Video Transcript

The MobileCMS app allows users to connect to the IDVRS video surveillance records from CCTV Camera Pros using an iPad or iPhone. In this video we will demonstrate connecting to the four channel IDVR E4 using an Apple iPad. We start by launching the MobileCMS app on our iPad. On the device list screen I tap on the plus button to add the DVR to connect to. In the name field users can choose any name they want for their connection. In the IP field I enter the IP address of the DVR followed by a colon, and then the port number that the DVR is operating on. The default port is 7000. Next I enter the admin user name and password, then press done. The app attempts to connect the DVR, and if successful the DVR is added to the device list in the app.

To log in to the DVR I tap on the device in the device list. A connection is established and we can see the four camera view of the DVR we just connected to. I then browse through the single camera view of camera one by double tapping on the screen. I am switching views to the other cameras by swiping my finger across the screen. I go back to the quad screen view by tapping on the four camera grid icon in the app. With the eight and 16 channel IDVR models users can also view nine and 16 cameras on a single screen by tapping on the nine or 16 grid view icons.

In addition to support for remote viewing using the iPad, the IDVR also supports remote viewing using iPhone, Android, and Blackberry cellphones. In addition to mobile phone support users can also log into the IDVR from both Windows and Mac-based computers using Internet Explorer on Windows, and the free Mac DVR viewer software that is included for Macintosh.
