The IP Pro is a very useful application if you have a CCTV or IP Camera. This application can remotely view the live video feeds of your surveillance system as long as it is connected to the internet.
With this app, you can also control your camera using its function called PTZ or Pan, Tilt, and Zoom options. This is important if you want to adjust the viewing angle of your camera without touching it physically.
Another good feature of this software is the capability to detect motion which is also very important for creating burglar alarms. If the IP Pro detects it, you will get a notification immediately.
The IP Pro app is available both on the Android Play Store and Apple AppStore. If you are planning on using the IP Pro for Windows or Mac, the only way to achieve this is by running an Android operating system on your computer.
This can be done by installing an android emulator program. The emulator program creates a virtualized environment of an android operating system. Emulators are also widely used around the world. Now, if you want to continue using this method, please check the minimum requirements of this program.
PC Requirements Of An Emulator Program
Since you are going to use an emulator to run the IP Pro, you have to make sure that the specs of your laptop or computer is good enough for running it.
You can check the system requirements below:
- First is the processor of the computer. This needs to have at least a minimum of 1 GHz speed.
- Second, you have to check the memory or RAM of your laptop/computer. According to the emulator programs, they require at least 2 GB RAM size or better installed on your PC.
- Now, we will also advise you to check the hard disk drive space before you download and install both of these programs. Have at least 10 GB so that you can install it without any storage problems.
- Emulator programs also require you to have some drivers correctly installed. This includes the graphical processing unit’s driver. Installing or updating it, will also install the DirectX and OpenGL which is a major requirement according to the website of emulators.
- Also, consider installing both the .Net Framework and Visual C++ Redistributable. There are emulator programs that require it before you run the program into your computer.
- Lastly, you might want to turn on the virtualization technology because it can increase the performance exponentially. Although it is not required, it is recommended to turn it on.
The next process is the installation of an Android emulator program.
