DIY Video Alarm Verfication

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jun 04, 2012

Video alarm verification may improve intrusion monitoring, but having alarms flow through a central station can be awkward. Those services are complex 'event billed' plans whose costs can be difficult to estimate. Not only that, but requesting to see video from the monitoring station seems backward. If you own the equipment, should you not have full access to it, anytime you want?

In this note, we examine a DIY approach that works with Videofied products.
