Remote-Monitoring-Blog-Image-12-17-15.jpgOne of the most important benefits of modern IP video surveillance systems is the flexibility in video management - using the power of the internet you can log into your system and see surveillance video at any time whether you are at work or not.

Remote monitoring allows you to monitor and manage your surveillance system from a computer anywhere with an internet connection using port forwarding (learn how to set up port forwarding). A mobile app, on the other hand, allows you to log into your system using a smart phone.

There are mobile apps for remotely managing your video surveillance system for both iPhone and Android systems. In addition, several leading manufacturers have mobile apps, including:

While specific features will vary between remote and mobile applications and manufacturer, in general you will be able to view live and recorded video and manage alerts. This gives managers and security staff greatly increased flexibility in how and when they respond to issues back at work if they are off-site for other projects, get notifications late at night or on the weekends, or on vacation.
