I have just setup a 4 camera surveillance system and I can access it remotely using my home network, on mobile (app), PC and Mac. However if I want to access it over the internet, thats a different story. After a bit of unsuccessful battling, it seems I need to setup something port forwarding, and to do that I need a Static IP also?
I was wondering if anyone reading had setup their own streaming camera feeds, and could share their knowledge. Does it sound accurate that I'm looking into port forwarding and static IP purchase?

You don't need a static IP for port forwarding, Search the community loads of threads on this very topic

Before you begin, you will need to obtain a Static IP Address

Can somebody please clarify for me if I need a Static IP address? I have two conflicting pieces of information pertaining to this. Cheers!

Hi @AaronC ,
Which modem/router do you have? You should not need a static IP to forward ports on your router. You may need one to access your system remotely, however, but this will depend on what method you're using for remote access. For example, I use Google's Chrome Remote Desktop feature, which works fine over dynamic external IPs.
Check out the likes of http://portforward.com/ for more info - you may need to set a static internal IP for the devices you wish to access remotely. What is the make of your home surveillance system? There may be some info available about this specific setup online, happy to take a look for you.

Hi everyone, I'm bringing this thread back as its finally made it around to the top of my things to do list...
I'm not exactly sure what end user experience I should expect should I manage to get this working.. but I'm keen to have a crack at seeing what happens. Heres some pics to explain my hardware environment. If anyone has suggestions on how to configure that would be great, thanks.

Thanks, that is some help..
I don't understand the ports and server stuff very well though. In my screenshots I have server port (7777) and http port (80)
In my router settings I have External Port start, and External Port end.
Then I also have Internal Port Start and Internal Port End. How do these relate? Is the server port the "Internal Port Start/End" and the http Port "External"? Also in this scenario, is my recording device the server, or my homepages account at vodafone?
It doesn't help that I don't have any example to aspire to unfortunately. I'm just trying to set up my security system so I can log in remotely. I don't really get how that works either. Does everything upload to my homepages account.. or am I somhow bounced back to my own recording device? No idea lol. Any help welcome
