Some cameras have 2 way audio, so you can even talk to the person or pet. We all know that if we go to a certain IP address on our home browser, we can configure and view the camera, but how do we do the very same thing when we are not home.
STEP 1 There’s several steps into making this work, so it’s best to start at the camera.
The default is typically 80, but if you want to have more than one camera, you need to use a different number.
To avoid port conflicts, it’s better to use a number higher than 8000 but less than 60000.
The first step is to set a fixed address on the camera so that it doesn’t change and you can always find it.In the DOS window, enter the command “ipconfig”, on a MAC enter the command “ifconfig”.You will see the IPv4 address, the subnet mask and the default gateway.One of the biggest benefits of having IP cameras is being able to access them from the internet.Many of us have smartphones, i Pads or netbooks that we take with us and it would be great to check in on the place, a pet or the elderly while at work, in a coffee shop or while traveling.
