Firmware update
On 2 January 2020 Foscam released new firmware for the 2MP cameras D2EP, R2M, FI9912P and FI9912EP. In this firmware (2.x.2.48) we added the dynamic rich media function, shortened the P2P connection time and fixed some bugs. The firmware can be found om our downloads page. You can also install the firmware in the app.

Foscam DDNS service discontinued from 31 December 2019

Due to DDNS remote access technology’s lower security status, Foscam has to close DDNS application entry. Cameras will not support using Foscam dynamic domain name (DDNS) to remote access from 31st December 2019. Customers who do not use Foscam DDNS will not be affected.

Foscam focuses on security products, security is the most important. DDNS remote access technology has a lower security level than P2P remote access technology. Therefore, DDNS remote access technology does not meet Foscam's requirements of security in future developments.

If you still use Foscam DDNS, please be sure to read the instructions to adjust your settings (if applicable).

The instructions are in Dutch. If you have any trouble reading them, please contact us at support team for translation or other questions about this subject.
