Add the camera to a Brinks Home Security (or Alarm.com) account

To add a camera, connect the camera to your wireless network and then enroll the camera to the Brinks Home Security (or Alarm.com) account. There are three local options for connecting the ADC-V622 to the network: Ethernet Mode, Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Mode, and Access Point (AP) Mode. 

Important: When the camera is powered up, always allow at least two minutes before pressing any camera buttons. The first time a new video camera is powered up, it automatically goes into AP mode (flashing white) after two minutes. 

AP mode

To ensure sufficient Wi-Fi signal, complete these steps with the camera near its final location but prior to mounting.

  1. Connect the camera’s AC power adapter and plug it into a non-switched outlet. Allow at least two minutes before pressing any camera buttons. 
  2. Press the Menu button and use the Volume buttons to scroll to Access Point mode (follow the audio prompts or look for a flashing white LED).
  3. Press the Menu button to activate Access Point Mode. The LED flashes white.
  4. On an Internet-enabled device, connect to the Wi-Fi network ADC-V622 (XX:XX:XX) where XX:XX:XX is the last six digits of the ADC-V622’s MAC address, which is located on the back of the device near the power cord.
  5. On the same device, open a web browser and enter http://v622install or 192.168.1.1 in the web address field. Follow the on-screen instructions to add the ADC-V622 to the Wi-Fi network.
