By default, the camera is set to DHCP, meaning it will automatically obtain an IP address from your DHCP server, if available. If your network doesn’t utilize a DHCP server, the camera will fallback to its static IP address of “192.168.1.180”. To change this IP address to an IP address on your network range, follow the steps below.
By default, the camera is set to DHCP. If your camera ever comes out of DHCP mode, you can quickly set it back by using the IR remote shortcut: [F1] >  >  > : Sets the IP address to DHCP
If your network doesn’t support DHCP, or you want to give your camera a more permanent IP address, assign the camera a static IP address. You have two (2) options to assign this address.
- Tracking Software – Assign a static IP address from the Modify Netinfo Interface.
- Tracking Software – Assign a static IP address from the Remote Configuration > Network interface. 3. IR Remote – Press [F1] > [*] > [#] > [number 0~9]: Sets the camera’s IP address to 192.168.100.8(number 0~9).
Click the “Start Search” button from the Online Device section. This will search for all HuddleView, SimplTrack2, and SimplTrack Lite cameras on your network range. If you do not see your camera, you will need to change your computer’s IP address to match the network range of the camera.
The camera’s fallback IP address is 192.168.1.180, making the network range 192.168.1. Alternatively, you can use an IR remote shortcut to change the IP address to 192.168.100.8(0~9), making the network range 192.168.100. Change your computer’s IP address to match the network range of the camera to begin discovering the camera.
Remote Configuration > Network Interface
The Remote Configuration tab allows you to modify the settings of a camera that is already connected to the software. Once you change the IP address of a camera through this method, you will need to re-add the camera to the Tracking Software.
Discovering your Network Info
To discover your IP address range/scheme, Subnet Mask, Gateway, & First DNS, follow the instructions below for Windows or Mac OS. You may need to talk with your IT department to obtain this information.
- Open the Start menu and type “CMD” into the search bar.
- Once the Command Prompt is open, type in “ipconfig” and press the Enter key.
- Scroll down to the section titled “Ethernet adapter Ethernet” or “Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection”.
- Locate the “IPv4 Address” in that section. This is your computers local IP address. In the example above, the PC’s local address is “192.168.15.117”, making the network range “192.168.15”.
- Open a new Finder window and go to the Applications folder.
- Open the Utilities folder and select the Terminal program.
- Once the Terminal program is open, type in “ipconfig getifaddr en0” and press the Enter key.
- In the example above, the Mac’s local address is 192.168.17.107”, making the network range “192.168.17”.
