Watch CCTV Camera Video Surveillance on TV using Chromecast

This video demonstrates viewing live surveillance video from CCTV cameras on a TV by using a Google Chromecast. The cameras are connected to an 8 channel CCTV DVR, iDVR-PRO8A.





Video Transcript

Here's quick video that demonstrates how to watch CCTV security cameras on a TV using Google Chromecast. Here's a 42" LED TV with a Chromecast device already installed. We have the video input of the Chromecast selected. I'm going to move the TV up here and make it smaller so that I can put my Android mobile phone down here. On my Android mobile phone I have the Chromecast app running and I'm going to bring up the menu and select cast screen. It searches for all the devices on my network, which I only have on Chromecast device, so I select it.

Then it begins to cast the exact screens that's on my Android. I'm going to minimize the Chromecast app and open up the iDVR-PRO viewer app. I'm going to connect to my DVR. This is an 8-channel CCTV DVR. Initially I'm brought to a single camera view but I can pull up the menu of the app and switch to the 4-camera view. As you can see, the TV is just mirroring exactly what I'm doing on the app. I'll switch to the 8-camera view and the TV switches to the 8-camera view. In addition to the live camera view you can also do recorded video search and playback, again, because the Chromecast is just mirroring whatever the app is doing on your TV screen. I'm just going to go back to live view again. That's it. That's how you can use Chromecast to watch security cameras live on your TV. .
