Setup a security DVR without port forwarding
For years, cctv camera systems have been dependent on port forwarding in order to allow remote access to the security DVR. This has posed a challenge for many small businesses that do not have IT staff. Accessing routers and configuring advanced port forwarding rules seems complicated for the average user. Now with the introduction of P2P to DVR systems, setting up remote access is a much simpler process.
To access the DVR on the web, setup is now only a three step process.
Step 1 – Open the settings menu on the DVR and enable the P2P function.
Step 2 – Browse to the P2P website(each brand will have their own) and create an account
Step 3 – Login in to the P2P website and add your DVR to the device list by simply filling in the serial number and username/password
Now that this is setup, you simply browse to the P2P website whenever you want to view your DVR, log into the website and click on your DVR to live view or access recordings.
