The Axis corporation manufactures a line of small video surveillance cameras that connect to an IP (Internet Provider) network so the user can access the footage from anywhere there is an Internet connection. These cameras are high-tech devices that require passwords to access. And like many other electronic devices these cameras need to be reset for security reasons or if you've forgotten your Password. The good news is that resetting an Axis camera is a fairly easy process.


Step 1

Use your fingers to unplug the power cable from the port in the back of your Axis camera.
