Unlike other solutions, In.Sight does not require that you configure your network using port forwarding. Accordingly, there is no risk from leaving ports open on the network. Instead In.Sight uses a secure peer to peer networking solution which provides a secure, encrypted connection each time your camera is viewed from a remote location. To learn more about the secure connectivity provided with In.Sight, visit http://www.yoics.com . This is a Philips partner that enables highly secure and reliable internet connections.
This method of networking works with most standard router settings, provided they are set to allow for UDP (User Datagram Protocol) which is the standard method used for most chat applications (such as Skype, Yahoo messengers, MSN, messenger, etc.). The method is also typically compatible with most anti-virus and internet security programs. An on-line test diagnostic is also available if you are interested in determining if your network is compatible with these modern internet applications: http://www.yoics.com/yp_diags.php
