Which Wi-Fi encryption does my camera support?

The Panasonic K-EP104LWE & BL-VT164W support the following network encryptions:

  • WEP method: 64bit/128bit: Encryption is performed with 64 or 128 bit WEP method. We strongly recommend not to use WEP, since this encryption method can be hacked within a few minutes.

  • WPA-PSK (TKIP): TKIP is used to perform encryption. Because TKIP updates the encryption key at set intervals, it has stronger encryption than WEP.

  • WPA-PSK (AES): AES is used to perform encryption. Because AES updates the encryption key at set intervals, it has stronger encryption than WEP. Because WPA-PSK (AES) processes encryption at hardware level, it is able to contain speed losses better than when compared to WPA-PSK (TKIP), but it can only connect to devices that support it.

  • WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES): WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES) is automatically selected according to the encryption method used by the wireless router.

  • WPA2-PSK (TKIP): This method has stronger encryption than WEP and WPA.

  • WPA2-PSK (AES): This method has stronger encryption than WEP and WPA. Because WPA2-PSK (AES) processes encryption at hardware level, it is able to contain speed losses better than when compared to WPA2-PSK (TKIP), but it can only connect to devices that support it.

  • WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES): WPA2-PSK (TKIP) or WPA2-PSK (AES) is automatically selected according to the encryption method used by the wireless router.

  • WPA/WPA2-mixedmode PSK: A combination of WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA-PSK (AES), or WPA2-PSK (TKIP) or WPA2-PSK (AES) is automatically selected according to the encryption method used by the wireless router.

  • No encryption: Data transmission between the wireless router and camera is not encrypted.

  • Default: No encryption
