Add a Camera: P2P Access
Please be Aware:
1080p cameras employ a much improved P2P version and are not affected
When you connect to your INSTAR 720p camera via P2P, you will not be able to Adjust Video Settings (Bitrate, Contrast, Brightness, etc.) and Access Snapshots on your SD card (accessing Videos will work).
Add an INSTAR P2P IP Camera
Our HD camera line additionally allows you to add the camera by a so-called p2p (Point-to-Point) connection. To establish the p2p connection, choose to add a New p2p Camera, type in the camera's UID, which can be found on the sticker on the camera and the web user interface (720p / 1080p). Or use the QR code scanner to scan your camera's code. Please be aware that the QR code on the sticker contains your camera's default login. The QR code in the webUI (Network/P2P) is generated dynamically and will contain your UID as well as your personal camera login. If you change your camera´s administrator login or just activated the p2p service, you first have to restart your camera, before you can access it via your UID.

|UID||You can either search for P2P cameras on your local network (your smartphone has to be connected to your home router´s WiFi network!) or scan the QRcode from the P2P menu: (720p / 1080p - it will automatically fill out all the necessary information to add your camera! You can also write down your camera´s UID (User Identification) from the P2P menu and type it in by hand.|
