Recording of videos and still images may be performed while monitoring.

When “VIDEO REC FORMAT” is set to “AVCHD”, video quality of the recorded video is XP.

When “VIDEO REC FORMAT” is set to “MP4/MOV”, video quality of the recorded video is 360p.

Size of the captured still image is 1280X720.

What You Need

Smartphone or Windows computer

Wireless LAN router that supports UPnP (use a product that has a Wi-Fi certification logo)

To check whether UPnP is supported, please refer to the instruction manual of the wireless LAN router in use.

Internet connection with an obtainable global IP address

* Global IP address is an IP address that is specific in all over the internet. For more information, contact your internet service provider.


Depending on the wireless LAN router in use and signal strength, you may experience connection problems or slow connections.

When zooming is operated by using the smartphone or computer, it may take longer for responses as compared to the manual operations.

Settings Required in Advance

To operate, it is necessary to connect the camera to the internet via an access point (UPnP compatible wireless LAN router) in the house. As such, the following 3 settings are required.

*The above settings are not necessary if they have already been set for other functions.

1 Registering an access point

2 Obtaining a dynamic DNS account

3 Setting the account on this camera


Even if registration is done correctly to the camera, access may be temporarily unavailable such as when the dynamic DNS server is down.
To check whether the dynamic DNS server is working properly, access and check the DDNS server with a computer, etc.
