Eagle Eye Application Note – AN0029


Adjusting Camera Settings Through Camera Tunnels



Click the banner to view the full Application Note.

This Application Note is intended for administrators of the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS that have a need to adjust camera settings which aren’t available directly from the browser interface of the VMS and want to learn how this is securely accomplished using camera tunneling.

There may be the occasional need to modify camera level features directly in the camera browser.  In order to do this securely - either locally or remotely - a direct tunnel into the camera is required. The Eagle Eye VMS has the ability to tunnel directly into a camera’s web interface to make changes to the camera that may not currently be supported by the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS directly. 



Use a VPN connection via SSH Tunneling to access your Camera Web interface in a secure way. SSH (Secure Shell) is a protocol that allows you to access a remote host. SSH is a cryptographic network protocol for operating network services securely over an unsecured network and one of its most notable applications is remotely logging in via secure method.


Independent of the Bridge, the Eagle Eye Web and Mobile Applications for PCs, tablets, and phones also need to connect to the cloud to retrieve video and configure settings.


The ports required for this are as follows: 


tcp/80          # HTTP -> SSL Redirect Only

tcp/443        # Web user interface

tcp/50000-60000    # Secure video transfer

The IPs are generally the same as for the bridge; Tunneling a Camera will require tcp/50000-60000 to be allowed or opened on the local Firewall as outbound traffic. A random port within the 50000 to 60000 range will be opened upon initiation of the Camera Tunnel.
