Monitor your security system remotely with vMEye

Control and view up to eight remote feeds from cameras using this iOS app.

vMEye is an app that allows you to access and manage live video streams from security cameras or video encoders from your iOS device. The app is free through iTunes.

Using vMEye, you can connect to one or more cameras or video encoders, usually attached to a security system, and control that system from your iDevice. To use vMEye you provide the IP address and port of the cameras or encoders you want to connect to, and provide log-in authentication. You can select from up to eight video feeds, and there's a set of buttons to control the camera (for those with support) including movement (pan, tilt and zoom). Multiple feeds can be displayed at once. You can capture an image of the feed with the screen capture tool, saving to your local camera roll.

vMEye was easy to configure in our test, and we had our four security cameras connected and responding in less than 2 minutes. From our iPad or iPhone we could see the live feed anywhere we went, and control what we saw through the remote-control capabilities. For those who want constant connection to their security system, vMEye is an excellent app.
