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

At step 6 if you connect the android app to 192.168.1.7:80 you won't be able to see the cam outside your network. Dont you have to connect if to the ip adress of your router or via ddns. The oort forwarding Will redirect the connection to your internal network on port 80 this way you should see the cam anywhere in the world no ?
