I cant find anything in the cox app to help me. I have cox wifi and i want to hook up cameras for security. I cant even tell if the cameras have picked up the wifi signal. Can anyone tell me how to connect the cameras to my wifi and my phone?

    IP cams should have setup software with them. If you are using a cloud service it's pretty straight forward. If you are just using IP cams you'll need to VPN into the house or use port forwarding. Port forwarding is a bit tricky as you need a different iP and a different open port for every cam. Say the 10 octet is used in your home Cam 1 192.168.10.25:81 Cam 2 192.168.10.26:82 and so on. Use a good router like an ASUS 88 or above for port forwarding as you open the device up on that port for attack. You don't have to use the ports I used but make sure you don't create a conflict.
