Remote Video Surveillance

Optiview’s powerful video management software allows clients to monitor a live view of their remote security cameras when they are off-site. The on-site DVRs and NVRs can be set up to send alerts to you, the user, when activity is present that allows the user to log-in to live-stream their surveillance system. Equally as important, the remote monitoring software allows Clients to remotely access recorded video and playback without having to be present where the system is located. Now more than ever, the ability to monitor your residential or commercial sites without being physically present is a huge benefit of Optiview’s video management software platforms.
