Cloud Setup

Put your camera in Cloud Mode

Welcome to the NetCamPro Cloud Setup! At this point we assume that your camera has Internet connectivity and that it can be accessed by NCPL. We recommend using a computer for setting up Cloud. If you’re planning on using your iPhone or iPad to set up Cloud, please install Dropbox, Google Drive, or iCloud on your mobile Apple device.

Cloud setup requires the camera to be on the same Local Area Network (LAN) as the person setting it up. The LAN connection to the camera can be wireless or wired. Cloud setup cannot be done easily over the Internet without the http port forwarded to the camera.

Let’s get started!

Enter your camera’s IP address into your browser’s URL field (ex.: 192.168.0.95) and click on Settings.

What’s my IP? Find Your IP.

Every NetCamPro camera has a built in administration web site. This web site can be accessed with a web browser by entering the camera’s IP address in the URL field.

Find Your IP

For best user experience with the Cloud we recommend using Google Chrome on your Mac, Windows PC, or mobile device.

Log in as admin using your camera’s admin password. The default username and password are admin/admin“.
