Adding Cameras To An HDSpotMod Through the Web Client

In some cases, cameras will need to be added manually to an HDSpotMod.  This article will explain how to automatically detect and add an IP camera, as well as how to manually add an IP camera, by using the DW-HDSpotMod Web Client.

The DW Spot™ Monitoring Module (DW-HDSPOTMOD) allows viewers to monitor and observe the live video streams from select cameras - available in either a 4-channel model or a 16-channel model.  

Automatically Detecting and Adding A Camera

1) To connect with the HDSpotMod, open a web browser and enter the IP Address and Web Port of the unit.  We recommend the use of Internet Explorer when viewing video streams through the HDSpotMod web client

2) Log in to the HDSpotMod Web Client as the Administrator.  Enter the same User ID and Password of the HDSpotMod

Note:  Default login is admin / --- (no password)

3) Select Setup, then navigate Monitoring > Registration

4) Enter the User ID and Password of your camera(s) in the upper-right corner of the window.  Click Search to automatically detect the IP cameras that are connected to your network

5) The detected cameras display in the Registration area of the Setup Menu.  Select and add your detected cameras

Manually Adding A Camera

1) To connect with the HDSpotMod, open a web browser and enter the IP Address and Web Port of the unit.  We recommend the use of Internet Explorer when viewing video streams through the HDSpotMod web client

2) Log in to the HDSpotMod Web Client as the Administrator.  Enter the same User ID and Password of the HDSpotMod

Note:  Default login is admin / --- (no password)

3) Select Setup, then navigate Monitoring > Registration

4) Select the Manual Registration drop-down

5) Enter the User ID and Password of your camera in the upper-right corner of the window

6) Select the Protocol (ONVIF or RTSP).  Select the Channel that the camera will be assigned to on the HDSpotMod

7) If you are using ONVIF, you will need to manually enter the IP address of the camera.  If you are using RTSP, you will need to manually enter the RTSP stream of the camera.

Note: Digital Watchdog Camera Port is set as 80.  If the camera is using a different port value, specify the port number at the end of the address (Ex:  http://192.168.1.100:8245).

8) Click Manual Add, then click Save.  The HDSpotMod Web Client will not display a confirmation message.  Confirm that the camera is added and streaming by checking with a display monitor that is directly connected to the HDSpotMod.

Note:  If you need to remove a camera from the HDSpotMod, you can do so under the Camera Management menu.
