Cam Viewer for SecuritySpy
By Furnishing Industry Software House
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Cam Viewer for SecuritySpy is a camera viewer that allows you to monitor security cameras configured using Ben Bird's SecuritySpy software directly from your iPhone.
Cam Viewer for SecuritySpy allows you to view an unlimited number of cameras from multiple SecuritySpy servers in a thumbnail arrangement, or zoom into individual cameras for a near real-time feed.
Configuring cameras is easy - just enter the details of a SecuritySpy server and Cam Viewer will retrieve all your configured cameras and add them into the application with no fuss.
Re-order or delete cameras to configure Cam Viewer to display the cameras however you prefer - even mixing cameras from different servers on the same thumbnail page.
You can control the refresh rate of your cameras, and view your cameras in landscape or portrait mode depending on the orientation of your iPhone.
You can even take a snapshot of the currently viewed camera and save it to your iPhone or iPod Photo Roll - perfect for surveillance activities where you want to keep a copy of an image for future reference.
*** PLEASE NOTE ***
You MUST have purchased and configured a SecuritySpy server on your Mac in order to use this software.
Cam Viewer for SecuritySpy requires you to specify the URL, port, username and password of your SecuritySpy server. You will need to have configured SecuritySpy's WebServer option to allow access to your camera images using the username and password configured in Cam Viewer for SecuritySpy.
This software WILL NOT WORK with any other type of camera security system.
Users looking to monitor other image sources should consider Cam Viewer which allows you to monitor IP security cameras, traffic cams, weather radars or any other internet image sources.

What's New in Version 1.5
Cam Viewer for SecuritySyp
This is an excellent iOS app to obtain mobil access to the very robust security camera application for Mac OS, Security Spy.
Cam Viewer, when using the latest version, offers very good support on iOS 5 devices. The negative reviews should be disregarded as they stem from frustrated users who attempted to use pre-version 1.5 iterations of the app on iOS 5. Cam Viewer works well on my iPad 2 and iPhone 4s. Reduced bandwidth on some limited ATT wireless connections does degrade the utility of this app as with any other app. With Wi-Fi and good wireless phone connections, the app facilitates clear and useful viewing of multiple security cameras where ever you are. Cam Viewer does NOT function without Security Spy on your Macintosh at your security camera installation.
Works for me
Been a long time user of this app and only ever had issue recently when the app began to crash 100% of the time on iOS 5. I deleted app from phone and reinstalled, that solved my issues then v. 1.5 came out. So far no issues with the new version.
The app works as well as one would expect from a handheld device and is a beautiful compliment to the Security Spy computer software. I do not have and pan/tilt cameras do I can not speak on the apps functionality with those; however, I can easily monitor my business and building from almost any location using my iPhone.
I have never had a need to contact the developer so I can not confirm or negate other reviewers "no response" claims when confronted with problems.
out of date app
This app either needs to be updated or removed from the App Store. It somewhat works with iOS 9 and an iPhone 5S, but has issues because it has not been updated since iOS 5. Among the issues I discovered in less than 5 minutes of use are (1) the Demonstration Camera does not work, (2) the app crashes frequently and the crashes are reproducible, (3) any changes you make are lost when restarting the app, (4) the left and right edges of the camera video are severely truncated when the iPhone is in portrait view and (5) the camera video is squashed with black space on the left and right sides when the phone is in landscape view.
