D-Linkās DCS-5222L is a versatile and cost effective Network Camera offering both video and audio monitoring. It can also serve as a powerful
surveillance system in security applications. The DCS-5222L can be used with any wired or 802.11n/g wireless router. This section explains how to
view the camera from either the Internet or from inside your internal network.
ā¢ 1 DCS-5222L Network Camera
ā¢ 1 Ethernet Cable
ā¢ A wired or wireless router such as the D-Link DIR-655 Wireless Router
ā¢ Ethernet-based PC for system configuration Setting up the DCS-5222L for Use Behind a Router
Installing a DCS-5222L Network Camera on your network is an easy 4āstep procedure:
1. Assign a local IP address to your network camera.
2. View the network camera using your Internet Explorer web browser.
3. Access the router with your web browser.
4. Open virtual server ports to enable remote image viewing. Note: These are manual steps; however, if you decide to use the wizard, it will perform every step automatically.
This section is designed to walk you through the setup process for installing your camera behind a router and enable remote video viewing. For
the basic setup of the DCS-5222L, follow the steps outlined in the Quick Installation Guide.
After you have completed the setup of the DCS-5222L outlined in the Quick Installation Guide you will have an operating camera that has an
assigned IP Address. Because you are using a router to share the Internet with one or more PCs, the IP Address assigned to the Network Camera
will be a local IP Address. This allows viewing within your Local Area Network (LAN) until the router is configured to allow remote viewing of the
camera over the Internet. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 44 Section 5 - Security 1. Assign a Local IP Address to Your Camera
Run the setup wizard from the CD included with the DCS-5222L. Follow the steps in the Quick Installation Guide to configure the DCS-5222L. The
camera will be assigned a local IP Address that allows it to be recognized by the router. Write down this IP Address for future reference. 2. View the Network Camera Using Your Internet Explorer Web Browser
Open a Web browser. In the address bar, type in the IP Address that was assigned to the Network Camera. The DCS-5222L Live Video Page appears
with a window displaying live video from the camera.
Click on the Setup button on the left side. Scroll to the bottom of the Network Setup page to display the ports used by HTTP and Streaming audio
and video. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 45 Section 5 - Security
The Setup > Network page displays the port settings for your camera. If necessary, these ports can be changed if they are already in use by other
devices (e.g. in a multiple camera environment). Note: Both the HTTP port and RTSP port are required to be opened for the DCS-5222L. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 46 Section 5 - Security Router Set-Up and Installation
The fol owing steps general y apply to any router that you have on your network. The D-Link DIR-655 is used as an example to clarify the configuration
process. Refer to the routerās user manual for more information on router operation and configuration. 3. Access the Router with Your Web Browser
If you have cable or DSL Internet service, you wil most likely have
a dynamically assigned WAN IP Address. āDynamicā means that your
routerās WAN IP address can change from time to time depending
on your ISP. A dynamic WAN IP Address identifies your router on the
public network and allows it to access the Internet. To find out what
your routerās WAN IP Address is, go to the Status page on your router
and locate the WAN information for your router (as shown on the next
page). The WAN IP Address will be listed. This will be the address that
you will need to type in your web browser to view your camera over
Your WAN IP Address will be listed on the routerās Status > Device
Info page. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 47 Section 5 - Security Note: Because a dynamic WAN IP can change from time to time depending on your ISP, you may want to obtain a Static IP address from your ISP. A Static
IP address is a fixed IP address that will not change over time and will be more convenient for you to use to access your camera from a remote location. The
Static IP Address will also allow you to access your camera attached to your router over the Internet. 4. Open Ports to Enable Remote Image Viewing (Port Forwarding)
The firewall security features built into the DIR-655 router prevent users from accessing the video from the DCS-5222L over the Internet. The router
connects to the Internet over a series of numbered ports. The ports normally used by the DCS-5222L are blocked from access over the Internet.
Therefore, these ports need to be made accessible over the Internet. This is accomplished using the Virtual Server function on the DIR-655 router.
The Virtual Server ports used by the camera must be opened through the router for remote access to your camera. Virtual Server is accessed by
clicking on the Advanced tab of the router screen.
Follow these steps to configure your routerās Virtual Server settings:
1. Click Enabled. 2. Enter a different name for each entry. 3. Enter your cameraās local IP Address (e.g., 192.168.0.120) in the Private IP field. 4. Select TCP for HTTP port, both (TCP and UDP) for RTSP and both (TCP and UDP) for 5556 - 5559 ports. 5. If you are using the default camera port settings, enter 80 into the Public and Private Port section, click Apply. 6. Scheduling should be set to Always so that the camera images can be accessed at any time. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 48 Section 5 - Security
Repeat the previous steps adding the port 554 to both the Public and Private Port sections. A check mark appearing before the entry name will
indicate that the ports are enabled.
Important: Some ISPs block access to port 80 and other commonly used Internet ports to conserve bandwidth. Check with your ISP so that you can
open the appropriate ports accordingly. If your ISP does not pass traffic on port 80, you will need to change the port the camera uses from 80 to
something else, such as 800. Not all routers are the same, so refer to your user manual for specific instructions on how to open ports.
Enter valid ports in the Virtual Server section of your router. Please make sure to check the box next to the camera name on the Virtual Server List
to enable your settings. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 49 Section 6 - Troubleshooting Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of the DCS-5222L. 1. What is Remote Access? How do I enable it?
Remote Access allows you to access your camera from any PC connected to the Internet through a web browser. This lets you view your camera
feed and manage your cameraās settings when youāre away from home.
To enable Remote Access, simply go through the Camera Installation Wizard included on the Installation CD that came in your package. You can
also download the wizard from http://www.mydlink.com/support.
After going through the wizard, you should see Remote Status: Enabled on the summary page. If you see Remote Status: Disabled, make sure that:
...the front LED on your camera is lit solid green
...your Internet connection is working
...your routerās LAN & WAN connections are working properly
...your router has UPnP enabled (if your router does not support UPnP, please refer to Appendix A)
...your router can get a public IP
...your router is upgraded to the latest firmware
...you have tried rebooting your router by unplugging it, then plugging it back in
After checking the above items, you can click the Retry button to refresh the summary screen to see if Remote Access has been enabled. 2. What can I do if I forget my password?
If you forget your password, you wil need to perform a hard reset of your camera. This process wil change al your settings back to the factory defaults.
To reset your camera, please use an unfolded paperclip to press and hold the RESET button for at least 8 seconds while your camera is plugged in. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 50 Section 6 - Troubleshooting 3. In addition to using mydlink.com, is there another way to access my camera remotely over the Internet?
Yes, you can access your camera over the Internet through the fol owing URL after successful y instal ing your camera through the Camera Instal ation
For example, if your cameraās mydlink No. was 12345678, you would be able to access your camera remotely by opening your web browser and
going to http://12345678.mydlink.com.
This URL will open a webpage where you will be asked to log in by entering your cameraās password. After entering your password, your cameraās
Live View window will open, and you will be able to configure your camera as well. 4. Why does the LED not light up?
The power supply might be faulty. Confirm that you are using the provided DC 5V power supply for this network camera. Verify that the power
supply is correctly connected. If the camera is functioning normally, the LED may have been disabled. See page 36 for information about how to
enable the LED. 5. Why is the cameraās network connection unreliable?
There might be a problem with the network cable. To confirm that the cables are working, PING the address of a known device on the network. If
the cabling is OK and your network is reachable, you should receive a reply similar to the following (ā¦bytes = 32 time = 2 ms).
Another possible problem may be that the network device such as a hub or switch utilized by the Network Camera is not functioning properly.
Please confirm the power for the devices are well connected and functioning properly. 6. Why does the Network Camera work locally but not remotely?
This might be caused by the firewall protection. Check the Internet firewall with your system administrator. The firewall may need to have some
settings changed in order for the Network Camera to be accessible outside your local LAN. For more information, please refer to the section about
installing your camera behind a router.
Make sure that the Network Camera isnāt conflicting with any Web server you may have running on your network. The default router setting might
be a possible reason. Check that the configuration of the router settings allow the Network Camera to be accessed outside your local LAN. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 51 Section 6 - Troubleshooting 7. Why does a series of broad vertical white lines appear through out the image?
It could be that the CMOS sensor (a square panel situated behind the lens that measures the light signals and changes it into a digital format so
your computer can present it into an image that you are familiar with) has become overloaded when it has been exposed to bright lights such
as direct exposure to sunlight or halogen lights. Reposition the Network Camera into a more shaded area immediately as prolonged exposure to
bright lights will damage the CMOS sensor. 8. The camera is producing noisy images. How can I solve the problem?
The video images might be noisy if the Network Camera is used in a very low light environment. 9. The images are poor quality, how can I improve the image quality?
Make sure that your computerās display properties are set to at least 6-bit color. Using 16 or 256 colors on your computer will produce dithering
artifacts in the image, making the image look as if it is of poor quality.
The configuration on the Network Camera image display is incorrect. The Web Configuration Video section of the Web management allows you to
adjust the related-parameters for improved images such as: brightness, contrast, hue and light frequency. Please refer to the Web Configuration
section for detailed information. 10. Why are no images available through the Web browser?
ActiveX might be disabled. If you are viewing the images from Internet Explorer make sure ActiveX has been enabled in the Internet Options menu.
You may also need to change the security settings on your browser to allow the ActiveX plug-in to be installed.
If you are using Internet Explorer with a version number lower than 6, then you will need to upgrade your Web browser software in order to view
the streaming video transmitted by the Network Camera. 11. The PIR is no operation well, how can I improve the PIR quality?
ā¢ For the Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) to function properly it is required to have direct line of site to the object. When the room has many obstacles
or the line of site is obstructed by glass, the PIR will not function properly.
ā¢ When the environment temperature is too high, the PIR detection will slow down and should not be mistaken for a faulty PIR. ā¢ This Network Camera can only be installed indoors. Do not install this camera in a place where IR interference can be a problem. IR interference
can be found close to glass doors or windows, where direct sunlight can cause interference or in the path of car headlights. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 52 Section 6 - Troubleshooting
ā¢ Do not install this camera next to or in front of an air conditioner outlet or vent. ā¢ Do not install this camera close to wireless devices with high frequencies as the PIR is easily affected by RF radiation. ā¢ The PIR functions at best when detecting lateral movements. Radial movements cannot be detected as well as lateral movements. ā¢ Do not install this camera directly under an extreme bright light. The PIR cannot fully suppress a bright white light. ā¢ Any movements from an object with a normal body temperature, like humans or animals, can be detected. To avoid any malfunctions, install
this camera at the proper height.
ā¢ To avoid any malfunctions, install this camera in an environment with an average temperature of 25Ā°C. Only within a distance of 2.5 meters
can smaller movements of an object, with the average adult humanās height, be detected. Between a distance of 2.5 and 5 meters, a larger
movement of an object is required for detection.
ā¢ Install this camera on a firm, static, anti-shock surface. D-Link DCS-5222L User Manual 53 Appendix A - Networking Basics Networking Basics Check your IP address After you install your new D-Link adapter, by default, the TCP/IP settings should be set to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server (i.e. wireless
