Introduction

Our next generation four channel Falco Pro Series DVR has arrived. It offers a more user friendly interface as well as significant advances in the area of remote view via wireless device.

Before You Start

In order to setup remoteview access, we must first make some adjustments to the configuration of both your Falco Pro Series DVR, and that of your network. We will first need to obtain an IP address for the DVR from your router. Then, we will configure port forwarding in your router to create a network path that allows for remoteview from outside your network. The DVR needs to be connected directly to the main router. If you have multiple routers chained together, it needs to be connected to the first in line. This is not optional. You will also need to know the username and password for your router. If you do not have these, you may be need to contact your router manufacturer or ISP before starting this process. To determine if you are using the new 4PRO DVR, verify that you are seeing this screen at system startup:
