This job has been sat on my desk at work for about 7 months, looking at Amazon it may be one of these (available in black too). After my luck with the last camera, I was hoping to get into this one too.

Yep The CD is standard Chinese quality CD, it contains the normal useless instruction manual, and some other software I doubt I will look at.

The specification of the camera is listed as:

  • High Resolution 2.0 Megapixe [sic] 1/3″ CMOS Sensor;
  • 1920 X 1080P resolution 25fps real time
  • Zoom 2.8-12mm Lens
  • Support POE, reduce the trouble of cable arrangement.;
  • Support iPhone, Android smart phone;
  • Weatherproof IP66
  • P2P Cloud Function;
  • Support Motion detection, Email Alarm function;
  • Support Multi-Language
  • Day & Night vision;
  • Net weight: 0.5KG;
  • Metal Material Shell;
  • Simple Operation and Easy to Use

Looking around online I am yet to find any helpful information about it, like who made it, and what the password is for Telnet (I guess it has a telnet port). The username and password for the web interface (as listed on the stickers) is admin/admin. (The model number printed on the sticker doesn’t give any helpful results either when googled as 321PMPVBDW or 32IPMPVBDW, 321 PMPV BDW is some kind of car)

The username and password for the web interface (as listed on the stickers) is admin/admin.

Logging in for the first time, I changed the ip address from the default to DHCP controlled, our router hands it a static IP address now which is banned from seeing the internet. like most cameras from china it will only work in Microsoft Internet Explorer, and even then only after you install some random software (something called IPCOCX_PX.exe (IPCOCX_PX instruction manual)).

While the camera is sold as a POE camera, it is often better where the documentation doesn’t tell you what China means by POE to just use a passive injector set like these from Amazon, as they don’t risk blowing the thing up as much.

From the web interface I managed to get the firmware version number out ‘S2L55M_IMX124_X_6.1.2.4’ and software version ‘6.1.2.4’ the S2L55M relates to an Ambarella product (Ambarella SOC), and the IMX124 relates to the Sony sensor.

Looking back at the Port Scan, I worked through the open ports, port 23 is Telnet, port 80 is HTTPD (web console), port 401 seems to just be a Telnet stream with details of the Alarm Function status (s2l_motionDetect.c), ports 402, 403 looks to be a Telnet stream of debug information, port 404 seems to be status of Ethernet (mine is upset due to not seeing the internet), port 405 seems to be the log relating to accessing heart.freeip.com (it wants to access 52.28.192.128, on port 3478). FreeIP.com looks to be a external access site to connect to your own devices from outside using p2p. Port 3478 is the standard STUN port, and looking at the wikipedia article that kind of makes sense.
