Mobile Applications

Watcher offers mobile applications for real time access to a video surveillance system.

It provides:

  • Watching live video from IP cameras with the ultra low latency
  • Viewing the archive with no limits on its depth
  • The access control based on a fingerprint or a PIN code
  • TLS encryption of video streams
  • Push-notifications about events
  • Downloading video screenshots.


Mobile applications need to know the address of your Watcher system to get video from it. Get your Operator ID that stores the URL of your Watcher system beforehand.

To get the Operator ID, you must log in to Watcher as an administrator. In the main menu, go to the Settings section, at the bottom of the page you will see the MOBILE APP and AGENTS block. Click the Connect button and Operator ID will appear in the operator ID field.
