VEO Wireless Observer RS232 serial cable help please

Hi I have purchased this camera off eBay but alas it did not come with the serial cable, I have bought 1 serial cable (2 wires inside) but this did not work, so i am assuming its some special cable? Anyway, can someone please help me to locate a RS232 serial cable that will work for this unit? Failing that the pin outs would be equally helpfull? Kind rgards Bashy

    I have a Veo Observer Network Camera. It was working fine until I was out of town for several months and also changed ISP. Camera stopped working, of course. I presume I need to reset it. I cannot find the RS 232 Serial Cable that it came with to connect to PC. The jack on the camera looks like an audio jack, I don't know what the other end should look like (PC side). I could not find any such cable at Fry's Electronics. There was a solution offered on this site about pin-outs but I did not understand it. I would appreciate if someone could help.

Bashy, a long shot is to get a 3,5mm stereo plug and RS232 female connector, wire it up, you only need pin 2,3 and 5 from the RS232 to 3,5mm plug (see photos).

change over 2 and 3 (on one end) if doesn't work firs time VEO Wireless Observer RS232 serial cable help plea - clip.gif clip.gif 35 copy.jpg (41.54 KB, 200x200 - viewed 122 times.)

Did you configure the webcam to be accessible over the internet? The IP address that you are using in your home network for the cam is only valid there (I assume you are running on a workgroup).

Since the VEO motion detector is no longer available, will another motion detector product work?

The motion detector is available new on Ebay right now from an electronics surplus dealer. Just type in 12v motion as your search and at least half a dozen come up. I bought one and it was new in the box with the instructions.

No Wireless Camera Not Found

While you had it plugged in the serial port you should have set the SSID name for the camera? You may have to enter this manually to find the camera. If it is not set to broadcast this SSID, it will work but you must put it in the wireless connection settings.

Make sure that you are using Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher. If you are experiencing problems, try upgrading to the latest version of Microsoft's Internet Explorer from the Microsoft webpage at: Method A: 1) Go to C:\Program Files\Veo Observer Studio and delete the files: xrlknc.dll and xrlkncd.dll. 2) After the files have been deleted, try using the Veo Observer Studio again. --or-- Method B: 1) Uninstall the Veo Observer Studio from your computer. 2) Download the latest version of the Veo Observer Studio from our webpage at: if it still has the same promblem refer to your display or the grafix recommendations
