How To Access the Web UI Using a DVR

This device features the latest in JS technology which allows you to access your device via a wide variety of web browsers including, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and other mainstream web browser via your PC or Mac computer. However, as a primary means of accessing the web user interface for your Amcrest device in a web browser, we highly recommend using Internet Explorer to access your device's web user interface as most modern browsers may provide certain limitations when accessing your device via a web browser. For more information on how to access your device from your computer please refer to the information below.

To access your device from your computer you will need to first locate the device's IP address. To locate the device’s IP address is it highly recommended to download our free Amcrest IP Config Tool software. The Amcrest IP Config Tool can be downloaded at the following web page:

In the All Downloads menu, click on IP Config Software to begin the free download. Once the download has completed installing, locate the IP address associated with the device you would like to view in the browser.

Please note, the IP address listed in the image above is just an example. The IP address for your device may be different than the one represented in the image. 

Open the web browser and enter the IP address into your browser. Press enter to access the web user interface. Please note, if you are using Internet Explorer, please allow all plugins to run to allow camera to function in the interface.

In the web user interface, enter the login credentials for your device. If this is the first time accessing the device, the username and password will both be admin. Click on Login.


If this is the first-time logging into your device, you will be prompted to modify the password for your device. To modify the password, enter the new password you would like to use in the New Password field and confirm. The password used should be between 8 and 32 characters long with a combination of letters and numbers.


The main menu for the DVR will be displayed.
