Add IP Camera Viewer on Roku to View Security Cameras

What if you don’t have to do the hassle for taking a glance at the camera footage on your Roku TV?

Well, this is possible, if you have the security cameras except this one (blink camera), and an app named IP Camera View installed on your Roku device. This app is included on the channel store that you can download right away, 

But, you must know that the IP camera viewer app comes in two versions (Basic and Pro), the basic app (free) can only open up footage of a single camera at a time, while the next one (paid) can do so from 2 to 4 cameras simultaneously.

With being I said, decide whether you want to use the free or premium app and follow the required procedures here:

1. On your Roku TV screen, go to the channel store and install the IP Camera Viewer Pro or Basic App. (Navigate Streaming Channels » Search Channels options)
