Many of our customers (especially businesses with multiple locations) need to be able to view multiple DVR locations at the same time from a single Macintosh computer. This can be done with the iDVR Mac software by launching multiple instances of the viewer application. At this time, the software does not have the option to do this from the menu of the app so CCTV Camera Pros wrote a command script that lets users launch additional instances of the DVR software.
To setup your Mac to run multiple instances of the DVR software:
- Click to download the command script.
- Save the file to your Applications folder on your Mac.
- The file is a .zip file, so you need to double-click on it to unzip and extract the actual .command file
- Double-click on the run-isms.command program to launch the application.
- Connect to your first iDVR following the instructions above.
- Double-click on the run-isms.command program again to launch another instance of the application and connect to a second DVR.

Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a complete surveillance system quote that includes a hybrid iDVR-E surveillance DVR, any number of cameras SD and HD CCTV cameras you need plus cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors? 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.
