I recently setup 2 cameras and so far they have been great, until I had to leave my house. When I am at work and on an LTE connection, connecting to a camera has become a huge pain. It constantly kicks back to trying to connect/authenticate. Once in a while I get a single frame preview and it locks up (can tell by the timestamp)… and then it tries to authenticate again. As soon as I am on the same WiFi network, it connects and is nice and smooth. So I have a couple of questions regarding the tech behind this:
- When I am connecting to the cameras via the app, am I connecting directly to my home IP address and accessing the camera? or is the camera streaming to a server somewhere and I am connecting and pulling the feed from said server.
- How many people can connect to a camera for viewing at the same time. I have shared the cameras with my girlfriend and she attempts to connect to it from time to time.
- Are there any ports that need to be forwarded from my home router that would stabilize/allow proper external viewing/connectivity?
