I don't think it has been fired up before, but who knows. Off to reset the camera... I'll report back in a bit.Don’t try and manually add it - it will likely fail and make a bigger problem
It’s possible the camera has been powered on for testing before you got it..?
I’ve also had cameras take a while to get a green indicator.
OR, if you have easy access to it, open the access cover, and hold the reset button down for 30 seconds while connected to the NVR. Then unplug it, delete from the registration screen, and plug back in
Thanks for the response;To be brief
2- use IE
3- not that I’m aware of
https://ipaddress. I used chrome. I didn't need to install any certificates. I did get the big warning from chrome that the ssl certificate was untrusted but that is because it is self signed. I might import it later.
“NVR - 8P (internal PoE)
Cameras were added via button "Add", IPs were assigned via DHCP:”
Typically that’s the problem.
Go back to the first post in this thread. Do NOT use the ADD button, allow the NVR to automatically recognize and add the cameras to the bottom pane by itself.
1- unplug all cameras from NVR
2- delete all entries on the registration screen
3- reboot nvr
4- plug ONE camera into port 1 on nvr
5- wait. Wait, WAIT
Hit refresh at bottom of registration page and you should see camera 1 show up on bottom pane with a green indicator, 10.1.1.x IP, and a port of 1.
Rinse/repeat for each additional camera.
