Introduction: HOW TO CONNECT CCTV TO ANDROID OR IPhone ?

HELLO MY FELLOW !

I AM WAQAR

here, I'll show you how to connect your CCTV DVR to android or iPhone .

WHY ?

ANSWER= you have CCTV cameras in your house or office and you have to watch the footages in your big monitor which is not so easy .

so, that is why you need connect to the smartphone or iPhone to watch the footages instantly

just over WI-FI.

WHEN ?

whenever you want see the footages (bathroom,kitchen,bedroom or any room)

Step 1: CONNECT DVR TO MONITOR DIRECTLY

Just connect your CCTV DVR to monitor via VGA or HDMI CABLE

Step 2: CONFIGURE CCTV DVR SETTINGS

For configuration

GO TO > SETTING OR CONFIGURATION > NETWORK

In the network section of your DVR

You have to set STATIC IP by disabling OBTAIN IP AUTOMATICALLY

Just put

IP address = 192.168.1.7

Subnet mask= 255.255.255.000

Gateway = 192.168.1.1

HTTP PORT= 80

(Just put above given data then click on apply or save, then reboot the DVR)

DVR part is done.

Step 3: NOW CONFIGURE WIFI ROUTER FOR DVR

Open your PC

Connect to WIFI via LAN OR WI-FI

OPEN INTERNET EXPLORER AND TYPE 192.168.1.1 OR 192.168.0.1 in address bar section.(don’t use chrome it may cause some problem)

For opening router’s homepage (you will be prompted for id and password get it from user manual of Wi-Fi router)

Find section of port forwarding there and put the following by adding new entry:

Port=80 or 8080

IP address =192.168.1.7

Protocol= all

Leave other default

(Save the entry and click on enable all then just reboot your Wi-Fi router)

Step 4: CONNECT DVR TO WIFI VIA LAN CABLE

Just remove the VGA OR HDMI cable

And plug in LAN CABLE TO WIFI TO DVR

Step 5: CHECK THE SETTINGS

Just open your pc

Then open internet explorer

Type 192.168.1.7:80 in the address section then hit ENTER

(You may be prompt for downloading and installing something just do it as it says)

NOW, you have put ID & PASSWORD of DVR page (get it from user manual of DVR)

In my case it is [id=admin & password=password]

IF YOU CAN SEE LIVE FOOTAGES

HURRY YOU ARE DONE….

Step 6: NOW CONNECT TO ANDROID PHONE

You may close pc now (everything is done)

CONNECT YOUR SMARTPHONE TO THE WIFI NETWORK

GO TO PLAY STORE

SEARCH FOR SUPERLIVEHD &INSTALL IT

OPEN THE APP PUT THE FOLLOWING:

NETWORK = WIFI

IP &PORT =192.168.1.7:80

ID =Admin (find it in your DVR user manual)

PASSWORD=password (find it in your DVR user manual)

Just click on enter or login

We are done

LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE FACING ANY PROBLEM.

This will not work from a mobile phone from outside your house, it may only work when you are connected to your wifi at home. This is simply because for it to work from outside you need to specify your external IP Address (whatismyip.com) 192.168.xx.yy is an internal IP only, used by pretty much everyone, so your phone will never know whose device to connect to. The problem with specifying an external IP is that IP changes constantly by your Internet Provider, therefore it is not a static IP. You can buy a subscriiption from dydns.org to get is directed to your home IP, thus even if your IP changes you will still get access via your DYDNS account.

Thank you for this... I have been able to connect via WiFi but not away from home. I have a DYDNS account and host name. I’ve entered all Hostname username and password settings on my router and it gives me an “error” status. Why can this be? I am missing a step on configuring my router and i can’t figure it out 😩 help

you need to google or check on Youtube how to set up a port forwarding onto your home Router. It's on a different location on different routers. Forward that Port onto the Port you have opened on your CCTV DVR. If you are not sure which one it is, just create a port forward to all open ports that are on your DVR System.
