Software Compatibility

It is important to understand that CMS is a generic acronym for Central Monitoring Software or Client Management Software. CMS software is usually related to remotely viewing security cameras and managing CCTV DVRs. Many people are under the misconception that there is generic DVR viewer software available that will work with any DVR. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Typically each DVR manufacturer develops software that works with only with the DVRs that they supply. There is firmware present on the board of the DVR that allows integration with the specific CMS software application. This concept also applies to mobile apps for iPhone and Android.
