Since we have cameras at our offices and homes, it was only natural to want to see them on our new Android phones (Samsung Epic 4g).
We downloaded every app we could find in the marketplace and tried each of them out. Without a doubt, the best remote camera viewer was “IP Cam Viewer” by Robert Chou.
This app is only $10.00 to purchase, and free to use if you only have 4 cameras. The registered version will view all of our cameras at all locations as the app supports up to 32 cameras.
Will it work with your system? Chances are good that it will as it supports over 200 camera systems. It had settings for our office CCTV DVR where we have 8 cameras and our Panasonic IP cameras at the office (4 additional cameras) as well as the cameras that keep watch over our home, which are also Panasonic IP cameras.
We can view all of them at once on the phone, or view one large and several smaller frames. We can use the Pan-Tilt-Zoom functionality and a really cool feature is that we can enable the microphones and listen in at the remote site for the cameras that support that.
So if you are looking for the perfect app for your Android based phone, skip all the others, which seem to have annoying issues and lack of compatibility and download IP Cam Viewer Lite first. I bet you pay the 10 bucks and register it within 24hrs!
If you are wanting security / surveillance cameras for your Greenville or Upstate SC based home or business, we offer a wide selection of standard CCTV systems and IP Network Cameras, DVRs, NVRs, and more! Call us at 864.990.4748 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE – 2012-12-08:
This camera viewer software is STILL our favorite. We continue to evaluate every app we can to make sure our customers have the best tools in their arsenal to protect their property.
Robert Chou has an IP Cam Viewer for the iPad and iPhone too, and guess what? It is also the best remote camera viewer software I have seen on those platforms! There is support for more cameras than any other app I am aware of!
