Setting up Insteon Outdoor HD Camera to Record to PC

Last Updated: Aug 15, 2016 10:32AM PDT
Step by Step Guide
This takes into account that you have already set up the camera past the initial settings.
Start by logging in to your Insteon HD Outdoor Camera through its local IP address through Internet Explorer, then go to Internet Options via the gear in the upper right hand. 


Select Security, then go to Trusted Sites and select Sites to add in a new IP address.


By default your cameras IP address should auto populate.  If not you will manually type it in. You may need to uncheck the “Require Server Verification (Https:) for all sites in this zone depending on your settings.  Once complete click on Close, then Ok.


At this point you will need to close down Internet Explorer and re-launch it so the new settings can take effect.  After you have logged back into the camera, go to Alarms, and Motion Detection.
Check the box for Enable and then highlight the portion of the schedule you want the camera monitor for. If you do not set a schedule, it will not record. To Set your schedule, select the box that corresponds to the time. In the example shown se have selected all. So the entire scheduled is highlighted (red).  Select Save.

 Next go to Record and select Storage Location, and then set your path under Local Recording Location. Select Save.
(Recording Location is only used for Scheduled Recordings (When you want to record for a set time period without motion detection.  This Function requires an FTP server.)

Go to Local Alarm Recording. Check to enable recording, then set the length of the recording under Local Alarm Recording Time. Once this has been set, Save.

Go back to the Live Video page and test the camera for motion. You should see a green dot in the bottom right hand corner of the video feed indicating it is recording.
Please note that you must be on this page for it to detect and record motion. Your camera must be up in internet explorer viewing this feed, as local recording is based off of an Active X process that requires Internet Explorer to execute.
