By default, Camio Box looks for all cameras on the same local subnet. However, if your LAN has a very large subnet (e.g. netmask 255.255.0.0, CIDR /16) then it's impractical to scan. Instead, you can use the LAN IP Range Scan Utility to request the list of MACs and IPs within a specific range of IP addresses accessible from a particular network interface.
LAN IP Range Scan Utility
This utility requires Can Manage permission.
- Open https://camio.com/tools/boxes/utils/?script_id=arp_scan and add the device_id of your Box.
- Enter the ip_start and ip_stop address range you'd like to scan.
- Press Run to request that scan results, which will show the exact command executed by Box to product the results.
- Press the Refresh button about 30 seconds later to see the results.
The results of the scan will like like this example:

The ip_start, ip_stop, and interface are all optional parameters. If they're omitted, then the default interface is used to scan the entire subnet.
