Not connected? Here are some things to check

  1. Make sure the physical connection between NVR and switch/router is made, and the cable is good(see if green link light is lit under LAN port)
  2. DHCP may be turned Off within your router, you may need to disable in NVR and manually input your IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and your DNS Servers (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4)
  3. Can you connect to the device via the LAN IP, whether it’s the DHCP address or the address you manually gave it (because DHCP was disabled) via the Internet Explorer to ensure it has network connectivity
  4. Was the P2P definitely “enable” and saved, check back (Menu/System/Network/P2P)
  5. Can you successfully login to your Star4Live account (www.star4live.com) to make sure the registration was a success
  6. If all else fails, you can always reach out to the InVid Tech technical Support Team
