By default, all Avonic PTZ cameras have a fixed IP address set to 192.168.5.163 with username and password 'admin'
The current IP address is shown on the SDI and HDMI outputs after the camera has successfully been powered up.
Through the OSD menu, it is possible to activate the DHCP mode or keep the IP static 'as is'. It is not possible to set the IP address to a different one, that possibility is only available via the WebGUI
The login page of the WebGUI looks like this:
When you are logged into the WebGUI of the camera, you either set a fixed IP address or let the camera receive a DHCP address from a DHCP server (usually the router or gateway on the Local Area Network or LAN). You can find these possibilities in the 'network' tab of the WebGUI:
If the camera is set to receive an IP address via DHCP and it boots up without receiving an IP address from the DHCP server, it will resort to a so-called fallback IP address, self-appointed, in the range 169.254.xxx.xxx
In this case, the IP address might not show correctly during the boot sequence, as the camera is at that point in time, still waiting for the DHCP server to provide an IP address.
The correct way to find the self-appointed fallback address is to wait until the camera is booted up completely.
Use the included remote control and navigate the OSD via the HDMI or SDI output to view the current IP address:
Remember that each time the camera is rebooted, the fallback address can be different.
