Some ways to monitor a surveillance system include through the use of a cellphone app or via a computer or television. Monitoring of a surveillance system can be done on-site or remotely.
Several home security systems offer the option of monitoring from a cellphone app that sends alerts when an alarm has been triggered in the home. Some apps allow users to view camera feeds while the homeowner is away. Security companies also frequently offer Web services for connecting to the home security system remotely. Many people connect their front door security camera to their television, so they can monitor who is at their front door before answering it.
