You can access your camera's live video feed from your web browser or through software on your computer, your tablet, or your smart phone. To access your camera via Ethernet, to your desktop computer - Follow steps 1 – 3. To access your camera via Wi-Fi, to your notebook via Wi-Fi and cell-phone via Wi-Fi - Follow steps 1 – 4. To access your camera via W-Fi, to cell-phone via 3G/4G and computer over the Internet - Follow steps 1- 4 and then see the full owner's manual for dynamic DNS and port forwarding.
Once you have your camera configured, you may access your camera by either of these methods:

- Once you are viewing your camera's live video, you can save the web address as a favorite. Then you can use that saved favorite without using the ipcamsetup program each time.
- In your web browser, type the IP address of your camera as a new web address.
- To use a friendly name like "mylivingroom.dyndyns.org", see your owner's manual for how to configure your camera to use Dynamic DNS.
- To see your camera over the Internet, or from a cell phone through a 3G/4G connection, see the owner's manual to configure your router for Port Forwarding.
