Ur ip cam is connect to your home router right...?

google on port forward and ddns.
Diff router brand had their own setting.
U need to tell ur router to allow outside network (not home direct or wifi) or etc u had to use Sineoji ddns.
I think the rules are already set to allow else I wonít be able to connect in the first place? Besides allowing the connection is there any other settings I can change?

I am only facing this issue intermittently like the rest of the folks you have quoted earlier. The issue usually resolve by itself after a few days later.

Thanks!

Cameras are in office.

Connecting via 4G is problematic.


Edit: after much trying one of them managed to connect.


Connecting via home wifi is ok.

First, power up your cam, without any lan cable attached to the cam, you must hear a continuous alarm. If you don't hear that, reset the cam by inserting a pin at the base of the cam where the reset hole is, press it until you hear a music, release the pin. Cam will restart, and wait for the continuous alarm .

Have your android or iPhone connected to your wifi using the 2.4 band, not the 5G.

Next open the sineoji app.
Hit the + icon
Tap on the one key
Enter your wifi password ( check the said shown there is the 2.4 band)
Click start
After 60s, the camera ID is shown
Tap on the camera ID and enter the default cam password.
Click Save.
The cam was working fine, just occasionally offline where I just need to power off and on again.
Recently, I change my Routerís name and did the above method but canít seems to detect the Cam Sineoji PT713V.
I am using iPhone XS Max and iOS 13.1.2.
Anyone can help?

I use mobile. Use chrome Lo

Can use app also.
I using IP Cam viewer

Anyway, I use 3rd party ddns
Thanks for the reminder on ipcam viewer !

Not being able to view on browser is really a deal breaker. I check on the cam quite frequently. It’s more discrete to view it on laptop. Not nice to be seen always on the phone

I have the Wyze Cam Pan. I used the Foscam FI9826 before. Previously, another Foscam.

The night vision in Wyze is not that strong compared to the Foscam. I think the range is shorter.

Other than that, I am happy with Wyze because of the cheaper price.

Sineoji still canít stream... see the app also so cui if I have known would not have gotten it. Compared it to Xiaomi, the latter is definitely more better.
After all the fake Sineoji users were exposed, their server seems having problem now.

Future buyers should avoid.

Bro port forwarding and ddns are things in the past.

Nowadays, setting up a camera is very straight forward.

Server hosted by Amazon. I think you can trust them better.

Yes but the ip cam must allow u to configure the TCP/IP ports. Without it, port forwarding wouldn’t work

Hi all,

Could anyone recommend a security camera that fits the following:

-battery powered
-wifi
-continuous recording
-able to record to a nas or sd card (would like to avoid monthly subscription fees)
-1080p recording


I have looked at the arlo ultra (a tad expensive and monthly fees), Blink XT2 seems good but limited to 60s recording, Wyze (not wireless)

Would love to hear some info from the gurus here. Thank you!

Sorry for the double post, I posted another thread but do not know how to delete it.
