CCTV Installation Guide

Sorry, i don't know if this is the right section and i post this to help others who want to install their own CCTV. (Paki-correct n lang po ang mga mali...hehe)

Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) - use of video camera to transmit signal to a specific place on a limited set of monitors...

The next instructions will help you set up your camera from start to finish. Including Remote Viewing...

1. The first step is to set up the camera or DVR itself.

- Select security camera positions. Map out the locations of cameras around your property, including the path that the coaxial cables (sa cable gamit ko UTP para isahan na "camera, audio, and ung power") will take through your home from the security cameras to the DVR, computer, power cables and power sources. Running cables through an attic, crawlspace or beneath siding will minimize the need to open up your walls. If you don't want to bother installing cable, you can install wireless security cameras that only require wiring for power.

- Drill holes for the cables using electric drill. Whether you're installing security cameras on an exterior wall or under your eaves, you may need to drill through materials like brick, siding and plywood to pass the coaxial cable through. You may also need holes in the ceiling or wall where the cables will meet your DVR and computer. Always check the location of plumbing and electrical wiring before drilling.

Your security cameras may get all the power they need from the coaxial cable alone; otherwise, you'll run a separate power cable and wire it to an existing circuit. Such wiring might require a licensed electrician.

Run cables through the holes and leave enough slack for them to connect to the security camera. Label the ends of the cables so that you know which security camera goes with which cable.

- Attach the mounting bracket. Depending on the size and weight of your security cameras, you may either want to mount them on siding or drill through to sturdier materials, such as wall studs. Each security camera is different, so follow the mounting instructions precisely.

- Connect the cables and mount the cameras. Connect the coaxial and power cables to each security camera according to the instructions. Security cameras may screw onto the bracket or simply twist on to attach firmly to the mount.

- Connect the cables to the computer. Attach the labeled coaxial cables from the security cameras to the desired ports on your DVR. You can then connect the DVR to your computer or simply connect a monitor directly to the DVR, depending on the model.

- Test the security cameras. Test to make sure that each security camera is recording properly. Now is a good time to test the line-of-sight for each of your security cameras and make adjustments as necessary.

2. Step 2 Configure Port Forwarding in your router.

- You have to know your dvr's ip address, http port, tct/udp port and in other camera video and audio port...(refer  to your dvr's manual)

- Now that your camera or DVR is up and running, the next step is setting up your network to allow external traffic. To do this, you will need to configure your router’s port forwarding settings. Visit for a handy list of guides by router and service. (If you do not have a router, you may skip this step.)

- Forward your dvr's http port, tct/udp port or video and audio port.

3. Test your network

- When you have configured port forwarding in your router, you will need to test your network externally (from outside). To do this, get your network’s external IP address from CheckIP, then have a friend try to visit the IP address or use our Open Port Tool to test your network. You should receive an “Open” response from our Open Port Tool, and your friend should be able to see your camera or DVR.

- When testing, it’s important to remember that if your friend receives any response other than “connection timed out” or “page not found”, the camera or DVR may be partially working. For example, he or she may see:

* A login prompt or splash screen
* Background images
* Camera controls, but without video
*Broken embedded ActiveX or Java plugins
*Changing title bar or address (e.g. ‘—WEB APPLICATION MANAGER—’, automatic redirect to
You require the following to view this post content:
  • You must thank this post to see the content.
, etc.) but no content

- All of these errors indicate that the network is at least partially configured and the device is responding; you may need to forward additional ports, change the device’s password, or have the friend use a browser which supports the web plugin utilized by the device (e.g. Internet Explorer for ActiveX).

4. View your camera from remote area.

- You need a static ip address... if your using dynamic ip address you need to use a dns server like

- create an account in your dns server, add domain

- install their client update. you can download it from your dns server like

- To view your camera from a remote area you need a dvr remote viewer software like DMSS for android phones.

hay hirap pala gumawa ng thead...

reply n lang po kung my tanong...

sana makatulong...
