Viewtron CCTV surveillance DVRs support remote access from iPad and iPhone mobile devices using the free Viewtron app for iOS. In this article we demonstrate how to setup the Viewtron surveillance DVR to be accessed remotely using the Viewtron Mobile DVR Viewer App. The Viewtron app enables users to remotely view their security cameras live.
