You cannot control home appliances remotely over the EE mobile network unless their manufacturer provides some sort of Cloud-based solution that monitors them continuously.
This is cuz EE mobile network uses Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT), which means that you don't get your own public IP address but share it with other users. So you can't be uniquely id'ed on the Net by unsolicited accesses. This is unlike fixed BB.

thanks for that just had a look and there is a cloud number presume thats the port number which i have to forward

That doesn't sound like what I'm talking about. A port no. doesn't come into it.
A Cloud-based solution involves the home appliance "phoning home" regularly to its manufacturer so that no unsolicited access is required for them to know where it is. Then you login to your a/c on the manufacturer's site & it talks to the appliance on your behalf.

Don't think so. If they provide a Cloud-based solution you would just see the DVR controls on their website and just rewind & play whatever you want to see on their site.
What model DVR is it?

You should be able to download an app to see your cameras, you will not be able to see what you have recorded, but should be able to see what is going on live. I think the recordings you can only see when at home. If you had the equipment installed, then speak to your supplier.

Ah, yes, in a Clould-based solution it could also be a mobile app as well as the website.
I have an app as well as going to D-Link's website for viewing my D-Link IP cams. You do need to register on the website 1st.
I don't see why it shouldn't also apply to DVRs.

What router is the DVR connected to?

Sorry, I thought you were using a mobile BB router. Please ignore all I said earlier as it was about the limitations of mobile networks.
Have you port forwarded the necessary ports of these devices & tested them?

@dougvcd, with my system, I right click to get the settings up for my dvr and then guide, and then on the XMEye either click on + or search device, and it should then show up.
On mine the guide on the dvr is the welcome to the configuration where I have to click next. My dvr is specific for the cameras, not sure what you have, and I have two monitors, one in the kitchen-diner and one in the sitting room, as it is also a way of keeping an eye on my disabled daughter, as well as for the front and back of the house.
