I was able to view live cameras via my Hikvision 7608NI using ivms-4500 on my Ipad until poop happened. Now I only get ‘’connection failed!’’ I can only view my cameras now via HDMI cable connected between my desk top and the NVR. Yeah......beginning to believe that you got what you pay for and ivms-4500 is free. So my next thought is/was to try Blue Iris. Checked Apple’s store and sure enough, there was Blue Iris for less than $10. Now the gotcha is that it requires Blue Iris loaded onto my desktop. Fine, I don’t mind paying for the software but that is not the issue. My NVR connects directly to my Verizon Fios router via an ethernet cable so it can communicate directly to the great beyond without my desktop. So why does Blue Iris need to see a desktop for it to function on an Ipad? The ONLY place away from home that I am trying to view my NVR’s attached cameras in on my Ipad. And yes I am using port forwarding. And I notice now when I log directly into my Verizon router, that Verizon has changed how one views anything on the router. Why is it that so many software developers believe ‘new is better?’ If things work........not broken...... DON’T FIX THEM! OK, enough venting. Well, that’s my problem, no remote video and looking for a solution. Thanks for taking the effort to read this far.
