Ethernet - 10/100 Mbps (10/100 Base-T)
Wifi - Wifi 802.11 b/g/n
No inbound port forwarding rules are required
VS2 requires DNS and NTP for name resolution and accurate time
Outbound communication to the Samsara Cloud is via TLS over TCP port 443
The camera is configured to acquire an IP address via DHCP, but can be configured with a static IP address on its ethernet port. Wi-Fi connectivity requires DHCP.
Setting up WiFi
To set up Wifi on the device, the controller must be first connected via ethernet cable. Once it is connected, you have to log into the Samsara cloud and navigate to the general settings page. In the connection subsection, you will see the ability to add or edit existing wifi connections:
When adding a network you will be expected to provide the Wifi encryption type and other relevant information:
For best performance of the cloud UI, we recommend a minimum bandwidth of 5 mbps for the connection used by the VS2. This will ensure a stable connection between the Samsara cloud and the local VS2 unit.
The image upload rate is limited to 262 kbps per VS2, which translates into 1 pass and 1 reject uploaded every second. If this upload rate is too much for your network, you can configure this within the settings.
