2. How to set IoT

(1) Device Setting

Step 1: After logging into the web, go to “Advanced Settings“→ “IoT“. Check the checkbox Enable IoT and IoT function will be enabled automatically without clicking the save button.


Step 2: Configure Radios Settings.

Currently our IoT camera supports three IoT frequency bands of 915M (The corresponding channel plan is US915/AU915/KR920/AS923/AS923-2), 868M (The corresponding channel plan is IN865/EU868/RU864) and 470M (The corresponding channel plan is CN470). Before buying the camera, you need to contact our sales to choose the frequency band that is supported in your country.

For example, here I choose the IoT camera with the frequency bands of 915M or reference document regional parameters for LoRaWAN, and it will show that the current channel plan is US915 on the camera’s web. 

Note: Usually you can directly use the default settings without configuring Radio Settings. If you need to customize some radio settings, you can click the Edit button to make further settings as shown below.

 

Please refer to the meaning of the options as follows:

Note:

The configurations here should be the same with those in End Device.


Step 3: Add and manage End Devices.


Please refer to the meaning of the options as follows:

Note:

① Device Name and Device EUI cannot be repeated.

② Device EUI, Application Key, Device Address, Network Session Key and Application Session Key should be consistent with the configuration of End Device.

③ Uplink Frame-counter and Downlink Frame-counter can be reset only in ABP mode.

Step 4: Sensor Settings. You can enter sensor configuration page by clicking . After the configuration is finished, you can click to save your configuration or click  to cancel your configuration.

 

Please refer to the meaning of the options as follows

Note:

①The channel ID and Sign should be consistent with those in End Device.

②Decimal Place is set according to the properties of the sensor. For example, you need to set this value to 1 to get the correct temperature when using the Milesight temperature sensor.

Step 5: You can click  to modify the configuration in End Device Management.

Step 6: You can click  to delete the device you added.

(2) Alarm Setting


Step 1: Select the alarm rule that you want to set and you can configure four kinds of rules.

Step 2: Check the checkbox to enable Alarm Rules. 

Step 3: Click  to select the sensor to alarm.

Step 4: Set threshold for the selected sensor. 

When the data reaches the critical value, the alarms will be triggered. Both upper and lower thresholds are configurable. You can also only configure upper or lower threshold.

Step 5: Click  to set the alarm schedule for IoT.

Step 6: Set Alarm Action.

Please refer to the meaning of the options as follows

Step7: Set alarm settings.

Please refer to the meaning of the options as follows

For example, here I set the alarm action as OSD blink with an interval of 3 seconds, when the data reaches the critical value, the alarms will be triggered, we will see the OSD blinking on the live view interface.


3. How to use 5G Camera

Step 1: Insert the SIM card into the SIM card slot at the bottom of the camera, as shown below:

Note:

① It supports Nano SIM for SIM card slot.

② For 5G camera, the SD card slot is inside the camera, as shown below:

Step 2: After logging into the web, go to “Basic Settings“→ “Network“→ “Cellular“, you can check the cellular status and set the cellular settings here, as shown below.

\Note: If you use the 5G camera for the first time, it is necessary to connect the camera through the network port to access the webpage of the camera for basic configuration.

Step3: Fill in the information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to Cellular Settings interface, then click Save to access the network successfully.

Please refer to the meaning of the options as follows

Note: For some Internet Service Provider, users only need to insert the SIM card directly to 

access the 5G network without additional configuration.

Step4: After connecting to the network successfully, you can check the cellular status 

information on Cellular Status interface, as shown below.

Please refer to the meaning of the options as follows:

Step 5: Set the schedule, the 5G network will take effect according to the schedule you set.

Step 6: After configuring the cellular settings, you also need to complete other basic configurations of the camera if needed, such as events, recordings, etc.

Step 7: After completing the basic settings of the camera, you can access the camera using 5G network without connecting the network cable. 

4. Compatibility between 5G AIoT Camera and Milesight back-end

After completing the basic settings of 5G AIoT camera, you can access the camera through the Milesight back-end using 5G network without connecting the network cable. 

  • For Milesight CMS, it supports adding 5G camera via P2P using 5G network, and then the parameter of 5G and IoT can be configured.
