    Normally, DDNS setup involves several steps as below:
    Step 1: From the web interface, change the port number for the camera, change it to a different one such as 8010, 8080, 8081, etc (do not use default setting 80), this can also be done on the program tool "IP camera tool".
    Step 2: Port forwarding configuration
    - Open your router's admin console by typing the standard IP address for your router into your web browser's URL box. For most routers, this will be either or
    - Enter your username and password.
    - Go to Port Forwarding or Applications and Gaming tab. Each router will be slightly different, but look for these two options. If you don't see them, try Advanced Settings and look for a Port Forwarding subsection.
    - Enter your desired ports (same as your camera) and the IP address for camera. (IP address can be found via IP Camera Tool, i.e. 192.168.x.x)
    - Save your setting and restart your router to double check.
    Step 3: Once it's set up, you can use the provided DDNS and the port address to access the camera on your browser. (For example,

    1.Internet Explorer freezes up or crashes upon loading the IP Camera interface

    A.1. If you encounter difficulties (freeze-up or crash, etc) when accessing the camera using Internet Explorer (v8.0 or later) try enabling IE's Compatibility Mode (see the image below) and follow these steps:

    a. Either click the compatibility view button that is located directly to the right of the address bar

    b. Or, select the Tools menu, click to select the option Compatibility View (press the ALT key to access the Tools menu if it is not displayed)

    2.No Image: The camera's web page opens but only the controls are displayed and the camera view remains black. Sometimes a message "Disconnected by user" appears.


    A.1. This commonly occurs with this kind of AX controls. By default, Internet Explorer security settings prevent unsigned ActiveX controls from being used. You need to enable the option "Download unsigned ActiveX controls" under the security properties of IE. For increased security, add the camera url in the Trusted Sites and change this security parameter only for this zone.


    Open Internet Explorer.

    Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.

    On the Security tab, click the Custom level button.

    Scroll down the Security Settings list until you see ActiveX controls and plug-ins.

    For Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls, click Enable.

    Scroll down to Download signed ActiveX controls and click Enable or Prompt.

    Scroll down to Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins and click Enable or Prompt.

    Scroll down to Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting and click Enable or Prompt.

    Click OK, and then click OK again until you return to the browser.

    Direct your browser to the camera web page, and click OK/Install when prompted. As soon as your computer finishes downloading and installing the ActiveX remote viewing software, you should see video streaming from the system. If you only see a black area, with numbers, click your browser's refresh button or press F5 on your keyboard.



    I am looking for a camera that I can place in a tree facing the entrance to my home. There isn't a power source . Will this work?
    A: Will not work. All cameras need power, and cameras with night vision are more power hungry than others so batteries are not an option. You can place the adaptor inside the house and just a low voltage line to the camera.



    I want to mount this on my wood structured house w/vinyl siding, above my door. do i need any additional wall mounting brackets?
    A: No the existing bracket will work. Just remember to rotate the image in the set up, otherwise it will be upside down.



    It states it has IR LEDs but does not state it will auto switch to IR mode based on lighting. Does it?
    A: Yes



    Can this camera be used standalone, or must it be part of a security system? I am looking for a camera to watch two pieces of property (two cameras)
    A: It can be used both ways. It is IP-based, so you can access it stand-alone using a web browser, or you can connect it to a computer-based DVR software, such as BlueIris, which knows how to "talk to" IP cameras.
