Whether you’re looking to buy another CCTV monitor for your existing system or you’re just curious about prices, it’s worth knowing about a more modern way to keep an eye on your home or business.
CCTV Monitor Mobile Applications
There are a number of free apps these days that you can connect to your CCTV system, allowing you to view live and recorded footage on your mobile phone, wherever you are in the world!
Here at Guardian we recommend the free app called iVMS-4500 for CCTV systems. Better yet, the app is compatible with Android and iOS mobile phones.
Whether you’re on a much needed skiing holiday or you’re doing your food shopping down the road, you can open the app and check up on your property on the go.
One thing worth mentioning is that the app requires internet connection. If you don’t have Wifi access, the app will still work using your mobile’s internet connection.
What Can The App Do That A Conventional CCTV Monitor Can’t?
As well as being able to log into the front end of your CCTV device and watch live or recorded footage, you are also notified if there is a problem with your system.
If for any reason your system stopped recording for a second due to a technical glitch or extreme weather conditions, you would be the first to know. Without the app, you may not know when a problem has occurred.
We’ve heard that our customers and clients love the app because it gives them that extra sense of security and control wherever they may be. If they feel anxious or are just curious about the well being of their home or business, they can get peace of mind in a matter of seconds by accessing the app!
So Do I Still Need A CCTV Monitor At Home?
We’re definitely not saying you shouldn’t have a conventional CCTV monitor at home because we supply these too. It can be useful to have a monitor in your home office for a bigger picture when you have more time to sit down and re-watch footage.
However, in this day and age, technology is continuing to move forward and offer people more efficient solutions. That’s why we support the use of mobile security apps.
Installing the app and successfully configuring it with your CCTV system can be tricky, so when we install CCTV or take over the maintenance of an existing system, we also offer to set up the app for you too!
That way, you’ll know that the app has been set up properly by professionals who do this for homeowners and business owners on a daily basis.
