Do all home monitoring kits allow you to view the cameras on your phone?
Yes, the majority of modern home monitoring systems available on the market offer remote access functionality. These systems, provided by specialized companies, allow users to conveniently control and view camera footage from anywhere using a mobile phone or tablet. This feature makes remote monitoring a popular choice for home surveillance as it provides continuous access to the camera feeds even when away from home. Investing in a home monitoring system with remote access capability ensures that users can easily and securely monitor their homes at all times.
How to set up home monitoring by phone?
To correctly set up home monitoring for remote access on a phone, you first need to properly configure the system on the recorder. The key step is to enable P2P (Peer-to-Peer) connection on the recorder. Once the P2P status in the network settings shows “online” or “connected,” you can install the manufacturer’s dedicated software on your smartphone. After installing the software, log in or register within the application and proceed with adding new devices. The easiest way is to add devices using a QR code. During the adding procedure, choose the option to scan the QR code, which can be found on the housing of the device being added or in the P2P section of the network settings on the recorder or camera you want to add. Once the code is scanned, the application will automatically search for the devices on the internet. To complete the adding process, provide a custom name for your system and the access password set during the recorder’s installation. After these steps, the application is ready for use.
Can I use home monitoring through my phone using WiFi?
The answer is yes. In fact, you can easily use home monitoring through your phone if it is connected to a WiFi network. However, it’s important to remember that the installation of the devices should be done correctly. Otherwise, we won’t be able to utilize this option. If everything is properly installed, you can access your home monitoring through your phone and WiFi network.
Why is it beneficial to have the ability to view home monitoring through your phone?
It is the most convenient and fastest way to access this type of system. We always have our phones with us, allowing us to quickly check what’s happening in our home even when we’re away. Another advantage is that phones are always powered on, so we don’t have to wait for them to start up like a computer. This means we can always have control over what’s happening in our home and have the assurance that our property is safe.
