Monitoring your home or business from your smart phone
This is one of the greatest advantages of new web camera technology. When you have your web camera installed, and the router at the location has been programmed correctly, then you will be able to view you camera on the internet. That part of the install is the hardest part, programming the router takes advanced internet and computer skills. ACD has 24 years of computer experience and we understand all the issues that you run into when programming routers and firewall issues. So once that is in place, the process of viewing the camera on your smart phone is a simple $8 app for android phones. There are other apps for Blackberry, Windows, and Mac phones to view your camera live on you smart phone. The configuration takes almost no time at all. The big part is building the camera network at your home residence or you business and programming the router at that location to pass the images across the internet. ACD can be a remote advisor and help design and support local installers if the installation location is out of our service area.
Smart Phones and webcams are a perfect combination because the camera can now be viewed at almost any time from any location directly from your mobile smart phone. The solution varies between phone provider networks and phone types. For example the smart phone types would currently be IPHONE, ANDROID, WINDOWS, BLACKBERRY, and PALM type smart phones. The IPHONE is already capable of viewing the AXIS brand live web cameras on apple’s platform, unlike the other platforms which require a phone APP to be downloaded from the app market place. We recommend you download a better viewing app for the IPHONE as well, and each market place will have several options for cam viewer programs. We use the Droid 2 and downloaded the phone APP IP Cam Viewer for Android Devices by Mr. Robert Chou, and have been very happy with it. The App on the Android market was less than $8.00 one time purchase. With the Android APP you are able to catalog your cameras to quickly live, and you can use the widgets provided to make your smart phone home screen show live viewing. One super plus with smart phone viewing is the ability to zoom in on the screen. With a normal laptop you cannot zoom in on the screen, but with a smart phone, you can zoom in on your live steaming image, a big bonus not realized until you have it.
The advantages of buying an IP Camera app for your phone include the capability to view Highway Cameras, the ability to view many other brands beyond AXIS. When you activate a camera viewer APP for your smart phone be aware you will be using a lot of data usage, a lot. So be proactive and make sure you have an unlimited data plan on your smart phone provider so you don’t have a big surprise on your bill. There should be no extra bills beyond the one time purchase of your smart phone APP. For simple viewing, there should be no additional fees
