You add the user that CAM-AI is later going to use and click save. Write down the username and password you selected, you will need them later. Also, write down for later: The preferred data transfer protocol is RTMP, using port 1935. That’s it, your camera should now be prepared to connect to CAM-AI. You can close all open windows, pull the network cable between your router and your camera, and find a good place for your wireless device. Be aware that the IP address might now be different. Make sure that you have a shared port 1935 for this IP on your router, as explained here.

Now you are ready to connect your camera following our instructions for our webserver app or your own server. Your camera type will be available in the list for installation.

Our software will automatically generate the URL for your RTMP stream:
