In Japanese folklore, the Hyakume (百目 - "Hundred Eyes") was a supernatural creature covered with a multitude of large, unblinking eyes.
It often took shelter in old abandoned buildings, protecting them from potentaial thieves and vandals.
Use the Hyakume app to easily & securely view & record IP Camera video on your phone or tablet.
Hyakume supports a wide range of IP cameras (security, doorbell, surveillance, baby/pet montor, webcam, traffic, weather, etc.).
You can store up to one-hundred Camera objects organised into separate Camera Lists.
Add a new Camera by providing the IPv4 address, port number, video stream path & video format.
Alternatively, use the available ONVIF discovery tool to find new IP cameras on the local network/subnet.
Once a Camera is added or updated, it will begin polling, generating a polling timestamp and thumbnail image if active.
Tap an active Camera to open its live video stream.
While viewing, you can record video segments, capture snapshot images & expand the view to full-screen.
Recorded video & saved snapshot images can be reviewed in-app & are available for sharing & archiving.
Hyakume can also be used as a dedicated Relay Server, allowing secure remote access to local IP cameras from Hyakume client devices and desktop/mobile web browsers (spare Android device required).
Pets tearing up your kitchen while you're out? Watch them from the comfort of your office/commute and catch them in the act.
Record their crimes on your phone/tablet and confront them with the evidence!
To setup your device as a Relay Server, install Hyakume & note the IPv4 address (About Hyakume).
In Settings, enable the Relay Server & choose a userid, password & listener port.
Enable the optional Web Client module to allow secure remote web browser access.
Port-forward the IPv4 address & listener port on your gateway/router so it is reachable from the Internet.
Add the desired IP sameras to the DEFAULT Camera List & start the Relay Server.
On Hyakume devices, add the Relay Server using its external IPv4 address, listener port, userid & password.
On remote web browsers, connect to "https:///webclient" & provide the userid & password after the secure TLS connection is established.
NOTE: Remote connections from authorized devices & browsers are secured by strong TLS encryption & userid/password authentication.
