Select the checkbox next to the listed camera you want to configure.
Check Enable DHCP
Set an administrator password. The use of special characters is not advised.
Click Modify to save the above changes, followed by Refresh.
Double click the IPv4 address listed for the camera you wish to configure. This will allow you to access the camera settings.
Illegal Login Lock
Configuration > Security > Security Service > Uncheck the box next to Enable Illegal Login Lock > Select Save and wait for confirmation.
Disable OSD (On Screen Display)
Configuration > Image > OSD Settings > Uncheck the boxes next to Display Name and Display Date > Select Save and wait for confirmation.
Integration Protocol (ONVIF)
Configuration > Network > Advanced Settings > Integration Protocol. If this option does not exist, configuration of the camera is complete. Otherwise, add an ONVIF user with administrator privileges (you can use the same username/password you set for camera login). Select Save. Check the box next to Enable ONVIF. Select Save.
When adding a Hikvision camera that includes Integration Protocol - provide the ONVIF user credentials to the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS dashboard, not the root username/password.
