As with the other Hikvision cameras I’ve reviewed, the IP address comes from the factory set to 184.108.40.206.They include a program on a CD called SADP that you run, finds the cameras and you can change the IP address to one that’s appropriate for your home network.Here’s an inside look at the camera, you can see the extra pigtail here for the alarm input as well as the 2 way audio wires.To get to the zoom and focus wands, remove the black plastic cover and tilt the lens down and the wands are in the back, easy to reach and adjust.The IR LEDs are not partially blocked like they are on the mini dome, something that required a larger form factor to accomplish. This is what the web interface looks like when you first log in.
I turned off camera name (Display Name) for my purposes but you here you can put the location name, like Driveway, Backyard, Office, etc.
This is a typical dome with a pigtail with a power and Ethernet jack that comes out the back of the camera plus it has a separate pigtail for alarm and audio.
To make the install clean, you’ll need to drill a whole about 1″ diameter to slip the jack inside.
For example, if you chose 1080P, then you have to click on 16:9, if you chose 3MP mode, then click on 4:3. What’ different here than the previously reviewed Hikvision cameras are the audio controls at the bottom.
The speaker volume control in the lower left, the microphone on/off icon in the lower right.Another screen I use is the OSD settings under Advanced Configuration / Image.
