Secure the Access to your IP Camera

In order to access the user menu please click System in the web interface of your IP camera and then choose the sub menu Users as shown below. We always recommend that you to set a personal password after setting up your camera. This way you make sure no one can access the video stream besides the people you grand access to. The password should consist of BIG and small letters and numbers. Please make sure the password is not longer than 12 characters in case of the VGA cameras or 30 characters in case of a HD camera. Special characters are possible but please check the characters which are not supported. After submitting the set password will be sent to the camera. After that you can sign back in with your newly created password.
