Flux IP Camera Password Reset

Search our FAQ for detailed instructions. Below is a snippet from the FAQ page:

Resetting the password on a Flux IPC will require a PC/Laptop with IPTool3.0 installed.   You will need to connect the PC/Laptop to the same network as the IP camera and run the IPTool3.0.  Within the tool you will scan the network and find all Flux equipment on your network.  Find the mac address of the camera within the listed fields -> Type the mac address in under the "Restore IPC Configuration to Default" option -> Select OK -> If successful message prompts unplug the camera and plug it back in (You have 30 seconds to power cycle the camera or the restore will not work. -> This will default the camera completely and provide swap your IPC's user and password. (Username - admin with a password -123456). 


Password recovery is only possible if you enabled the various password recovery options such as security questions or the certificate during initial setup. Supercode is not used or functional, as it is not secure. If no password recovery options were set or you do not remember the answers to the security questions, you have to factory default the unit by ensuring the unit is powered on and pressing the reset button on the back of the NVR/XVR for 10 seconds until it beeps. The hole can be found under the USB port on some models. For cameras, there's a small cover on the housing that needs removed where they will find the microSD card slot and the reset button for the camera.
