Trying to build myself some home security chops.
As a first step I bought one of these cheapo Foscam knock-off IP cameras:
And with a bit of a learning curve got it set up and accessible from any browser on my home network.
Kind of stuck as to the next step . . . received overwhelming advice on a Mac forum that left me not knowing what to do next. It seems I need a static IP? And my only option is to use a paid service? Someone recommended I sign up with https://www.no-ip.com/ wich I did last night, but no idea what to do next. Looking for some handholding.
I look forward to being able to help others through this process :-)
Um.... yeah, I noticed my dyslexic error; I reentered with the correct IP and now it's rebooting...
So I think it would probably lead to bad things if I gave it a single digit IP location like it keeps getting now.... my other cam is at 192.168.1.56-- would 192.168.1.58 be an OK location for this one?
Well, I seem to be good w/ 192.168.1.58, able to get right in via the web, thanks!
