To configure SharpV cameras, you must first log on to the SharpV Portal.
Before you begin
- You need to know the IP address or name of the SharpV camera you want to connect to:
- SharpV name
- You can find the SharpV name (for example, SharpV12345) on the label on the back of the camera.
- SharpV fallback IP address
- The fallback IP address is 192.168.10.100. The fallback IP address is only available if the camera is in DHCP mode (default). After camera startup, the camera searches for a DHCP server. If no DHCP server is present on the network after two minutes, the fallback IP address is made available.
