Two years ago when I installed my NVR-ELM-8-POE-DH, I forgot to enable motion detect in some of the cameras ipod-el3mpir50. I tried hooking the camera up to poe switch and use ip detect tool but no luck. The NVR gives the cam 10.1.1.66 address. What do I have to do to use IE to see and setup the Cam and then hook it backup to the NVR.

Please detail the complete process. 

Makes my head spin.

Thanks

2 of 8 cams have normal motion detect. I need to enable motion detect on the other 6. NVR-ELM-8-POE-DH, ch8, alarm4, alarm out2, system version 3.200.0000.6R, build date 11/27/2014, web 3.1.0.5, SN XXXXXXXXXXX

The issue here is that the cameras on your NVR-ELM-8-POE-DH are isolated as the built-in PoE Switch will create its own network, this is done for security and bandwidth as all the bandwidth is kept away from your main network. The Solution is to obtain either a PoE switch and connect the cameras on your main network then access them on your computer keeping in mind that because the switch has a 10.x.x.x.x IP scheme you may need to change this to your current scheme which may well be 192.168.x.x.x. You can also power the camera with 12VDC and connect the RJ45 Connector to your main router then access the camera with your computer and a third solution is to disconnect one camera from the PoE switch and connect and ethernet cable from your computer to the PoE switch, set your IPV4 settings of your computers NIC to the same IP scheme making sure not to create an IP Conflic then scan using the Config Tool and make your changes using the IE browser. 

These steps can be done with the assistance of one of our Technicians, feel free to give us a call at 866 573-8878 option 3 or open a chat here “LIVE CHAT

Wow either way its a lot of work. I sure messed up by not enabling motion detect on initial setup.

I did hook up one camera to a poe switch. But could not detect the camera on my computer with ip cam detect tool. I don’t know how to change my computer nic to 10.1.1.xx. So the jist is. My computer is 192.168.x.x and the cameras are 10.x.x.x So you have to change the computer or the camera IP address to match.

Man there has to be an easier way. My NVR and cams are 2 years old. Is that how NEW NVR are done today. I mean is it easier to work with IP cams with a newr NVRs? Or is my system just old and difficult?  I just want plug and play!

I did click your link. I don’t want to make a crossover cable. 

Here’s what i intend to do. Plug one camera in the standalone POE switch. (not the nvr) That way it has power and is capable of being seen. Since the ip camera address is 10.x.x.x then I have to change my nic card to 10.x.x.y (with no ip conflict) So if this is the plan I need to know how to change my nic on my computer.

I just want a sure fire way to adjust IP cams if I have to do this again in the future.

You do not have to make a crossover cable that is only for accessing the recorder web interface if you do not have a monitor. Its the only way to do this change on your camera from old 2008 IP cameras to todays 2018 cameras. The built in PoE will isolate them.

In summary, I should be able to adjust the IP cameras from within the NVR POE software. If that’s not possible then the software engineers need to work on that and then IP cameras would be user friendly. This puzzles me that I can’t adjust my IP cameras from the NVR. Sure there are some adjustments from the NVR but I can’t turn on the Motion Detect on the cameras themselves from within the NVR. Yes you gave me a lot of solutions but I don’t know the minute details of what to do. Plus Edge needs a plugin update, chnage my NIC address, etc. And I don’t dare mess with the cameras cause I may not get them back to working order. I remember 3 years ago I spent a lot of time to get them up.

If I hook one camera straight to the router, will I be able to see and adjust the IP cam on my computer with the IP tool? Lets stick with one camera plugged into the router if that is easier.

Thanks

As I stated before this is something that we can assist you with remotely. All you need is a computer on the same network, an internet connection, a spare cat5 or cat6 cable to connect your computer to the PoE switch. Your System comes with a lifetime Technical Support, please take advantage of this. If you connect one camera to your router you will need to power it with 12vdc. If you do not have a cable going to the 12vdc input of your camera to a 12vdc power supply this is not something that will be time consuming. The easiest option is a laptop connected to your network wirelessly then connecting the LAN port of the laptop to one of the PoE ports of the recorder. The process should only take a few minutes to do, changing all of your cameras should only take a completed time of 10 minutes. 

 

The number to call is 866 573-8878 option 3 or open a chat here “LIVE CHAT“ we are here from Monday through Friday from 9am EST to 8PM EST a whole 11hrs!.

Its late at night. Could not call help desk.

Connected ip camera to separate POE switch.

Connected computer to same POE switch.

Connected internet to same POE switch. (all 3 are on the same POE switch from Trendnet) The NVR with 7 cameras is totally turned off.

Used two different IP tools to search for IP camera but it fails to find. What am I doing wrong. I rebooted router but still ip tools cant find the camera.

Camera should be 10.1.1.66

Computer is 192.168.0.4

I know I’m close…….
