How can I discover a wifi smartnet camera connected to the LAN by DHCP

Ask Ubuntu Asked by Mices on November 26, 2021

I have a wifi smartnet camera that works with the v380 app for Android/iOS/Windows and I wanna connect it to my motion server running on Ubuntu 18.04.

Although the camera is connected to the LAN and I can view it on my phone I don’t see it listed under DHCP clients on my router’s home page.

How can I discover the IP address of the camera?

One Answer

You can use command-line tool nmap to do a simple scan which will show you IP address and Mac address of devices (assuming you know or can find the mac address of the camera). So if your local network is on 192.168.1.x you would run this command to scan all addresses in the range to

sudo nmap -sn

Or if you are on 192.168.0.x then:

sudo nmap -sn

Install nmap with

sudo apt install nmap
