Can I use my existing TV? 


  • Yes, as long as it has an HDMI input

Do I have to use the Apple Remote?

  • Yes. You can set SideLine/PoolSide Live to be viewed in Portrait or Landscape mode. 


Do I need internet access to make the system to run? 


  • No, but your Apple TV does need to be connected to the internet to get updates.


Do you sell a Startup Kit?

    It is in the Basic Settings of each camera. This allows you to have different delays for different cameras. You can get to the Basic Settings for each camera two different ways. Long press on a camera from the main grid and choose Basic Settings or while watching a camera stream press the Menu button then choose Basic Settings.
