3.0 Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is included on the installation CD?

A: Camera Setup and Camera Live utilities for PC, Mac and the User Manual, Quick Guide


Q: Is software available for Mac OS?

A: The Camera Live software Mac OS version is available.


Q: How do I know which outdoor camera model I have?

A: The product packaging and sticker on the product cable shows the model number. Model

NC-316W/NC-326W/NC-336W support wireless connectivity. Model NC-316P/326P/336P support

Power-over-Ethernet (POE) and model NC-316PW/NC-326PW/NC-336PW support both wireless and POE connectivity.


Q: Can the outdoor cameras be powered over PoE?

A: Yes, our outdoor cameras including the NC-326PW HD 720P, NC-336PW HD 1080P have PoE. If you use a PoE injector such as Dlink DWL-P200, you can operate the camera with wired or wireless networking. Or you can use a PoE network switch such as the Netgear GS-108PE to provide power and networking connectivity over a single Cat5e cable, up to a distance of 300 ft. Please note that only a PoE injector (and not a switch) should be used if you intend to use the wireless networking feature of the camera, while you can use either a switch or PoE injector to use wired networking.


Q: How long is the mounting bracket? I'm thinking about attaching it to the top of the camera...

A: The included mounting bracket is designed to attach either from the top or the bottom. There is a sunshield at the top of the camera. If you like to use it even with the camera mounted from the top, it can be done very easily. We include a special hex nut with each camera. This hex nut can replace one of the 2 sunshield mounting screws, and then the camera mount can attach from the top to this hex nut, even with the sunshield in place. The size of the mount from wall or ceiling surface to the ball joint is 4", and the silver mounting rod that attaches to the camera is 2.5". So if the mount is attached from the top and if the mounting rod is positioned straight down, the total distance of the camera top to the ceiling is about 6.5". By the way, we use the same standard 1/4"-20 thread that is used for virtually all cameras and tripods sold here in USA, so if you would like to use different mounting hardware, you can.


Q: Do I need to reconfigure the network router to access my camera using my PC or Smartphone when I am not home?

A: No, no firewall or other changes are required to the network router or modem to view your camera using "Anyscene" app from your Smartphone or "Camera Live" from your PC


Q: Can I provide access to someone else to view my camera?

A: Yes, you can. The other user will have to download "Anyscene" application on the Smartphone or install Camera Live application on PC or Mac from the installation CD in the package and you will have to provide the camera UID, Username and Password (Note: it's highly recommended to create additional user names with user level access using Camera Setup Utility See User Manual on the CD for details)


Q: What is the maximum number of cameras that can be viewed using Camera Live application? A: 32 cameras on a PC, 4 cameras on smartphones


Q: Can same camera be viewed on the same computer in more than one browser window? A: Yes

Q: Can "Camera setup" and "Camera live" be used at the same time on the same computer? A: Yes


Q: Can we add Dynamic Domain Name Service (DDNS) in "Camera setup" application to view camera via remote access?

A: Yes it can support DDNS, but if you have installed the apps on your PC and smartphone, then it's not necessary.


Q: Using "Anyscene" Smartphone application, why do I see black screen or why is there a long delay in video displayed on my iPhone, iPad or Android device?

A: The video resolution is too high to be supported by the network bandwidth. Go to camera Settings and change "Video Quality" to Medium or Low.


Q: Can I record audio and video from the camera?

A: Yes, there are a number of available options to record audio/video from this camera to an SD card or a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) see User Manual for more details


Q: Where is the Micro SD card slot on the outdoor camera?

A: To access the Micro SD card slot on the outdoor camera, please bring the camera indoor (in an area of low humidity), then unscrew the entire front part of the camera. It is easiest to do it if you take the sunshield off first. The Micro SD card slot is right under the reset button show below

Please be very careful not to touch the lens. The Micro SD slides into the slot and there is a positive "click" when it is locked in place. If it doesn't want to go in effortless it is probably upside down.

When done, please be careful when screwing the front part back on to make sure the threads are engaging nicely. Do not use any tools, hand tight is good enough.


Q: Can the SD card be accessed remotely?

A: Thanks for your good question. Yes, the MicroSD card can be accessed remotely, you can view the recordings on microSD card through the app Anyscene. And also you can remotely access the micro SD card when you sign in to the web server that is built into the camera. The MicroSD card is not included with each camera. If you happen to prefer using a NAS drive instead of the MicroSD, the same menu on the camera allows you to access the recorded files on the NAS drive remotely as well.


Q: What's the largest microSD card the camera will support?

A: The camera supports MicroSD cards in any size from 1 GB to 128 GB, with any speed class. We recommend class 4 or higher. Please refer to the User Guide or check with us directly regarding instructions for formatting the MicroSD card.


Q: how can I setup "motion detection zone", "schedule", "Email alarm", FTP uploading, NAS, SD card recording, firmware upgrade and more in camera Live app?

A: No, Camera Live app is for multi-cams viewing on one screen and automatic connection with your cameras without DDNS or port forwarding setup. Note: For those advanced feature setup, Proceed to the user manual "camera installation for PC and Mac".

5 thoughts on “Manuals for TriVision IP Security Cameras

  1. I believe the camera must be connected via Ethernet to my computer for setup and then may be operated via Wi-Fi. May I perform setup right at my computer (e.g. 6 foot cable length), then disconnect the cable and power and reposition camera 60 feet away (powered via the AC adaptor)?

  2. Working for 2 years. Then I updated Firmware and it was working, Then updated Windows 10 and it stopped sending emails.
    With a new install of Camera Live it now hangs on “Wireless Testing.”
    Live View is OK.

    Got tip?
