Hey guys, I was registered here a long while ago but i lost my username and password so I have registered again.

I do need some advice on something though.

Last night I had an intruder that tried to get into my house. I live in an apartment type flat. I dont see my landlord very ofter but there are outdoor secutity cameras around the apartment and when I moved in the previous tennant said this apartment has contol over the cameras but she never bothered and neither have we.

Since last night I have been wondering about the cameras. They would have helped ALOT as the guy who tried to break in last night was on the deck and there is a camera right there. The cameras would be very handy if there are any other incidents.

Today I went outside and had a look at them. The wires dissapear through the wall and they look like the go to the roof or something.

Dies anyone know if theres any way i could access these cameras?

I take it you can't view single cameras or a matrix of cameras through your Television? My guess is you'd have to use a web based portal to access them, or use specific software to access the DVR's (such as March DVR or Investigator), both options which would require you to talk to your landlord. They could be older VHS based systems in which case you'd have to see your landlord anyway for physical access.

What do you mean by control? I take it they aren't PTZ's (Pan Tilt Zooms) so I'm assuming it either means you can view them live (usually through a tuned in TV) or you can access Live/Historic through a computer based system, highly likely the first option though as DVR based system's with networking of any quality are not cheap.
