How to Find / Configure IP Camera using

SVTools

Using the SVTools Program, you can find IP Cameras on your network. This may be required for cameras that are not showing up on your network or for easy setup for an individual camera. You can download the tool from our website here.

https://www.cctvsecuritypros.com/surevision-downloads

.

.

To utilize the tool, you first must plug your cameras into a POE Switch that is on the Network or if the cameras on the NVR plug your into a POE port on the NVR with the cameras.

In the camera list you should be able to identify the camera via the MAC Address if the camera has not been mounted. The Mac Address can be found on the sticker of the camera. A mac Address is identified by its 6 segmented Letters and Numbers. It will usually look something like this “a1:b2:c3:d4:e5:f6”.

Please note that the IP Address of the camera may be different than the one in the IPC Manual depending on if it is connected to a network with DHCP.

If you cannot connect to the camera you may need to set your adapter settings on your computer to match the IP of the camera. i.e. if the camera is 192.168.1.15 set the IP of the computer to 192.168.1.2 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0

For more information on how to change your adapter settings on your computer refer to the Microsoft Support page linked below.
