CCTV Network Set Up

 

Any camera or device to be used over the internet must first be set up or configured on your local area network (LAN) along with your wide area network (WAN). The local area network setup takes place with the router and the DVR software. There are certain factors that will have to be considered in the configurations of IP cameras and DVRs to the internet before any transmission of data will occur. This will often influence the purchase of a security camera system. Port forwarding will also have to be setup as part of the WAN.

 

Survey The Work Space

 

Before purchasing any system it is wise to have an idea of how you will connect your system. For instance with a wired system you would want to know the accessibility of your working area. Respectively the space you have to run the wires in your attic. Or where ever you will run them maybe in the soffit. Plus the place you will connect them to your router.

 

Power Outlet

 

With a wireless you will need a power outlet. Even though the signal is transmitted wirelessly there will still be a need for a power supply. Wireless cameras are only one half wireless unless you use a battery operated camera. In this event you will be constantly changing batteries.

 

Static Or Dynamic IP

 

When setting up your new system certain information will be of a benefit to you in understanding the difference between a Static and Dynamic IP address. Most businesses are on a Static while most homes are on a Dynamic IP address. A static IP is constant whereas a Dynamic is constantly changing necessitating a  DDNS service normally included with the purchase of a CCTV system or wireless camera. What is my IP will provide you with your IP address plus a lot of other information that may be helpful in setting up a wireless camera or DVR.

 

Port Forward

 

You will want to learn about your router as well as port forwarding in order to view your cameras over the internet. At port forward there is a lot of information regarding port forwarding. They have a list of any router that has ever been manufactured to help in the set up or configuration of your network.
