Dynamic DNS


Access IP Cameras and other network equipment using your MobiLinc Connect service with Dynamic DNS.


What is Dynamic DNS?

Dynamic DNS is a static web address that maps back to your home's external IP address. Since most ISPs will change your home's IP address frequently a lot of users opt to pay for a DNS tracking service like no-ip.org to access their IP Cameras and other home network items.

This frequent changing of your external IP address is why we originally created the MobiLinc Connect service. MobiLinc Connect and your ISY work together to give you local and remote access anywhere you have internet access, no matter if your external IP address changes, but it was limited to just the ISY controller.

With the Dynamic DNS feature of MobiLinc Connect, you can use your unique MobiLinc Connect address instead of paying for a separate dynamic DNS service to access other network equipment items like IP Cameras.

Your MobiLinc Connect Dynamic DNS address is:
{ISY's UUID}.mobilinc.io

For example, if your ISY's UUID is: 12:34:56:78:90:12 remove the colons and use this to reach your home's external IP address: 123456789012.mobilinc.io
You can find the UUID under the Admin Console->Help->About


While port forwarding is not required for MobiLinc Connect and your ISY, if you wish to use your Dynamic DNS address to access IP Cameras and other equipment you will still need to port forward through your router to access these items. However, please do not port forward your ISY through your router. This is not required and may cause issues.

What is my Dynamic DNS address?

If your ISY has an active MobiLinc Connect subscription you can use this address to reach your home's external IP address where your ISY is located:

{ISY's UUID}.mobilinc.io

For example, if your ISY's UUID is: 12:34:56:78:90:12 remove the colons and use this to reach your home's external IP address: 123456789012.mobilinc.io
You can find the UUID under the Admin Console->Help->About

You can use your Dynamic DNS address in any web browser or app where you need access to your home's IP address. If you use the IP Camera plug-in for MobiLinc, you can use this address for the External IP address field of the IP Camera entry to reach your external IP address. Note, port-forwarding your IP Camera or other network equipment to access these remotely using your Dynamic DNS is still required.

Who can use this?

Anyone with an active MobiLinc Connect account, an ISY-994x controller, and an active subscription for the ISY.

If you currently have another Dynamic DNS service like no-ip.org or similar, you can use just your MobiLinc Connect account for your Dynamic DNS needs.

What do I need?

The following is needed:

1. MobiLinc HD, MobiLinc Pro, or Orchestrated MobiLinc for iOS or Android.
2. Active MobiLinc Connect account and an ISY series controller running firmware 4.6.2 or later with the MobiLinc Connect portal installed and connected to your MobiLinc Connect account via the MobiLinc app.
3. Active MobiLinc Connect subscription for your ISY.
