One of the primary benefits of IP camera is that you’re not limited to view your remote surveillance system on site. The advancements in surveillance technology have made it possible to view your remote security camera from any internet-enabled PC or smartphone. VideoSurveillance.com has outlined the key components of remote security camera system and surveillance app, everything you need to know in order to start viewing your security cameras off-site.
What is Remote Surveillance?
Remote surveillance enables users to view live video on a PC or laptop from just about anywhere in the world with internet access. To facilitate remote viewing, you simply type in the IP address of your network security camera in your internet browser like you would do on a website. This is done through DDNS and port-forwarding, which is discussed in greater detail further below. Once you’ve configured DDNS and port-forwarding and have obtained an IP address to view online, you can then begin to experience what it’s like to view your security camera system from a remote location. Remote security cameras are typically compatible with a wide range of web browsers. It is worth noting that specific web browser support varies by manufacturer.
What is Mobile Monitoring?
Remote mobile surveillance takes remote monitoring to a whole new level. Several IP camera manufacturers offer complimentary mobile surveillance apps that give you the ability to view and manage your security cameras from a smartphone or tablet such as the iPhone, iPad, or Android.
Many of these security camera apps allow you to view multiple cameras simultaneously, control PTZ settings, view recorded images, search through archived footage, play back events, and much more. Just like you would view your security camera(s) on a remote PC/laptop, you will need to have an internet data plan and IP address to do so. Remote surveillance is perfect for users who are often off-site, and therefore not able to be on the local computer system where their IP cameras are connected.
