Hit ok once done. If everything is correct you should see all the cameras showing up. As long as you have the internet on the phone (WiFi, 4G, LTE, 5G), no matter where you’re located you will be able to see the cameras and playback as well.
Apart from scanning the QR code, you can add the information manually. Simply select the “Manual” button and fill out the information on the next window such as the IP address or DDNS hostname, port (default one is 80), and username/password. Then, if all the entered information is correct, you should see the camera’s live image.
