Remote monitoring

The sensor uses pyroelectric effect. Due to the effects of environment temperature, direct sunlight or air conditioner, it may detect the temperature differences by mistake, or the detection range may be shortened. It may take some time to transfer images depending on the network condition. 1 lx is the brightness about 2.5 m (8.2 feet) away from auxiliary fluorescent light. Color night view mode slows down the frame rate, and images may blur when viewing a moving object or using the pan/tilt operation.

Operating Instructions

Easy installation using UPnPTM (Universal Plug and Play) When connecting the camera with a UPnPTM enabled router, the camera automatically configures its network settings. *

Some UPnPTM enabled routers cannot configure the camera automatically. In this case, the router needs to be configured manually. Ask the router manufacturer how to configure it. See Panasonic Network Camera support website at http://panasonic.co.jp/pcc/products/en/netwkcam/ for more information.

Supporting Viewnetcam.com service Viewnetcam.com service allows you to access the camera over the Internet with your favorite domain name (e.g. bob.viewnetcam.com) instead of a global IP address. *

Viewnetcam.com service is the service for Panasonic Network Camera. See Viewnetcam.com website (http://www.viewnetcam.com) for more information.

Operating Instructions



• • • • •

When viewing video (Motion JPEG), we recommend using an Ethernet® switching hub instead of the repeater hub to prevent degradation in video display. Due to the network congestion or the number of accesses, the refresh interval may slow down. When the refresh interval is slow, restrict the bandwidth on the Network page (see page 32). The refresh interval may be improved. If the video (Motion JPEG) display is limited (see page 48), the video will be changed to refreshing still images. To reduce the data traffic, the video (Motion JPEG) can be automatically changed to refreshing still images (see page 48). When viewing 4 cameras on the Multi-Camera page, you may need 3 to 4 Mbps bandwidth. If the bandwidth is not enough, the refresh interval may slow down.

When the image is not displayed on the Multi-Camera page •

• •

Confirm that the Internet IP address is specified for each camera and that each camera is connected to the Internet. For Internet access, local IP addresses (192.168.xxx.xxx) cannot be used. Confirm the settings on the Multi-Camera Setup page (see page 51). Confirm that the web browser is not accessing the proxy server (see page 98).

How to save a still image to your PC On the Single Camera or Multi-Camera page • A still image can be saved using the capture image button (see page 14). On the Buffered Image page • A still image can be saved on the Buffered Image page, if you are not playing images on it. Put the cursor on the image, and right-click it.

Connecting the Camera to Your Network

The Network page offers three options to configure the camera. • [Automatic Setup] automatically assigns an unused IP address to the camera, and uses UPnPTM to configure your router. • [Static] allows the user to use a specific IP address. • [DHCP] is offered for ISPs who require this option.

1. Click [Network] on the Setup page. 2. Select a connection mode.

Normally sets Automatic Setup. Uses a static IP address. Uses ISP DHCP server function. •

Each page is displayed (see page 29—page 30).

3. Enter each parameter in the proper data field. Automatic Setup The camera automatically obtains the network settings (subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server address) utilizing a DHCP feature on the router. The camera also automatically searches the unused IP address on your network. If you select [Yes] at the Allow Access from the Internet, the camera automatically enables port forwarding by using UPnPTM. In this case, the camera automatically searches the unused port number on your network in the order of 80 and from 50000 to 50050.

The authentication window is displayed, and allows the registered users to access the camera. Notes • If you access the camera for the first time, the window to set administrator user name and password is displayed. Make a note of the user name and password so that you will not forget them. • The user name and password should be secured at your own responsibility. Pay attention to the following points. • Set the user name and password as many characters as possible. • Change the password regularly. • Setting [Permit access from guest users] (permitting access without a User Name or Password) at General Authentication risks the images being viewed by third parties. Control the contents of the images accordingly. IMPORTANT • It is important to limit access to the camera by use of a unique User Name and a secret Password. Because the camera is accessed through the Internet it is possible that the camera could be accessed by unknown individuals, including those who are commonly known as "hackers," to whom you do not want to allow access. The use of a unique User Name and a Password known only to you will help insure that only authorized individuals are given access to the camera. You have the option of proceeding without a User Name and Password, but it is strongly recommended that you utilize these protections.

Setting Sensor deactivation time

Description •

Set the length of time during which the sensor cannot be triggered after saving images temporarily or transmitting them. This function is recommended to use not to send too many E-mails to a mobile phone.

Note The internal memory cannot buffer images during Sensor deactivation time. Because of this, images taken before detection are not saved in internal memory, and so cannot be received. Depending on the settings for image buffer/ transfer, even if it is set to, for example, take "1 image per second, and store 10 images, before detection", because the images are not stored in internal memory, if the sensor detects something directly after the end of Sensor deactivation time, the images may not be saved. Ten seconds after the end of Sensor deactivation time, images can be received as specified in the settings.
