A guide for users connecting their NVR/DVR to Angelcam through a regular port forwarding. It will show you how to to get the stream from all your channels.
- This article is a follow-up for the general article about NVR/DVR connection. Please make sure to read that article first to ensure that your device is compatible.
Please follow these steps:
- Enter the public IP or DDNS hostname into our camera connector as you would with a regular camera. Don't forget to include any necessary info like a specific streaming port or the username and password if your device requires it.
- Add the detected camera to your account
- Navigate to a "manage camera" page and look for a "camera address"
- Copy the address to your clipboard.
- Paste the copied address into the new camera’s network address field, edit the channel number, and submit (in this case, “201” is the number representing the second camera, primary stream)
- Once submitted, the stream should be detected without any issues. You'll then be asked to select a camera name and be able to add it to your account.
- Repeat the process with additional cameras you want to connect.
NOTES & TIPS
Each channel will be handled as a separate camera even though the stream is coming from one device
