    1. If you have purchased a license already, you don't need to do so again
    2. You may have been given a coupon code to redeem, instead of a license. A camera license will start with the letters PN and be a 15- character alphanumeric number such as PNABC123456789 A coupon code will be in the form of CCIP-ABSC-1234
    3. If you have a serial number, proceed to step 4
    4. If you have a coupon code, you must purchase a license from the store in step 3, and use the coupon code as a form of payment.
  4. Use the Panasonic EZ IP+ software to find your camera on the network
  5. Identify your camera, and press the Activation button on the lower menu, as shown here:
