IS THE ULTIMATE IP CAMERA APP?
IP CAMERAS CAN be bought quite cheaply, but still can’t compete the price of IP Webcam — free. Sure, you do need a spare or old Android phone to run it on, but even buying a (cheap) brand new model is still very affordable. More importantly, using an app and phone gives a much higher quality and powerful IP webcam. The tradeoff is ease of use, as the app is a bit more hands-on to get up and running. The resolution is limited by your phone’s camera, but 1080p+ is typical, and the app can handle motion detection and send alerts. You can also record to the device, a NAS or even cloud storage such as Dropbox. The app even enables two way audio and can integrate into other services, such as Tasker.
Of course, there is no IR night vision mode, but you can remotely activate the phone’s torch. Thanks to the inbuilt battery, your webcam also keeps working through any power cuts. The app also has features geared towards baby and pet monitoring.
