Remote View Security Camera System

Remote Access Anytime, Anywhere

Whether you're on team iPhone or team Android, the SCI View App has got you covered. With it, you can remotely monitor your system from any corner of the globe. Just make sure the system is connected to a stable broadband internet connection, and you're good to go.
PC and Mac Software

Computer Monitoring Options

Prefer viewing your security feeds on a bigger screen? We've got you. Our dedicated and free SCI Video Management Software is available for both Windows and Mac users, enabling seamless monitoring over the Internet. You can also access the system directly on a computer running Windows, Mac, or Linux by simply entering the IP address that your router assigned to the recorder into your favorite web browser.

Internet Optional

No Internet? No Problem

Wondering about the term "standalone DVR"? It's straightforward. Unlike many cloud-reliant recorders, our standalone DVRs operate perfectly fine without an internet connection. However, if you want to watch your cameras remotely, an internet connection is required to use the app or desktop software.
