have Enable Audio checked. Then click OK

should be automatically detected.To find out your camera ip pls check: FAQ8-How to setting the fixed IP

In some cases your Wi-Fi router may have configuration that hinders automatic detection.

Should it happen type in "http://your camera IP address:5000/onvif/device_service" to manually add the camera.



The BlueIris starts to connect to the camera for retrieving configuration parameters.

You can see the progress in the Inspecting... window. The "Done" displayed in the scroll window signifies a successful retrieval.

Click Close button.


Step 6: Now you are guided back to the Network IP camera configuration window with many parameters filled. 

If User and Password are filled, remove them to leave these two parameters blank.

Click OK to establish the connection.

discovery procedure), you can fill the parameter manually following the diagram above.

minute, stop the connection and return back to check the connection parameters in the Network IP

camera configuration window
