TRENDnet TV-IP572 Setup with Camcloud

Before starting I suggest reading Quickstart – Setup an IP Camera with Camcloud.

Setting up TRENDnet is easy. Insert the CD and “Install the camera” and follow the prompts. One special note during setup is that it first tries to setup WPS with your router. If you do have that capability great, but otherwise you will see a link to a hard wired installation.

Setting up your TRENDnet with Camcloud:

Eventually you will have an IP that is given to you. This is the IP you can enter in a browser to go to the TRENDnet configuration. I recommend creating a static IP for this camera and more importantly adding DNS servers. Go to the Network tab. Select an IP value, it doesn’t really matter what value you use and make sure to use the appropriate value of your router. This varies depending on the router type, for example:

Default Router Dlink, Netgear Linksys Belkin, SMC US Robotics Airport Extreme
Address 192.168.0.1 192.168.1.1 192.168.2.1 192.168.123.254 10.0.1.1

For DNS use 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

Now let’s setup up motion detection. Going to the Motion Detection tab you need select “Enable Video Motion” and then drag your mouse over the camera window. Motion will be detected within the area that you select, and will be ignored outside it. I normally select the entire window. Hit Apply.

Now go to the Action tab and Video Clip. Remember the credentials you have for your FTP camera, enter them here. Note: Select the “Test” button which will verify you have entered the credentials correctly.

You are all setup for motion detection with Camcloud. Wave in front of your camera and then go to the Camcloud Recordings page or start a Live View.
