The iDVR-PRO Viewer App for Android lets uses view all of the security cameras connected to any iDVR-PRO surveillance DVR from any Android mobile or tablet device. Users can view their security cameras in single, four, eight, nine, and sixteen camera grid views.
The app works in landscape mode to take advantage of the 960H widescreen CCTV format supported by the latest iDVR-PRO models. 960H CCTV cameras capture video in 16:9 aspect ratio, which takes advantage of the widescreen format of almost all modern mobile devices and monitors. Please note that the new 960H iDVR-PRO DVRs will also work with traditional non-960H CCTV cameras (they are backwards compatible).
Android App Live Security Camera View
The below images were captured using an 8 channel iDVR-PRO8A model recorder and show the one, four and eight camera views using a Samsung Galaxy S III phone. If we would have used a 16 channel DVR for our demo with more than 8 cameras connected, the 9th channel would also have video in the 9 channel grid view that you will see below.
Android App Recorded Video Playback
In these screenshots, we captured how to playback recorded surveillance video from the DVR’s hard drive from the Android app. Users can bring up the display and menu controls that are seen below by single tapping on the app. To access the search and playback feature in the app, users tap on the search icon.
After the search icon is tapped, the video timeline scrubber is visible where users can select the date and time that they want to playback video from.
After the user selects the exact date and time to start playing from, controls appear on the screen to playback the video in forward, reverse, fast forward, and fast reverse. Users can also pause the video when it is playing back.
Users can return to the live camera view in the app by tapping on the live view icon in the upper right hand corner of the app.
