Announce Network Data
If this parameter is enabled, the camera will announce its network configuration (IP address, network mask, MAC address; see Ethernet Interface) over the speaker every time the camera starts up. If the announcement is enabled, the announcement can be started by e.g. pressing the R button of the camera (to start DHCP or during runtime) or by clicking on a softbutton of the user interface.
Deactivating the Microphone
Deactivating a camera's microphone may become necessary in order to protect the privacy or for other reasons. You can now permanently and irreversibly deactivate the microphone in the Loudspeaker and Microphone dialog.
- Click on the More button.
- Click on the disable link that appears in the first paragraph of the explanation.
- Follow the instructions in the Permanently Disable the Camera Microphone section.
||This deactivation is permanent and removes all functions that involve the microphone and cannot be reversed even by MOBOTIX engineers.
Storing the Configuration
Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.
Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
