There's NO software install need (although we also offer you the client software).
The remote view for DVR has 2 sides:
1. Server side (the location of DVR), you need to do network setup, like the Router for your home computer's Internet.
2. Client side (any computer located anyhwhere), you ONLY need to open an Microsoft IE for reaching your DVR.
1. Enable ActiveX in your IE (Go to IE's Tab Tools->Internet Options->Security->Custom Level)
2. type your DVR's address in IE's address bar (could be an IP address or a DYNDNS domain).
