3G CCTV and 4G CCTV connectivity with the Proroute 3G and 4G routers is a quick and simple way to remotely connect to your CCTV DVR using the 3G and 4G mobile phone networks.
The Proroute H820 and H685 wireless broadband routers provide either a 3G or 4G mobile internet connection to enable remote access to CCTV DVR or IP Cameras in the same way that you would normally connect using a standard wired ADSL broadband service.
In order to remotely connect to the 3G / 4G Router you will of course need to know the IP address of the router. The easiest way to achieve this is by using a Fixed IP SIM Card. This type of service will then work in exactly the same way as using a wired ADSL service with a static IP address – if you connect to your DVR using a web browser, simply open your browser, type in the IP address and you are connected to the router and can use port forwarding within the router configuration to connect to the devices on the LAN side of the router.
Another option is to use Dynamic DNS (DynDNS) but not all networks support this service so please ensure that you choose the correct service provider. You can read about using port forwarding with DynDNS by clicking HERE.
One of the common questions we are asked about using 3G or 4G to connect to a CCTV solution is How Much Data Will I Need? We are unable to answer this question because it depends upon the camera or DVR used, the codecs, image quality and frame rates and this is all information you will need to obtain from your hardware provider. We have answered this question in a bit more detail HERE.
