This guide explains how to reset Camius IP cameras that have a reset button. The following camera models are applicable:

There are three ways to reset the IP camera to default (factory) settings:

  • by pressing a reset button
  • by loading default settings from the IP cameras’ web browser interface
  • through the Camius NVR or DVR

Option 1 – Resetting the IP camera using the camera’s reset button

If you have forgotten your IP camera’s password, you can reset it by following these steps:

  1. Locate the reset button on the camera.
  2. Remove the ‘RESET/micro SD’ cover and use a paper clip to press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds.
  3. The camera will restart, and you can then set a new password. If you reset a camera connected to the Camius NVR’s PoE port, you do not need to set a new password for the camera.
  4. The NVR will assign a unique IP address to the camera, allowing you to access and control it through the NVR only.
