Re: [MBZ] OT web cam and cheap tablet

I found a refurb Belkin Netcam on Amazon for cheepcheep, arrived this 
morning, took about 3min to set it up, works great.  You can set motion 
sensing at various levels, sends an email when it detects some motion.  
Can view on various devices.  Easy and cheap solution.


I guess I will abandon the old one, or find the setup software and see 
if i can see it on a winders box.

 Now I am wondering if I could use a cheap tablet as a monitor for 
it, somehow.  I have an old Android phone and an old ifone too, there 
is a VLC app for the phones and ipad, so I am wondering if that might 
work somehow.  If I could get it working then I could buy one of those 
$50 tablets and have a continuous monitor.  THere might be some other 
apps too, I have not looked into it.


I have an application called TinyCam (Android) that does this, no idea 
whether it will support your camera.  I have also heard of IP Cam and 
Quick Cam (I think).  There are another hundred of these apps in the 
store, many of them hardware specific, if the generic ones don't 
work.  I assume the Apple store is similarly blessed with options.


I would not bother with VLC for this use, at least on Android.  I 
expect one of the aforementioned apps will work more conveniently.


Best,
Tim

Re: [MBZ] OT web cam and cheap tablet

2015-07-13 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
The Linksys 932 and 933 wireless models work well for this sort of thing and 
are close in price. Linksys has a nice application that lets you view multiple 
cameras on the same screen, too.

I have three of these around the exterior of the house, and I'm pleased with 
them. I'm surprised at the IR visibility, as it's pretty good considering the 
distances involved and the light levels.

The one on my lanai is inside the screen, so it won't see beyond the screen 
with the IR. That being said, the motion detection part can see past the 
screen, and it appears to trigger when wildlife goes by, but I can't see it.

None of mine are rated for outdoor use, but I have them mounted in protected 
areas (under eaves) that are exposed to the elements. No problems for a year 
now.

Great work, guys.

So here is my scenario.  Doorbell rings.  I want to look at know who's at
the front door from an upstairs office in the rear corner of the house.
How do I access the video feed?  Can I do it on my computer or smart phone
or both?  How about a walkie-talkie set up so I can speak from upstairs to
whoever is ringing the bell, without bothering to go downstairs?
