Video Transcript

The IDVR-E4 surveillance recorder from cctvcamerapros includes a free DVR viewer iPhone app that lets users log into their recorder and view live video from an Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device. This video will demonstrate the app using an iPhone 3GS.

I start the app by typing on the icon on the iPhone desktop. I first need to add my DVR to the device list by tapping on the plus sign. In the name field you could choose any name for your DVR. I will use IDVR-E4 since that is the model recorder that I am using for this demo. Next I type my DVR IP address in the host field. Please note that you must include a colon and a port number of the DVR on the end of the IP address. Last I enter the user name and password and then tap done.

The app will test a connection to the DVR and if successful the DVR is added to the device list. To view the DVR tap on the device in this list that you want to access. The app connects the DVR and the default four camera quad view is opened. I tap on the OSD button to hide the camera names and date. I then double tap on camera one to see that camera in single view. I can access the other cameras in single camera view by swiping my finger across the screen. You can easily browse to and from cameras by swiping back and forth. I can go back to quad camera view by tapping on the quad icon.

This DVR viewer app is also capable in viewing in nine and sixteen camera grid screens using the eight and sixteen channel model IDVR recorders. If we wanted to configure and access a second DVR we tap on the home icon to access the DVR device list again.

CCTV Camera Pros is very proud to offer this free iPhone app for our IDRV video surveillance recorders. We believe that this is the best DVR viewer iPhone app available for viewing CCTV camera systems. If you would like a demo on your iPhone to see for yourself please contact us by visiting Thank you for watching our video.
