Camera Remote Control via ISDN

 

If your camera is connected to the public telephone network via ISDN, you can call your camera from any telephone . Using the telephone keys, you then can control your camera remotely. The telephone must support tone (Dial Tone Multi-Frequency) dialing, sometimes also called touchtone dialing.

Note: This feature is not available for Basic cameras.

Configuring ISDN Audio Call-In

In order for the camera to answer ISDN audio calls, you need to configure this access in the ISDN Audio Call-In dialog first.

Enter the telephone number (MSN) in this dialog to which the camera will answer. In addition, you can select a message that the camera plays when answering a call.

Camera Remote Control

Once you have successfully called the camera, it switches to the audio mode set in this dialog. When you have selected "Listen", for example, you now can listen to what the camera microphone is recording.
