Connecting to your DVR Via Wifi

Multiple Ways to Connect to the DVR

The DVR can be connected with an Ethernet (LAN) cable to a laptop, or it can also be accessed wirelessly using a Wi-Fi connected laptop, tablet, or smartphone device.


1. Connect to the DVR:

a. LAN:
Connect a cable from the LAN port on the DVR unit to a LAN port on the laptop using a standard (Non-crossover) LAN cable. Your computer must have a static IP address set on the LAN adapter to connect to the DVR. To set the computer to a static IP, see step 2.
