  • I am having difficulties in setting up my Indoor Storage Options IP Camera (SON-IPC1) with my wireless network, can you help?
    First ensure that you have connected the wireless antenna which comes with the product.
    Connect to the web interface on your camera by typing its IP address into your web browser (preferably Internet Explorer) like this: http://192.168.1.xxx.  (You may need to add a port number if you have changed the default setting, e.g. http://192.168.1.xxx:81)
    When you have logged in, click the "Network" option on the main menu, then choose "Wireless LAN Settings".  Click the "Scan" button to search for available wireless networks. (You may have to search twice for it to pick up any networks.)  Once it has finished scanning, select your chosen network name from the list.
    Ensure the check box next to "Using Wireless LAN" is ticked, and choose the encryption type, then enter your password.  Click "Submit" and the camera will restart.  Wait a couple of minutes for the reboot to complete (the camera will rotate during this time), then disconnect the LAN cable. 
    You should then be able to connect wirelessly.
