Setting up a wireless security surveillance camera system that can be viewed on a iPhone or Android is easy to do.
There are many camera systems that can be setup to monitor a home when away. Some systems have 16 or more cameras with a DVR and can cover every angle of a home.
But to keep it all simple and inexpensive single camera solutions are often the best.
The advantage to starting out with a low cost camera is that all the lessons of installing a wireless camera setup for remote viewing on a iPhone/Android smartphone can be learned.
For example port forwarding on a router, while not difficult, often needs to be done to access a camera remotely.
The D-link DCS-930L is one such easy to setup camera system. In this example we will use this security camera and set it up for remote viewing.
The D-link DCS-930L can be viewed with a iPhone, Android, iPad, or Laptop/Desktop. Other features include a built-in motion detector and microphone to listen remotely as well as see.
The D-link DCS-930L camera can also use a Ethernet port but it is simple to setup the wireless by using the WPS button on a router. To set the camera up initially a Ethernet cable is connected to the router than after it is setup it becomes wireless or wired depending on what is selected.
The D-link DCS-930L comes with a setup disk to guide you through the setup process. It will go step-by-step through the process having you do things as it goes along.
After the camera is setup, to view it remotely you can use Dlink cloud service called mydlink which manages evrything or you can configure a App. The advantage of using Dlink cloud service is you can login and view the camera from any device from a laptop to a iPhone with out having to configure each device separately.
Here is the camera viewing from a laptop than a iPhone using mydlink.
