Any way to show multiple Foscam streams on a single view
« on: September 13, 2012, 02:15:48 am »
This app seems very usefull with a lot of setup and planning. I am trying to create a security panel that shows all my Foscam cameras on a single view instead of having to click the camer button to view each camera separately. I am able to do this automator, any way I can do this with SQ Temote HD?

Also does anyone have any screen shoots or even better YouTube videos of there setup?

Hi Chris - I think SQ remote is very powerful once you start making your own design -
How do you have your camera view setup within SQ remote HD  ? Can your share your camera URL synthax to see camera in/outside the home ?

I tried to use a web view but the only option is to take up the entire control panel. This stops me from being able to put 4 cameras on a single security panel.

Also the refresh rate on the camera is horrible, it's not usable for actually monitoring. Please update this part of the app, I want to like it but the difficulty of setup and lack of support for streaming video is making it useless.

I've seen some that look pretty nice and that's why I bought it but you have to be a designer to fit your setup. Can someone post screen shots of their sit-ups to show how it can be setup?

Probably have to create a webpage yourself and serve it on a local webserver to display all your feeds then direct sq remote to that local webpage.  You can overlay buttons on the webview for additional functionality also.

I like the idea and look of this app but getting it to work is a full time job. The developer should consider some more plug and play options like Automator.app and Homewave.

If I have to create a web page and host it than this is a fail. I will keep looking for future updates and hope this app gets better.

I tried big517 solution, I hosted a web page on my local webserver refreshing the image every 2 seconds, however the image does not refresh in SQ remote although it does in Safari. This seems not very helpfull either.
