App Description

DVR.Webcam is a cloud-based DVR (digital video recorder) app that uses Apple's iCloud as its cloud storage. The app turns your iOS device into a cloud-based surveillance tool and monitoring tool that will stream and store live video from your device’s camera.

Unlike other cloud-based DVR solutions, the app does NOT require monthly fees to store your recording. It simply uses spare storage on your iCloud account.

The app supports the device’s built-in cameras, as well as IP cameras (MJPEG, JPEG, or H.264) on your network.

The app automatically records camera’s video (in the case of built-in camera, audio as well) and streams it over to your personal iCloud account. You can define X number of days to keep the DVR recordings in the cloud, and the software will automatically manage the storage for you.

You can view your DVR recordings stored on iCloud within the app itself. You can even view live recording remotely from web. For example, you can use one iOS device as the DVR recorder at home, and use another iOS device (or Windows or Mac computer) for remote viewing when you are away.

There is no need to configure firewall or router for remote viewing. Recording is secured within iCloud, and therefore it is still available even if your device is stolen.

The free app supports up to 8 hours of DVR recording. Unlimited recording can be upgraded via in app purchase.
