Do you ever wonder what is going on at your home or business while you are away? These days an Internet Ready Digital Video Recorder can be found in more places than ever and at an affordable price. Keep in mind however that not all Internet Ready DVRs are capable of being viewed on a cell phone. As a general rule of thumb, if it doesn’t say anywhere in the product description that the DVR can be viewed on a cell phone, it is probably not cell phone viewable.
Recently more cell phone (more specifically I-Phone and BlackBerry) viewable systems have become available which means a wider selection and better prices. For example, a complete package can be purchased for around $750 with 4 cameras, an LCD monitor built in, the latest H.264 compression, and capable of being viewed on an I-Phone or BlackBerry.
There are certain factors which must be considered first before buying a system for the purpose of accessing with a cell phone. First you should check with your provider to find out how much data you are allowed to download each month. Frequent live viewing can use up to several megabytes of data per day so it is recommended that your plan include at least 500 Megabytes of data per month for downloading. Second there will be limitations to viewing live video on a cell phone. For example, your video will likely not be real time which means it will not look as smooth as it would when looking at your video on a monitor at the location of the DVR.
All things considered it is still a great feature to be able to see your Security Cameras from an I-Phone or BlackBerry. This is especially true when the safety of your family and the protection of your assets are depending on it.
