Let’s start with the fact that today remote monitoring can be organized through any device with Internet access.

The mobile phone is NOT an exception in this regard. Viewing surveillance cameras by phone is possible in several ways:

  • Direct connection to the surveillance system;
  • Browsing with cloudy service;
  • Use of P2P technologies.

The last two methods require the installation of the corresponding client program on the mobile phone.

Despite the obvious convenience of this method of organizing control, it has one significant drawback.

Since a cell phone is, by definition, a wireless device, we need 3G internet to access surveillance cameras. Problems with its connection, of course, should not arise, but for our purposes it may not be fast enough.

You can see this for yourself by visiting the page that describes the features of monitoring wireless Internet. The main methods of wired connection are also discussed there.

By the way, this material concerns our first option for organizing remote access via a mobile device (phone or tablet). For THESE purposes, any system that has the technical ability to connect to the Global Network is suitable for us.

In this case, analog and network (IP) cameras connected to the recorder, computer or server can be used as the object part.

They are accessed through the phone’s browser directly via a static IP address or a DynDNS server.

True, all this is smooth in theory. In practice, viewing, even a small one, for example, for 4 cameras of a surveillance system in online mode is impossible. This already mentioned schodo is determined by the small bandwidth of the mobile Internet.


In reality, only one camera can be viewed at a time via mobile communication channels. If there is a wired Internet at the place of its installation, then the cheapest way will be to connect it to the network in any possible way (see here), and then organize its viewing by phone in the manner described earlier.

For a beginner, this may turn out to be somewhat difficult, since it requires a significant number of settings. the camera itself, a router, etc. To simplify this process, use a cloud monitoring service.

over, in this case, wires may not be needed if you purchase a camera specifically designed to work with the “cloud” wirelessly. There are quite enough such offers on the modern security systems market.

Cloud monitoring is also good in that it has a lot of additional options and capabilities, ranging from storing an archive on the side of a remote server and ending with the presence of various analytics tools. In addition, access to such a system is possible from any device with Internet access.

What not to flatter yourself about and what you can count on.

Megapixel resolution when viewed through a mobile phone, you are unlikely to receive. The reason is still the same. the wireless data transfer rate is insufficient for THESE purposes.

Online viewing. Let’s start off with. What is considered online surveillance. We will here mean a viewing mode at 25 frames per second. So, in order to ensure an acceptable image quality, this speed may have to be reduced.

Stability of work. 3G internet speed may vary depending on various conditions, for example:

  • Travel speeds;
  • Operator channels workload;
  • The number of repeaters in the coverage area of ​​your system, etc.

Nevertheless, when using one surveillance camera, it is possible to control the current situation at home, in the country or in an apartment via a mobile phone. Don’t expect much, but phone surveillance is possible.

SURVEILLANCE via smartphones

The organization of remote monitoring via any smartphone, for example, Android, can be implemented in several versions:

  • Using the device for remotely GoPro viewing of cameras;
  • Smartphone camera surveillance.

Previous material Examines just the implementation of the first method. This is quite a “serious” approach that allows you to solve such problems as the implementation of surveillance for a private house with the introduction of the phone on various types of phones: IPhone, IPad, Android.

The second option is of interest to those who want to save money on the purchase of a surveillance camera or like to experiment with high technologies.

In this case, you will need:

  • Any smartphone, albeit falling apart, but working;
  • Application for organizing the reception (transmission) of images.

Please note that surveillance viewer applications are different. For example, EyeLine Surveillance runs on Windows and supports web and IP cameras. This software is intended for building large systems and is no longer interesting for the designated purpose.

I want to note that I myself am not a supporter of creating a security system from improvised means, but inquired about this issue. The Internet is replete with the offer of such products as:

  • Alfred;
  • Manything;
  • IP Webcam;
  • Wardencam.

By and large, they differ little from each other. The general princIPle here is as follows: on a smartphone, which is planned to be used as a surveillance camera, an application is installed that can work in P2P mode (I gave a link to an article describing this technology above).

This is the main thing that any application for organizing remote access should be able to do. All other features such as motion detection, night mode, etc. are secondary and are selected by the user depending on the tasks at hand.

On the other side, there can be both Android and a tablet or a desktop computer. it doesn’t matter. It seems important that the mobile phone was NOT originally designed to work as a surveillance camera, which means that you will have to solve additional problems.

The main one is to ensure continuous operation for a fairly long time. The smartphone battery will run out very quickly (remember that it will also work on the Internet). Connecting to a charger is also a dubious option.

Thus, monitoring via a smartphone (Android or some other) on the Internet with its introduction as a camera seems to be a dubious decision, both in terms of reliability and operational safety.

How to connect Action Camera to your phone

Working with action cameras follows a similar aLGorithm. But every GoPro manufacturer has its own differences, which need to be told.

  • For correct operation, you need to download special applications from the manufacturer;
  • If the action camera does not connect to the phone, you should double-check the stability of the connection and the version of the installed software.

Instructions on how to connect Action Camera to a phone, using the example of 3 popular manufacturers

Action cameras are one of the most purchased gadgets for EXTREME photography. They are compact and at the same time can work in any conditions: from a simple walk around the city to mountain climbing or a long swim. To remotely control the device, it is synchronized with a smartphone. How to connect an action camera correctly, what applications to use for phones with Android and iOS. in the material below.

Yi Action Camera for Xiaomi smartphone

Connecting Action Camera starts with turning on gadgets and configuring phone settings.

The aLGorithm is as follows:

  • Turn on the device by pressing the large button next to the lens. She is responsible for turning on / off the camera. To quickly find it, you can see the instructions.

  • Launch PlayMemories on mobile;
  • Select a camera (network name. its serial number);
  • Enter the password, which is printed on the stickers with the serial number;
  • Go to the application and start working with the camera.

Why connect Action Camera to your phone

This will allow control directly from the phone. The smartphone will replace the external monitor and viewfinder (if the device does not have one), so that you can see the entire frame on the screen of the mobile.

With this connection, you can transfer files “over the air”, which simplifies work in those conditions where it is impossible to quickly send data by other means.

Action Camera GoPro

  • Go to the application and work with the camera through the GoProApp application.

Apps from Play Market to synchronize Action Camera and smartphone

What applications should owners of the second popular brands use, such as SJ, Sigma, Delta, etc.? In this case, you can use third-party applications.

Universal software listed in the table:

Mobile connection allows you to view, edit and share even when you are at a distance from the camera. The main thing is to follow the instructions from the manufacturer, and then the connection between the gadgets will pass quickly and without problems.

PrincIPle of operation

In the working process of connecting a mobile phone to a surveillance camera and further tracking the information received, everything is very simple. At the same time, such systems in which there is only one tracking device have maximum simplicity. In this case, you can even try to do without Wi-Fi. To connect, you will need to use a cable from an Internet provider connected to the camera directly.

To make the connection possible, you need to make sure that your ISP has provided a static IP address. If this is not the case, you need to negotiate with the service provider about such an opportunity.

At the next stage, you will need to open a mobile browser on your smartphone, and enter the address of the surveillance camera in IP format in the address period. In the event that all steps are performed correctly and correctly, an image will appear on the mobile phone screen, which is broadcast by the surveillance device. However, before that, you will need to configure all devices in the system in the appropriate way.

How to connect an IP camera to your phone?

Viewing information from a security camera has become very common from a mobile phone. It is difficult to imagine a modern person without a smartphone in hand, which is why the remote security function is in such great demand. At the same time, the organization of the workGoProcess can be configured in several ways.

In general, the transmission of the resulting image is possible to any device equIPped with the Internet. But for this to be possible, for example, on a smartphone, it will need to be configured accordingly, and then the data will become available. The setup process is generally straightforward.

To ensure the connection is as simple and convenient as possible, it will be necessary to use special software, created just taking into account the peculiarities and nuances of connecting a mobile phone to IP cameras. Depending on the specific GoPro software, the mobile connection function may be free of charge and is included in the pre-indicated cost, and in some cases it may be provided as an additional option on a paid basis.

How to independently connect a surveillance camera to a mobile

Most owners of houses and other important premises trust only themselves as much as possible. Therefore, connecting the broadcast from an IP camera to your mobile will be an ideal way for people to control everything that happens in their absence. And for such control, it is absolutely necessary to acquire complex devices at exorbitant prices.

Self-connection of the mobile to the camera will include a clear aLGorithm for installing THESE devices and some other devices. By connecting the entire surveillance system to the Internet, it will be possible to watch the broadcast from the IP camera, even being on the other side of the world. In this case, surveillance can be carried out not only from behind a mobile phone, but also through a tablet or laptop. In such systems, the security level of the transmitted data is distinguished by high parameters, so one cannot but be afraid that an attacker will connect to the channel at the time of broadcast.

We look at the connection of the camera to the phone

View IP Camera on Phone

The easiest way to ensure that the picture from the surveillance camera is viewed on the phone is to operate devices that have the P2P option. The firmware of such devices contains the corresponding software and a unique list of numbers representing the ID number. To connect to this camera, you will need to connect it to a switch or router, which will provide access to the network.

In the connection chain, the mobile phone will act as a monitor and also assist in system management. Therefore, you will need to download the appropriate software on your smartphone. In modern versions of security cameras, such software is in the usual factory configuration.

When the application is installed, you will need to launch it, and then read the QR code written there from the box or camera body. Having opened the next bookmark, you will need to specify the ID number there. In most situations, cameras have the ability to save data to an SD card so that you can view it if necessary.

Programs for the phone “IP-camera

There are a large number of applications that help you use your mobile phone to control everything that the surveillance camera captures. Such utilities differ in their capabilities, options and additional functions.

Developer Ubiquiti Networks offers a professional offering called UniFi. This tool allows you to carry out a high-quality organization of a mobile tracking system. In addition to computer operating systems, this utility also supports mobile firmware. Android and iOS.

When the setup process is complete, you can add all the IP addresses of the required cameras to the application. After that, the owner of the software will have the following options:

  • Shooting mode correction;
  • Show broadcast parameters;
  • Image setting;
  • Switch between all cameras;
  • Pan-tilt-zoom technology that allows for rotation;
  • Sound control.

The UniFi app delivers high-quality performance without major disruptions, as well as extensive customization and management options. Due to the fact that for work, you will definitely need an NVR, which is a special Internet registrar, then it will be possible to use this application in an office or a country house.

The network recorder allows you to connect up to fifty different surveillance cameras. In the case when there will be one or a pair of devices in the network, it is recommended to organize the process without using a recorder. Such savings will allow you to reduce equIPment costs, as well as reduce the cost of subsequent service of the entire created system. To be able to view the broadcast picture after shooting, in this application you can set up the function of recording to an SD card or saving to a disk on an overcast service.
Using a mobile application called TinyCam Monitor will allow you to simultaneously monitor what is happening in the field of view of several IP cameras at once. The program interface is designed for a maximum connection of cameras of sixteen devices. In the paid version, called TinyCam Monitor Pro, the possibilities are significantly expanded. For example, options such as:


Now let’s see how to connect to an internet surveillance camera. There are several ways to do this.

  • Connection via computer;
  • With the introduction of a registrar;
  • You can also connect the camera via the Internet directly.

In the first case, you need to use an IP camera connected to the router. After that, port forwarding is configured. If the above Internet connection has static (white) IP addresses, then access is carried out by entering this address directly into the address bar of the browser. Otherwise, you will have to use dynamic services (DynDNS).

If surveillance is organized using a recorder, then analog cameras can be used. Then the registrar connects to the router and the actions described above are performed.

The easiest way to connect the camera to the Network is to implement cloud surveillance services. To do this, your IP cameras must be supported by the selected service. The process can be simplified as much as possible by implementing equIPment specially offered by the cloud provider. By the way, the use of the “cloud” is possible in all described cases, and this is the best option.

It is best to use a wired internet to ensure a stable connection. Wireless solutions can “slow down” image viewing, and for a large number of cameras, 3G or even 4G bandwidth will not be enough.


To begin with, I will give some options for connecting surveillance cameras with signal cables and wires.

How to connect a surveillance camera to a computer or monitor is described in the second part of the article. By the way, here we will talk about analog surveillance cameras.

They can have two main types of conclusions:

  • Purely wired,
  • For connectors.

In the first case, the connection is made by twisting (which is strongly recommended to be soldered) or through terminal connectors.

As for the connectors, BNC connectors are used to connect the signal circuits, and the power circuit has a two-pin (two-pin) plug connector.

To connect the camera to any device, you need to have a connecting line of the required length with appropriate connectors. Combined coaxial cable can be used (power and signal circuits are isolated in common).

Alternatively, the voltage can be supplied with a separate cable. It all depends on the preferences of the installer, as well as the system configuration.

For example, if the power supply unit (PSU) is installed in the immediate vicinity of the equIPment to which the surveillance camera is connected, then both options can be used.

If the power supply unit is placed in a different place, you will have to use a separate wire to connect it. In each case, be sure to pay attention to the cross-section of the conductors (about their calculation here).

The connecting line on the opposite side of the camera must have a connector that matches the equIPment to be connected. It is obvious. By the way, when you connect the surveillance camera to the twisted pair, this equIPment will be the corresponding transmitter.

Now in some ways that you can connect an analog camera to various devices of the surveillance system.

How To Connect The Camera To The Phone

PC connection

There are two ways to connect a surveillance camera to your computer:

Using an input board.

It is inserted directly into the computer system unit and can have a different number of connection channels. Connector type. BNC. The package must necessarily include the appropriate software.

When choosing a board, pay attention to the system requirements of its manufacturer for the computer.

This option provides the organization of a full-fledged surveillance system with functions such as motion detection, archiving, search for recordings by time or event, sound recording, PTZ control (PTZ device, zoom), etc. Naturally, for each model the combination of capabilities will be different, so you need read the descrIPtion carefully.

Via USB converter.

This is rather pale, similar to an input board, but nevertheless also requires software (advice. Use only standard software from the manufacturer, you can, of course, find something on the Internet, but not the fact that it will work. There were precedents). Quite cheap, both in terms of money and capabilities, a way to connect a surveillance camera via the USB input of a computer.

Connect to monitor and TV

If you connect a surveillance camera directly to the monitor, then, of course, you can only watch the image online and no more.

Direct connection of the camera to the monitor is possible only if it has a composite signal input. These are usually specialized surveillance monitors, they are not cheap, so it is easier to use a computer monitor and a BNC-VGA converter.

When purchasing a converter, you should pay attention to such its characteristic as Resolution. As a rule, it is about 740×576 px, which corresponds to a camera resolution of about 420 TVL. Thus, in the presence of a high-resolution camera, part of it will be “eaten” by this device.

Consider how to connect a surveillance camera to a TV.

To do this, your TV must have connectors for connecting a composite signal (RCA). In this case, the central contact serves to feed directly the signal, and the external one is the screen (see photo).

Since analog surveillance cameras usually have either lead wires or a BNC connector, you will have to make a Corresponding adapter. For the version with a connector. on one side of the connector we put a BNC “male”, on the other. a tulIP and we connect them with a coaxial cable (resistance 75 Ohm) as shown in Fig. 1.

If the camera has wire leads, then we make the connection in accordance with Fig. 2. Be sure to turn on power to the camera. If the camera has 4 leads, then look at its passport, most likely two double wires will come out.

Yellow, as a rule, is always a signal, and red is a plus of power. The other two can be connected to each other. this will be common. But, in order to avoid complications, do not be lazy to find a descrIPtion of the camera.

After that, connect the Appropriate connectors and that’s it. Please note that you must select the Corresponding Mode to view:

  • “SOURCE” button on the remote control or TV;
  • Then on the TV screen the menu item “AV” or “composite”.

As you can see, nothing complicated.

How to connect phone to camera of Syma X5SW quadrocopter

As an example, consider the method of connecting a smartphone to the equIPment of the Syma X5SW copter. The camera of this machine is capable of shooting in 640×480 pix at 30 fps. Photos are of the same resolution. Communication with a smartphone mounted on the remote control bracket is supported through the antenna of the transmitter built into the wi-fi equIPment.

The drone may have flown 120 m away from the control panel, but the broadcast is interrupted already at ranges of 30-40 m. The manufacturer claims that the transmission is performed in real time. Experience shows that this statement is wrong. Channel has obvious time delays.

Now let’s look at the actual binding procedure

First of all, the pilot must download the SYMA FPV application to his smartphone. The corresponding QR code of the application can be found on the drone packaging or in the instructions for it. The code depends on which operating system the smartphone is running. iOS or Android. Owners of phones with Android OS may face a very unpleasant problem. the Syma FPV application is supported only by versions of Android 4.1 or higher.

If the program is installed, the operator can turn on the drone and start tying it. It will take up to 30 seconds for the flight camera to create its own access point, after which the operator can begin the procedure for connecting to the phone. He selects the settings menu in his smartphone, finds the wi-fi section in it and independently connects to the network, which appears in the list that opens on the screen under the name FPV wi-fi.

If a message about the successful completion of the operation appears, the pilot exits the settings menu, finds the SYMA FPV application in the general list of programs and opens it. A splash screen appears on which you need to press the START button. The reaction to these actions will be the appearance on the screen of a live image coming via wi-fi from the on-board camera of the drone.

On this background, five icons are placed, thanks to which the operator gets the right to record photos and. View the results obtained in the phone’s memory, monitor the wi-fi signal level and enter from the application. In the lower left corner of the screen there is an indicator that fixes the duration of the recording.

Live broadcast from UAV

Most drones with a camera have streaming capability. This mechanism is versatile and well suited for sports broadcasting, public safety, real-time crowd monitoring and second tasks.

Budget drones with a camera provide transmission over a wi-fi channel. The receiver is a mobile device (tablet or smartphone). This is convenient because the operator usually already has one of THESE gadgets. Thus, the organization of communication with the quadrocopter via wi-fi gives the consumer significant cost savings with acceptable playback quality.

How to connect a quadcopter to your phone. Instructions for a beginner.

How to connect a quadrocopter to a phone, we are very often asked by users with this question. The relevance of this task is confirmed by the fact that although most modern drones are equIPped with RC controllers, there are a number of models, communication with which is supported through a smartphone and special applications for it.

Most often, a wi-fi channel is used to work with this type of UAV. This control method is widely used in short-range flights, creating new possibilities and ideas for consumer-class models. Note that mobile devices are used not only to control the aircraft, but also to configure it, activate various flight modes, work with the gimbal and camera.

How to organize a wi-fi connection and how to connect a quadrocopter camera to a phone

Connecting a quadcopter to a phone via a wi-fi point is quite simple. The technique includes just a few steps:

Pros and cons of connecting via a Wi-Fi channel


  • The smartphone screen is used for real-time transmission;
  • All drone flight functionality is controlled by simple touching the screen;
  • It is allowed to use the built-in gyroscope for flight control;
  • Smartphone creates a familiar platform for most young users.


  • Weak control range;
  • Smartphone apps need to be updated regularly.

How to connect a phone to a computer. Vs nothing

Knowing how to connect a phone to a computer, you can use this opportunity to transfer data directly from one device to another.

And without the help of the Internet, and at a fairly high speed.

  • Existing connection options
  • Using Wi-Fi
  • USB connection
  • Bluetooth connection
  • Possible problems
  • What to do if the connection failed?

This is sometimes necessary, for example, to transfer photos from a smartphone camera to a PC or multimedia files from a computer to a mobile device.

For most modern phones, there are several ways to connect.

Existing connection options

If you need to connect your phone to a computer, several solutions are possible.

The main options are:

  • Connection via USB port of a computer using a cable;
  • Wireless communication via Wi-Fi;
  • Bluetooth embedded connection.

The choice of a particular option depends on the reason why all this is being done.

If, for example, you need to transfer a large amount of data (a movie, a recording, or even a game application), the easiest way is to use a cable and a USB connection.

The same method is best for using a smartphone as a webcam or modem.

Cord for connecting a smartphone to a PC via USB

Wireless connections will allow you to connect faster, although they provide a lower transfer speed.

They are also used if the PC or laptop has a Wi-Fi or “bluetooth” module, and the cord is not available at the moment.

Possible problems

Sometimes when you connect or try it, the computer starts installing devices and drivers. All the user has to do is wait until the process is complete.

If the automatic installation of the control program failed, it is done manually.

Usually the driver is located on the website of the smartphone manufacturer.

Sometimes there are situations when you have to enable debugging on your phone to sync properly. The developer menu is usually used for this.

After debugging, problems with connecting to the computer disappear.

Enabling smartphone debugging when connected via USB

Some models of mobile devices with less common operating systems (for example, old versions of Windows Mobile or BlackBerry OS) may NOT immediately connect to the PC.

To fix the problem, an option can help, in which the switched off phone is connected first, and only then it is turned on, which first causes the smartphone to be detected by the computer, and then the automatic or manual installation of drivers.

USB connection

When connecting via YUSB, users get the maximum opportunities:

  • Transfer data at high speed;
  • Use a mobile phone to access the Internet using a GPRS connection or 4G network;
  • Turn on your smartphone as a webcam and communicate with it, for example, in Skype. This option will be the best for users who have cameras on their PC.
    This is especially convenient, given that modern phones have image resolution at the level of the most expensive recording devices

The disadvantage of this method is linking a mobile device to a computer.

At the same time, it will not be possible to call from it or go to another room while the data is being transferred.

All that is required for connection is a cable (usually microUSB / USB) and a free port on the computer.

In most cases, you do not even need to install any drivers. you just need to select the storage mode, modem or webcam mode on your phone.

In this case, it is even possible to use a computer as a charger.

Options for connecting an Android phone to a PC via USB

Connect your phone via USB using a cable, you can see the notification below about connecting a new device.

After installing the appropriate drivers (usually requires a PC to be connected to the Internet), synchronization ends automatically.

What to do if the connection failed?

There is another option for data transfer, which can be used as a last resort. for example, when there are no Special Applications, the cable too, and there is no access to the Internet both from a PC and from a phone.

However, this option will require the presence of:

  • Removable flash cards (usually microSD) on a smartphone;
  • A card reader on a computer or laptop (in the latter case, this is more likely, because most even budget models have a reader for drives of different formats).

External slot for microSD card on a smartphone

All you need is to transfer data from the phone memory to a flash card, remove it from the device and insert it into a computer card reader.

Or do the opposite if information is transferred from PC to smartphone.

In some smartphones, you will have to take out the battery to perform the operation. but there are models with external access to the flash card.


Bluetooth connection

If you have Bluetooth on a laptop or, which is much less common now, on a PC, you can Synchronize two devices and using such a wireless connection.

To do this, both modules are activated and a search for compatible devices is carried out on the computer.

When the smartphone is found, it is paired via Bluetooth, choosing the option without using a passkey.

Useful information:

To work with many Bluetooth-enabled devices, we recommend using the BlueSoleil program. This is a professional tool for pairing a computer or laptop with mobile and perIPheral devices via Bluetooth. Supports all Windows versions, most smartphones, microphones, printers, TVs.

Using Wi-Fi

Connection via “Wi-Fi” can be called the most convenient and fastest in terms of connection time.

At the same time, data transfer is slower, and for its implementation you will need either a Wi-Fi router or an appropriate adapter.

There are several known ways to connect a mobile phone to a PC, but the fastest and easiest of them is to install a special application.

There are variants of such programs for all operating systems, including iOS, and their princIPle of operation is almost the same.

One of them is a free FTP server application, freely available on PlayMarket.

After installation on a smartphone, the program requires launch, after which it shows addresses, which you need to write in the address bar of “Explorer” on the computer.

This provides the ability to access the data of the mobile device as a regular folder.

over, the user can change, delete and add new files both on a removable disk and in internal and external memory.

Connecting your phone to a PC via Wi-Fi

The EASIEST way to connect to your phone from your computer. No USB over Wi-Fi

If you need to quickly connect from a computer to a phone or tablet to upload pictures, music or. But there is a USB cable at hand, then in this I will show you how you can connect from a computer to a phone via Wi-Fi

PC setup

Let’s assume that both devices have a Bluetooth module. To connect to a computer via Bluetooth, you need to activate the hardware on the PC. I will tell you how to do this using the example of Windows 10:

  • Go to “Windows Settings”, select the “Devices” section;
  • The “Bluetooth and other devices” page will open, where you will see a switch to enable / disable the function;
  • Turn the slider to On.

Additional connection settings can be found in the section “Other Bluetooth settings”.

Here you need to enable detection for the connected smartphone. check the box “Allow Bluetooth devices by detecting this computer”.

For detailed instructions see here:

Smartphone setup and pairing

Now, to connect your smartphone to a computer or laptop via Bluetooth, you need to turn on the module on your mobile phone. Everyone knows how to do this. he lowers the curtain (by swIPing across the screen from top to bottom) and click on the “blue tooth” icon. Now this very icon will be displayed in notifications at the top of the screen.

Now we need to link two devices. To connect your phone to your computer via Bluetooth, you need to add a mobile device. Click on the plus sign on top (where the inscrIPtion: “Adding Bluetooth or a second device”), select the type of devices. in our case it is Bluetooth.

The name of your smartphone will appear in a new window. We select it. On the PC, click “Connect”. The phone will ask you to connect. Click Pairing. At the same time, a pin code appears on both devices. You need it to match on your smartphone and PC.

After successful connection, the phone will appear on the “Bluetooth and other devices” page. Now, as soon as the wireless module is activated on the PC and smartphone, pairing between them will occur automatically.

To connect a Wi-Fi surveillance camera to a smartphone and control it from anywhere in the world, you need:

  • Router with Internet access.
  • An IP camera connected to it via Wi-Fi.
  • Smartphone with an installed application for Wi-Fi cameras, connected to the local network of the router for the primary connection.

By connecting the Wi-Fi camera to the phone, you need to create a more secure connection. Recommended:

  • Use a backup independent power line (exclude power interruption).
  • Use a backup Internet connection, for example, a modem of cellular operators (exclude a break in the Internet cable).
  • Use a backup access point independent of your power supply (exclude damage to the main router by configuring reconnections to a backup access point, which is probably in a neighbor).
  • Purchase a Wi-Fi camera that supports connection to several channels of a wireless network and rich alarm functionality (notification to a smartphone, e-mail, recording to network storage, sound recording, online snapshots, etc.).

If the router is configured, the access point is active, the camera is connected to a 220V network, connect them to a single network. Connecting the camera’s Wi-Fi to a smartphone:

  • There is a WPS button on the router body. Click her.
  • Go to the camera and press the exact same button on it (for this you have 2 minutes, but no more). If there are buttons, you can activate the WPS connection through the web interface of the IP camera. How to enter it is always indicated in the instructions.
  • After entering pairing mode, the first device will detect the second and connect it to its local network.
  • Connect your smartphone to the Wi-Fi network of the router.
  • Install the software to work with this surveillance camera.
  • Go to the application and make all the necessary settings to establish communication. The program provides step-by-step instructions.
  • Done. You have connected the Wi-Fi camera to your phone.

The question remains, what is this application? Each manufacturer specifies the software with which the Wi-Fi camera works. Usually, these are proprietary utilities aimed at working with equIPment from the manufacturer. But there are “universal” applications through which devices are connected to monitor different manufacturers.

An example of connection can be seen in the following:

Wi-Fi connection of surveillance camera to phone and applications for work

Modern Wi-Fi cameras have several protocols for connecting to devices. If earlier access was made via a local network and was NOT distributed within its limits, now for the same network with Internet access you can connect to a separate device, control and control the camera remotely. Let’s take a closer look at how to connect a Wi-Fi camera to a phone.

  • Applications
  • Unifi
  • Tinycam Monitor
  • Meyepro and MEyeProHD
  • Conclusion


The utility is a professional surveillance tool. It will help you connect the Wi-Fi camera to your iOS and Android phone. The wizard allows you to carry out the initial configuration of the camera by adding an IP address. Supports work with multIPle devices.

Main working points:

  • Switching between monitored cameras.
  • The main broadcast parameters are displayed on the screen.
  • Image settings.
  • Switching shooting modes.
  • Using PTZ technology to rotate the surveillance device.
  • Audio control.

Such a device supports the simultaneous operation of fifty observation devices, which is acceptable for an office building or a complex of several buildings. To work with 1-2 cameras, it is recommended to choose your own software or another application.

Meyepro and MEyeProHD

An application that can be tested on all functions before connecting a camera to it. With the help of a test outdoor camera, access to which is provided by the developers, you can:

  • Save the stream as a snIPpet and photo to a connected storage medium (SD card, network storage).
  • Use additional features for devices that support PZT.
  • Adjust settings and sound.

Setting up surveillance for viewing on a smartphone is as follows:

Tinycam Monitor

The application works with cameras directly, can support and show the broadcast of 16 devices in total. There are free and paid versions of the software. In the latter, the following functions are available:

  • If the camera is equIPped with a speaker and microphone, two-way communication can be organized through the app.
  • Activation of broadcast recording to an SD-flash drive, network storage via FTP (FTPS) or to the cloud (via http or https).
  • Audio transmission.
  • Motion sensors support.
  • Free developer support.


There are many applications on the network, but you can count on the fingers of one hand. We chose only those that deserve attention in the selection.


Setting up remote control of the camera from a smartphone is easy if a router is already present at its location and a Wi-Fi network is deployed. Some surveillance devices support direct pairing with a smartphone, but the connection is then limited to the Wi-Fi coverage of the camera adapter.
