A guide for users connecting their NVR/DVR to Angelcam through regular port forwarding. It will show you how to get the stream from all your channels. 

  • This article is a follow-up to 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 the 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

If your device won't be found, consider Reading more about RTSP addresses & how to find it for NVRs/DVRs. You can usually get this info from your dealer or manufacturer of the device. You can follow this guide talking about finding a stream path or feel free to contact us should you get stuck at this point.
