The WiLife Pro Power Injector delivers power over the Ethernet
lines to each WiLife Pro Camera.
Complete First Run Wizard
Create a new account or use an existing account for WiLife Online access.
The wizard automatically runs as you start the Command
Center for the first time. It walks you through the initial setup
of system options and configuration of your cameras.
Install WiLife Software from CD
By default, the cameras will search for an IP
address using DHCP. While the cameras are
searching for an IP address, all three status
LEDs will flash. When the camera has obtained
an address, the bottom status LED shows solid.
Use DHCP whenever possible. But, if you must assign static IP
addresses, follow these instructions:
Using Fixed IP Addresses (Advanced)
Connect the WiLife Pro Injector power supply. Consider using a
UPS to protect against brief power outages.
Connect one patch cable (provided with camera) for each camera
from the LAN to the “To Network” injector ports 1 through 6.
Connect WiLife Pro Cameras to injector “To Camera” ports, using
the same ports connected to LAN.
You can get additional information by reading the WiLifeSetIPAddress PDF.
Enter the IP addresses and click Set to write the address to the cameras.
Select the LAN Network Card and click Start to search for your cameras.
Copy the WiLifeSetIPAddress EXE and PDF to the PC hard drive.
The files are located on the WiLife CD in the bin directory.
Run the WiLifeSetIPAddress program, first ensuring the WiLife Command
Center is not running.
You can now proceed to step 2.
The WiLife Command Center Software turns a standard
PC into a powerful video security control station.
To install the software, ensure you are logged in as Administrator.
The installation process takes several minutes and includes
powerful tools like Microsoft .NET 2.0, UPnP, and Intel IPP.
You are required to reboot the machine after the install to ensure
the drivers are properly recognized by Windows.
Select the WiLife Pro Power Injector networking option.
Confirm Online Direct Connect
There are two methods for connecting to the WiLife Online
servers - direct and relay. Direct mode is the best.

Pro Install Notes and Cautions

In relay mode, video is relayed through WiLife servers, avoiding
router and firewall setup - but, it includes limits on viewing time.
In direct mode, video is routed directly to remote viewing clients,
enabling unlimited viewing time and faster connections.
By default, WiLife will automatically attempt to configure the
local router and firewall to enable Direct connections using
UPnP. In most cases, it is successful.
To verify that WiLife was able to configure your router, open
the Setup...Online tab in the Command Center and look for
the connection mode. If it reads Direct Mode, you are done.
Follow these steps to manually configure your system for
Direct Connections:
Enable UPnP on your firewall or router, if possible or ...
On your router, map ports 20570 to 20572 (TCP) to the computer's
IP address. You may find the site www.portforward.com helpful.
Restart the WiLife Command Center and recheck the Online Status.
You can find additional information in the WiLife Support
online knowledgebase at www.wilife.com/support.
Take the time to carefully place and hide your cables. We have
included a thin silver cable and cable coupler to help you
create an attractive install.
If you move cameras from one system to another, you should
always reset the cameras using a paperclip.
