I was just hunting around for a remote web cam so I could watch my mano and temp gauges while I was out on the bread route. I stumbled upon a cheap and easy way to manage doing this with an android phone I'm not currently using. On my old phone I downloaded an app called IP webcam. Heres the YouTube video instructionshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWms-VcRd74
I have a wireless router at home that my old phone is sending the video stream to. Then I simply put the IP address in my browser on my computer and cell phone. Now I can see anything in the view of the old phone camera, anywhere I have internet service on a computer or cell phone. Simple, easy and cheap. It cost nothing since Im using stuff I already have.
Below is a screen shot of my current cell phone that I'm retrieving the live video feed on via the internet
That's my living room.. I'll mount the old phone in the basement in front of my temp and manometer panel
