How To Setup an AI DVR Using the Amcrest View Pro App

The Amcrest View Pro app allows instant access to all live camera streams from any location. The app supports a multitude of features and includes both a plug-and-play setup as well as a manual network setup. Please note, AI features provided by the DVR can only be modified using the local or web UIs and cannot be adjusted using the Amcrest View Pro app.

The Amcrest View Pro app can be downloaded in both the App Store and Play Store.       

Before the DVR can be accessed through the app using the easy plug-and-play method (P2P Setup), P2P must be enabled on the DVR.

Enabling P2P 

P2P should be enabled on your device by default, however, to check if P2P is enabled, please follow the information provided below.   

Log into your DVR and access the Main Menu.

In the Management section, click on Network then click on P2P. Ensure the Enable toggle switch is enabled and the P2P status says “Online”. This indicates the P2P option is enabled.

Download and install the Amcrest View Pro app for the App Store or Google Play Store.
