iPCamera - High-End Network Camera
By Dominik Seibold
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
iPCamera lets you use your iOS device as a wireless network camera! As live monitor you can use every web browser!
With iPCamera you can use any iOS device as ip network camera. The app creates a web server which you can connect to with every web browser on a computer on the same local network as the iOS device. The network address which you enter in your web browser on your computer is displayed on the bottom of the screen. After you connected to the web server you see in your web browser a live view of the camera and a control interface to alter camera parameters, i.e. torch-control, resolution, frame-rate, quality, camera-selection, orientation, mirroring, etc.
iPCamera delivers market-leading ultra low-delay, super fluid and crystal clear video.
Possible applications of this app are surveillance applications or using your iOS device as a FPV device (first person view) for robots or rc cars.
You can protect the access to the app by http-authentication. The username and password for this can be set up in the app-preferences (in the settings-app).
What's New in Version 1.1
-iOS 7 support
-password protection (HTTP authentication)
-now also works from cellular network (if your provider supports incoming connections)
-device doesn't fall asleep while app is running
Great-a couple flaws though
Does what it says-type the address into your browser, and voila, turn your iPhone, iPod touch (4 or newer), or iPad into a high quality, high-frame rate, low-lag hi-resolution security camera. If you have a screen-recording program on your computer or i-device, you can even record the screen for later viewing. A couple things to mention though-it eats batteries like crazy (I understand this is to be expected, given your device is taking video, transmitting it real-time, all while the screen is on. Use it plugged into a charger if possible) and the newest version supposedly supports video over data networks, as opposed to the previous WiFi only, but I can't get it to work. I mainly use it when Im working at my desk with headphones on, pointed either at the door or directly behind me so I dont get startled if someone comes in behind me. Highly recommended app!
