Hardware Installation
Connect the Ethernet Cable
Connect an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet connector
located on the Internet Camera’s back panel and attach
it to the network.
If you connect this camera directly to
a PC, you will need a cross-over
Ethernet cable. If you plug the camera into a
hub or router, you will be able to use the cable
included with your camera.
Attach the External Power Supply
Attach the external power supply to the DC power input
connector located on the Internet Camera’s back panel
(labeled DC 12V) and connect it to an AC power outlet.
Power source is confirmed when
the LED Power Indicator on the
Internet Camera is illuminated.
When you have a proper connection, the LED (Light Emitting Diode) will turn from red to
green. The light may blink on and off and your computer may show an intermittant loss of
connectivity if it is connected directly to the camera. This is normal until you have configured
your camera.

compatibility among networking equipment, software, and peripherals. The DCS-2000 is
a UPnP enabled internet camera. If your operating system is UPnP enabled, the device
will be easier to configure. If you do not want to use the UPnP functionality, it can be
disabled by unselecting “Enabled” on the DDNS/UPnP settings page under “Advanced”
in the configuration menu. Use the following steps to enable UPnP (Universal Plug and
