Glossary: Mobile phone browser support

Some IP security cameras such as the Vivotek FD7131 and Panasonic BB and BL IP cameras offer dedicated mobile phone browser support. With This, users with internet-enabled mobile phones can monitor their IP security installation from anywhere in the world without the need for bulky computers or landline internet connections. Mobile phones connect to the internet through the GSM network so as long as you are within range of this signal, you have access.

The Panasonic mobile phone browser allows a viewer to see a static image of their camera and is available by navigating to http://mobile. Those with pan and tilt IP security cameras can use the 8, 2, 4 and 6 keys on their keypad to move their camera view. Vivotek on the other hand offer a 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) viewer with their IP camera. This makes use of 3G compatible phones and requires 3G signal coverage, which is not available in all areas, but allows users to pull motion video streams from their IP camera.

With both of these viewers you must be aware of the bandwidth restrictions and pricing of your mobile phone supplier as repeated use can often use a great deal of data and can incur substantial costs.
