Modern security devices now have the ability to stream high definition images instantly to your mobile or tablet device, offering instant access to home or business cameras at any time, from any location. Using a mobile application to access your video surveillance system provides enormous power and utility for you and your business – and many of our clients already reap the benefits.
A large proportion of camera manufacturers offer two components for each of their products: Video Management Systems (VMS) and Mobile Applications. A video management system acts as the central control centre for your surveillance system, allowing you to control the angle, field of view, recordings and more all in one place. The mobile application aims to provide extra utility, allowing security personnel, home owners or business managers to access a live feed and play back recordings from any number of devices.
With the ability to access all of your cameras at the touch of a button, you’re now able to monitor critical areas and supervise the storefront from your desk, at home or in the car. While there are plenty of benefits to accessing your cameras from a remote location, this luxury is largely dependent on the network speed to which your device is connected. A network or data plan with limited speed will produce much lower resolution, frame rate and overall image quality.
Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) control of a camera is one of the benefits of having remote camera access. As seen in our Hikvision Darkfighter demo, using this function allows you to control the zoom, rotation and focus of specific cameras, enabling you to carefully monitor areas not otherwise available to fixed cameras.
