If you have young children or live in an area known for crime, there is no doubt that home security is a priority. The main problem is that it can be difficult to keep connected to many surveillance systems while out and about. An application known as Blue Iris has addressed this issue through the use of proprietary mobile phone software that provides you with a wireless connection to home cameras.

Features and Benefits

We should note here that Blue Iris offers you a single point of contact as opposed to being forced to utilise a third-party system over a dedicated website. This is critical, for hackers may be able to enter into such portals and exploit them. Each session is completely separate from the others, preventing unauthorised access. Furthermore, passwords are never sent in plain text. This lessens the chances of someone else discovering the code.

Additional Options

Blue Iris also provides automatic push alerts in the event that a remote camera is triggered by heat, sound or movement. Recordings can be recorded on demand and if necessary, deleted. These files may be viewed at speeds of up to 64 times faster than normal for quick browsing.
