Usually the IP camera is pre-set to DHCP which means it will receive the IP address assignment from your router automatically. This can avoid the any network configuration of the camera. However, you may want to change the camera to static IP if you want to record the video to NVR or 3rd party software. If your bird box camera fails to obtain the correct IP address from your network router, please manually set the IP address for the camera before you can view it online.
This below instruction is suitable for the IP (WiFi) birdhouse camera from Green-Backyard, Gardenature, Oertl, Green-feathers, and Handykam which are using iCSee or XMEYE mobile application. Both iCSee and XMEYE are Interchangeable.
1. First, in the main page, go to “Device Config”,right click the camera name in the Device list.

4. Next click “Apply” to Save.
NOTE: WiFi only camera doesn’t support static IP.
5. Now you assign the new IP address to the camera if you want after you disable the DHCP.

I am behind a NAT firewall and have to use port forwarding so I can access the camera from the internet. Can you tell me what port the camera uses so I can set my forwarding rule to pass the traffic?
The default basic port is 34567 (TCP). You may need to port fowarding 80 for Internet Explorer (IE) Browser accessing. If you have integrated the bird camera with 3rd party software, you may need to port fowarding 554 RTSP as well.
