Most manufacturers of IP cameras provide users with the ability to store and view on their cloud services. The advantages of the method are simple configuration, which requires minimal programming skills.
The main advantage of cloud technology is that it is not necessary to purchase white (static) IP addresses to identify the camera on the network. Currently, this type of address is provided by cellular operators for an additional fee from 200 to 900 g / month. Thus, the Cloud-based surveillance method is the most accessible in places where the Internet is exclusively mobile (via mobile operators).
The available services include the following services:
- Ivideon supports its own brand Nobelic cameras and Hikvision’s third party devices.
- YOULOOK supports Axis, HikVision and Vivotek cameras.
- Camdrive supports exclusively equIPment from GoPro itself.
- IPEYE allows you to view the image from your GoPro production camera and any others that support the RTSP protocol; resolution is not painful 5M, you do not need to buy recorders. cameras are connected via routers.
- Spacecam, designed to view RVi cameras (not all models), HiWatch, SpaceCam.
- Ezviz (based on Hikvision), allows the connection of external motion sensors, door opening, alarm buttons.
When choosing a cloud, they take into account the peculiarities of tariff plans, the cost of cameras and available equIPment.
Setting up and connecting is different, but in general, the aLGorithm is as follows:
- They buy cameras, connect them to routers to access the Internet.
- Install the application on the smartphone (IPhone) if it will be used as a camera.
- Register a personal account on the cloudy service.
- The address and serial number of the camera are registered in the equIPment settings. It is possible to use a QR code.
- Press the “search” button in the cloud program.
- The service finds the camera and establishes a connection. Carry out additional settings, achieving stable illumination and accurate triggering of the motion sensor, which is guaranteed to start recording.
The cost of subscrIPtions changes from time to time, sometimes the service provider provides significant discounts. you should carefully study all the offers.
The program interface is laconic and intuitive. Several cameras can be connected to one transmission channel. The standard features include a motion detector, which triggers recording, night mode (with minimal illumination), two-way communication. The manufacturer provides space on the cloudy service for storing records. With the owner’s permission, other users, such as family members, can view the recording. The described functionality is free.
Paid subscrIPtion offers improved image quality and additional storage space in the cloud.
The free app has an HD viewing function that sets it apart from the competition.
Recordings are stored optionally in Google Drive or Dropbox.
There is a scheduler in the settings, which allows you to set the working time by day of the week. For example, in the evening or on weekends, when the user is at home, you can turn off automatic recording on command of a motion detector, which will save Internet traffic. This is important when connecting via mobile networks.
Available surveillance technologies for mobile internet
Smartphone surveillance can be organized in various ways. Each of the options will require the correct selection, installation and configuration of equIPment.
For private use, it is preferable to choose inexpensive components. Take into account the skills of working with digital devices if planning an independent installation.
The relatively inexpensive options for monitoring mobile internet are:
- Direct in-camera connection using mobile apps;
- Browsing through Cloud services;
- Using broadcasting from p2p devices. digital cameras.
The choice of the method depends on the availability of equIPment and the quality of the Internet in the place from which it is planned to broadcast.
Free program with a full set of functions for viewing. Transferred from smartphone.
At an additional cost, it is possible to install the program on several IP cameras and simultaneously monitor the image from them on one mobile gadget. The subscrIPtion price includes disk space on the developer’s cloud for storing files.
Need for observation
The minimum financial investment required to connect the camera to the phone pays off with the peace of mind of the property owners.
Mobile internet surveillance provides:
- Security of the house and the surrounding area during the absence of the owners. if an intruder is found, you can quickly come to the country house, call private security structures or the police.
- Transmit the results of remote monitoring of the territory in the evening and at night for a timely response to the appearance of unwanted visitors.
- Receiving a signal from the camera in all rooms of the house, apartment or in any corner of the garden area.
- Observe the behavior of children, hire staff, pets.
- Monitoring the work of company (office) employees, taking timely action against violators.
Free mode provides storage of recordings from one smartphone for 30 days on the manufacturer’s cloud.
For a fee, it is possible to record around the clock.
The disadvantage of the program is the delay in the image for a few seconds before real time, which does not greatly affect the security functions.
Features of observation in the country
When installing surveillance in homes where the user is absent for a long time, it is necessary to take into account the important features of building systems.
Be sure to purchase power supplies with a redundancy function. if the power is turned off, access to viewing will NOT stop. It is necessary to use equIPment with low energy consumption in order to save on paying electricity bills. In addition, it will extend the backup power runtime.
The software and the hardware itself must support the function of switching on by the command of the motion sensor. Continuous wireless signal transmission over GSM networks to a mobile phone reduces the remaining limit, and it makes sense to receive information from rooms where the situation does not change.
Built-in memory cards will help to recreate the events that took place if the broadcast to the Internet was interrupted for any reason.
Options how to connect surveillance to the phone
The introduction of new technologies by cellular operators allows you to receive streaming anywhere in the world. Surveillance for a private house via a smartphone can be organized independently. Monitoring the situation in real time It will not be superfluous for owners of suburban real estate and summer cottages.
Setting up Zyxel Keenetic
I will show it using the example of my home router ZyXEL Keenetic. First, we connect to the router and go to its settings. To do this, enter the address of the router in your browser. It is usually indicated on a label under the body of the device.
- The required relay (NAT) address configuration is located in the Security section. If you have a different router, look for this section.
- Now we enter a descrIPtion of the service and forwarding. Our camera will have IP 192.168.1.40. In the line “Interface” you need to specify the input Internet interface. I have this “Rostelecom” by the type of PPPoE connection. Click “Save”.
- Now from any browser enter the external IP address and you will be taken to the camera.
To do this, connect to it. Connection can take place both via wire and Wi-Fi. The standard camera address is specified in the manual. Your task is to enter the camera and set the settings for your Internet center. That is, so that the camera is on the same subnet with your router.
We set the first 3 digits in the IP device, the same as on the router. But we change the last figure. For example, if the addresses are 192.168.1.1 in the Internet Center, then 192.168.1.160 can be put into the cameras. Set the mask as 255.255.255.0, and set the router address as the gateway.
How to connect to an Internet surveillance IP camera?
Today we will talk about a rather complex topic, or rather, the issue of connecting and accessing an IP camera via the Internet. It is easy to connect an IP camera, and it is quite simple to log into it in the local network. But getting access from the Internet is much more difficult. The fact is that a home or any other router that acts as a gateway must receive an external IP.
But often this “IP” can constantly change. There are several “IPs”:
- Static (white). ideal, your ISP provides you with a static address that never changes. Unfortunately, not all providers do this, and as far as I know, this procedure is paid.
- Gray. changes with a certain frequency. That is, if the network router from which the signal goes to your router reboots, then you will again catch a new IP.
- Dynamic. constantly changing. Now it is rarely used, since many services simply stop working. For example. online banks.
Now a reasonable question arises. how can you connect to the Internet surveillance camera. Here you must first of all have a white IP, otherwise it is possible to get access, but after resetting the “IP” you will lose connection with the router. First you need to find out or set IP on cameras.
- Camera setup
- Setting up Zyxel Keenetic
- How to set up on TP-Link
How to set up on TP-Link
Here we will use port forwarding. I recommend changing the port on the device to 80, although often it already has this configuration right away.
- On the right side, select “Forwarding” and then go to the “Virtual Server” section. Next, “click” on the “Add” button.
- Specify the external port from which you will enter. Next, the IP addresses of the camera that is connected to the router. Specify the IP port of the device. And we keep.
- We reboot the router. To do this, go to “System Tools”. “Restart” and click on the button. After that, online access should be open.
- In the “Internet” section go to the fourth tab. Now Click “Enable Port Forwarding”. Specify ports and service name. Also, do not forget to enter the IP cameras.
- To apply, press the plus sign and then the “Apply” button.
- Finally, reboot the router. After that, the surveillance camera will be available from anywhere in the world.
How to view surveillance cameras over the Internet
Number of observation points: 1 or 2 or more (unlimited!) Webcams (IP cameras, USB, analog or wireless cameras).
Terms: A great distance from the camera (at least on the other side of the planet!). The ability to view from anywhere in the world. The ability to place online from a camera or several cameras at once on the website.
To implement this scheme, you will need one of the equIPment options:
(Just connect a network IP camera. You do not need a computer for work, more expensive, but reliable)
1 If There will be only one IP camera, and with a connection to the local Internet network via cable (UPT-twisted pair Ethernet), then you need to select only the usual IP camera. 1 PC. over, the presence of Wi-Fi in the camera is not required. all IP cameras have a wired Ethernet connector. The camera is plugged into an Ethernet network connector with access to the Internet using a cable you received from an Internet provider. over, when connecting to the Internet in your GoProvider, indicate in the agreement that you need a static IP address. Access and viewing from the camera is carried out by IP, for this it is enough in any browser in the “address” line (Not in the search engine! Namely at the top, in the “address” field) Type http: // your IP address and press Enter. and that’s it : You will be taken directly to the page with. Generated by your IP-camera. There are also models of PTZ and PTZ IP cameras, which provide a page with the ability to control the camera online: rotate it, zoom in and out.
Note 1. Configuring the Internet connection in the IP camera itself. First, you need to connect the computer to the IP-camera via patchcord (ordinary Ethernet UTP cable), go through the browser to the IP-camera settings (in the browser, in the “address” line, type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. This is the default address have all IP cameras) and configure: specify the IP address (static IP address received from the provider) and the login / password for connecting to the Internet, also obtained from the provider. Then you need to click Save and reload (Reboot or Reload). Please note that now, in order to enter the IP camera settings again, in the browser in the “address” line, you will need to type http: // your static IP address and press Enter.
2 If There will be several IP cameras. from one or more pieces with a connection to the local Internet network via cable (UPT-twisted pair Ethernet), or ADSL, then in addition to cameras, a router (router) is required. The router has an input for connecting the Internet from the provider (if the provider has inserted an Ethernet cable to you, then you need a router with an Ethernet connector, and if ADSL, then with a connector for a dedicated line or a telephone line with a splitter). The router also has Ethernet output connectors (there are models in which there is also a Wi-Fi output. to which you can also connect wireless IP cameras with Wi-Fi). When choosing a router, buy such a model so that the number of outputs is not less than the number of IP cameras connected to it per one Internet connection point. Well, and accordingly choose a few ordinary IP cameras and / or Wireless IP Cameras with Wi-Fi. When connecting to the Internet in your GoProvider, indicate that you need a static IP address and a communication speed of at least 128 x Number of IP cameras, kbit / s, but more is better. with a margin! For example, if you connect 10 cameras to one access point, then the tariff from the provider must be selected with a write speed (usually indicating the read speed in the contract, and the recording can be lower) at least 1280 kbit / s, but it is better to take more, because. When 2 people are connected to 1 of the cameras, the traffic from it doubles. 1280 kbit / s. calculated if 1 person is connected to 10 cameras at the same time. But do not dramatize everything like that. everything will work at any speed, but slower, and besides, there is no such thing that several people are constantly connected at the same time! Access and viewing from the camera is carried out by IP and port. First, you need to connect your computer to one of the external connectors of the router via a patchcord (ordinary Ethernet UTP cable), go through the browser to the router and configure routing: specify the ports and IP address. Each IP camera needs its own port. To do this, in the browser, in the “address” line, type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter (all routers have this address by default) and you will be taken to the router settings, then went to the transfer section (depending on the model, usually Routing or Virtual Server), click Add, in the window enter the port from the external network, for example 8082 and where it will redirect to the internal network, for example, to IP 192.168.1.2 and port 80 (standard), for the second camera. 8083, 192.168.1.3 and 80, for third camera. 8084, 192.168.1.4 and 80, etc. Then you need to click Save and reload (Reboot or Reload). To access any of your IP cameras, it is enough in any browser in the “address” line (Not in the search engine! Namely at the top, in the “address” field) Type http: // Your static IP address Port and press Enter (for example, if the provider gave you addresses for example 18.104.22.168 and to get to the first camera we enter http://22.214.171.124:8082 or to the second one. http: //126.96.36.199: 8082). You will be taken directly to the page with. Which is generated by one of your IP-cameras. There are also models of PTZ and PTZ IP cameras, which provide a page with the ability to control the camera online: rotate it, zoom in and out.
Note 2. Settings for internal LAN in most IP cameras. First, you need to connect a patchcord (ordinary Ethernet UTP cable) to the computer to each of the IP cameras, go through the browser to the IP camera settings (in the browser, in the “address” line, type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. This address all IP cameras have by default) and configure: specify the IP address of the internal network (and the addresses 192.168.1.1 are already taken. this is the address of the router), that is: for the first camera By changing its IP addresses to 192.168.1.2. Then you need to click Save and reload (Reboot or Reload). Please note that now, in order to enter the IP-camera settings again, in the browser in the “address” line, you will need to type http://192.168.1.2 and press Enter. Do the same for the second camera: Connect the patch cord to the computer, go to it at http://192.168.1.1. In its settings, we change the address to 192.168.1.3. Save and reboot (Reboot or Reload), in the future its address will be 192.168.1.3. Similarly, other cameras. by changing the IP: you can assign any in princIPle, the main thing is that they DO NOT repeat and the first 3 digits are the same, and the last one is different for each device (router. 192.168.1.1. The first camera is 192.168.1.2. Second camera is 192.168.1.3. Third camera is 192.168.1.4 and so on).
Example 2. Consider setting up routing in an inexpensive D-Link 500T ADSL router and two IP cameras. We assume that you have already connected to the Internet: you have chosen a provider, you have chosen the type of connection via ADSL with a static address issued by the provider, for example 188.8.131.52. And also with the login and password to the provider. Connect one by one each of the IP cameras to the computer and change its IP address in each of them as indicated in the previous Note 2. Assigns IP addresses 192.168.1.2 to the first camera and 192.168.1.3 to the second. Next, instead of the camera, connect a patch cord to the computer with a router. If you do not remember the IP addresses of the router or the password (if the router is not new), then there is a Reset button on the back of the device: Turn off the power of the router, wait 10 seconds, press Reset for a few seconds and Release. Reset to default settings done!
We go through the browser to the router settings (in the browser in the “address” line, type http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. This is the default address), enter the login and password (by default, the login is admin, the password is admin).
We go to “Home”, then to “WAN” and in the login, password fields, enter the login and password received from the provider. The “Static IP” field should be detected and show the static address allocated by the provider automatically. The router is connected to the Internet. Now he has to constantly keep the Internet connection. Go to “Advanced”, then to “Lan Clients”. There will be a list with all the IP addresses from the internal network, which our router will serve. Add new IPs one by one for each of the cameras: enter 192.168.1.2 in the “IP Address” field and the device name in the “Host Name” field, for example CAM1 and click “Add”. Similarly, add the second IP-addresses for the second camera: in “IP Address”. 192.168.1.3. In the “Host Name” field. CAM1 and click “Add”. In the “Static Ardesses” section, 2 new IP addresses should appear: 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3. You can also add one or more “extra” IP addresses, for example 192.168.1.101 and 192.168.1.102. And by connecting 2 computers to the connectors of the router in addition to the cameras, we will get computers connected to the Internet from which you can fully access the Internet (for each computer, go to the “control panel.” “Local network connection” and set the IP-address in the field: 192.168. 1.101 Mask: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.1.1 [IP-address of the router] DNS: 192.168.1.1 [IP-address of the router] In the first computer, In the second, everything is the same, only in the IP-address field: 192.168.1.102).
Go to “Advanced”, then to “Virtual Server”. This is the section with the list of routes. Select “Lan IP”. 192.168.1.2 and create the first route for the first IP camera: in the “Rules” window, select “User” and click “Add”. In the window that opens, enter Camera1 in the “Rule Name” field, select TCP in the “Protocol” field, enter 8082 in the “Port Start” and “Port End” fields, enter 80 in the “Port Map” field. For the second camera, select “Lan IP “- 192.168.1.3 and create a second route for the second IP camera: in the” Rules “window, select” User “and click” Add “. In the window that opens, enter Camera2 in the “Rule Name” field, select TCP in the “Protocol” field, enter 8083 in the “Port Start” and “Port End” fields, enter 80 in the “Port Map” field. Go to “Tools”, then go to “System” and click “Save and Reboot”. After about 10 seconds, the router will boot with the new values and activate the new entered routes. Now, when you access from the Internet at http://184.108.40.206:8082, you immediately go to the first camera (the router receives a request for its external static IP 220.127.116.11 and port 8082, and so on. It has a route configured for this port. it immediately transfers the user to the internal IP 192.168.1.2 and standard port 80). Similarly, the second camera can be accessed from the Internet at http://18.104.22.168:8083. Please note that in this model of the D-Link 500T router the comments of the “Loop Back” mode. ie. You cannot access the camera connected to the internal network from a computer also from the internal network by accessing the external IP address! THOSE. From a computer with an IP address 192.168.1.101 (used in our example), connected from the inside to the router), shouldn’t we go to the first IP camera (192.168.1.2) at http://22.214.171.124:8082! To log in from your computer, you need to go to this IP camera at http://192.168.1.2 or 192.168.1.2:80 (80 You can leave it blank. this port is always used by default, if not entered). over, from all other computers, except for those that are connected to your router internally, the camera will always be available at http://126.96.36.199:8082. The second IP-camera is the same: from our computers we go to the address http://192.168.1.3. And from all the rest from the Internet. at http://188.8.131.52:8083.
(Connect the usual analog wireless, analog wired. For work, you need a computer that is always on, the cameras themselves are cheaper than IP cameras in cost, except for the cost of the computer and the electricity it consumes ;-))
1 Analog Cameras: This option requires an analog wireless camera and / or an analog wired camera. A total of 4 pcs. (40, 31 or 22 pcs. Tech and those)
2 To convert analog signal to digital you need a 4-channel capture device. 1 PC. You can connect to 8 cameras to one computer, for this you will need capture devices. 2 pcs. In total we will have 44 = 8 channels for connecting analog cameras.
3 Computer or laptop.
4 Software, for example WebCamXP. in its configuration in example 3, see below.
(Connect a wireless USB camera or a regular wired USB camera to the IP camera mode. Wired USB cameras have a cable to the computer about 2 meters long, some models can be connected via a USB extension cable up to 10 meters, but not the fact that all USB models. cameras will work on a long cable. Most of them work confidently at 4 m. (2 m. In the camera itself, 2 m. Extension cable), on longer cables, most USB cameras start to “glitch”! This does not apply to wireless USB cameras. a computer that is always on, the cameras themselves are cheaper than IP cameras in cost, except for the cost of a computer and the electricity it consumes ;-))
1 USB cameras This option requires a USB wireless camera and / or a USB wired camera. A total of maximum 4. 8 pcs. (Limited by the number of USB connectors on one computer, there are usually 4 or 8 of them. over, some may be occupied by other devices, for example a mouse. There is an output. there are USB splitters. so it will be possible to connect 16 cameras, but you need a powerful computer! )
2 Computer or laptop.
3 Software such as WebCamXP
Note 3. To enable analog, wireless and USB cameras to work as software emulation of the same functions as in IP cameras, namely broadcasting to the Internet, there are a number of programs, such as WebCamXP
Example 3. Configuring Software Using WebCamXP Program The WebCamXP program in its functionality is most suitable for use as an organization of viewing from cameras via the Internet, because. Supports almost everything you need:
“XP” in the name of the WebCamXP program does not mean that it works only under the Windows XP operating system! WebCamXP program is universal and works under all operating systems, for example: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2003 / Server, Windows 2008 / Server and even Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) and Mobile PC
There are two modifications of this program: paid WebCamXP PRO and free WebCamXP Free, the difference is that only 1 camera can be connected in the free version. Both versions can be downloaded on the official website of the program developer here- WebCamXP
But there are also unofficial free versions of the full-fledged WebCamXP PRO program with support for an unlimited number of cameras, with a crack. search the Internet Patch webcamXP PRO 5_Patch.Exe. It is not recommended to use the patch for commercial purposes, but only as an introduction, because Only the official version respects the developer’s copyright.
So, download, for example WebCamXP PRO and Install it on your computer. Procedure for setting up the program:

A program for viewing surveillance cameras via the Internet. Oops, all the same faces
Hello my dear readers! So the evening of the weekend has come, which means that you don’t need to get up early tomorrow. Therefore, you can not sleep to post several new publications on the blog.
And now the author will continue the story about how a small program for viewing surveillance cameras over the Internet can make your life much easier. over, this program is already familiar to us.
With regard to making life easier, the author was referring to the comment of one of the blog readers, who expressed out loud this interesting sentence:
So, if you remember, in the last article we already dealt with the WebcamXP application in some detail. But there we discussed in detail the scheme of locally GoPro viewing the image from the webcam.
But today everything has changed and we just need remote access to our system. And here is the solution, as always simple and understandable for a simple layman. So let’s get down to the details quickly.
From recent blog posts, you already know that in order to “reach out” to the local surveillance system from the outside, you need the following components:
Of course, if you have a permanent “IPshnik”, then no problems should arise. But if such happiness has passed, then you will have to suffer with dynamic names that cost money.
Well, okay, we are NOT afraid of difficulties, so let’s get down to business. So, in order to organize viewing of home cameras via the Internet using the WebcamXP program, you need to do the following settings.
As mentioned earlier, if you have a static IP address, then the first thing you need to do is run the DynDNS Updater application on your computer (the link was above):
Naturally, a valid dynamic name must already be written in it. Let me remind you that recently this service has become paid. You can use it for free only during the trial trial period.
Well, okay, to hell with them, with the bourgeoisie. Move on. At this step, we launch our program for viewing cameras over the Network and immediately go to the settings section along the path “Web / broadcast-broadcast HTTP”:
So, that’s done, okay. Now we can say that the program itself is actually ready for use. But for access from the Internet, you also need to open its working port on the modem.
As you can see in the picture above, WebcamXP runs on port number “8080”. Here it is necessary to “forward” in the settings of the home router. But Zaostrov will not pay attention to this, since this process was described in great detail in this publication. If you haven’t read it, then the time has come.
Using the example of the author of the article, as a result, the following parameters came out in the modem:
Of course, do not forget to check the correctness of the settings made on the 2IP.Ru website, in the “Port check” section:
Now we can safely say that the job is done and our program for viewing surveillance cameras over the Internet will finally work in full force. So let’s try.
We will test this system on an old smartphone of the author of the article. To do this, we launch mobile data transfer on it and in a standard browser we drive in the address, which can always be viewed at the very bottom of the application:
And this is what we have opened at the exit. As you can see, there are quite a few functions:
You can choose viewing modes, adjusting the interface to the smartphone’s resolution, and so on. Meanwhile, the program on the computer fixes the connection of our device, displaying interesting information:
There is also one very interesting feature here called “Gallery”. This section is a photo archive, which can be viewed remotely. It is configured in the “Observation-gallery” section:
Here you can specify the interval for creating photos, specify specific cameras as source, and also define the maximum number of stored images.
Now, if you connect from a remote computer, you can see the Saved photos in the section of the same name:
Well, guys, as you can see for yourself, our wonderful application for viewing surveillance cameras through the world wide web is “plowing” with a bang. This means that the goal set at the beginning of the article has been successfully completed.
But there is one more important nuance, which is worth mentioning in the end. See, if you specified in the program settings Volatile IP addresses of the computer, and a dynamic name (as in the case of the author), then there will be no access from the local network.
However, this issue is easily resolved. If you no longer need to view cameras from the outside, then you can simply specify the real “IPshnik” of the computer in the web server settings:
If you want to have access both from the inside and from the outside, you should do one simple procedure. Find the hosts file on the path indicated in the picture below:
And write in it in a separate line your existing dynamic name and IP address of your home PC. Picture to help, for clarity:
Now, the exact same operation must be performed on all computers in the home network and everything will work fine. Checking in action:
And in conclusion, I would like to tell you about one more cool trick that is available in the arsenal of WebcamXP. Using a special code, you can embed the camera image on your website, or any other resource on the Web.
This is done in the section “Tools-HTML Code Generation”. Who needs it, study this function more carefully for yourself, because everything is very simple there:
That’s all, our experimental program for viewing surveillance cameras over the Internet is completely ready for battle and the defense of state property. It seems to me that all the questions and subtle nuances have been addressed.
But if anything, please in the comments to the article. We will discuss everything and try to resolve it. That’s all for now and see you again. And now the author once again wanted to remember his youth. Remember this kind of music?
View from Android devices
Viewing from mobile phones and tablets on which the Android OS is installed is carried out using the gDMSS lite or gDMSS HD lite program. These applications are free, you can download them on the Play Store, which is available on any phone or tablet with Android OS.
View from IPhone and IPad
For IPhone phones (the model does not matter) there is a program iDMSS Lite, you can download it in the App Store. Idmss Lite is a free application and it allows you to View in real time everything that happens at your facility.
To view surveillance cameras from IPad, you need to download an application from the App Store called iDMSS HD Lite. It is free and allows you to simultaneously view up to 16 cameras simultaneously.
Viewing a surveillance camera over the Internet
The main purpose of internet surveillance is to be able to monitor cameras from anywhere in the world. Monitoring can be carried out from various devices, be it a personal computer, laptop, IPad, IPhone, devices with Android OS.
For remote monitoring to work, the site must be connected to the Internet with a service called “external static IP address”.
