Emergency Factory Reset Procedure for an IQeye 700-series IP camera

This is a short, simple guide explaining the emergency factory reset procedure for an IQeye 700-series IP camera.

An emergency factory reset procedure is useful if you want to reset your camera back to its default settings or if you have forgotten the password.

Step 1

Remove the power from the camera. This will either be the Ethernet cable if you are using PoE or powering off the PSU.

Step 2

Locate the reset button on the back of the camera. On an IQeye 700-series camera the reset button is a small circular recess between the Ethernet and power connector. See diagram below, the reset button is highlighted in the red circle:

Step 3

Using something with a point such as a straightened paper clip, push and hold the reset button. You should be able to feel the button depress when you do this.

Step 4

While continuing to hold the reset button, apply power to the camera. Keep the reset button pressed for 10 seconds.

Step 5

Release the button and give the camera time to re-boot.

Step 6

Use the setup tool found on the CDROM to access the camera and setup the network details. The default administator login is as follows:

username: root
password: system
