Remote job monitoring

i currently use a camera to view my x-carve during cuts to watch progress and watch for cut errors (disasters) but was wondering if there is anyway to monitor the time left on a cut remotely as well without having to have a second camera pointed at my laptop screen which it is running from

i know i could use some type of VPN/remote access like teamviewer so i could see my desktop remotely and even pause a job if i see an issue, but was looking for something that wouldn’t take up so much bandwidth just to see the time left on a job

How far away your CNC is your monitoring location?

Word of caution:

not far away, i monitor my machine via a camera that i can view on my phone at all times no matter where i am at

thankfully, i have not had any crazy mishaps like that guy showed
