How to Setup DDNS on Camius DVR and NVR Surveillance Recorder?

To setup DDNS for Camius security cameras, you’ll first need to register for a DDNS service, obtain a domain name, activate DDNS in your camera’s network settings, and then input your DDNS account’s hostname, username, and password.

If you want to access your Camius DVR or NVR recorder remotely from your PC, you might encounter some difficulties with dynamic IP addresses. A dynamic IP address is one that changes every time you connect to the internet, making it hard to establish a stable connection with your recorder. That’s where DDNS comes in handy.

What is DDNS?

Dynamic DNS, or DDNS, stands for Dynamic Domain Name System, and it allows you to assign a static domain name to your recorder, regardless of its IP address. This way, you can always connect to your recorder using the same URL without worrying about IP changes.

Dynamic DNS lets you access your Camius security camera device on the internet with an easy-to-remember web address like “camiusnvr.dyndns.com” instead of a hard-to-remember IP address like 216.144.47.245. This is useful when you want to connect to your security camera, DVR, NVR from anywhere in the world.

Setting up DDNS

In this guide, we will take you through the steps of setting up DDNS on your Camius DVR or NVR recorder. You will need to have an account with a DDNS service provider, such as DDNS_3322, DYNDNS, NO_IP, CHANGEIP, or DNSEXIT.

Step 1:

Create an account on your preferred DDNS service provider website and a domain name (which is a hostname for your Camius DVR/NVR or an IP camera). Each of these providers offers free and paid accounts, which you need to select based on your requirements.

You will need to provide your email address and create a password. After verifying your email, you will be able to log in to your dashboard. The process of creating an account with DDNS service providers is similar.

Create a domain name for your recorder on the DDNS server. You can usually choose any domain name (hostname) you like, as long as it is not already taken. For example, you can use something like camius.no-ip.org or camius2023.dyndns.com

Step 2:

Configure DDNS settings on your Camius DVR or NVR recorder.

  • On your recorder, go to Main Menu > Network > DDNS.
  • Check the box next to DDNS to enable it.
  • Select the Server from the drop-down list.
  • Enter the domain name you created in Step 1 in the Domain field. Enter the Username and Password you used to sign up for your DDNS server in the User and Password fields.

Step 3:

  • Click on ‘Test DDNS‘ to verify if the settings are correct. If the test result is “Success,” you have successfully configured DDNS on your recorder.
  • If the test result is “Network is unreachable or DNS is incorrect,” please check your network connection and make sure you entered the correct DDNS information.

Step 4:

Enter the Domain name (hostname) in a web browser tab bar to access your Camius DVR/NVR remotely from a PC or Mac. Enjoy!
