Smart Phone IP Camera
« on: February 22, 2016, 12:01:24 pm »
Wondering if anyone is using any IP camera server apps to turn old cell phones into IP cameras? I found one service I really like that give you the ability to turn the flash on/off, and two-way talk.

Drawback is I don't think they have an API so that it could be tied into Vera..

Anyone know another ios and/or android app that would allow this?

I use IP webcam (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pas.webcam) on an old android phone and it's working fine. I also use it as a security cam on my Synology NAS. Integration with Vera also works.

Just wondering if anyone tried to utilize the sensors on old phones, or know a way to get that in to Vera? My old Xperia Z1 has pressure sensor, light sensor, and accelerometer which could be used for something..

How are you doing this. I have downloaded the app ad tried it and keep getting a very random response....

have tried http://192.168.1.23:8080/video as the URL but its very random whether it connects or not.
