1. Have your camera connected to the power outlet and follow the iCamera installation guide to install the iCamera first. Make sure your smartphone is on Wi-Fi and you are able the view the live video from the iCamera page before proceeding to step 2.
2. Determine the iCamera IP address (First Gen). One way of finding out is by using “Fing”, which is a free app that can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. If the camera is on Wi-Fi, it will have the manufacturer name Realtek Semiconductor or Shenzhen bilian electronic. The IP address will be the section boxed below.
3. Determine the Gateway address for your router. This can also be found in “Fing”. The gateway address is boxed in red below. The gateway address is listed at the top of your Fing app and has a symbol next to it. In addition, not all routers begin with “0.3.;” some routers began with “192.168.1.”
4. Launch the iSmartAlarm app > Login > go to the iCamera page > select your iCamera > tap Settings > tap Static IP.
IP: (the IP address determined in step 2)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
GATE: (the gateway address determined in step 3)
5. Tap Done.
6. Wait for the iCamera to reboot. Make sure you see the live feed before moving on.
7. Launch Airport Utility
8. Click “Edit”
9. Select “Network”

12. Ensure the following information is entered correctly.
- For the public UDP/TCP port and the private UDP/TCP port, use the same 5 digit Port number. (17941)
- IPv4 Port Mapping
- Private IP Address: Enter your iCamera’s IP address (Refer to step 2)
13. Save your changes, then click on Update
14. You’re almost done! To verify that your port forwarding adjustments were set properly, visit http://www.canyouseeme.org/ and enter “17941” in the “Port to Check” text field. Click “Check Port.”
