Directory Default IP Camera Addresses

Author: Derek Ward, Published on Feb 13, 2015

Initializing IP cameras can be tedious and frustrating, made worse because manufacturers have no standardization, with some supporting DHCP, some using default IP addresses, and some using both.

In this post, we have compiled a list of 14 IP camera manufacturers (including ACTi, Arecont, Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Canon, Dahua, Geovision, Hikvision, Panasonic, Pelco, Samsung, Sony, and Vivotek), what IP addressing they support by default, and the pros and cons to these methods. Additionally, we have included a directory of links to each manufacturer's discovery tool.

Default IP Addresses

This table lists the most common IP camera manufacturers as well as their support for DHCP, default IP address, or both.
