trouble getting into my camera system when away from home

I have a camera system installed, have the 100/100 service and theres times when i try to get into them to view the cameras and it won't connect. other times it gets right in.  Is there a setting that would give the cameras priority or maybe allow more bandwidth??

The 100/100 mbps plan is plenty of bandwidth. Try assigning a static IP to you DVR and opening the ports that your  camera system recommends.

And the DVR connects with ethernet, right? Not a wifi one?

Maybe it’s the app. Take a look at the Play Store or App Store reviews and see if other people have the same complaint.
