View Security Cameras on your Android PDA Phone or Tablet
So you have security cameras in your home or business, but you would like to be able to see them from your Android PDA phone or Android Tablet. Yes, this can be done. However, it will involve replacing your old VCR based system or DVR that doesn’t have Android compatibility with one of our Standalone DVRs or PC-Based Alnet DVR Cards. If your cameras have a standard BNC (coaxial cable with twist-lock style connector), then it will work with either one of our systems. Simply unplug your old recorder, and plug in your new Standalone DVR from Platinum CCTV, or a PC with our Alnet Systems DVR Cards inside.
Unfortunately, we know the next question…isn’t there a software we can buy that will allow you to view your cameras on your Android PDA phone or Tablet that doesn’t involve replacing your current recorder…Sorry, the answer is no. If your DVR doesn’t have android support, you will have to replace it with one of ours that does have android support. Good news is that in most cases, your current cameras will work, saving you a lot of time and money.
So how do you pick the system that will work best for your? Well a great place to start is the video below. In this video, we cover the benefits and features presented by both of our types of security camera systems to help you pick one to suit your needs that will deliver the features you desire from your Android PDA phone.
Once you have selected your system, you can find a Standalone DVR or Alnet PC-Based DVR card to replace your current recorder, so that you can start viewing your security cameras from your Android PDA phone or Tablet.
PS. Scared to configure your internet connection for port forwarding? Guess what, we already thought of that. We can even help you forward the ports through your internet service provider’s router to get it setup and running quickly.
