Re: cannot view security system remotely on internet

Check IP address make sure it is correct. Also firewalls will prevent you from linking to dvr.

How to install activex manually?

To view your DVR remotely through the internet web interface, you must properly set your ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer.
First - Make sure you are not connected to or ar tying to connect to the DVR! Close the Browser and open a new one if you have to.
In your Internet Explorer browser, select the Tools drop-down menu above, and choose Internet Options. Choose the Security tab in the corresponding pop-up window that comes up.

Now click on the Custom Level button at the bottom of the Internet Options window. Scroll down until you see ActiveX controls and Settings, and apply the following changes:[img src="">

Follow the image below for the correct ActiveX Settings. (The settings as shown does not make your system more vulnerable, but maximizes your browser's security, while putting the choice of operation in your hands on a case-per-case basis.)
NOTE: These settings reflect versions 6-9 of Internet Explorer. Depending upon your version of IE, your controls may not follow exactly the same order or have all the options shown below -- Just make sure those you do have match what is shown.

OK, and then return to your browser by clicking OK again.
Close your Browser and open a new one. You should now be able to install any ActiveX controls needed to run any DVR remote software.
Be sure to accept any requests for software installation after typing your DVR address into the browser address bar. There may be several controls to install.

I have a Bunker Hill four camera home surveillance system,but I cant figure out how to get it to work through my internet so I can view video on my Android phone when I am away.

Determine your router's internet ip address and the port that your security system is set to communicate with.

Your Bunker Hill system should have an app for the Android phone that you can download. Download this app to your iPhone, then use your internet ip address and designated port address to set it up.

This information is general in nature, but it pretty much applies to 90% of the security systems that provide remote access.

Im trying to log into my cameras and i keep getting the Digia2 "failed to create CreateSurface[m_pDDSMergeImage0]!!!" Why is this happening. I dont have this problem on my other computers. the...

I had exactly this issue and managed to resolve it by changing my monitor (i know, it sounds weird but i tried everything else).

My specific situation is that i am viewing the cameras across a Vmware View connection (essentially, fancy remote desktop). I think that the issue is somehow related to a DirectX / DirectDraw component not working correctly but i couldn't swear to it.The "fix" (i believe) cam when Windows 7 could readily identify the monitors by their model number rather than a "Generic Non-Plug & Play Monitor" like the original monitors were (I swapped out some old Dell 18" screens for sme shiny new Dell 22" ones).

Hope that helps point you in a useful direction.

I have just installed my Uniden UDW20553 Video Surveillance System. I was under the impression that I would have remote access to view my cameras from anywhere in the world on my laptop. Have looked high...

The only solution I have found is using Remote Desktop Connection and running the Uniden application. On my Iphone I found that using Pocket Cloud Remote Desktop (RDP Itunes download application) works best. You must also download a free application named "Pocket Cloud Companion" on the PC your Uniden software is running. Pocket Cloud Companion must be running for connection to made through 3G, Edge or Wifi networks. Also, you have to configure your remote connections by using your PC's IP address rather then the name of your pc, particularly if making connection on 3G network.

Can i view from 2 monitors


You can watch with two different monitors. The picture served will be the same. What you need is a splitter. It will have 3 connections. 2 for monitors and one for the input. Remember to buy the cables with it. Local electronic store should have it.

Not able to use remote viewing via no-ip

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 for your local put the 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.

Unable to connect remotely to dvr unit

I'm presuming you are using Internet Explorer. You may need to change your browser's security settings to solve this problem.

Using Internet Explorer, click on TOOLS, Internet Options, Security, Local Intranet, then move your slider all the way down to Low and click Apply.

New fittings (terminations) should be available from your local electronics store. They would require crimping onto the cable or soldering although I have seen a variety that screws on.
