I have a kguard NS801 system and my internet provider is BT,

Customer Question

I have a kguard NS801 system and my internet provider is BT, so I don't have a static ip address, nor will they give me one.
I'm trying to set up the kguard DDNS to use remotely on my iPhone when we're away.
I've downloaded the Kview app, but haven't a clue how to input the details into the app.
Perhaps there's a better app.

Hi Aubrey,

It's still possible to set up port forwarding on your BT Home Hub 5 to view the NS801 system on your iPhone whilst you are away. This is required, no matter what app you use to view the cameras.

Here are the instructions:

I've already set up port forwarding, a stated in my question detail, but still not able to view cameras from my iPhone.
Expert:  Pete replied 6 months ago.

Have you tried accessing by any other app or by a web browser?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I've got my dvr connected directly to my router via Ethernet cable ad I can see the cameras after choosing compatability mode on my IE browser. But, I haven't got a static IP and this changes throughout the day. When you say £19 to fix remotely, is this the total amount, as Justanswer are holding £20

I'm not too savvy with the techie stuff and don' know how to set up the app for remote viewing.
Expert:  Pete replied 6 months ago.

You can ignore the automated offer for remote fix, as I don't think we will be able to resolve this remotely as you have already set up the port forwarding.

Expert:  Pete replied 6 months ago.

You don't need a static IP address to access your NVR system remotely.

What I need Pete, is to know exactly what info to put into these apps. I've tried 2 or three, but the info they ask for is just not clear enough for me to understand, I'm sad to say. I've downloaded Kview Pro, but I'm immediately lost when setting up. Device Name - Login Type - Device ID - Scan or enter P2P -
Expert:  Pete replied 6 months ago.

Have you viewed the software manuals beside each app on the link I provided?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I may just have to persevere with the information that is out there.
