Tech & Setup - Remote Viewing

 
Once you've installed your security camera system, now is the time to set it up to view it on computers, smartphones and tablets, at home, work or on vacation. Just follow our instructions and you'll be remote viewing your DVR in no time. If you have additional questions regarding this process or are having a specific issue not addressed below, please e-mail us at support@cctvsecuritypros.com.
 
Follow these 3 Easy Steps to setup your DVR for Remote Viewing:
 
 



This initial step will guide you through the process of connecting your DVR to your local network, obtaining an internal IP address for the unit and accessing its interface on your computer for the first time. You can watch our video tutorial to the right or download the Step 1: Text Version.

The second step will guide you through the port forwarding process, which opens ports on your router or gateway to allow external access to your DVR. This step can be a little challenging, however we do our best to provide you with the resources to get the job done. Watch our video tutorial to the right or download the Step 2: Text Version.

The final step in the remote viewing setup process is setting up a free host name that keeps track of your external IP address that your Internet service provider assigns to your modem. Since this address changes, the host name will keep track of it for you. Watch our video tutorial or download the Step 3: Text Version.

Once you've completed these 3 steps, you're ready for App Setup.

  • 4 Years after we purchase our system we had problems with iPad viewing due to Router change and IP changes, I contacted CCTV Pros via the support page, within a few minutes I received a call and the problem was fixed. You cannot get any better service that that. Thank You!

  • Spoke to salesman Tim at 812. Needed to get a recorded event to the police. He showed me a way of using my DVR and software that saved my company a lot of money, again. So thankful... not to mention the piece of mind.
