Web Access using Google Chrome (IP2M-841)

To access your camera on Google Chrome, you will be using our Amcrest Web View Chrome App.

You will need to access your ProHD Camera through the Web User Interface. You can find your camera through your network locally through a Windows or Macintosh Computer using Amcrest IP Config.

With your PC or Mac connected to the same network as your camera, upon downloading and installing Amcrest IP Config, open the application and select the refresh button to populate the camera in the table provided.

Click the “e” located on the far right under “Config” to open the camera in your web browser. Please note that when you click the "e" your default browser will launch. Be sure to be accessing this camera through Google Chrome and not another web browser. (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, etc.)

Login to your camera using the username and password you set from the Wi-Fi Configuration setup on your mobile phone. Default username is typically “admin” with the password set during the initial setup.

(If you setup your camera through Desktop Access then you should be familiar with the Web UI login.)


Once logged in click the link to be redirected to the Chrome App Store in which you will find Amcrest Web View, the application to support the camera through Google Chrome.



It will automatically open the application after installing the application or clicking the open app button. You can find the application through your Google Accounts "My Apps" or using the url "chrome://apps."

 

Once you've opened the application, navigate to the same IP Address of your camera found on the Amcrest IP Config Tool through the url search bar. Clicking "Enter" or select "Go", this will load Web UI to login to your camera like before, but you will now have access to view your camera from the live preview unlike before.
