    • Dear Rivo Nantenaina,
      How did you add the device to the dss? If via NVR, the camera info under this NVR cannot be found; if you add the single camera to dss via IP address, the camera IP can be seen.
      Hope it helps.Have a nice day.

  • I have two cameras that have dropped from the MVR and some how the password has been changed I can not get them back on line. How do I do a reset on them to get them back up on the NVR. Also why or how was the password changed?

    • Hi Brian,
      There are two possible reasons for password change:
      1. Password has been changed manually;
      2. It has been modified synchronously. For example, when IPC was added to NVR, at that time the password of IPC was ‘admin123’; and during the period, the NVR password was changed into ‘admin1234’, and the IPC password was changed synchronously into ‘admin1234’ as well.
      You can log into the IPC web interface to try a few more passwords. If it still cannot work, you can click ‘Forget Password’ to retrieve password.
      Hope it helps.
