Here’s quick video that demonstrates how to
watch CCTV security cameras on a TV using Google Chromecast. Here’s a 42″ LED TV with
a Chromecast device already installed. We have the video input of the Chromecast selected.
I’m going to move the TV up here and make it smaller so that I can put my Android mobile
phone down here. On my Android mobile phone I have the Chromecast app running and I’m
going to bring up the menu and select cast screen. It searches for all the devices on
my network, which I only have on Chromecast device, so I select it.
Then it begins to cast the exact screens that’s on my Android. I’m going to minimize the Chromecast
app and open up the iDVR-PRO viewer app. I’m going to connect to my DVR. This is an 8-channel
CCTV DVR. Initially I’m brought to a single camera view but I can pull up the menu of
the app and switch to the 4-camera view. As you can see, the TV is just mirroring exactly
what I’m doing on the app. I’ll switch to the 8-camera view and the TV switches to the
8-camera view. In addition to the live camera view you can also do recorded video search
and playback, again, because the Chromecast is just mirroring whatever the app is doing
on your TV screen. I’m just going to go back to live view again. That’s it. That’s how
you can use Chromecast to watch security cameras live on your TV.
