This guide will help you setup and configure Dynamic DNS within your Dahua device. Using the integrated Dynamic DNS in your device means that you don’t have to keep your computer running all the time on your network in order to access your device remotely.
Step 1: Log in to the camera using the local IP address.
Step 2: Click “Network.”
Step 3: Click “DDNS” and then click “Enable.”
Step 4: Select No-IP from the “DDNS Type” drop down.
Step 5: Input the following information:
- Host IP: If this section does not automatically fill in add the following: dynupdate.no-ip.com
- Domain Mode: Click “Custom Domain Name.”
- Domain Name: This will be the hostname you created with No-IP. (i.e. example.ddns.net)
- Username: The e-mail address of your No-IP account.
Step 6: Click “Ok” or “Test” at the bottom of the page.
Congratulations, the Dahua device will now send No-IP updates whenever the IP address changes.
