U-verse TV is delivered through Internet Protocol Television (IPTV). Whether or not that's just AT&T's brand name for IP addressing or it's different, I don't know.

Look at the software that came with the security system. If it has that capability it should explain how to set it up. If the security system isn't designed for remote monitoring it would take huge engineering changes to make it happen.
