How to Add Webcam (Mac)

The DVR.Webcam app will automatically detect your device's built-in cameras. When you run the app for the first time, it will automatically set up one of your built-in cameras. You can edit the camera settings, or add a new camera from the applications toolbar.

The app can also detect external USB webcam once you attach it to the device.

Audio can be added to webcams. Be sure to select the correct audio device associated with your camera.

How to Add IP Cameras (Mac)

You can add IP cameras from your home network. The app currently supports MJPEG, JPEG and H.264 cameras.

To add an IP camera, you will need to enter the camera's access URL for its image stream. The app has a built-in search tool to help you find the URL. Simply enter your camera make/model into the search box, and locate your camera. Then, enter the required fields such as the camera's IP address, login ID, and password, etc.

If your IP camera is not supported, please contact us.

How to View DVR Remotely

You can access your DVR from any computer or mobile device using a web browser. Simply visit dvr.webcam site and click My DVR and log in using your Google account. No separate website registration is required, and no complicated router or firewall configuration is needed for remote access.

NOTE: Please use Google Chrome browser on the computer to view.

The app also comes with a built-in viewer.

You can play back recordings from the current device, or from another iOS device or mac computer running the same app. This allows you remotely view live recordings. For example, you can use the app to do DVR recording at home, and then use your mac at work to view.

The recording range slider at the bottom shows all available recordings for the selected camera and selected date. The green section indicates the time ranges when the recording is available. When the recording is not available (for instance, when the app is not recording), the section will show as white.

You can use the range slider to zoom into a specific time range. This will give you a sub-range to view.

The recording detail slider at the top shows the sub-range of the recordings selected by the range slider. Again, the green section indicates recordings are available.

In addition, if motion detection is turned on, it will show the motion level at the time as a red bar. The height of the red bar indicates the motion intensity. To play back recording at a specific time, adjust the detail slider to the time you are interested.

The app also lets you download and save the recorded video to your local device. You can also manually delete the recordings from the iCloud storage.
