Installing the VHD-V61 camera

Before you install the camera, read the following safety information:

  • Do not subject the camera to rain or moisture
  • To prevent electric shock, do not remove screws or covers of the camera. There are no self-serviceable parts. Refer to qualified service personnel for servicing

Mounting the camera upside down

From 1st January 2019, VHD-V61 cameras shipped with new StarLeaf room system orders can be mounted upside down if required. The camera image must be flipped which you can configure over IP.

To support upside-down mounting, the camera must have the minimum requirements below:

Webware versionv1.4.4

To flip the image for upside-down mounting:

  1. Ensure you have connected the camera to the screen using the HDMI cable.
  2. Look at the label on the base of the camera. It will be similar to this:
  3. Connect an Ethernet cable between your computer and the LAN port on the camera.
  4. Configure your computer’s network adaptor settings such that it is in the same network as that used by the camera (as shown on the label). For example,
  5. In a browser, go to the IP address of the camera and log in using the details on the label. You will see the web interface of the camera.

    1. Press the down arrow two times to Image.
    2. Press the home button to select.
