How to Connect Hikvision DVR to Mobile Without Internet:
To connect your Hikvision DVR to mobile, you must first download the app for your smartphone or tablet. This app is available on both Google Play and the Apple App Store.
Once downloaded, install the app on your mobile and router, and then go to the settings section to add your device. You will be prompted to enter the site name, remote IP address, username and password.
How to setup port forwarding on a router:
In order to connect your Hikvision DVR to a mobile without internet, you must setup port forwarding on your router. The DVR uses two ports by default: 6100 and 80.
Using port forwarding, you can forward the entire range of these ports. After setting up port forwarding on your router, make sure you save the changes and enable them.
Once you have completed all these steps, open the web interface of your router. Select IP config setup, which is located on the TCP/IP settings page.
Type in the public IP address you have created. After you do this, you should see an ActiveX web service prompt. Make sure that your router firewall rules do not block the port forwarding.
After you’ve completed all of these steps, you can connect your DVR to the internet. If your router supports DHCP, you should change the DHCP mode to automatic. After that, you should enter the IP address of your DVR into the PORT number field.
Configuring a static IP address How to connect Hikvision DVR to mobile without internet:
If you’re looking to connect your Hikvision DVR to a mobile without internet, you need to configure the IP address of the mobile device to a static IP address.
This will prevent DHCP requests from attempting to resolve the IP address. Then, plug the Hikvision DVR into the camLAN on the Eagle Eye Bridge and select “Obtain an IP address automatically”. Once the camera is connected, the Hikvision VMS Dashboard will show a Hikvision camera.
Before you can configure the IP address, you need to enter the IPv4 Address of the DVR. This address is called the Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address.
Make sure to write down the Subnet Mask as well. Once you have these information, you can proceed to setting up your DVR.
To access your Hikvision DVR on your mobile, you need to make sure that the device is connected to your home network. Connect the Hikvision DVR to the router using the blue UTP cables.
Then, login to the Hikvision DVR as an administrator. Click the settings menu on your mobile device and click on “DHCP.” Once you’ve logged in, you can start using your Hikvision DVR.
Using a free DNS service How to connect Hikvision DVR to mobile without internet:
When you’re unable to connect to the Hikvision DVR through an internet connection, you can use a free DNS service to manage the DNS for your device.
This will allow you to log into the DVR from a remote location. If you don’t have a DNS service, you can get one from your Internet service provider.
To do this, you will need to make sure you use the same protocol that your DVR uses to connect to the Internet.
By default, Hikvision uses HTTPS to transfer information to your DVR. You can also connect to it using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
You must also ensure that your router supports DHCP and that your IP address is unique for each device. Some routers support this feature, while others don’t.
If you don’t, your router may change the IP address of your DVR, making your port forwarding setup useless.
Installing a third party IP camera on a Hikvision NVR:
If you have no Internet connection, you may have trouble installing a third-party IP camera on a Hikvision N-Series NVR.
There are two ways to install a camera on the NVR: first, plug it into a POE NVR or separate switch. Once plugged in, you can log in to CamViewer software to configure your camera’s network settings.
After you have installed the third-party NVR, connect the Hikvision camera to the network. The Hikvision camera will connect to the third-party NVR through the ONVIF protocol. This means that both the camera and the recorder must be running the latest firmware.
You can use Hikvision’s discovery tools to locate the cameras on the network. Alternatively, you can use the Hikvision Batch Configuration Tool to add multiple cameras at the same time. Just make sure to set the ONVIF function in each camera.
