With the ABUS server, you can set up a straightforward, convenient connection allowing you to access your ABUS IP products online from anywhere in the world and at any time.
This is how it's done – you will find installation support here:
Use these step-by-step instructions to set up your account on the ABUS server and configure remote access to IP cameras, recorders, alarm systems, apps etc.:
If you are a private Internet user connected to the internet via a router/DSL modem, you are typically given an dynamic IP address when your connection is set up. You need this public IP address as a kind of "house number" in order to access your network and the IP devices registered there from outside (e.g. cameras, recorders). However, your internet provider cuts the connection to your router/modem automatically approx. every 24 hours, and then assigns a new IP address – or a new "house number" – to your private network. The devices connected to your router/DSL modem (cameras, recorders etc.) are then no longer accessible from outside. In order to avoid having to find out your network's current IP address and change all the devices in the web interface (operating menu) every day, it is recommended you use the DDNS server (DDNS = Dynamic Domain Name System).
The ABUS server provides you with a free DDNS service. This gives you a fixed domain name as a pseudonym for your network's public IP address which changes regularly. In this way, all IP devices (cameras, recorders etc.) in your private network can be accessed via the same easy-to-remember domain name at any time – and can be managed simply and clearly from one access point via www.abus-server.com. To do this, the server stores the current respective internet address of your IP devices and establishes a connection to the domain name. In this way, the ABUS server acts as a user-friendly cloud platform, making the management of your IP devices much easier, whether you are the user or a specialist installation contractor. In all cases, setting up a port release is a requirement for operation (see documentation).
