This article is useful to those of you who are not happy with audio/video settings of your camera, mostly video quality (resolution, frame-rate, compression level, ...) or camera credentials.
To find a camera web administration:
- Have your 💻 or 📱 on the same network (router or WiFi access point) as your camera is.
- Note your camera's MAC address - it's not an absolute must, but if you have more devices on your network, finding the camera will be easier.
- Find the camera's IP address - please choose any option fitting you the best:
a) sing-in to your router/access-point and find the camera's IP address in a DHCP server, or
b) 🔍 scan your network (choose any of these options):
Windows: Use Angry IP scanner or Advanced IP Scanner
- Geeks can run Terminal app and run “arp -a | grep MAC” where MAC is the cam's MAC address
- Otherwise 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).
- Congrats! That was the hardest part! 🎉
- Open an internet browser and enter IP address of the camera.
- Sign-in to the camera - if you hadn't changed default credentials, you can find them in the camera's manual 📖.
- Change whatever you need to change, save your changes and enjoy!
