Step 1: Go to, then "Create an account" or "Sign In" if you already have one.

Step 2:
When you get to the "Connect Camera" page, select the device you want to connect - in your case, it will most likely be a "Regular IP Camera".

Step 3: "Select your camera brand" you would like to connect. This will help the camera connector to be more accurate and faster. You may choose one from the list of popular brands on the left. In case your brand is not there, you can scroll down the list of All brands on the right side.

Step 4: "Enter a network address" - this is the place where you need to enter your dynamic DNS hostname or your public IP address. You can find it in your DDNS provider account or in your router settings. It looks like "". In case you don't have a dynamic DNS hostname yet - check this No-IP getting started guide or sign-up to No-IP right away.

In case your camera is password protected, you will need to fill in your camera login credentials (Login & Password). If you don't know your password and never changed it, you will most likely have default settings - see the default camera passwords directory.

Angelcam camera connector automatically scans frequently used ports (554, 88, 81, 555, 7447, 8554, 7070, 10554, 80, 6667, 8080, 8081, 8090). In case you used any other, you will need to "set your port manually". If you haven't opened your ports yet, see our port-forwarding guide, and keep in mind we always recommend opening port 554. Why? It allows Angelcam to get a video with the h.264 codec - learn about the difference between h.264 and MJPEG.

Step 5:
"Give your camera name" and click on "Confirm and proceed". You are all done! 

Step 6: Activate subscriptions needed
