Video Surveillance From Your Couch
Camera surveillance monitoring in Phoenix just went to a whole new level. With the latest update from Alarm.com, you can now check your Video Surveillance system from your TV! Thanks to the Amazon Fire and Apple TV it will now be available all from your couch.
Imagine, it’s Sunday afternoon, you’re relaxing at home and it’s 110 degrees out, because Phoenix is a death trap of heat during summer, you hear someone knocking on the door and you’re not feeling in the mood to get up off the couch and open the front door to embrace the blazing heat, instead you just flick through your Amazon Fire to view who’s at your front door!
The newest Alarm.com application on the Amazon Fire allows you to view simultaneous video streams, you can now view up to four cameras from around your house! The Amazon Fire luckily has an app built into it for the Alarm.com system, unfortunately the Apple TV doesn’t. Fear not though, if you are using an iPad or iPhone you can still view your video surveillance systems from your TV as well if you have an Apple TV. In a matter of a few steps you can view your application on your TV if you have an Apple TV connected to it!
We’ll take you through the steps of how to view it, but this is a disclaimer, we do not offer technical support for this, so contact Apple if you are having issues getting it to work.
- Make sure your iOS device and Apple TV are connected to the same network.
- Turn on Airplay on your iOS device and select your Apple TV, once that is selected you will have an option to Mirror, make sure that option is turned on.
- Access your Alarm com app from your iOS device and you should be able to view the application and video surveillance on your TV.
These new devices bring Video Surveillance to a whole new level, instead of having complicated wiring at your residence for video surveillance, it’s now as simple as using your smart phone to stream the application to your TV or using an app built into an external device for your TV.
