This cool little app does a single job! Allows you to control a foscam pan & tilt WIFI & Ethernet camera from your iPhone or iPod touch.
Check up on your house, office, or babysitter from anywhere in the world via your phone.
HOW TO USE:
The app is so simple to use, just go into the settings to configure it for your ip camera. To pan and tilt the camera press and hold the arrows until the camera responds; release when you want the camera to stop moving.
Depending on your connection speed you have to press and hold the arrows until the camera tilts. If your connection is fast the camera will be responsive, otherwise give it few seconds to kick in when you press it.
This app was tested with FI8908W but other foscam ip cameras should also work.
Right now only one camera is supported but if people request support for multiple cameras I'll add it.
App runs well
The developer states if people ask for multiple cams it will be added. So please add multiple cams and the ability to quickly switch to them. Would also like to see ability to move the iPhone horizontally that displays the full image. I have been running app for some time now and works well. Note for other users make sure you close the app and don't just put the phone into lock as the app still runs in the background.
Finally found an app that works
I bought an foscam oem ip camera from eBay and I have been searching for an app for my iphone and this one works straight away not messing around with settings. Great work and hope to see more features in the future.
Ok but basic
This app is good enough for a free app but if you're paying money there's much better value with the other foscam app (foscam surveillance). I'm disappointed that after months of use I'm yet to see an update for this app - seems like with so much potential the developer has either reached his/her limits or settled for a cash cow app. Features missing, to name a few:
- full screen view
- multiple cameras
- image adjustment options
- screenshot ability
- fps adjustment
- ability to see if camera is mounted upside-down or not and adjust controls accordingly
Hopefully the developer comes out of hibernation mode soon and gives us a few of those features and more!
