If you cannot connect to a SharpV camera on your network, you can try connecting to the camera by using the camera's fallback IP address.

What you should know

  • You may need to connect to the camera using the fallback IP address if, for example, the DHCP server is not available.
  • If the camera is powered up and is not connected to the network for a few minutes, the fallback IP address will be available.
  • The fallback IP address is only available if the camera is in DHCP mode.

  3. Reconfigure the camera as required and reconnect to the network.
