About this app

Transforms your Android device in a wireless IP camera.

This is a smart way to reuse your old smartphones or tablet, giving them a new chance while allowing you to save money.

It works with both the WiFi and the mobile data connection and can stream video from any cameras together with the audio.

It supports standard streaming formats (H264, MJPEG, AAC) and protocols (HTTP, RTSP, RTMP). This way, it can be connected to a variety of clients such as software, VCR, NAS and online services.

Integrates the support for angelcam and Mangocam cloud services, that simplify the network configuration and allow to share your experience over the web.

Supports live streaming to YouTube Live.

Implements a motion-detection algorithm, to detect relevant changes in the image, that can be easily integrated with home-automation systems. This allows to easily setup a reliable alarm system.

Can automatically optimize the image settings to improve the image quality in low light conditions.

The ONVIF support makes the integration easier with most of the leading NVR software.

It supports many different types of connections, including WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth tethering (client or host), USB tethering (host), WiFi tethering (host), WiFi Direct, VPN (OpenVPN and native), mobile (push only).

I have nothing bad to say about the software. Whenever I had the correct configuration it worked perfect. The only bad thing and it's probably not the apps fault, is that it gets the phone pretty hot and if it's on a charger will shut down charging and then it will die and then it doesn't work. I'm sure if I set the settings to lower resolution lower framework and such it would be less heat but to test out blue iris this worked perfect and I recommend this camera software for that purpose.

Grazie. Hai provato a disabilitare la funzione 'schermo sempre attivo'? Gran parte del calore e consumo energetico è dovuto allo schermo. La telecamera purtroppo consuma anch'essa parecchio e questo dipende anche dal dispositivo.

Very easy to set up, and runs well even on an old unused phone (which makes it easy to recycle old phones). But could you please add a toggle to enable us to run without the flash being turned on when motion detection is triggered? (I use the phone outside my door, as a doorbell camera, so it's behind glass to protect it from the elements. When the flash turns on, all I see is a glaring white screen [the flash reflection], until the flash turns off.) Very fast response from the developer. Thank you - changing the link works.

Thank you! Regarding the flash, just change the motion URLs to do whatever you need. You can see torch=on, torch=off and alarm=play. Delete the URLs or change in torch=off and alarm=none to disable those functions. If you have domotic devices, you may want to interface them by using the capability to call http and https URLs.

How could this not be 5 stars? Currently using this with three old cell phones and it works beautifully. All are interfaced with a zoneminder linux server running on a 15 year old PC and no problems at all. Does everything you need it to and you don't have to worry about 3rd party spying or your data going through a cloud service that you have no control over. I would gladly pay for this as there are no ads and no annoying subscription service. Its perfection is in its simplicity.
