Here we will go over a couple of simple steps to search your network for IP cameras. This is useful when you are adding your own, or checking if someone else has added one.
There have been times where we scan for cameras we have just added, and found cameras the clients didn’t know were there, so it’s good practice to have a quick check now and then.
Advanced IP scanner
If you are looking for a more powerful solution that can scan deeper into your networks and cover more ranges, then we use Advanced IP Scanner.
Firstly you will need to download it from the below link, then once it is installed away you go.
The operation is reasonably straight forward, and to check each IP address, simply add them into IE (internet explorer) as per the web based method and away you go.
The program is free and very well known so there are a lot of resources online on how to get the most out of it.
