Phillip Frandler, principal at CIF Property Management, manages over 450 commercial and residential units, but when security issues plagued his personal residence he installed the MobileCamViewer application from mobiDEOS to be a click away from his home.
Phillip was already looking into mobile surveillance technology when an unhappy, now former tenant vandalised his property following a lease-breaking incident issue that involved pet ownership. The tenant was arrested following the episode, but Phillip knew he had to make a quick, intelligent decision to ensure his family’s safety. He chose MobileCamViewer because of its general ease of use.
“It’s click and view,” says Phillip. “I use the application on my iPhone and iPad, and have peace of mind that everything is fine in seconds.”
Phillip also uses the application to keep an eye on vendors coming and going at his home. He uses multiple services that bill him at an hourly rate, and was recently overbilled by a cleaning service. The evidence captured using MobileCamViewer influenced him to quickly replace them, and he monitors the new company more closely to ensure they spend the correct amount of time at his home.
Phillip hopes to expand his use of MobileCamViewer by integrating the application with cameras at some of his other properties, specifically his commercial units.
“Commercial properties usually have problems with trespassing, vandalism and dumping,” he said. “By using this application at those properties, it will allow me to cut down on the amount of times I need to pass the property to make sure everything is fine. One quick look and I will be able to see if the garbage was not picked up, or if the landscaping is acceptable.”
Phillip expects that integration with a DVR will also help him capture license plate numbers of property intruders so he can report them to authorities. MobileCamViewer offers a snapshot feature, where the user can take a single image or a series of images from a particular camera for reference while remotely monitoring locations.
MobileCamViewer offers secure, reliable carrier-grade cell phone-based video surveillance and remote monitoring solutions, providing “anytime, anywhere” mobile video surveillance for virtually every situation. Its compatibility across many smartphones, tablets, cameras, DVRs, NVRs and video servers — as well as simple integration with PC and MAC-based iOS systems — enables MobileCamViewer to comply with both new and existing network infrastructures. The basic MobileCamViewer application is free, with incremental costs for premium service users.
