  3. In the DynDNS section, beside Host name, enter a hostname for the camera.
  4. Add the unit to Security Center.
  5. From the Video task in Config Tool, select the camera to configure then click Properties.
  6. Beside IP address, select Obtain network settings dynamically (DHCP) .
  7. Click Apply.
