This post talks about how to configure PercepCam J1 Facial Recognition Camera. The face capture camera PercepCam J1 has a built in web server that we can configure face detection parameters and where to ftp the captured face images.
First, we need to find out the IP address of the camera. There are two ways for find out the local IP address of J1 camera.
If you only have one J1 camera. You can use the following method.
There is a great tool named ONVIF device manager that is freely available downloadable from here.
Install the software, and we can find the IP address, view the video and zoom the camera!
If you have more than one camera, you can add the J1 camera to percepcam app, and find the local IP address of J1 camera using the percepcam app.

We will be able to access the web server on the camera itself.
To configure the ftp, we go to config page:
