Decide on the location in your home or office that is to be monitored by the Astak IP-700 security camera. Stand the camera on a surface so that the lens is facing in the direction of the area to be monitored; alternately you can screw the bottom of the camera into a tripod and stand the tripod so that it faces the area.
The IP-700 Astek security camera is a Web-based camera that operates independently of a computer. It connects wirelessly to a home network so that the video being streamed can be watched from any computer's Web browser. The instructions that accompany the IP-700 provide the needed procedure for setting up the camera. You do not need any special equipment in order to make the IP-700 functional.
