    Geovision has released a video surveillance iphone application which supports viewing security cameras connected to a Geovision surveillance DVR remotely. To download the application, open iTunes and search for gv-iview. This support topic has been opened for Geovision users to discuss their experience with the new Geovision iPhone appication.

    CCTV Camera Pros ran some tests today using the following setup instructions provided by Geovision:

    https://www.cctvcamerapros.com/Geovision-iPhone-Application-GV-iView-Setup-s/329.htm

    We were unable to get the live view working properly. Although we were able to connect to the remote playback viewer from our iPhone, we could not get the video to actually play. We were only able to pull up playback lists and see a still snapshot of the event. We will continue working on this and we will not complain for now being that this is a beta release of the GV-iView application.

    Please post your experience with using the Geovision iPhone application to this forum topic.

    Here is a link to an article on the beta release:

    Hello,

    I was able to get the liveview working. Make sure you enable the “Mobile” port under the Web section in GV. The image quality isn’t that hot though. Maybe there is an adjustment for it.

    I can access the RPB View but when I attempt to connect to Live View I get “IP/PassWord not correct!!”. I have been able to successfully access the Live View of a demo site.

    I installed the GeoVision Authentication Server from the DVD and created a user but still get the same message. Do I need the Authentication Server to use GV-iView? If not, I will uninstall it because everything else is working fine without it.

    Btw, I get this same error when connected via WiFi on the same network.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    I was able to get both pieces working. I am able to playback video through RPB. I was getting the same error for Live View, the IP/Password error. I had to disable ssh to get Live View to work. I am still poking around to see if I can get it to work with ssh enabled.

    warholim,

    Thank You for posting. After you are done with your testing, if you could share any information with the group about what you did to get it working properly, that would be much appreciated.

    Sincerely.

    I’ll try to post my existing settings tonight. I did see a blurb that you needed to be at GeoVision 8.3 so that’s the first thing I did. I upgraded to 8.3.1. I was at 8.2.

    Using Live View I am only seeing about a 2 second delay through Comcast/Internet/AT&T 3G network which is pretty amazing. RPB is also working well. The overall interface could use a bit of work…it’s not exactly intuitive. It took me a couple of minutes to figure out how to change cameras and to go back and forth between Live View and RPB.

    warholim,

    Thank You for posting the detailed Geovision iPhone setup information for everyone. Are you accessing on your local area network or remotely over the Internet. If you are accessing remotely over the Internet, can you please let us know which ports you have forwarded in your router to your Geovision PC?

    Thank You.

    I am accessing remotely using port forwarding, not through my own network.

    I already had the standard WebCam ports forwarded:

    21

    80

    3389

    5550

    6550

    And per the instructions for the iPhone app I forwarded:

    8866

    5511

    OK Guys… Hopefully this helps!

    After being on live chat with an actual Geovision help rep for about an hour both of us were becoming being pretty frustrated. I was getting the ip/password, and connection failed errors when I had everything correct.(Of course you have to update your geovision software, and make sure your ports and options are configured correctly.) I then took it upon myself just to check the shut all systems down option. After starting everything back up it worked like a charm. What a relief!

    Hi Guys,

    I got my DVR setup to work with the GV Iview app and it was working briliantly for the last couple of months with a decent live feed.

    Two days ago iTunes released an update for the GV iView app, so I downloaded it. Now the application wont even open!!

    Help anyone?

    naser,

    Are you still having trouble with the new GV-iView iPhone app?

    This is great site for info.

    I was just wondering if someone could tell me when the GV-iView app says its recording all cameras, where is this recording being stored, and how do I retrieve/delete it. Is it filling up my iPhone storage?

    Thanks

    Ivan

    Ivan3492,

    Thank you for the kind words about the support forum. I am glad that you have found it to be useful. When the GV-iView app displays that all cameras are recording, it is just reporting the current recording state of the Geovision system that you are connecting to. Nothing is being recorded to your iPhone, so you do not have to worry about video using up all of the space on your phone.

    Please let us know if we can help further.

    Sincerely.

    -Mike

    Hi. I got my new 3GS iphone last week and was happy to see that I can see my cameras live, using this application. Have followed the instructions and after a couple of tries it worked like a dream … And then, I have lost my connection on my home LAN… Even that the router is still one and connected to Internet it is not visible to the rest of the machines at my LAN (no reply when pinged). After reset it worked fine but when I used the GV-iView from iPhone on WI-FI through one of my access points, the connection is lost again…. Any ideas? The only think I have not tried is to apply bandwidth control.

    Russ,

    Are you making sure that the LAN IP address that is assigned to your Geovision PC is static and not changing? Some routers like D-link allow you to assign network devices static IP addresses. You can see how to setup static IP addresses on a D-Link router here:

    https://www.cctvcamerapros.com/DLink-Router-IP-Setup-s/162.htm

    I would check this out in your troubleshooting. It is a common thing that happens when power is lost and your router reboots or your router reboots for any reason.

    Thanks Mike. My IP is static on the Geovision PC. And it works fine with everything else. There is a UPS connected to the rack where all the network related items are (router, switch, PC). No power issues, no dynamic IP. And when I use Geovision remotely from the internet it is fine. The problem starts when I use it with iPhone. I will change the router next week and see what happens, but it is rather strange… I have a Linksys router at present.

    Russ,

    Have you upgraded to the very latest version of the Geovision software which is 8.3.2? This was recently released and is the first version to officially support the GV-iView app.

    I upgraded to the latest geovision 8.3 the iPhone app loads but it doesn't show any live feed for the cameras. But the playback works great I see the connected cameras listed and I cand select all the video listed and they playback with no issues

    Hi Mike,

    My company is currently interested into a iPhone app. Would GeoVision be willing to do some custom branding on the software and/or SDK or something in that manner?

    Thank you!

    Cordially,

    Russell

    Russell,

    I doubt that Geovision would do it but you may want to check with AppBurst iPhone app development company. They are CCTV Camera Pros mobile development partners.

    We recently completed development of the iCamViewer which is a FREE surveillance iPhone app that allows you to view up to 8 CCTV or IP cameras. Please click on this link to read more about it and to download it from iTunes:

    https://www.cctvcamerapros.com/CCTV-Camera-iPhone-App-s/362.htm

    Feel free to email me at mike@cctvcamerapros.net to discuss the custom iPhone app development further.

    Sincerely.

    Saloonguy,

    What GV Software are you currently running? I believe there was a problem with the beta version that was on 8.3 software if you are running this software you should upgrade to 8.33

    I am running Geovision 8.33 and GV-iView2.0 on my Apple iTouch. My ISP is blocking port 80 so I am using port 8888 and the default 8866 port for mobile. My firewall is port forwarding correctly because I can access via a remote PC. iView does not work after I changed to port 8888. I thought it only connected on port 8866? It seems like it also needs port 80?

    Is there any way to tell iView to use 8888 and 8866 rather than 80 and 8866?

    thanks!

    Did you change the port from 80 to 8888 in the GeoVision Webcam Server Settings?

    Thanks James

    koim,

    Does it work OK if you lower the frame rate? Are you sure that your Geovision card is compatible with the latest software version? You may want to contact Geovision to make sure that your card can support version 8.3. You can contact Geovision at download@geovision.com.tw.

    Please let us know if we can help further.

    Thanks.

    I thought I had everything correct and had missed the JPG check box under the webcam settings. The symptoms were the RPB working but the Liveview showing blank screens.
