Device Utility for Pelco IP Devices

C3437M-B (2/09)

Welcome

This manual explains how to download and use Pelco’s Device Utility software. Use this software to perform the following functions:

• Locate the IP address of the Pelco IP device.

• Identify the MAC address of the Pelco IP device.

• Perform system upgrades to the Pelco IP device.

The Pelco Device Utility software is accessible on the resource disc shipped with the product or at www.pelco.com/software/downloads/.

NOTES:

• Pelco recommends connecting the camera to a network that uses a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server to address devices.

• Do not use a hub in the network setup of the device.

• To secure access to the Pelco IP device, place the device behind a firewall when it is connected to a network.

• Pelco's IP cameras can also be used with an Endura ® system as an Endura Enabled device, Digital Sentry ® , or a third-party system with Pelco’s application programing interface (API). For detailed instructions on configuring the camera using one of these systems, refer to the manual shipped with the system.

• For a list of compatible API partners go to xdn.pelco.com and register as a new user by following the on-screen instructions.

• Network and processor bandwidth limitations may cause the video stream to pause or appear pixilated when an increased number of web-interface users connect to the device. Decrease the images per second (ips) of the Web-interface video streams to compensate for network/processor limitations.
