Next, access the web interface of the device and make sure that it is set up correctly with video input sources and network settings. Identify types of cameras connected and ensure that they are enabled and have a valid IP address that corresponds to the network settings specified in the web interface. Additionally, check your video feed settings to ensure that they are displaying with optimal levels of quality and frame rate for viewing recorded footage later on.

Once all settings have been configured appropriately, reboot the system and test your connection by attempting to remotely log into it via Internet Explorer or Google Chrome from another device or computer using its public IP address or DDNS URL provided by CP Plus depending upon their service package plan . If all is successful you should now be able to view live footage from all cameras connected to this DVR/NVR via an app like PPX Live Viewer available for Android and iOS devices from CP Plus Connect App store .
