Remote Access

Remotely monitor your home or business security system with DynDNS


Our Remote Access solution allows you to choose a unique hostname (ex: and link it to any IP-compatible device (router, webcam, security camera, DVR, thermostat, computer, file storage, etc.). As the IP addresses used to access these devices change, Dyn takes care of updating it for you, ensuring you are always connected.

Using Dyn’s dynamic DNS (DDNS) eliminates the headache and human error associated with tracking ever-changing IP addresses and allows you to avoid the alternative of purchasing pricey static IPs.

By enabling Dyn’s Remote Access, you can...

  • Retrieve files and applications from anywhere
  • Monitor a home security system
  • Provide tech support to remote computers
  • Access a home automation solution

Disclaimer: Technical support for any IP-compatible device is not included in the Remote Access product. Please refer to manufacturer manuals for all device specific setup and user interface accessibility.
