How to add CNet IP Surveillance cameras to your 
network, configure breach manager and store images 
to NAS? 
 

Adding a CIC-901W camera to an existing network 

Assumption is that the network already has a wireless router and connected to the 
Internet.  The components needed are the IP Camera and the Network Attached 
storage device. 

 

 

 

The CNet cameras have their Camera software on the CD shipped with 
each unit. Please note that wireless camera CIC-901W needs to be first 
connected to the network via an Ethernet cable so SSID of the unit can 
be configured to match the one from the wireless router on the network. 
 

ƒ

 

Install and run the camera software. 

ƒ

 

IPCam software will search and find the camera on the network

ƒ

 

Configure IP address of the camera to be DHCP or assign a static 
IP address matching your network. 

ƒ

 

Assign new http port or accept default port number 80 

ƒ

 

Click submit to save settings 

ƒ

 

Click update for thr software to find the camera again 

ƒ

 

Double click on he found camera to bring up its web interface.

To configure the camera settings click on : 
 

 To take a snapshot image and save to the system or to network 

 

 To start a recording and save to the system or network 

 

 To go into the camera configuration settings 

 

 To view multiple cameras at the same time 

 

To set the SSID of the wireless camera click on the 

 icon.  Go to 

network settings.  Enable wireless and choose static or DHCP for IP 
assignment.  When IP is set click on the wireless tab and change the 
SSID to match that of the wireless router on your network.

After submitting the changes that were made, the camera is ready to be 
deployed.  Now all wireless systems can access the camera on the 
network.   
 

Advanced settings 
 

Camera can be configured to detect motion and alarm via FTP or E-mail 
a captured image when triggered by motion.  To access advanced 

settings click on the  

 icon.  The camera can be configured to FTP, E-

mail images on motion detection.  It can send a TCP message and it can 
receive trigger signal from external alarm systems as well as send trigger 
signal to other existing alarm systems.  For example if there are door 
sensors that activate a siren when door is opened, camera can also 
receive that signal through the GPIO ports and start capturing images 
and send E-mail notification.  Or we can configure the camera to 
activate an external alarm system/siren when motion is detected.

FTP settings windows allows for entering the IP address of the FTP 
server and the username and password the user needs to use to access 
that server. 
 

            

 

 
 
Mail setting window allows for entering the E-mail server and user 
information.

Mail Server box should have the IP address of the mail server.  This is 
the outgoing/SMTP mail server of your service provider. 
The next boxes are the user name and password associated with that 
account.  Mail sender is your e-mail address and the mail receiver box is 
the e-mail of the person receiving the alarm notification.  
 
GPIO setting window allows for configuring the GPIO ports on the back 
of the camera.

TCP Msg page is for configuring the breach manager to send a message 
to a server upon receiving a trigger signal.  This trigger could be motion, 
DI or DO signals.

The breach manager window is where all alarm control settings are.  We 
can have up to 4 scenarios (breach ID 0 to 3).  For example we can have 
breach ID 0 to be for Motion as the trigger and FTP for the action.  In 
other words we are saying to the camera that upon detecting a motion, 
send and image captured at that moment to the FTP server identified in 
the FTP server page.  Or breach ID 1 can be to send an e-mail when a 
motion is detected.

Storing Images to a Network Attached Storage for local and remote 
access. 
 
The NAS enclosure we used for this test is the CNet CLD-221P a NAS 
enclosure with print server capability.  It supports samba, NFS, FTP, 
iTunes and Bitorrent.  The LAN disk when powered up the first time 
provides default user of admin and guest-share.  Users can use the add 
users menu to add users to the NAS and create private folders for each 
user.  This private user folder can be used for the location of FTPed 
images from the camera.  For accessing these images from a remote 
location: 
 

1-

 

Forward ftp port 21 to the IP address of the NAS enclosure on the 
router.  In our tests we use CWR-854 VPN router.   

2-

 

Use an FTP client software to access user private folder created on 
the NAS device and view images.

Please note that the default ftp folder for the NAS enclosure is the guest-
share folder.  You can also set the camera to FTP images to the guest-
share folder by using guest-share as the user and no password.  When 
guest-share folder is used, users can use their browser to 

ftp://WAN

 

IP 

of your router

 to access ftped images. 

 
 
CIC-901L implementation is exactly the same as CIC-901W.  The only 
difference is the lack of wireless capability on CIC-901.
