On the reverse side of the device you can monitor the operation of the indicator of the network interface, which is very useful in identifying possible problems.

Software installation

Now let's examine the possibility of firmware and the specificity of its setting.

After running a complete utility, we have the installation wizard of interface. First of all there is search for all connected IP-based cameras that are compatible with this software.

COMPRO TN95W

Then you can assign the name of the detected pattern, set the date, time and language.

COMPRO TN95W

The next step allows you to activate the service C4Home, which greatly facilitates the interaction with IP-based cameras via a web interface or mobile app.

The third stage is devoted to the choice of wireless or wired network.
