WL-5420CAM User’s Manual 3 1 INTRODUCTION Thank you for purchasing MPEG4 Internet Camera, a standalone system that can be connected directly to an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet, and also supported by the wireless transmission based on the IEEE 802.11g standard*. With support for latest MPEG4 technology, you can record streaming video that utilizes high quality MPEG4 images to your hard drive, enable motion detection and setup automated email alerts for security. The built-in microphone provides you with the audio function, allowing you to “watch” and “listen” from the camera. Compared to the conventional PC Camera, the camera features a built-in CPU and web-based solutions that can provide a cost- effective solution to transmit the real-time high-quality video images and sounds synchronously for monitoring. The camera can be managed remotely, so that you can use a web browser to access and control it from any notebook/desktop PC over the Intranet or Internet. The simple installation procedures and web-based interface allow you to integrate it into your network easily. With comprehensive applications supported, the Internet camera is your best solution for remote monitor, high quality, and high performance video images. 4 Features and Benefits Simple To Use The MPEG4 Internet Camera is a standalone system with built-in CPU, no special hardware (such as a PC frame capture card) or software required. The camera supports DirectX 9.0; therefore, the only requirement you need is the web browser software such as Internet Explorer 5.0 or above. Once you have a valid IP Address, just connect it and you can view the picture and receive sound from your camera. In addition, the camera’s stand allows you to adjust the camera for optimal viewing angle. Support Variety of Platforms The camera supports TCP/IP networking, SMTP e-mail, HTTP and other Internet related protocols. It can be utilized in a mixed operating system environment, including Windows 98SE/ME/ 2000/XP. Moreover, it can be integrated easily into other www/ Intranet applications. Web Configuration Applying a standard web browser, the administrator can configure and manage the camera directly from its own web page via the Intranet or Internet. Up to 64 users name and password are permitted with privilege setting controlled by the administrator. WL-5420CAM User’s Manual 5 Remote Utility The powerful IPView Pro application assigns the administrator with a pre-defined user ID and password, allowing the administrator to modify the camera settings from the remote site via Intranet or Internet. When new firmware is available, you can also upgrade remotely over the network for added convenience. Users are also allowed to monitor the image, and take snapshots. Broad Range of Applications With today’s high-speed Internet services, the camera can provide the ideal solution for live video images over the Intranet or Internet for remote monitoring. The camera allows remote access from a web browser for live image viewing, and allows the administrator to manage and control the camera anywhere and anytime in the world. Apply the camera to monitor various objects and places such as homes, offices, banks, hospitals, child- care centers, amusement parks and other varieties of industrial and public monitoring. The camera can also be used for intruder detection; in addition, it can capture still images for archiving and many more applications. 6 Unpacking the Package Unpack the package and check all the items carefully.

Front Panel There are two LED indicators on the front panel of the camera: Power LED and Link LED. Link Power 1. Power LED The Power LED is positioned on the right side of the two LEDs. A steady light confirms that the camera is powered on. 2. Link LED The Link LED is positioned on the left side of the two LEDs. A steady light confirms that the camera has good connection to LAN connectivity. Dependent on the data traffic, the LED will begin to flash to indicate that the camera is receiving/sending data from/to the network. 3. Internal MIC The built-in omni-directional microphone allows the camera to receive sound and voice. WL-5420CAM User’s Manual 9 1 DC Power Connector 3 Network Cable Connector 2 Reset Button 1. DC Power Connector The DC power input connector is located on the camera’s rear panel, and is labeled DC5V 2.5A with a single jack socket to supply power to the camera. Power will be generated when the power supply is connected to a wall outlet. 2. Reset Button Factory Reset will be initiated when the reset button is pressed continuously for three seconds; meanwhile, the Link LED lights up or blinks. Release the reset button and the Link LED will turn off, indicating that the camera restores the factory default settings. Rear Panel 4 Antenna 10 When factory reset is completed, the configuration of camera will return to the defaults as: - IP address: 192.168.1.2 - Administrator’s login name: admin - Password: admin - Wireless status (for wireless model): disabled 3. Network Cable Connector The camera’s rear panel features an RJ-45 connector for connections to 10Base-T Ethernet cabling or 100Base-TX Fast Ethernet cabling (which should be Category 5 twisted-pair cable). The port supports the N-Way protocol and “AutoMDIX” function, allowing the camera to automatically detect or negotiate the transmission speed of the network. 4. Antenna (for wireless model) The rotatable external antenna allows you to adjust its position to obtain the maximum signal. WL-5420CAM User’s Manual 11 2 HARDWARE INSTALLATION Attaching the Camera to the Stand The MPEG4 Internet Camera comes with a camera stand (optional) with a swivel ball screw head that can be attached to the bottom screw hole of camera.

Attaching the Power Supply Attach the external power supply to the DC power input connector located on the rear panel of camera, and then connect it to your local power supply. TIP: You can confirm power source is supplied from the LED indicators label Power on the MPEG4 Internet Camera is illuminated. WL-5420CAM User’s Manual 13 3 SECURITY To ensure the highest security and prevent unauthorized usage of the camera the Administrator has the exclusive privilege to access the System Administration for settings and control requirements to allow users the level of entry and authorize the privileges for all users. The camera supports multi-level password protection and access to the camera is strictly restricted to defined the user who has a “User Name” and “User Password” that is assigned by the Administrator. The administrator can release a public user name and password so when remote users access the camera they will have the right to view the image transmitted by the camera. NOTE: The default settings of Administrator’s login name/password are admin/admin, which are easily to be known by unauthorized users. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to change the login name and password when you are the first time to use the camera. 14 4 APPLICATION OF THE CAMERA The camera can be applied in wide variety of applications.
