How to Connect to your Home Cameras from iPhone

Posted by on 7/11/2015 to AVM (Advanced VIdeo Management)

One of the most desirable features in a home security camera system, is the ability to access your cameras from your phone. We know how important this is, because we have been doing this since the days of the flip phone - REALLY. Back in those days, no other brand of home security camera system even dreamed of that level of remote access, giving our customers features that would WOW. Fast forward to today, and iPhone access to home cameras is almost a requirement for most systems.

This is great, because everyone with an iPhone would love to be able to quickly connect in, see their childrean, watch the nanny or babysitter, make sure elderly are getting proper care or even just check in to make sure the garage door was shut when you left home. However, there is a big difference in functionality between systems which should be considered when selecting a security camera system for your home.

Many camera systems are the same old hardware that they have been selling for years, and just add remote access functionality for phones on top of that. What this means to you, is that hardware that is designed just to process the video and record it onto a hard drive, is now trying to push the video out over the internet for your access = slower video with greater lag time.
