IP Address Changes

Post by Ldfendell » Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:18 am

I have a home security system that needs my IP Address but the Upkeep changing and doesn't allow me to monitor my home when I'm away. Why does this keep happening and how can I keep an IP Address stable so that it will not cancel out my monitoring of my property?
Thank you

Your IP on your mobile device has to change as you move around. You have several options:

1) You can contact your provider and ask them how to solve this problem.

2) You can try using a proxy server whose IP address does not change. The way that would work is that you would connect to the proxy and it would connect to your home security system.

3) You may be able to only enter in part of your IP address and have that work, if the security system allows that. In that case, if your IP outside the home was something like 100.101.102.103 You might enter something like 100.101.102. ; 100.101.102.*; or 100.101.102.0/24. This should give you access as long as the first 3 numbers of your IP remain the same. This is just an example.

Good Luck!

Is the issue that your HOME IP address is changing or the IP address you are using while AWAY FROM HOME keeps changing?
