4. Under Device information, you will find the default values of the IP camera.
5. Under Device list, you will find all the IP cameras detected on your network.
6. In the example below, you will notice a PC connected to an internal network which is using an IP address 192.168.1.14, a Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, plus a Gateway and a DNS1 192.168.1.1.
7. In order for you to access the camera successfully in this scenario, the user change the IP address, Subnet mask, Gateway and DNS to match the network parameters of the local PC information or network.
8. Under Device information, change the IP address to 192.168.1.239, the Subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 and the Gateway and DNS, to 192.168.1.1.
Note: the IP address must fall within your network range, but outside your DHCP pool to avoid any IP address onflicts on your network. To view or change the Start and End DHCP address range on your network, refer to your router’s user manual for instructions.
9. Next, enter admin under Viewing Account and Viewing Password fields. Once done, you may click the Update button or press F5 on directly in your keyboard.
10. The tool will ask you to confirm the changes. Select Yes once prompted.
11. A notification that the camera has updated the values successfully will be displayed. The camera will be restarted as soon as you click OK on the message window, as shown below.
12. Once the camera has completely restarted, you can verify the values to ensure they are configured correctly. Click on Search or press F3 on your keyboard, in order to select the camera you have just programmed from the Device list. If all values contained in the Device information section are accurate, click on Browse or press F4 on your keyboard to access the camera directly using Internet Explorer.
NOTE: An alternate configuration method is accomplished using the Set IP automatically option, under the IP config menu. If you choose this option, your router will assign an IP address automatically using its DHCP address range pool. This type of configuration is normally not recommended, since the IP address will change every time the lease time has expired for that specific address under the DHCP server. This means you must use the search tool every time to determine the new IP address once expired.
13.In this step, the Log in window will appear on the screen. By default, the administrator’s username and the password is admin. When done, click OK to continue.
14. Once the main login interface appears, click on Sign in right below the ActiveX Mode (For IE Browser) option. The main user interface provides access to controls and the configuration parameters of the camera based on the privileges assigned to each particular user.
