Replace the correct IP address of your camera in place of 10.11.12.13.

Connecting a single camera to a Laptop with an Ethernet cable

  1. Configure host PC networking for address 10.11.12.1
  2. Enable browser video player, enable javascript, enable cookies, and set security level to allow connections to local device without going though a proxy.
  3. Attach lens
  4. Insert Secure Digital SD card - label faces outward
  5. Connect Ethernet cable between host PC and camera
  6. Connect power
  7. Wait for system LED (one farthest from power jack) to turn solid yellow
  8. Browse to camera at address http://10.11.12.13 Please use the Google Chrome browser. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge and Safari are NOT supported.
  9. Hover the mouse over the elements in the browser window for a short description. A full Web user interface description is available in the not-so-quick start guide, also know as the 200+ pages of edgertronic camera documentation.
  10. Adjust exposure and camera settings. Can't see anything? Open up aperture and/or add brighter lights.
  11. Capture video using Web UI,external trigger, or multi-function button.
  12. You can browse to the part of the root file system, called static by browsing to http://10.11.12.13/static replacing 10.11.12.13 with your camera's IP address as necessary.
    You can see the list of saved video files and related metadata file file by browsing to the link /static/mnt, clicking on directory sdcard or usb and videos and metadata file are stored in the directory DCIM (/static/mnt/sdcard/DCIM or /static/mnt/usb/DCIM).
    You will find the camera log file at the link /static/log/messages.

Connecting a additional cameras to a Laptop with an Ethernet cable

  1. Configure host PC networking for address 10.11.12.1

Computer and camera connected to existing network

An existing network infrastructure is one with a DHCP server that gives all the devices, including your edgertronic camera, an IP address. In order to use the camera, you need to figure out what IP address was assigned to the camera.

  1. Enable browser video player, enable javascript, enable cookies, and set security level to allow connections to local device without going though a proxy.
  2. Attach lens
  3. Insert Secure Digital SD card - label faces outward
  4. Connect Ethernet cable between modem and camera
  5. Connect power
  6. Wait for system LED (one farthest from power jack) to be solid blue
  7. Remove the SD card and look for a file that contains the IP address of the camera, replace SD card
  8. Browse to camera's IP address. Please use the Google Chrome browser. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge and Safari are NOT supported.
  9. Hover the mouse over the elements in the browser window for a short description. A full Web user interface description is available in the not-so-quick start guide, also know as the 200+ pages of edgertronic camera documentation.
  10. Adjust exposure and camera settings. Can't see anything? Open up aperture and/or add brighter lights.
  11. Capture video using Web UI, external trigger, or multi-function button.
  12. You can browse to the part of the root file system, called static by browsing to http://10.11.12.13/static replacing 10.11.12.13 with your camera's IP address as necessary.
    You can see the list of saved video files and related metadata file file by browsing to the link /static/mnt, clicking on directory sdcard or usb and videos and metadata file are stored in the directory DCIM (/static/mnt/sdcard/DCIM or /static/mnt/usb/DCIM).
    You will find the camera log file at the link /static/log/messages.


If your network uses DHCP to assign IP addresses, and you need a predictable IP address, you're in luck! On the back of the camera, you'll find that we prominently engraved the camera's MAC Address. This lets you follow the industry DHCP standard and assign a DHCP Address Reservation based on the device's MAC Address. Once the address reservation is in place, the DHCP server will assigned the IP address to each camera based on the unique MAC address. The steps to enter an Address Reservation into your DHCP server's database is dependent on the DHCP server being used.
