Q: How to connect an IP camera to Surveillance Center with ONVIF?


#Surveillance # IP camera # ONVIF

ONVIF Profile S and Profile T certification allows Surveillance Center to further expand compatibility for network IP cameras via the ONVIF standard protocol. That means system integrators and home users can take advantage of boosted interoperability and more flexible installation with standard features like device search, live viewing and recording, PTZ functionality control, in-camera motion detection and digital input, or camera video settings.

To connect an IP camera via ONVIF, please make sure the device is compliant with ONVIF Profile S or Profile T.

A list of ONVIF compliant devices can be found via the link below:

Step 1

  • Go to Surveillance Center Settings Camera and click [Add].

Step 2

  • Select the option to search for the devices on your local network.

Step 3

  • Select a camera from the result list that you want to connect to Surveillance Center.

Step 4

  • Click [Test] and see if the configurations are working properly.
  • If you see a snapshot or green check mark, then it should be working properly.


If the device cannot be discovered, please go back to Step 2 and select the option that allows you to enter the camera information manually.

Now you can select [ONVIF] for brand and input the following information for the rest of the fields:

  • IP/Host: Camera's IP or Host
  • Port: Camera's HTTP port (normally 80)
  • Username/Password: Camera's administrator username and password.
