Streaming CCTV cameras over the internet

I currently have 6 CCTV cameras in my house, which are physically wired to a DVR. I can view these cameras through a monitor using DVI out. However, I would like to be able to view these cameras from anywhere I can access the Internet. The DVR that I have has an Ethernet port. Do I need to host a server to stream these cameras online, or can I simply connect the DVR to my router and then access the router through a static ip?

  1. you simply need to connect the DVR to the router and port forward the necessary port on the router

    Do I need to set up a static IP on my router first?
  3. you do not need a static IP on the router you can use DDNS (free services available).

    I would assign a static internal IP to the DVR
  4. I think what you need are IP CCTV Cameras.
  5. Not required. However you may have to flush the DNS in your DVR, subject to the router, gateway / modem's range.
