The default password for admin: 123456

Better to reset password, you need the tech suppprt

IF your QC Series System came with the Forgot Password Tool, you are required to be connected to the Internet in order to change the "Admin" Password.  Once you have configured the Forgot Password Tool, you can change the "Admin" password.


In case your location does not have access to an Internet connection, you may contact Q-See Technical support to have a previous version of the Firmware flashed.  However, it is highly recommended to have the Forgot Password Tool configured so in the event of a lost or forgotten password you are able to resolve password issues without the need of technical support

You need to register your camera online with Qsee. Then you can work from there to reset the password on it. This applies for many of their other devices, such as DVRs, as well.
