Question

How can I view my IP camera over the Internet?

Answer

Please follow these instructions to connect to the AirSight SD over the Internet. First, you will need to enter your external IP address - visit http://www.whatismyip.com/ on a PC on the same WiFi or Ethernet network as the camera. An example might be http://11.11.11.11/ . You will also need to make sure that port forwarding is enabled on the Media Port and Web Port in Basic Network Settings, from your external IP address to the camera`s internal IP address. For information about port forwarding go to http://portforward.com and look at their FREE guides - note that the software requires TCP connections.

Once you have set that up and can access the camera by entering the IP address and port into a web browser, you can check Device Info and look in DDNS Status for the DDNS address.

If you cannot connect after following these instructions, please write down all of this information before you contact technical support:

  • Your external IP address
  • The internal IP address of your camera
  • The make and model number of your router
  • The Media Port and Web Port you selected
  • The details of any port forwarding rules you have set up for your cameras
