How to setup AXIS 210 and 211 Network Camera with Ugolog
This article describes how to use AXIS 210/211 and similar AXIS cameras running v4.XX firmware with Ugolog.com service.
Benefits of using Ugolog.com with AXIS cameras
- No computer required
- No external hardware required
- No network/firewall setup required
- 30-days history
- Frame-by-frame playback
In this article I use M210 with firmware 4.30.
Setup for camera with Firmware 5.0
This article assumes that you know how to do initial configuration of AXIS camera.
Make sure you have compatible firmware on your camera. Should be v4.XX
Configure Ugolog.com as Event Server
Grab your account drop-box URL from Ugolog.com settings
Create new Event Server and copy-paste your drop-box URL there
Configure motion-detection event
Setup motion detection sensitivity
Go to motion detection setup window (only works in Internet Explorer) and set sliders on your right to following values
Object Size = 15
History = 90
Sensitivity = 85
Move/dance/jump in front of the camera while looking at the “activity” window in the bottom left. Camera will draw histogram of detection motion in real time. The thin black line in the bottom of the “activity” window is threshold.
Adjust Sensitivity and Object Size sliders till you get reliable motion detection. You want it set on values that humans do trigger motion, but pets and other obstacles (trees, cars, etc.) do not.
I am not sure how exactly History affects motion detection, so I always keep it at 90.
Optional – match image size in camera and in the player
What to do if your camera does not show up in Ugolog.com WATCH section.
- Re-check steps 3 and 4
- Go to camera system log, copy-paste log details and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
