iDVR-PRO Surveillance DVR Remote Access Android

iDVR Pro Surveillance DVR

iDVR-PRO HD CCTV DVRs support remote security camera viewing using the iDVR-PRO Viewer app for Android mobile devices. Users can also access their security cameras using the chrome web browser built into Android. The native Android app is the recommended way to access. The Web browser view allows user to view each of their cameras one at a time. In addition to live view, the Android app also supports controlling PTZ cameras and playing back video surveillance footage recorded on the DVR's hard drive.

Security Camera System Quote

Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a complete surveillance system quote that includes any iDVR-PRO model with cameras, cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors? We can even mix and match SD and HD security cameras because the latest iDVR-PROs are hybrid. They work with CCTV, AHD, and HD-TVI type cameras. As you have probably already seen on our website, we have 2, 4, 8, and 16 camera surveillance systems in pre-made packages. However, it is not possible for us to package up every combination and quantity of all the different camera models that we carry. So, we can also provide you with a custom quote with as many cameras as you need and a mix of any combination of camera model(s) based on your project requirements.
