We recently purchased a home and one of the reasons was the security cameras.
The previous owner left the camera's but only the camera's.
They look like Empire Security camera's but in truth I can only see the print on one and know it is a ESC3-IP(1.0).
I have 8 RJ45 connectors connected to a POE switch. Only six of the ports are transmitting and receiving frames. DHCP is configured but no addresses have been assigned. I am trying to us subnet 192.168.2.0.
I downloaded a SecuritySpy to see if the camera's would give some indication of working. I don't see the cameras in the program.
The Empire Security website shows all the signs of being out of business. I can't find any manuals or setup guides online.
I would like to access the camera's, upgrade camera's if required, find an NVR (perhaps use my Synology server) or I can dedicate an old PC.
Without documentation and / or experience this is looking like a long and difficuly process.
If you have the installation software and the upgrade software could you make them available to us?
