Setup and Installation

 

To get your TV-IP422W setup on your network you have two options. The first is to connect it with a standard Cat5 cable and run the IPSetup utility on the included CD-ROM. This will find the camera and allow you to set an IP address that works on your network.

 

The other option is to use the Windows Wireless setup to create a USB key for easy wireless configuration.

 

I recommend using a wired setup due to is ease and stability.

After you have run the IPSetup utility and assigned an IP address you will need to open your favourite browser and log in to the Web Configuration for the TV-IP422W to finish the setup.

The Web Configuration utility opens up on the view screen as you can see there is a lot going on here, but we will cover all of that a little later; right now we need to get the TV-IP422W configured. In the view screen click Setup and you will be taken to the Basic Setup page.

On the Basic Setup page you have options for System Settings, Date and Time as well as User setup. The first thing you want to setup is the name of the TV-IP422W. As an option you can also list the location of the camera. The LED light controls are also on this page and allow you to turn them off during operation; this reduces the chance of someone noticing the TV-IP422W and might even make them think it is not running.

Just above the basic setup link is a button labelled Smart Wizard. Clicking this will take you through the whole setup process with the exception of setting the date and time. The Setup Wizard even prompts you to change the Admin password.
