Add an INSTAR P2P IP Camera

Our HD camera line additionally allows you to add the camera by a so-called p2p (Point-to-Point) connection. To establish the p2p connection, choose to add a New p2p Camera, type in the camera's UID, which can be found on the sticker on the camera and the web user interface (720p / 1080p). Or use the QR code scanner to scan your camera's code. Please be aware that the QR code on the sticker contains your camera's default login. The QR code in the webUI (Network/P2P) is generated dynamically and will contain your UID as well as your personal camera login. If you change your camera´s administrator login or just activated the p2p service, you first have to restart your camera, before you can access it via your UID.



DDNS or P2PFirst you have to choose to add your camera via its local IP / DDNS address or its P2P UID. For the DDNS Service please Continue Reading Here.

You can also write down your camera´s UID (User Identification) from the P2P menu and type it in by hand.
