The IP camera address is always the key if you would like to monitor or remote viewing it. Like any network device, the camera is assigned an IP address when it is connected to the router with Internet access and powered on.
Here we will introduce 3 ways to find the network camera IP address quickly and easily.
The browser supported by Bosch cameras depends on the CPP that camera belongs to and on the Firmware version the camera has.. In web browsers that do not support MPEG-ActiveX, VCA configuration is only possible via Configuration Manager.
Not all Cisco PoE+ switches are able to power up the UHO-PoE-10 or VSP-UHO-PoE-10 outdoor housing (F.01U.300.502, F.01U.332.052).
Bosch has introduced the UHO-PoE-10 in 2014 following the IEEE802.3-2009 standards
Cisco claims that the Bosch UHO-PoE-10 at startup for a short moment (around 1 micro second) exceeds maximum current peek allowed by the updated IEEE 802.3-2015 standard, allowing the PSE (Power Source Equipment) to withdraw the power as a protective measure.
Due to analogue overcurrent protector components in the Cisco switch it can happen that tolerances may cause variety in behavior over different Cisco switches, even when the same model and setups are used.
Currently this behavior is only known on some Cisco models. (reports were seen on C2960X, C3560CX and recently C9200.)
Depending on the FW version of cameras and BVMS version you have installed, different possible situations can occur such as: the cameras are not working because the firmware is old, Configuration Client will display a message like: "unknown platform", Gaps in recordings or not recording at all and so on
Often, the camera image is running fine, then begins to stutter when the objects are in moving scene or in a complex environment. Your view starts looking like a slideshow, things get visibly choppy and swaying objects start to move less fluidly.
This behaviour can be controlled by changing the frames per second (FPS) value or upgrading the Firmware of your camera.
❓ But where can you find or change the frame rate & Firmware settings of Bosch cameras?
If you want to improve the image quality of your Bosch camera and you did not find the FPS option in the Web User Interface, please follow this article and you will find the answer.
So, keep reading this article and find out where you can get multiple information including the Firmware version of your camera, from a single comprehensive system overview page.
The unit can receive the time signal from a time server using various time server protocols and then use it to set the internal clock. The device polls the time signal automatically once every minute.
To check the NTP connection from the camera please follow the below steps:
Check this article and find out what you can do if you are using one Divar network 2000 and you have a new Flexidome IP 5000i IR camera, but you cannot add it to the Divar because it is not displayed in “Detection” > “Device search” screen.
How to detect in an easy and convenient way if the camera suffers from a failing shutter mechanism which can result in white or ghost images? This article helps you to identify if the camera possibly suffers from a random failing shutter which uses the FFC (Flat Field Correction) instead of waiting for the FFC taking place approx every ~10min, you can now fire it on command.
Please keep in mind that for SNMP v3 only the the Standard MIB II file is supported. This means that only general network device performance monitoring parameters can be requested. There is no Bosch Private MIB II extension for SNMP v3.
Sometimes it is preferable to have a different “user mode” during the day then in the night.
Our cameras by default have the option to switch the user mode e.g. triggered by the camera D/N switch over. But also other triggers can be chosen. Below an example how to setup the “user mode” switching triggered by the D/N switch over.
