AirBeam turns your iDevices into a realtime audio and video surveillance system. AirBeam streams live video and audio from the cameras and microphones of iPhones, iPods, iPads. You can watch the stream on any other iDevice, Mac, Web browser or AppleTV - even on multiple screens simultaneously.
Use your iDevices as luxury babyphones, for serious surveillance, to keep an eye on your pets, a FPV cam in your remote controlled toys…there are hundreds of useful and not so useful things you can do with it. Even if you have just a single device AirBeam is an awesome tool for motion controlled video recording.

Ratings and Reviews
Feature rich, excellent!
They've thought of everything
Stops working after a couple days.
I would not use this as a home security camera replacement to repurpose an old iphone "it is not reliable."
It works ok for small projects.
Waste of money
Most of the features do not work. I emailed them 2 days ago with a list of things not working and have heard nothing. I'm going to see if I can get refund from Apple for this worthless app. Would give 0 stars if I could.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
