Can I use port forwarding to setup remote viewing for my NVR?

Yes, you can setup your system via port forwarding. Although, this setup is recommended for more advanced users. You will need to note the IP Address of the NVR/DVR. To obtain this, go to Main Menu>Maintenance>System Info>Network, your IP address will be the IPv4 address at the top. Then you’ll need to log into your router via web browser on a PC. Once logged in, you’ll need to add ports 80, 8000, and 554 to the port forwarding rules. For help with port forwarding for your router, contact the manufacturer or your ISP. There are also guides for a lot of various models of routers here

The port forwarding setup should look something like this:

Application   Start     End         Protocol   IP Address

DVR1                 80           80         TCP            192.168.x.x.

DVR2               8000      8000       TCP            192.168.x.x.

DVR3                554         554       TCP            192.168.x.x.

To make sure test the ports on, and if they are open you can add the information to your phone app.
