Intelligent Designs Group, LLC is offering a BlackBerry version of their Total Control Suite of software applications to control video surveillance cameras. BlackBerry users can view and control live video streams from supported IP cameras and video encoders.
The Blackberry application is compatible with OS version 4.1 and newer. Best results can be found on newer models such as the BlackBerry Storm and Bold. The Storm version supports landscape as well as portrait mode to take advantage of the accelerometer. The application requires the proper APN settings setup on the Blackberry.
Pricing starts at $59.99 for a single camera version and currently runs up to $99.99 for a 16 camera version.
It does not require a network and is a way of viewing cameras remotely. This looks like a great way to set up Nanny-cam, dog-watcher, neighbor-snooping, or earthquake-watching uses.
Some of the features include:
- Support for Pan, Tilt, & Zoom (not available on all models).
- Use of trackball (when available) to move camera .
- Direct stream support.
- No video going through 3rd party servers.
- No monthly or annual subscription fee .
- Support for landscape and portrait mode (currently only Storm)
- Functions to easily change cameras while viewing.
- 'Previous Camera' and 'Next Camera' function in menu while viewing to automatically change camera.
- Function to automatically rotate through cameras based on time period. ,for instance set the application to rotate to the next camera every 30 seconds automatically.
