sorry to bother you but i have just been reading yur discussion with ceperman about settings on a HH4
i am a complete novice at this game so please dont treat me as anything else
i have a swann camera setup at a property away from where i live which i can view remotely using their app
the problem is that the i address at this property is constantly changing and i then cannot access the cameras until i go to the property and read the new ip address and enter it onto the app
is there a away to set the router to keeep the same ip address
There is no way to keep the same public IP address unless you have a business account.
What you need to do is sign up for a Dynamic DNS service such as NoIP or DynDNS. These services keep track of your address and you access the camera by means of a host name. It is exactly the same thing as accessing a webpage by using www.whatever rather than by entering the IP address of the website.
The Swann CCTV system comes with access to Swann's own DDNS service which will allow you to register your device and get a static IP address.
If you go to the Swann website and support and search for "How to Create a DDNS or Hostname" it will give you the necessary information
