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! You can use every web browser as live monitor!
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 1.3
-Orientation-data in the http-headers for VR-applications
-Bugfix: Access to /photo works now properly
-Compatibility to iOS 6
Giving this a One Star...
...Until I can figure out how to get it to work. It sounded like I could just download this, then use it at home and enter the web address into my home computer. The image looks great on the phone, but I couldn't get it to open on any browser on any 3 of my desktop computers. I gave the app its own root, but it still didn't work. I was hoping for an app that would work even for someone who's not very computer-savy, and this isn't it.
Works on iPad2, Crashes on iPhone 3GS
The app works as advertised on an iPad2. However, it crashes on an iPhone3GS. Unable to change resolution, etc. Also unable to view video via web browser. Any attempt results in a crash. Can change username, etc in Settings app.
Amazing how well it works. Currently have it set up with a few of my old iPhone for security camera. Works with Synology Surveillance Station and records with no lag. Was going to buy some Foscam fi9821, but this apps beats the $100 per Foscam.
