How to find CCTV that connects with cell phone?

If you’re looking for a CCTV system that connects with your cell phone, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind. First, you’ll need to make sure that the CCTV camera is compatible with your phone. Most systems will work with either Android or iOS platform, but there are some that only work with single platform (Android or IOS).

Once you’ve found a compatible system, you’ll need to download the app that goes along with it. This will allow you to connect your phone to the security system and view the footage from your phone.

Finally, you’ll need to make sure that the system is properly configured over Wi-Fi or internet. This includes ensuring that the correct IP address and port number are entered into the app. Once everything is set up, you should be able to view the footage from your phone without any issues.

Once you have downloaded the relevant app, open it and enter the IP address, port number, username, and password for your security camera. You should then be able to view a live stream of your CCTV footage.
