Able to set up and see dvr on the network, locally with no-ip account; but when at another location, tried to view remotely via no-ip account with the provided qsee viewing, not able to log in. . . keep on getting a connect failure with reason (-3) no stream timeout. . . is there a particular setting at remote site/computer that need to set
I had the same exact issue. I was using dyndns to connect, but i found out that when you login in the host, dont put your local ip address of the dvr, but instead put the internet ip address of your network. so instead of 192.168.0.5 for your local put the 184.108.40.206 for the internet address. That fixed my issue. Hope that works for you. Just make sure your username and password is right and the port is set up correct in your router to forward to the local ip of the dvr.
I assume that the cameras are operating fine at the location. This is a little involved for the average do it yourselfer. The computer at the DVR location Is windows I presume. If not we'll stop right here & go our separate ways. Otherwise at the computer desktop go to Start ... run... type in CMD. At the black screen type in "ipconfig" ...enter. Copy as much of that info as you can you will need it. Type exit to exit. If you can view the cameras on site but not away fron there, then you need to get into the router & enter specific info into the " port forwarding" section. All routers are somewhat different but the terminology is the same. How do we get into the router??? that info you copied will tell you the router address to use in the explorer or Firefox address window. Most are usually 192.168.0.1 OR 192.168.1.1 depending upon the mfg. On your DVR software you should have specified an IP address for the dvr if not do so now. Make it something unique like 192.168.0.150 or whatever. Don't forget to enter a port address... 7000 works well for this type of setup. Now back at the router, find the port forwarding section hiding within the software & identify the dvr as such, & enter the IP address that you just assigned to it in the dvr software. Enter the appropriate port number & save the info to the router. Now you can test the settings. Locally you can use either the 192.168# for access or you can use the outside ip address that you got fron the ipconfig screen don't forget the port address.
If all of your settings are accurate it'll work. Also be sure that the Caps lock is on or off. Often you can just go to the windows address bar & type in the address of the dvr ... 192.168.0.150:7000 etc. One thing to keep in mind, the better the upload speed of the dsl connection the better the picture will transmit. Slow upload speeds result in a jerky picture. Verizon FIOS has about the best dsl upload speed... cable is a close second. Good luck

Yes you can definitely view your CCTV footage on your mobile phone at your work via internet. Sentient CCTV DVR basically is a night vision camera. You must know the IP of the camera and IP Video server. Connecting your phone to CCTV camera via the protocol you can view the CCTV footage's in your phone. Night vision cameras are used for surveillance purpose. I would prefer cctv camera with ir illuminator for good image quality in the night time that will clear footage quality in my phone. Recently many new applications have also being launched by security cameras with a view to solve problem you mentioned.
The DVR will be programmed with an IP Address via the DVR main menu function (network settings) and a valid password. The network viewing software (web viewer) you will need to ensure that the IP address is entered correctly for your DVR along with your valid user password.
Check your DVR network settings via the main menu function. You will require a IP Address & Passwod. Ensure your ethernet cable is connect from your DVR to your local computer.
You will then need the network viewer software putting on to your PC (normally provided with your DVR). Ensure the IP Address & your user password are entered correctly and then you should be able to connect.
Use menu on DVR to assign internal IP and gateway and port number.
This Local IP must be in the same Gateway range as the Router. If you are unsure check the Router and locate the Status section, or goto the command prompt of your windows operating system and type in ipconfig.
Look for Gateway. If the Gateway is 192.168.1.1, then you can make the DVR's IP anything from 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.255.
Also you will need to use the same SubNet Mask, which is typically 255.255.255.0, and also use the same gateway.
Next find out what port your DVR uses. The easiest way to it is by reading the manual of your DVR. Look for the network section of it.
Also if it comes with network software, check out if in the connection area the software shows the port number.
Also check the Server software/Programming (Network section of it) to see if the port is listed.
In many cases it will be as simple as just Port 80, which is an HTTP port.
Set your router to forward chosen port to internal IP address of DVR.
To access the Router itself, use the Gateway you just located. If the gateway is 192.168.1.1, then enter that into the location edit box of your browser and then click the Enter button. A username and a password are typically required, but it depends on a router. For Linksys use "admin", "admin". By default DLink doesn't require any username or password (It is highly recommended to change the default password).
Once you're logged into the Router, in the Applications & Gaming Section / Servers of the Router, you need to add a Server/Application. Enter the port number and select TCP only. Where it says Port 0 to 0 enter the same port number twice. Or if your DVR uses for example, ports 3550, 4550, 5550, 6550, and there is nothing else utilizing these ports in between, then you can actually just enter one line, 3550 - 6550.
Enter the DVR/Cameras internal IP.

Set up additional entries for as many ports the DVR uses, to the same local IP. Check your DVR manual and it's networking section for all additional ports required. Also check the DVR software itself.
If your router has enough free entries, you can seperate them. Use it like DVR_HTTP for the browser port, DVR_AUDIO for the audio port, etc.
If you are going to use VNC to a PC DVR, then you would need to set up port 5900, and perhaps call it VNC_DVR, for example.
You have a static IP so you don't need to use sevices like www.dyndns.org . You just enter your static IP and your router forwards packets to your DVR.
To configure the DVR from a remote location you can do it one of two ways: Create a vpn connection through your router if it supports it or an external units to the remote location. This will make the remote location appear to be local to the dvr.
You can also setup the dvr's internal IP and port on your router through port forwarding. This way certain network access or traffic will be passed directly to the dvr from outside your local network.
on most dvr 's the port is 80 for the web cam. you also need to set up the network settings and know the ip you are trying to hit and is it static or dynamic if dynamic it will change periodicly. for example if you set the network settings on the dvr to the rang of your local network it would be something like 192.168.1.10 so under your router you would open port 80 to ip 192.168.1.10. make sence. first thing i would do is make sure the network settings in the dvr are set to work within your network. unless you have an extra static ip you can put it right into the dvr. fi you need further help just ask.

I'm not sure if you are still looking for the answer, but I think the problem may be that you need to enter the PUBLIC IP address of the modem at the remote end instead of the PRIVATE (ie. 192.168.1.x) IP that was actually assigned to the DVR. It works best if you assign a static IP to the DVR on the remote end and enter that IP into the router's DMZ. You might also want to get a free account at dyndns.net and setup a FQDN for your business router/modem. That way you can connect to it using something like "mybusiness.homeip.net" instead of an IP address, and if the IP changes it will still find it. You will also have to configure your modem at the business to automatically update the dyndns server when the IP changes.
