I have one IPOD-TP2MPIR50-W IP camera and I’m trying to connect directly to it via PSS.  It is on the network and has an IP address and I can view it from my PC browser.  I added it to the PSS software as an IP Camera device but PSS can’t login.  I’ve tried a few various ports but haven’t had any luck.  I’m not even finding in the camera settings where the port is set.  It’s usually 37777.  Can this be done with this camera?  My final goal is to be able to set this camera up on a network and connect directly to it via the gDMSS phone app without using a DVR.  Thanks.

Hi, 

 

This camera is Onvif and not Private. Only the DVRs, NVRs, and EL series Cameras are capable of connecting to PSS. This is something is not supported on onvif cameras at the moment, maybe in the future. 

 

Thanks

Okay, thanks.  What must be done on this camera to allow the DVR to record by motion only?

Is there a way to reset this camera without getting into the web console?  I tried the reset button I found in the web console but it did not reset the IP address so I’m not sure it resets anything.

The 4 port POE NVR I’m trying to use with this camera doesn’t appear to see it.  It’s at least not adding it automatically like I’ve seen the IPOB-EL2MPIR50 camera do.  The POE ports don’t light up either so I don’t know whats going on.  How can I get this NVR to add the camera?

To enable motion then you need to login to the camera interface, then go to Alarm, click enable at the top then you need to set the area you want  motion to be enable. On the picture drag and release with the mouse button and you will see little squares in the picture, that represents the area that motion will be enable. set the schedule 00:00 – 23:59 and apply to all days. click set and save the settings.

Unfortunately that camera doesn’t have a reset button. When you “Restore” the camera all it will do is default its settings but the IP address will stay the same. This is done like in case there are 2 cameras on the network then if you reset them there will be a conflict with Ip addresses. Lastly in order to use these camera series using the POE build in in the NVR then you will need to change the cameras to the POE ip range the NVR has set. the default is 10.0.0.1 but you can change it to 192.168.2.1 for example and the only thing you need to change in the camera is the last 2 octets. I will recommend you to set each setting of the camera first then change the IP address when ready to connect it to the POE. Remember Onvif is limited, it doesn’t work like the EL cameras thats why they are less pricey but once they are set they worked good. 

 

Thanks

Thank you, this info helps.  I see where to set the IP in the camera and I see where to set the main IP for the NVR but where do you set the IP for the NVR that is dedicated to the camera side.  I’m assuming that the cameras will have a different IP network than the main network the NVR is connected to.

I’ve set the main IP address on the NVR to 10.100.1.90 which is my local network range with my router being 10.100.1.1.  I can see the NVR from the network.  I find a “Switch Settings” IP address in the NVR which is set to 192.168.1.1 with a gateway of 192.168.1.1.  The IP camera is set to 192.168.1.2.  I have the camera connected to port 1 on the NVR but the POE lights never come on and the camera is not receiving power.  What am I missing?

That option will be under network>network settings Switch Settings. In there you will need to change the IP that you want to have for that network POE switch. Notice that the numbers for the IP address and gateway are equal, this is because it needs to be point it to itself. So if your NVR is 192.168.1.108 the you need can leave the default IP switch settings in there then change your cameras to that range, or you can change it to something like shown in the attached picture then you need to change the cameras IP address to that range, like 192.168.2.xxx. photo.JPGImage Enlarger

Also, I took down the IPOB-EL2MPIR50 camera I have on another system and connected it to this NVR.  The NVR powered the camera and it came right up within 20 seconds or so and it got an IP of 192.168.1.65.

Well, the NVR has 4 POE ports so should the POE splitter be required?  My IPOB-EL2MPIR50 camera works fine with the NVR I just can’t get this IPOD-TP2MPIR50-W cam to work.

That piece is part of the camera, and it is required to power the camera using POE. The only TP series Cameras that are POE build it are the varifocal model, IPID-TP2MPIR50L2812 and IPOB-TP2MPIR150L2812. The fix lens ones need that poe Splitter. if you don’t want to use the splitter then it is required to power the camera using 12vdc.

The reason why is the EL series Cameras and all of our NVRs are propriety, therefore they will connect to the NVR choosing the Private protocol. Onvif cameras need to be addressed differently. They need to be added to be set prior to connect to the POE build in of the NVR. Make sure you have your address set in the switch POE first. Then make sure the onvif camera falls in to that range. For example if the range of the POE switch  is 192.168.2.1 then you can configure the camera to 192.168.2.200 and set it to static.

I did not get the splitters or realize that they were required.  I’m also not able to find the splitters on the web site.  Do the cameras come with the splitters?  If so I didn’t get them.

I was able to get the camera working after watching the video.  I had to power it via a separate 12V supply since I did not get the splitters.  My hangup was the port.  I found where port 80 was set in the camera so I was using that but I tried 8080 like the video shows and it worked.  If I can just get the splitters I should be okay.

Hi Jesus Ragusa,

The video you have provided is really very helpful. As I was facing a same kind of problem with the IP Cameras, it helped me a lot. Thank you so much for this useful video. Smile
