What is Remote Viewing (CCTV)?
Remote Viewing or Remote CCTV allows you view CCTV cameras from anywhere in the world via your home broadband connection. You can view the images though your mobile phone or via a laptop or PC.
How does remote CCTV work?
In simple terms you have the Sender (your house) and the receiver (your laptop/phone etc.)
The sender comprises of one or more cameras connected to a video streamer. The video streamer literarily streams the video signals over either a local network or the internet. In order for the receiver to be able to find the Sender it is allocated a unique IP address (18.104.22.168) or a URL (web address) e.g. http://www.remote-cctv.net.
The receiver comprises either a laptop \ PC (connected to the internet) or a mobile phone with a small program installed. The user enters the allocated IP or URL address and if required a user name and password.
I already have a CCTV system!
This system can easily be integrated into any current CCTV setup! Because of the way this system works all it needs is a video signal, this is normally split off from your current wiring located between your CCTV recorder (Video \ multiplexer \ DVR) and monitor.
I don’t have any CCTV cameras!
We can complete a whole CCTV system for you! Including overt Cameras around the exterior of your property with night vision, to covert cameras to keep an eye on your babysitter or au pair!!
Can this be used with my current Broadband connection?
This system will normally work with any type of broadband connection. If you have a fixed IP address and a compatible router then the system should work with little fuss.
I don’t have broadband!
We can setup all this for you! We can arrange to have broadband installed on your phone line. This normally can be done remotely.
Broadband costs less than £30 per month often with no setup fee.
Can this be integrated into my Home Network?
This should not be a problem; our experienced IT Professionals can integrate the remote viewing system into your current setup.
Can you install a Home Network at the same time?
Our IT Professionals can install a Home network either wired or wireless to fit your exact needs, whether it is just sharing an internet connection or printer though to remote storage and home entertainment systems.
What do I need?
For a basic system you only need a few pieces of equipment.
•Internet Connection - (Ideally ADSL(broadband))
•Video Server - (To send the CCTV over the internet)
The above is the minimum requirements; normally you would also have a device that is recording the CCTV. This would be either a video recorder or a DVR (Digital Video Recorder).
All you need to watch the Remote CCTV is either a PC \ Laptop or a mobile phone.
Note: A small program is normally required to be installed on the receiving device.
