Swann HD-820CAM

I picked up a Swann HD-820CAM (NHD-820)

SWANN SWNHD-820CAM-US 1080p HD Network Security Camera for Swann’s 1080p NVRs

Manufacturer Link: http://www.swann.com/us/swnhd-820cam

You don’t need a Swann receiver to use it.

Plug it into a switch that supports PoE. I’m using this one and can confirm it will run the IP Camera:

TP-LINK TL-SF1008P 10/100Mbps 8-Port PoE Switch, 4 POE ports, IEEE 802.3af, 53W

Set your computer to an IP in (i.e. and go to in your browser. That’s the default IP of the camera.
Username is admin
Password is 12345

You can change it’s IP in the web management to whatever you want.

To stream via VLC use RTSP:

Media->Open Network Stream
type in one of the following:

Main (1st) Stream (720p or 1080p)

Sub (2nd) Stream (240p or 480p)

I can also confirm that Wowza Streaming Engine will read in the RTSP streams above and properly converts them to RTMP (which is what Flash requires).

Here’s all the screens in the web management:
