  • FoMaKo PTZ IP Streaming cameras
  • Computer
  • Router or Switch
  • RJ45 Network cables

We high recommend you get a router into your PTZ live streaming system, even if the router doesn’t connect to internet. It will make your PTZ Live Streaming system become much more easier, because router will assign IP addresses for all devices in the local network.

Network Connection:

Please connect all devices to the router or switch by RJ45 network, and switch must connect to the same router.
If your computer uses WiFi signal, the WiFi signal must be come from the same router too.
(Tips: if your router or switch support PoE, your cameras don’t need to use power adapter)

Display Device Connection:

Use HDMI cable connect camera to HDMI TV or HDMI monitor, cameras’ video will show on screen.
(Notice: please don’t use HDMI connect camera to computer/laptop, because all HDMI ports on computer/laptop only have video out function, don’t have video in function)
 Press “menu” button on remote control ->Network , you will see network settings.
FoMaKo cameras opened DHCP by default, You can see the camera’s IP address which assigned by router.

Tips: when add cameras to your network successfully, recommend to disable DHCP for the cameras. Otherwise ,when your router, or camera rebooted, router will assign new ip address for the camera, then you need find the camera’s ip address again.

Two methods to disable camera’s DHCP:
Method One:
Go to camera’s menu -> Network settings -> DHCP: Off
Method Two:
Go to camera’s webpage -> Network Configure ->Ethernet -> don’t check DHCP

If you would like to keep DHCP on, please use FoMaKo IP search tool to search FoMaKo Cameras IP address, it is more faster than go to camera’s menu to check ip address.
