The program is designed for the reception of video, sound and control devices that are running the "Camera-Nanny" ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.club_telegraph.babycam ), as well as to work with IP-cameras and video surveillance systems.
The program turns your mobile device into an audio / video receiver complete with functions for monitoring the baby and paired with the program "Camera-Nanny" allows you to:
- Shift the enlarged display area up/down/left/right (Viewfinder);
- Remotely turn on the backlight if it is dark;
- Listen to the sound from a microphone (or disconnect it);
- To set up the alarm threshold of the sound (the child began to cry);
- Select a ringtone for the alarm and turn on / off vibration;
- Use your device for other purposes until the program runs in the background tracking the sound level;
- Monitor the level of charge of the battery remote device.
That is, the wider range of functions than standard devices "Baby Monitor" and "Video Babysitter".
The program does not require an internet connection, does not require to disclose personal information, such as email, Google+ account and other social networks. And does not send any data to the Internet. Suffice only a local WiFi network and it is not necessary. If you're away from the communication means you can switch one of your mobile device in access point mode and connect it to a device running the program.
In the program there is no advertising, paid content, and so on.
Interface adapted to the target video babysitting.
The program allows you to zoom in (the ZOOM) and remove the visible zone relative to the center point of the camera (the viewfinder), that is not necessary that the child was in the center of the frame. Through programs can be increased without loss of quality (depending on the matrix of the mobile device camera) zones are about the edges of the frame.
The program does not require any configuration. You only need to enter the address of the device that is running the program "Camera-Nanny" or IP-cameras or video surveillance system address. The program recognizes the type of device.
Now a little about the history of the program.
This year I had a firstborn son. Immediately puzzled search for remote monitoring devices for child.The cheapest IP camera costs about $ 50. It was bought by D-Link DCS-930L. Result disgusting. Matrix Quality awful, in the twilight of some interference on the screen. Due to the poor quality is difficult to see the lost baby pacifier or not. The sound is hissing serious level.
Chambers sane qualities are already many times more expensive. Houses lying old phone HTC Desire 601. Experiments have shown very decent image at very low light, and it was decided to turn the phone into an IP camera. Software Search in the Play-store gave a small list of programs, none of which did not work for me. Or in connection with complex settings (and the system should use and wife), or due to high demands on network and phone and personal data disclosure requirements such as e-mail, an account Google+ and other social networks, as well as the broadcast audio and video with my phone through a foreign server, and is not known for what purpose then these data will be used by the authors of the program.
It was decided to write a program.
The cheapest smartphone on Android worth 30$., Which is cheaper very cheap IP-cameras with an order of magnitude more high-quality matrix, microphone and more opportunities.
With the growth of the child and the emergence of new needs of the program will be improved. ACCORDINGLY WILL GROW ITS PRICE. Bought FOR SOFTWARE UPGRADE NOW WILL BE FREE. Generally we grow together.
