NetCamPro Setup Cloud Recording

Cloud Prerequisites

At this point we assume that your camera has Internet connectivity and that it can be accessed by the NetCamProLive app on your phone or tablet.

We recommend using a computer for setting up Cloud. If you’re planning on using your iPhone or iPad to set up Cloud, please install Dropbox , Google Drive , or iCloud first on your Apple mobile device.

Step 1: Log in to your camera

Every NetCamPro camera has a built in administration web site. This web site can be accessed with a web browser by entering the camera’s IP address in the URL field.

Enter your camera’s IP address into your browser’s URL field (ex.: 192.168.0.95) and click on Settings.

For best compatibility

with the Cloud we recommend using Google Chrome on your Mac, Windows PC, or mobile device.

Where's the IP address?

For a new camera, use the camera’s default username and password (admin/admin“).

If you are still using the default password we highly encourage you to Change Your Password before continuing with Cloud Setup

Step 2: Backup the configuration file

On Apple iOS devices please use Dropbox, Google Drive, or iCloud to save the config.cfg file.

On the right hand side, click on Tools (1), Backup or Reset (2), then Backup (3) and save the file called config.cfg on your device.

Do not attempt to open the config.cfg. This file is specific to the cameras and not recognized by other applications. Opening this file might damage it. Rename the file for setting up multiple cameras.

Save the file config.cfg in your Downloads folder.

Step 3: Create the new configuration file

Open a new tab in your browser and go to: https://cloud.netcampro.com/wizard.php

Alternatively type in cloud.netcampro.com and click Create an account.

The Cloud Setup Wizard converts your camera’s config.cfg into a second file called new_config.cfg. Enter your Account Email (1), choose the previously downloaded config.cfg (2), accept the terms and conditions (3), and click Upload (4).

Download and save the new_config.cfg file. Please do not attempt to open the file. Click Return to Home Page.

If you have more than one camera you can rename the config.cfg and new_config.cfg to differentiate between cameras, e.g. cam1-config.cfg and cam1-new_config.cfg.

Saving your new_config.cfg file alongside your initial config.cfg.

On your Network Camera Home Page, click on Tools (1), then Backup or Reset (2). Click Choose File (3) and locate the new_config.cfg, then click Restore (4).
