Forgotten or lost login credential information needed to access surveillance systems and/or individual components is a fairly common occurrence for A1 customers. Specifically user names, passwords & IP addresses, which are all touched on in this article. The information found on this page will potentially be applicable for a wide-range of system applications and types (including, but not limited to) smaller residential systems on up to enterprise/commercial systems and even Integrators trying to help their customers!
We will warn you that some equipment manufacturers can have ‘advanced product lines’ that also include unique credential protocols. In those cases this information may not/would not apply, and if so, you can also try referencing the installation manual specific to that product. These manuals are often found online by searching your specific part number and then some light digging into those online search listings, but as well the A1 service team can provide manuals to you if you are unable to locate that.
is a chart that lists default credentials by manufacturer/brand name. If you or someone with access to your system
has changed any default values, then the default credentials would no longer
apply unless the equipment in question is first ‘reset’ (resetting equipment is
also something the A1 team is happy to help you if needed). Below is an easily referenced chart for you,
hope it helps but reach out to us if it does not or for any other service needs
you are unable to resolve yourself!
