How to register your Panasonic BB-HNP15 network camera recorder software

So you’ve got a shiny license for Panasonic’s latest version of their software BB-HNP15. This allows you to monitor, record and playback from up to 64 cameras simultaneously and supports features such as MPEG-4 video, high resolution support, graphical display of recorded events, full screen mode etc.

This guide will take you through the relatively simple process of installing the software and registering your license.

System requirements for Panasonic BB-HNP15 (when 2 cameras are connected):

  • Microsoft Windows XP 32bit/Vista 32bit
  • Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher
  • NTFS file system recommended
  • Intel Pentium 4 2.6GHz or greater (or equivalent compatible processor)
  • RAM: 512MB or higher
  • Program installation requires 200MB of free hard disk space

Step 1 – Installing the Software

Insert the CD-ROM into the computer. After a few seconds the installation window will automatically appear. (note that if the installation window does not appear open the contents of the CD-ROM and double-click the ‘autorun.exe’ to run the installation window)

The installation window should look similar to the dialog below:

BB-HNP15 Installation Window

Click the ‘Install Network Camera Recorder with Viewer Software’ button to start viewing the software. Note that administration rights are required to install this software. If you do not have administration rights for your computer please consult your system administrator.

Once you have clicked the button you will see the following dialog after a few seconds:

The software will now install. Once complete you will get the an installation complete message and a shortcut icon will be placed on your desktop. You will need to restart your PC to complete the installation.

Step 2 – Registering your Software

If no license has been registered when the operation window is started, follow the steps below:

Select ‘Help’ > ‘License Registration’ on the menu bar.

The Registration window will open:

Panasonic BB-HNP15 licence registration screen

Enter the registration code and license key. You will find stickers in the box with your registration code and license key.

Once you have entered the information, click the ‘OK’ button. Your registration will be complete.


Keep your registration code and and license key in a safe place. If you lose them there is no way of getting them back.

    Where and how can I purchase a multi-camera license for the Panasonic BB-HNP15 Network Camera Recorder Software and how can i enable the registration menu item so i can enter the new key?

  3. Sumit Diwan says:


    I have recently bought 2 copies of the HNP-15 software for 2 different PC's. I believe that my local service provider has given me the same software on both the PC's as the License Registration Number in the about section of the help menu for both the PC's is the same. He says that it is always the same. Please clear my doubt.

    The spec for the software states XP/Vista 32bit. I don't know of any upgrades to allow it to run on 64bit.

  5. Tom says:

    On Vista 64, the software crashes as soon as it starts. Can I download an updated version?

  6. Greg Innes says:


    The software that comes with the camera is a single camera trial. To add multiple cameras you need to purchase a license. Buying 2 cameras doesn't entitle you to 2 licenses, it only means you have two copies of the free 1-camera version.

    You can however view both your cameras on one page using the camera's own multi-camera page. This is obviously purely monitoring though and not recording.

    I purchased another BL-c111 camera and can't seem to register it so that I can multi-view on software. The Register button is dis-functional. I can view both thru server but not on Network Camera Viewer software.

    Thanks, Joe
