Applies to: All Reolink NVRs and Cameras.
Generally, there are 3 ways to achieve remote access for Reolink cameras/NVRs.
Method 1: By Using UID (exclude the cameras in NVR security kits)
Step 2. Refer to the following methods to remotely access Reolink cameras/NVRs.
Method 2: By Using Domain Name (exclude the battery-powered cameras and the cameras in NVR security kits)
Step 1. It requires that your router has a public IP address, and the camera is connected to that router.
Step 2. Register a DDNS service account (for example, you may register a No-IP account). The DDNS service provider will provide you a domain name, and please refer to here to configure your DDNS on the camera/NVR.
Step 3. Please use the port forward function of your router to forward the required ports of your cameras/NVR to WAN network, please refer to here for port forwarding.
Note: The Port Forwards page varies depending on the specific type of your router. You may refer to the user manual of the router to set up port forwarding.
Step 4. Refer to Method 1 ->Step 2 to remotely access your device via Reolink Client or Reolink App, but please select IP/Domain Name after entering the Add Device page.
You may also use the domain to Remotely Access Reolink Cameras/NVRs on Web Browsers. (just need to change the IP address to domain name)
Method 3: By Using IP Address (exclude the battery-powered cameras)
If you have a fixed public IP address on your router, then you don't need the DDNS service.
You may use the port forwarding function to forward the camera/NVR port to the WAN network, then login to the camera/NVR via that public IP address directly. Please refer to the Method 2 above for port forwarding.
