iPhone video surveilance, what DVR cameras to buy
Can anyone tell me what is the best combination of software and hardware to be able to use an iPhone 3G to monitor a security system?
My friend has an ELK security system made up of motion sensors and door and window opening sensors, accessible only by PC, and a DVR system with 4 h264 cameras also only accessible by PC
how can this be intergrated into a system controllable from an iPhone
what other equipment could be used that would fulfill the same primary functions
1. iphone can monitor the 4 cameras
2. iphone receives email/text message when a motion sensor, or opend door/window sensor is triggered
3. an image at the time of the zone violation is emailed/text messaged
4. iphone can review the video of the events at the time the zone was triggered, to determine if there is an intruder or a false alarm
it would also be nice to be able to pan, tilt, and zoom
I see so many apps that claim to do some of the things above, but none seem to work with my current systems..
Any suggestions on what equipment makes up a complete iPhone and Macintosh compatible system would be very much appreciated
I tried Virtual PC, and it is really unsatisfying, but worse is having no iPhone access
thanks for any suggestions
I attach links to a number of iPhone video camera products that I have been trying to understand
the first one linked below, GV-iView, I have installed on my iphone and I would like to know if anyone reading this, can help me follow the instructions to get the system configured and working:

also, here are some other products that I have not been able to understand the technical requirements to be compatible with my current ELK and camera system..
