Tips for using the 68A11-1 IP Minidome Camera with the Omnitouch7 and Snaplink Apps

1.       After discovering the camera(s) in Device Search, each camera must be assigned a static IP address on the home network on the System page under Network >> Basic.

2.       Notice that the MJPEG over HTTP port is 8008. If access to the cameras on the local network only is desired, the port may be left at 8008 for all 68A11-1 cameras. If remote access to the cameras is desired, for example, in a Snaplink application, set a unique port for each camera, i.e. ,8009, 8010, etc. Remember to save all changes using the proper Save box on the page.

3.       For local access to the cameras, in PCAccess >> Extended Setup, add and name your cameras. Then for each camera:

4.       Set the Type as HAI Camera (68A11-1)

5.       Enter the Address/URL for each camera – IP address followed by a colon and the port number (8008 unless changed). So for three cameras, with separate port numbers, the IP addresses would be similar to http://192.168.1.101:8008, http://192.168.1.102:8009, and http://192.168.1.103:8010 .

6.       For all cameras: Number = One, FPS = One, Quality= Low, Resolution = 320x240 . Do not enter a User Name or Password

7.       For remote access to the cameras, in PCAccess >> Extended Setup, again add and name the cameras, typically identifying it for remote access

8.       Setup for each camera will be identical to steps 4,5, and 6 except that in step 5, instead of using the local (LAN) IP address, you must use a WAN static IP address or DNS name and the port numbers. For example, if using a DNS name such as myhouse.mydns.com, then the Address/URL for the cameras would appear as http://myhouse.mydns.com:8008, http:// myhouse.mydns.com:8009, and http://myhouse.mydns.com:8010 .

9.       Write Extended Setup to the controller, reboot the Omnitouch 7 screens and in the Snaplink apps, retrieve setup or synchronize, depending on the app.

10.   In your router, the MJPEG over HTTP ports must be forwarded to the cameras’ local IP addresses, i.e. , 8008 to 192.168.1.101, 8009 to 192.168.1.102, etc. See your router’s port forwarding instructions or check with your router manufacturer or network expert.

Note 1 – some routers have the ability to use the static WAN IP address or DNS name for both local and remote access. Check with your router manufacturer or network expert

Note 2 – when the cameras are set up properly, on a local PC, you should be able to enter the local address, exactly as shown in PCAccess, in a browser and go directly to the camera’s raw video stream. On a PC outside the local network, you would use the address setup for remote access for each camera.
