Note for Connecting to GV-System / GV-VMS

The GV-IPCAM H.264 is designed to work with GV-System / GV-VMS, a 
video management system. Note the following when GV-IPCAM H.264 is 
connected to GV-System / GV-VMS:

1.  By default, the images are recorded to the memory card inserted to the 

GV-IP Camera H.264. 

2.  Once the camera is connected to GV-System / GV-VMS, the resolution 

set on GV-System / GV-VMS will override the resolution set on the 
camera’s Web interface. You can only change the resolution settings 
through the Web interface when the connection to GV-System / GV-VMS 
is interrupted.

Note for Recording

1.  By default, the images are recorded to the memory card inserted to the 

GV-IP Camera H.264. Make sure the 

Write recording data into local 


 option is enabled. If this option is disabled, the camera will stop 

recording to the memory card while the live view is accessed through 
Web browsers or other applications. For details, see 

Video Settings, 

Administrator Chapter, GV-IPCam H.264 User’s Manual


2.  Mind the following when using a memory card for recording:

  Recorded data on the memory card can be damaged or lost if the 

data are accessed while the camera is under physical shock, power 
interruption, memory card detachment or when the memory card 
reaches the end of its lifespan. No guarantee is provided for such 

  To avoid power outage, it is highly suggested to apply a battery 

backup (UPS).

  For better performance, it is highly suggested to use Micro SD card of 

MLC NAND flash, Class 10.

  Replace the memory card when its read/write speed is lower than 6 

MB/s or when the memory card is frequently undetected by the

Note for Installing Camera Outdoor

3.  It is recommended to use memory cards of the following setting and 


1.  The camera is set up above the junction box to prevent water from 

entering the camera along the cables.

2.  Any PoE, power, audio and I/O cables are waterproofed using waterproof 

silicon rubber or the like. 

  Apply a battery backup (UPS) to avoid power outage.

  Use Micro SD card of MLC NAND flash, Class 10 for better

2.  You can choose to run the wires through a conduit pipe. After you 

have threaded all the wires, install the supplied conduit converter and 
plastic PG21 conduit connector with a self-prepared 1/2’’ conduit 
pipe to the camera. Power will have to be supplied through a PoE 
adapter because the power adapter wire does not fit in a 1/2” pipe. 
You will have to purchase your own PG21 conduit connector if you 
want to use a 3/4” or 1” pipe.

The Vandal Proof IP Dome is designed for outdoors. With the standard 
package, you can install the camera on the ceiling.

Rotate to remove the 
indicated cap and the 
plug inside.

Thread an Ethernet cable (the end with no RJ-45 connector) from 
the back panel through the cable seal and re-install the cap.

Use the supplied ruler and 
leave about 11 cm of the 
Ethernet cable between 
the connector and the 
cable seal.

11 cm

Conduit Connector


Thread wires into the camera.

A.  Unscrew the conduit 

connector from the back.

B.  Unplug the conduit connector inside the housing and 

disassemble the connector composed of 4 parts.

C.  Remove the terminal block from the power adapter. 

D.  Thread the audio wires (optional), TV out wire (optional),

For part 2, there are 8 holes each labeled with its diameter. 
Remove the plugs and push the wires to the corresponding 
holes listed below:


2.6 mm: Audio, BNC

2 mm: DC12V / AC24V

1.8 mm: DIDO

Use the supplied ruler and leave about 10 cm of power and I/O 
wires between their connectors and the cable seal; leave at 
least 11 cm of audio/TV-out wires between their connectors and 
the cable seal.

1.  The gel bag loses its effectiveness when the dry camera is 

opened. To prevent the lens from fogging up, replace the silica 
gel bag every time you open the camera and conceal the silica 
gel bag within 2 minutes of exposing to open air.

2.  For each newly replaced silica gel bag, allow it to absorb 

moisture for at least 5 hours before operating the camera.

3.  Make sure the housing cover is properly secured to prevent 

water from entering and damaging the inner housing.

4.  If the center of the camera view is less than 25° to the ceiling, 

or lower than the grey line (as illustrated below), disassemble 
the indicated ring so the view is not obstructed. However, with 
the ring disassembled, slight reflections may occur.

Connect the camera to power, network and other wires needed.

There are two ways to supply power to the camera:

  Use a Power over Ethernet (PoE) adapter to connect the camera to 

the network, and the power will be provided at the same time.

  Plug the power adapter to the terminal block by inserting the wire with 

white lines to the right pin and the other wire to the left pin.


Connecting the Power Cable

The Vandal Proof IP Dome support one digital input and one digital output of 
dry contact.
