How to connect monitoring cameras to the Internet
Posted on 2013-01-13
A client called and asked for help. His mother is failing but refuses to leave her home. She's fallen several times in the last few months. He's tried various things, like a call button, but she forgets to carry it with her.
The client set up six cameras around the house. He says they are connected to a DVR, the DVR is connected to a router and the router to a cable modem. I haven't seen the setup yet, but that's how he describes it.
He wants to be able to monitor his mom over the Internet from his laptop when he's at work. I'll know more when I go to his mom's house and check out the setup, but would like to get an idea what kind of configuration might work in this case. Is there any particular software that would be useful?
