hey guys i am doing a survey about how often you (SI, users )use mobile viewing and how important you think this function is.

now some vendors such as Exacq, nuuo, Qnap do have this but when you (SI, users) really need this? are you using?

For me it is important to view using my Andriod phone and iPad.

That was easily said.......

Just some background, I am running 10 cameras at my house that feed into a video server for recording, etc... I use my DroidX phone using a special app to only view selected cameras live and to receive alerts via email. I used my iPad using a special app to see all my cameras live on the much larger screen than the DroidX. Using the iPad, I can easily access my video server web interface to check camera recordings at anytime.

Although my cameras are at my house, the house is next door to a bank which was robbed at gun point last summer. It was amazing how fast I was called out of work by the FBI as they wanted to see all recordings since the bank's cameras were TOTALLY useless (as was told to me by the FBI). If some here wonder how the FBI knew about my cameras, it is obvious if you look at my house from the street. My neighbors must think I am a nutcase or running a meth lab while looking out for the "man". OK, enough said...

I have my cameras at our vacation home set to email me a few pictures immediately if there's motion. I use PIR motion detect so it's been 100% reliable. If that camera sends me an alert, someone is there, guaranteed.

If I'm home, I have luxury of viewing everything on my 24" monitor, but if I'm not, I can get a pretty decent quality image on my Droid X cell phone or my iPad. So I think it's very important to be able to view live video from a smart phone or pad device. Imagine calling the police, giving them a description of the intruder, how many there are, what room they are in, trumps an alarm any day.

hi Johnny that was a cool story thanks for sharing,

@ Buellwinkle

i can see that the mobile devices did help you monitor your property,
however, what resolution from a mobile device you would think "good enough"?

how many frames per second you receive from the server?

i'm evaluating some mobile application from NVR providers so have to gather more information if anyone else is happy to share, thanks!

I use 2 different apps to view my house cameras. I have 4 analog cameras on one dvr and 4 IP cameras on a server. It is important to me to be able to view when I need to as I have young teenagers to check out when I am gone to see they are staying out of trouble.

One of these apps lets me take clips and screenshots on the fly and save to my IPhone.

They are supposed to be adding a search function, but on a 3G network, I don't think that is feasible.

I use remote viewing every time I'm away from home.

I consider remote viewing with email-on-motion alerts (DI with external sensors, or in some cases video motion) a must-have function.

I use a Droid X phone, communicating to Luxriot Broadcast Server or IP Camera Viewer droid app.
