Hi, I previously used my IP address to access my cctv when not on home Wi-fi. I changed the ip every time it changed. The ip changed a week or so ago, and not I can not seem to be able to now look at the cctv when not at home. All is fine when using home Wi-fi.
anny ideas. Thanks in advance.
Has the cameras local IP address (the 192.168.1.xxx address on your home network) changed as a result of all the power interuptions?
I have no idea, as if you are not forwarding a port, I cannot see how you could view the CCTV from outside of your home network.
Perhaps you had forwarded a port, and a firmware update on the home hub has reverted the settings to factory default?
So, just to be clear, the camera is set for static IP and that IP address is shown as Connected on the hub manager (Advanced settings - My Network)? if it is connected then the icon should be green and the connection status field shows as Connected when you click on that device.
If the icon is grey and/or it shows as Not Connected then it is not set for static IP and there will be another address for that device in the table.
I recommend asking on a specialist IP camera manufacturers forum for you camera or app or for generic advice you can use something like...
For security reasons I do not forward ports and use a vpn server to access my cameras remotely.
