Step 1: Make sure your PC or phone is on the same network (router or WiFi access point) as your camera is.
Step 2: Note your camera's MAC address (it's usually printed on the camera itself or its box). This is not an absolute must, however if there are more devices on your network, it will help you to easily identify your camera.
Step 3: Find the camera IP address - please choose any of the following options that is most convenient for you:
a) Sing-in to your router/access-point (see how) and find the camera's IP address in a DHCP server.
b) Scan your network (choose any of these options):
- Windows users: Use Angry IP scanner or Advanced IP Scanner
- Mac users: Option A: Run Terminal app and run “arp -a | grep MAC” where MAC is the cam's MAC address. Option B: Use app IP Network Scanner (free for up to 6 devices, for more devices you can use free Angry IP scanner).
- iOS: Purchase IP Network Scanner app ($19.90).
Step 4: Open any web browser and input the IP address into the address bar at the top of the screen and press "Enter/Return"
Step 5: Your browser will take you to the login page of your camera. Use your camera login and password. If you don't know your camera credentials and you never changed them, you will most likely have default settings. In such a case check default camera passwords directory.
