Our customers already use CheckMyCCTV to monitor the maintenance condition of thousands of remote CCTV systems. With CheckMyCCTV Connector, it’s now possible to monitor CCTV systems even when there is no external access to them.
Many CCTV systems are connected online these days, which means that CheckMyCCTV has no problem connecting to them. However, when CCTV systems are installed behind a firewall or on a company network, it’s more difficult to offer a remote maintenance monitoring service without having to open outside access via the router or VPN. Not any more…
CheckMyCCTV Connector is a simple solution which allows the checks to be conducted from within the remote network, and send the results back to your CheckMyCCTV software for monitoring.
What is CheckMyCCTV Connector?
CheckMyCCTV Connector is a lightweight application which resides on a Windows PC, Server, or Virtual Server on your customers’ network. It performs the maintenance checks by accessing all the CCTV devices on the internal network and reporting the results back to your CheckMyCCTV software through our web portal via a HTTP connection.
