D-Link Auto Surveillance VLAN Training – Scenario 1

Usage Scenario I:Single Layer Network with IP Surveillance Solution. In the following slides, we will introduce the first usage scenario and talk about how to implement and configure the Auto Surveillance Network. Usage Scenario 1 is Auto Surveillance VLAN generic deployment. It’s a single layer switched network with IP Surveillance solution as shown in the diagram. In this usage scenario, we have a D-Link Smart III switch as a central hub aggregating D-Link network cameras, a Network Video Recorder(NVR) or VMS server for video recording, here we use NVR, a VMS client for remote playback and for live view and the office network with user computers connecting to Smart III switches. By the way, the DHCP server, which currently exists in the user’s network environment, is for dynamic IP address assignment to client computers. Simply power on the Smart III switch, login to the Smart III switch web management console to enable the Auto Surveillance VLAN feature and connect all components to it and you are done. NVR and D-Link network cameras are added to Auto Surveillance VLAN with high priority. No configuration is required; you only need to enable the Auto Surveillance VLAN feature. By default, the Auto Surveillance VLAN feature is disabled. To enable the feature, first, login to the Smart III switch. Open your browser, input the Smart III switch management IP address to bring up the Smart III switch web management console. The default management IP address of the Smart III switch is 10.90.90.90. Configure your PC IP address properly in order to connect to the management IP address. and log in to the main page using the default password “admin”. Click the “Exit” button to skip the Smart Wizard. Click “Configuration” and click “Auto Surveillance VLAN” in the left pane. In the right pane, click “Enabled” and click “Apply” to activate Auto Surveillance VLAN feature for the Smart III switch, After enabling the Auto Surveillance VLAN, here we connect D-Link network cameras to port 2 and port 3 of the Smart III switch, and NVR to port 10, Let’s verify the configuration of the Auto Surveillance VLAN of the Smart III switch. Let’s go back to the Smart III web management console. In the right pane, you can see that D-Link network cameras and NVR have priority setting set to “High” by default and are recognized by the Smart III switch as “D-Link Surveillance Device” off port 2, port 3 and port 10 as shown in the “Auto Surveillance VLAN Summary” table. For some other devices which are not supported by Auto Surveillance VLAN such as a user laptop, other network cameras…etc., if you want to add those “user-defined devices” to Auto Surveillance VLAN, you have to add its MAC address in “User Defined MAC Settings”. In this usage scenario, we have a PC as the VMS client connected to port 5 of Smart III switch. In the PC command prompt window, use “ipconfig /all” to obtain the PC’s MAC address Go to “Auto Surveillance VLAN Settings” page of the Smart III switch. In “User-defined MAC Settings”, select “VMS client/Remote viewer” as the component type, input a description (it’s an optional step) and input the MAC address you got from PC’s “ipconfig/all” command. You can also input OUI to include a range of MAC addresses. Then press the “Add” button and you will see the manually configured VMS client in the table below. Verify the result in the “Auto Surveillance VLAN Summary” table, you will see that the VMS client is recognized by the Smart III switch. Now the user-defined VMS Client is added to Auto Surveillance VLAN. It has priority setting set to “High” In the above, we introduced the first Auto Surveillance VLAN usage scenario and how you can implement and configure its network.

    Do that mean the the smart switch 3 only work with DLink IP cameras or can perform with any IP cameras
