How to Setup the TENVIS IPROBOT3 with Cloud recording
The Tenvis IPROBOT3 is another Tenvis IP camera that gets great reviews. This camera sells for about $80 bucks on amazon so it won’t break the bank compared to other IP cameras (IP cameras can get really expensive). It also has a four and half star rating so users are clearly pretty happy with the product. The best part of the product, of course, is that it works perfectly with Sensr.net’s cloud recording software!
Setting this up can be a little but of a pain but follow this tutorial and you’ll be watching your stuff from anywhere in the world with Sensr.net in no time. The first step is to just get your Tenvis hooked up to the internet and to a power source. That’s pretty self explanatory but getting hooked up to wifi can be hard. If you can’t get hooked up to wifi just plug into ethernet, you can always use the network access page to get to wifi later.
Once you are on wifi just type your camera’s IP address into your computer’s internet browser and it will take you to the network access page. If you don’t know how to find your camera’s IP address just follow the steps in this tutorial. If the network access page asks you for a username and password the username is admin and there is no password. You should probably change those for obvious reasons. Once you get onto the access page it will look like this:
Once you get here you have full control over the camera. One weird and important thing to note is that you only get access to all of the camera’s features if you use IE. I don’t like IE because its IE and no one likes it so I just skipped those features. Once you’ve gotten to the network access page you are ready to add a new camera on Sensr.net.
Simply log into your Sensr.net account click the Add Camera button. Sensr.net has a free one week trial, so give it a go and see if it works for you. (It’s free to setup an account with Sensr.net. Camera monitoring starts at $9.95/month after your free trial is up.) Once you login you’ll see a page like this:
2. Next you’ll see a page like this where you can set the timezone for your camera, give it a name, and tell us the model. Cameras default to private but you can make them public if you want to share them with the world.
After that, we’ll generate some FTP credentials for your server. This generates a login for your Tenvis JPT3815W to where it can upload images via FTP. This tells your camera where to upload the images. The important information here is:
- FTP Server
- FTP User name
- FTP Password
Save these so we can add them to your camera later.
Now that you have your FTP credentials head back to the network access page. Click on the settings button and head over to FTP settings. The page should look like this:
Copy and paste the credentials you got from Sensr.net into the fields here so you don’t make any mistakes. Save that and go back to the main network access page. Change the video FPS to one. Boom! You’ve just setup cloud recording. Go back to Sensr.net and your page should look like this:
Now that you’re on Sensr.net we’ll archive all the motion events, giving you 30 days of archives, SMS and email alerts, guest access, and a whole lot more. You can view the live stream on our website or in our apps.
