iDMSS Lite & Plus is one of the best applications currently available on the Google Play Store when it comes to controlling all of your remote cameras, doors and alarms from one place.
This guide will walk you through how to download and install the iDMSS Lite app on a computer using BlueStacks. BlueStacks is one of the best Android emulation software for computers right now, and it actually runs Android applications a lot faster than your average smartphone. The developers claim that BlueStacks processes information six times faster than the famous Samsung Galaxy S9 +.
Download and install the iDMSS app for PC (Windows 7, 8, 10 or Mac)
First of all, we need to have BlueStacks installed. If you haven’t set it up already, you can download it from this link: https://www.bluestacks.com/
We are not going to explain how to install BlueStacks as that is not the purpose of this tutorial but the installation process is very simple. Just run the installer and follow the steps.
Once we have BlueStacks installed and opened, we need to click on the Google Play Store which is the main application used to download other applications.
The first thing we see when we open the Google Play Store is a screen asking us to either enter our information to sign in or create a new account with the information we provided. In any case, we need to be signed into a Google Play Store account. So if you already have an account with another Google service like Gmail or Youtube, you can use that one. If not, create one right now. The good thing is that once it’s created, it’s activated and ready to go so we don’t have to wait for a sort confirmation or anything like that.
After we’re signed in, you should see some of the most popular apps and a search bar at the top. We will use this search bar to find our desired application. In this case you have to write “iDMSS Lite” without quotation marks. As soon as you start the search, you will be redirected to the application. However, this has a slight difference in name and it says “gDMSS Lite” but don’t worry, this is what we are looking for.
The next step is to click on the green sign with the white letters “Install” and wait for the application to download and install. We can see that this application has over 10 million downloads and has a very positive rating of 4.1 out of 5. So we are sure that this is an application worth using. Now the speed of the download process is completely dependent on your internet speed and it may only take a few seconds or even more than a few minutes if your connection is very slow. Having a wired connection available is always better than using Wi-Fi. In fact, using cable usually at least doubles the speed.
We also need some space for the application to store all the data and the like. To be more specific, there should be at least 30MB available on your computer as the application will need 22.80MB initially but it may grow as we use it. We just wait for the green bar to be met, and once the “Install” message is complete, an “Open” sign will appear on which “Install” was previously placed.
We can now open it and finally we can see our iDMSS Lite app run. The first thing we will see when it is open is if we allow iDMSS Lite to write to our files and find our location, we must accept this in order for the application to run properly and not cause any problems.
Conclusion and opinion
Finally we come to the interesting part, now we see 3 different categories: camera, door and alarm. When we click on the camera, we get a message that the plus version is now freely available. So if you’d like to try them out, you can hit Open on the Google Play Store, but we don’t need that right now anyway.
Now we see 4 different boxes with a plus sign in the middle. These 4 boxes are the areas dedicated to our cameras, up to 4 cameras at the same time. If we want to install a camera, we click on the plus sign. Below we click on the “Add Device” sign and we will be asked to initialize our device to work. We do that and now we can see different types of devices based on the way they are connected to us. It can be a WiFi device, a wired device, a cloud device, or an online search device.
For example, if we want to set up one of our cameras, we click again on the add device and we can now introduce the login of our camera connected to our network by filling in the “Username” and “Password” fields with our camera information. We can also select in the fields “Live Preview” and “Playback” whether we want “Main” or “Extra”. Once we do this we should finally see our camera in near real time!
In addition, we offer a number of interesting functions on the camera screen, e.g. B. the ability to record audio if our camera supports audio recording and taking screenshots or making videos.
This application is certainly one of the most interesting when it comes to the safety of our homes and our lives. It comes with a variety of useful tools and is simple and very easy to use. iDMSS Lite is one of the most popular applications for monitoring, and you can quickly see why there are so many positive reviews. We strongly recommend using the IDMSS Lite app as it is, if not the best, one of the best apps for our purpose.
