Operating Instructions Network Camera Model No. BL-C30C Operating Instructions 2 Main Features Wireless Communication Network Camera corresponds to the wireless system based on IEEE 802.11b/g. Wireless installation will play an increasing role in flexible mounting. Communication via Ethernet cable is also available. Encryption establishes the security on the wireless network. Various remote monitoring features • Pyroelectric infrared sensor1 detects temperature differences caused by a human body or animals. • Detection can let camera transfer images by E-mail or FTP2. • Color night view mode (auto-adjusted) enables the camera to display images even in 1 lx illuminance3. Monitoring from PC or cell phone • The camera images can be monitored over the Internet. • Pan/tilt operation can move the lens horizontally from –50 ° to +50 ° and vertically from –40 ° to +10 °. Privacy mode • Privacy mode hides the lens into the unit to protect privacy. • Pressing the privacy button on the front of the camera switches privacy mode on or off with a single touch. 1 The sensor uses pyroelectric effect. Due to the effects of environment temperature, direct sunlight or air conditioner, it may detect the temperature differences by mistake, or the detection range may be shortened. 2 It may take some time to transfer images depending on the network condition. 3 1 lx is the brightness about 2.5 m (8.2 feet) away from auxiliary fluorescent light. Color night view mode slows down the frame rate, and images may blur when viewing a moving object or using the pan/tilt operation. Privacy Monitoring Purpose Privacy mode On Disabled Protecting privacy Monitoring Off Enabled Remote monitoring Operating Instructions Easy installation using UPnPTM (Universal Plug and Play) When connecting the camera with a UPnPTM enabled router, the camera automatically configures its network settings. Some UPnPTM enabled routers cannot configure the camera automatically. In this case, the router needs to be configured manually. Ask the router manufacturer how to configure it.
