The majority of installation are 4G ready and enabled. However, one great feature of IP ( Internet Protocol ) based Time-Lapse is the option to use an available network on site. This will reduce some expenditure and removes the montly SIM costs. It also opens up the advantage to monitor remotely through a remote live video feed.
It does come with some limitation as Burgess Technologies does not have a pre-configured path into the camera. This is useful for any support requests such as a change to the image capture frequency or schedule. IN THIS POST, WE WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO DO THAT LOCALLY, ON THE LAN ( LOCAL AREA NETWORK )
GIVE THE CAMERA INTERNET ACCESS
Thats the first and most important thing and the great news is there is not much more to do there after. All the technical pre-config and build work has already been done. Your small LAN BOX has a POE injector housed inside.
- The OUT PORT goes to the camera, with the included longer 20 MTR outdoor data cable
- The IN PORT goes to your internet switch or router, with the included 2 MTR data cable
** THE CAMERA IS IN DHCP MODE, WHEN ITS CONNECTED TO THE ROUTER, IT WILL ASSIGN ITSELF AN IP ADDRESS.
SET UP PORT-FORWARDING, IF YOU WANT US TO DO THE NEXT
Anyone who looks after the network should know what Port-forwarding is. Its a setting within the routers firewall that allows you to open ports, so someone ( like us ) can log directly into the camera to make further changes, like the below and next steps.
*** PORT FORWARDING IS ONLY REQUIRED IF YOU EVER WANTED SOMEONE OUTSIDE OF THE LOCAL NETWORK TO MAKE CHANGES TO THE CAMERA. EXAMPLE: TO CHANGE THE SCHEDULE ETC. ALL THIS CAN BE DONE LOCALLY AND WE WILL GO THROUGH THAT BELOW:
SYNC & SET THE CORRECT TIME
CHANGE THE SCHEDULE
Follow the video below, EDGE is the SD card, FTP is to the cloud.
