From the menu on the left choose the option ''my IP-cameras''.
Using the + sign you can add a camera or a sequence of cameras to NetcamViewer Monitor.

For every additional camera you add a new tile becomes visible which contains mulitple functions:

  • After a succesful connection to the camera the top half shows a still image from the camera.
  • This image contains a start icon to show this camera on the display.
  • When the camera is already displayed, the stop icon will be shown. In this way it is also immediately clear which camera is currently displayed on the screen.
  • The bottom half of the tile shows the name of the camera.
  • At the bottom of the tile the delete icon and the settings icon are shown. These are used to remove the camera from NetcamViewer Monitor or to change the settings.

You can reset NetcamViewer Monitor to the original factory default settings without username and password by entering the URL shown below in a web browser that is able to acces the unit. You need to disconnect the HDMI cable from the unit and NetcamViewer Monitor must be configured for display via HDMI.

http://[IP-ADRESS]/commands/hard-reset

Replace [IP-ADDRESS] with the IP address or host name of your NetcamViewer Monitor.

When succesful, NetcamViewer Monitor will restart and display its IP address on the monitor.

NOTE: YOU WILL LOSE ALL SETTINGS. THIS CANNOT BE UNDONE.

That is possible, you can do this by following these steps:

  1. From the menu on the left choose the option ''settings''.
  2. At the bottom of the page, under the heading ''System'', you will find the manual IP settings.
  3. When you activate this you will find the following options where you can manually configure the IP-settings:

The default configuration for NetcamViewer Monitor is to receive its IP settings via DHCP.
You can always find the IP address and the host name where you can reach the unit on the monitor screen when no camera is being displayed.

If you prefer to give NetcamViewer Monitor a fixed IP address then you can enable this and enter the appropriate details and then click okay.

The easiest way to display images via NetcamViewer Monitor is to choose the camera brand and enter the IP address, username and password.

If this does not lead to the desired result, the following step-by-step plan can be used:

 

  1. Make sure that the camera's password does not contain any special characters. Some characters may cause confusion resulting in no image being retrieved.

 

  1. Check whether you can log in directly to the camera via the web browser with the specified username and password.

 

  1. If the camera supports the Onvif protocol, see how to activate it on the camera. Sometimes a separate Onvif user has to be created. This is brand dependent. You can then select “Onvif” in the NetcamViewer Monitor under “brand”.

 

  1. It is also possible to directly enter an RTSP URL. This can be done in the advanced settings when adding a camera.
  • Find the camera's RTSP path on this site:

                https://www.ispyconnect.com/cameras

  • For RTSP path, enter the entire image path: rtsp://<username>:<password>@<ipad_camera>:<rtsp port>/<image_path_to_the_stream>

In doing so, omit the various variables and the ">".

Example: rtsp://root:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.:554/video.h264

 

  • The image path can also be tested in the program VLC (https://www.videolan.org/vlc/). If the stream from the camera doesn't play in there, it won't work in NetcamViewer Monitor either.

 

  • If the camera is not in the same network, both the HTTP port (usually 80, TCP) and the RTSP port (usually 554, TCP and UDP) in the router of the Internet connection at the camera must be forwarded to the camera. More info at https://portforward.com

 

  • Some cameras support multiple channels, which must be configured in the camera. The NetcamViewer Monitor only supports H264 with a maximum resolution of FullHD (1920x1080) in single-view. For multi-view display, choose a lower resolution depending on the desired number of cameras in view (1/2 in dual and quad view and 1/3 in 6 or 9 view).

 

  • NetcamViewer Monitor only supports MJPEG and H264 streams. Check if the camera also supports this.

 

  • In order to display an image from the camera in the overview, the JPEG path can also be entered as an extra. This can be searched and constructed in the same way. The JPEG path can be tested in a web browser.
