It's now possible to use the K-Guard systems on an Android device!Remember, to do this, you'll first need to set up Port Forwarding on your router - The K-Guard DVRs all use ports 80, 9000 and 18004 - Please see this link for further details.
This does involve a Firmware update to the DVR and an app to be installed onto the item, however if you follow the steps below, this is quite a simple process.
Firstly, download the latest firmware for your device - Please note that these ARE device specific and that loading the incorrect firmware could render your device unusable.
For the 4 channel version (N29HU, N67HU or N81JB) the firmware can be downloaded from the link below:http://www.maplin.co.uk/media/Zip/KGuard4ChAndroidUpdate.zip

For the 16 channel version (N96HY) the firmware can be downloaded from the link below:http://www.maplin.co.uk/media/Zip/KGuard16ChAndroidUpdate.zip
When this has been downloaded, copy the "dvrupdate" folder to a USB stick and insert this into the USB socket on the rear of DVR.
From the main menu, select "System", followed by "Maintain" and then "System Update".
THE FIRMWARE UPDATE WILL NOW BE INSTALLED - DO NOT TURN OFF THE DVR WHILE THIS IS BEING INSTALLED.
After the update has installed, please download the App bundle from the link below:http://www.maplin.co.uk/media/Zip/KGuardMobileViewingApps.zip
