The Camera plugs into your broadband router and can be viewed and controlled from any computer using the internet explorer browser*. Your camera will be password protected, providing you a secure means of image access. Caring Eye can help you setup your desktop and browser to create a convenient interface.
In a traditional surveillance system, cameras are connected to a Digital Video
Recorder (DVR) which controls the cameras and records images. This is an
expensive part of the the system and provides features necessary for security
surveillance but not required when just monitoring a loved one. It is also the
single point of failure in the system and can be expensive to replace or repair..
Caring Eye’s Elder Cam approach is much simpler and more affordable. The Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is removed from the system. You access the cameras directly and separately over the internet, each with its own user name, password and internet address. The weakest link is no longer an expensive DVR, but an inexpensive consumer grade network router.
