How to change the IP address of Dahua cameras is one of the most common questions I get. With a 4/8, 16 or 24 channel NVR, such as those included in a kit, you must ensure the channel counts are correct. Using the magic of the DHCP protocol, the NVR will automatically assign an IP address to the camera when it plugs it into its PoE ports.

In some cases, using a NVR with 32 or more channels may be tricky because the NVR lacks a POE port, so you must use an external capture device, you can connect cameras to the NVR by connecting a switch to the NVR’s LAN port.

A primary rule of networking is that no two devices on the same network can have the same IP address, as this will lead to collisions. Therefore, it is your responsibility to change the default IP address of your camera.The article below is a step-by-step guide on how to manually change the IP addresses of Dahua cameras.
