    I was wondering if anyone knew if there is a way to use the ipad/iphone to view my surveillance cameras? It would be very useful for me. I currently do not have over the web viewing for my system, they are encrypted wireless cameras that connect to a receiver that records on a DVR in my safe via RCA cables. Just curious if there is a way to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

    You can definitely do some sort of make shift setup. I have this $3 app called iCam which allows me to view 4 different iSight Cameras through my iPhone. It also allows you to use other sources. I plug my analog to digital converter into my iMac and can stream any video signal to it. They have had a bunch of nice updates since I bought it like audio, push notifications for movements and automatic recording of motion events.

    Definitely one of my favorite apps.

    I already use a program called ipVision to view my Linksys network cameras on my iPhone. I assume it will be even sweeter on the iPad

    this was a hidden gem that i found a while back and I can't believe I got it for so cheap. this app could seriously be sold for $15+.
