Enable dchp, enable it and add verificationI got my hilook NVR and cameras setup, but i can't get the Hikconnect phone app to work. I've got the NVR connected to my router via the LAN port and the IP is configured in the same IP range as the router with default gateway etc.
When i goto platform access the status is showing as offline. Any advice?
So it works on data, bit not WiFi? Portforwarding isn't necessary with shitconnect, but is recommendedYeah got it working . The only thing not working is viewing when I’m. It at home . Think it needs port forwarding setting up on the router
Never heard of them Andy. We always use HikVision at work. It's very good.
Looks like you've got older cable with BNC so maybe an older style recorder might suit you better. Quality isnt as good obviously but you can get them with all the modern apps.
As above if you have existing BNC cable Hik turbo or dahua cvi
Apologies gents, I forgot to thank you for the suggestions. Having had a re-think I have decided to rip the old stuff out (cables and everything) and replace it with a modern setup and a couple more cameras. Cheers.....or search for hiwatch, basically a cheaper (if that's such a thing) hik. Basically last generation more cost effective solution
