IP Cameras FAQs
Q. I am setting up my Indoor Storage Options IP Camera (SON-IPC1) and I am unable to find the registration details required to complete the set up.
A. Your registration name and code can be found on a white sticker adhered to the plastic wallet which the installation CD comes in. If you are unable to locate this, please contact our support team.
A. To change you password open up a browser and connect to your IP Camera. Go to ‘Settings / Setup’ and then ‘User Settings’. Next enter a new password for admin. You will then be presented with a logon into which you can enter the username ‘admin’ and your new password.
A. Under the unit you will see the reset hole, use a pen or similar and press and hold for 10 seconds. Remove the power connection while still holding the reset button and wait a further 10 seconds. Next, reconnect the power supply and wait for another 10 seconds before releasing the reset button.
Once you have completed this release the reset button and the camera will reboot. This may take up to two minutes.
You will need to go into the Setup menu, then scroll down the list of options until you get to “Date Input”. Here you can set the current time and date.
Q. I am having difficulties in setting up my Indoor Storage Options IP Camera (SON-IPC1) with my wireless network, can you help?
A. First ensure that you have connected the wireless antenna which comes with the product.
Connect to the web interface on your camera by typing its IP address into your web browser (preferably Internet Explorer) like this: http://192.168.1.xxx. (You may need to add a port number if you have changed the default setting, e.g. http://192.168.1.xxx:81)
When you have logged in, click the "Network" option on the main menu, then choose "Wireless LAN Settings". Click the "Scan" button to search for available wireless networks. (You may have to search twice for it to pick up any networks.) Once it has finished scanning, select your chosen network name from the list.
Ensure the check box next to "Using Wireless LAN" is ticked, and choose the encryption type, then enter your password. Click "Submit" and the camera will restart. Wait a couple of minutes for the reboot to complete (the camera will rotate during this time), then disconnect the LAN cable.
You should then be able to connect wirelessly.

A. I’m afraid due to the inbuilt software used on the IP Camera it is not possible to fully operate the unit on the Apple operating system.
It is possible to setup the Camera via a PC then access via your Apple Internet browser to view the images, you will be unable to record via the Internet browser.
A. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, for further details.
