Purpose: Follow the steps to activate the IP camera on your DVR.
Before you start:
Before adding the camera, make sure the IP cameras to be added are already activated. Most of the cameras are already activated by default.
If the IP cameras are already activated, please go to Adding Online IP Cameras on Annke DVR to continue adding them to Annke DVR.
- Select the Add IP Camera option from the right-click menu in live view mode
or click Menu> Camera> Camera to enter the IP camera management interface.
Note: For the IP camera detected online in the same network segment, the Security status shows whether it is Active or Inactive.
- Click the inactive icon of the camera to enter the following interface to activate it.
Note: You can also select multiple cameras from the list and click the One-touch Activate to activate the cameras in batch.
- Set the password of the camera to activate it.
Use Admin & Password: when you check the checkbox, the camera (s) will be configured with the same admin password of the operating DVR.
Create New Password: If the admin password is not used, you must create the new password for the camera and confirm it.
We highly recommend you create a strong password of your own choosing.
We highly recommend you reset your password weekly or monthly regularly.
- Click OK to finish the activation of the IP camera. And the security status of the camera will be changed to Active.
