Learn more below.
First, Find a Security Camera that Supports No-IP
You will need to find a camera that has Dynamic DNS capabilities. This will enable you to easily configure your camera for Remote Access. When searching for a camera, be sure the camera you choose has No-IP Dynamic DNS capabilities.
Configure the Camera to Work on Your Local and External Network
Use your manufacturer instructions to configure the camera on your local network. Once your camera is running on your internal network, you will need to need to port forward your router in order to view your camera stream from OUTSIDE of your local network.

Configure Integrated Dynamic DNS Within Your Camera
If your camera or router does NOT include No-IP, you will need to download our Dynamic Update Client and configure it to run on a computer on your network. Our Dynamic Update Client (DUC) requires you to have a computer always running on your network.
My Camera Already Has No-IP
Configure Dynamic Update Client
If you purchased one of the cameras linked above, it will include No-IP as an integrated Dynamic DNS provider. This will remove the need to keep a computer running on your network at all times. You will simply configure your camera to use your No-IP account and your camera will then send the IP address updates to our network automatically, with no need for a computer to be running 24/7.

Finally, Test Your Configuration
Now that you have everything configured, it is time to see if it works properly. If you have a cell phone, this may be the easiest way to test it from outside your local network. Be sure to turn off your WiFi. Next, type your hostname into your browser. It should pull up your camera stream.
