CCTV to mobile phone

One of the cleverest uses of technology Ive seen recently, and in fact what inspired me to start this blog, is the CCTV to mobile phone solution from Qeeps.

Ive seen this solution in real life and can't believe that such amazing quality is possible from a standard mobile phone.

You are able to see the live view from any of the cameras on your DVR over GPRS. Ive seen similar solutions before and dismissed them due to the poor quality but the Qeeps solution works really well.

I reckon I was getting a good 5 frames / second of clear video footage, and was even able to move PTZ cameras around by using the keypad.

Im getting the system installed at home and will review some of the features as I explore them.

Innovations in the Security Industry

Life in the security industry is an interesting one.

The challenge of securing a premesis leads to some interesting solutions.

Of primary interest to me is CCTV. I want the best quality of viewing wherever I am. After that I want to be able to be in control of my security system. I want the best features at my fingertips when I am on the move.

I travel the country regularly and meet many of the manufacturers of some cool technology. I aim to discuss some of the more original solutions I come across on on this blog.
