Our friendly CCTV Viewing Widget is a simple but extremely useful PC program that allows you to have a single camera live on your PC screen in a resizable window. The window stays on top of other applications so that you can keep an eye on key areas like a reception or nursery without breaking from your work. The window can be with or without a frame to suit your requirements.
This option will display any video being processed by an alien DVR.
Easy channel switching
When viewing a DVR with multiple cameras you can choose channels to display and set a cycle-time which determines how long it stays on a channel before moving onto the next.
Talkback to site
The handy talkback feature allows you to talk into a microphone connected to the PC and out of a loud speaker connected to the DVR such as the VoiceOFF. Perfect for unmanned areas to welcome visitors or as a tool for managers, supervisors or security staff.
As well as being able to view cameras from a DVR on the same network as a PC, you can also view cameras from a DVR remotely over the internet. Great for keeping an eye on another site or your home when youíre at work.
Lock it down
By right clicking the window you can choose to show or hide the frame around the window. With the frame showing you can resize and reposition the window as you need. When you hide the frame this locks the window so you can go about your work without accidentally grabbing the widget.

Will the CCTV Viewing Widget get in the way when Iím working?
No, not at all. The CCTV widget can be resized and repositioned as you require. When you’re happy with the position you can lock it in place so that you don’t move it by accident.
