 I'm interested in purchasing a 16 Channel Ultimate Mini Series D1 Realtime Security DV, Product# DVR-LT16480MHD with various dome/bullet cams for my home. I understand the DVR is capable of sending snapshots from motion alerts via email but I was wondering if there is a way to also have them sent through SMS text messages to a Verizon cell phone. I live in Florida a couple hours north of your location and my ISP is Brighthouse Networks.  Are you aware of any issues with this company for Remote Monitoring, port forwarding, ECT. ? I'm using there provided router but I'm willing to buy my own if needed be. Remote viewing and email/text notifications are a must for me. 
I'm looking at these cameras for inside and outmy house do you have any recommendations on them. Dome vs bullet? Quality? 
2,000sqft home single story. 
Product# OD-CM600IR100L2812-B
Product# OD-LX700IR50-W
Product# OD-LX700IR100L2812-W

Product# OB-LX700IR100L2812-W
(Hidden Camera)
Product# CV-LXPIR
Thanks, James

One of our tech guys can comment on here to let you know if they have heard of any specific issues with verizon or Brighthouse, however, I do know that with our DVR's you are capable of receiving the snapshots to your phone in multiple ways. If you are able to receive email on your phone, you will definitely be able to do it. Although, if you have an older phone, I have seen that some cell phone companies give you an email address that includes your phone number and any email that gets sent to it is received by your phone as a text message.

Also, the iphone and android app that we have allows you to set up notifications so that if there is motion detection set off on one of your channels, it will notify you on your phone and you can immediately open up the live view by clicking on the notification and watch that channel live right on your smartphone.

As for your service provider, you can check if they block port 80 or not. Most service providers will give you the ability to view your DVR remotely and even if they don't there are ways around it but they wont be as easy as opening up our remote viewing apps and accessing your DVR. They get a little more technical but it's definitely doable.

We operate from 9am-6pm mon-fri so I'm sure one of our techs can chime in when they get a chance and see this message during the week.

For texting, just email to your phone number followed by @vtext.com . Then you will receive it as a text, but you really should use our push notification in our smart phone application TechproSS which is even faster and has more flexibility. You can turn on Push Notification for each camera independently right from your phone. I can let one of our technicians respond about Brighthouse. I am not familiar with them myself.

For inexpensive indoor cameras that are only used for overviews, I would recommend OD-LX700IR50 for overviews. I would use the OD-LX700IR100L2812-W for a tighter view of areas like entrances. For the outdoors whenever possible I recommend the bullet which is the most weatherproof OB-LX700IR100L2812-W.

I don't think you will have an issue with bright house router. I will assumed that as long as you have access to the settings of the router (Port Forwarding, etc) we can figure this out if this will be an issue once we can login to a computer in that network. Another important key is to figure out the username and password of your router so we can access it and configure the ports that needed to be open in order to access the DVR from outside the network.
