comes with the dongle because there are some standards established
Is this true of Swann and other brands of security cameras? I've hooked a
new controller up to old cameras and the cameras work fine, so I know there
are *some* kind of standards in security cameras. But how about viewing?
Swann is driving me crazy with Android apps (one loads and the other one is
incompatible with my tablet) and with PC viewers. I can't connect remotely
from anywhere, but I'm not sure if it's the fool Meraki system that's
installed in the customer's premises or if the stupid software doesn't work.
I happen to LOVE Swann's security camera equipment, but their documentation
is so limited, even though in their documentation they speak correct English
and even joke around.
I'm wondering if there is open source security camera viewing software out
IMPORTANT NOTE: Yes, I know about doing Google searches, but what I've come
up with is all about turning your webcams into security cams and such. I
already have the excellent Swann controller. Four of the cameras are
plugged in and it's been recording and playing back and all that. What I
need is something that interfaces with the system remotely. I've set up a
DDNS account, but when I try to log into it I get a "Comcast Business" login
page. I'm thinking it's Meraki that's holding up things, but I'm not sure
how I can tell, since the vendor doesn't allow me to access Meraki's admin.
