EyeLook is netcam viewer application, which turns your smartphone or tablet into an IP camera surveillance JPEG monitor for your home or office cameras.
"An Internet protocol camera, or IP camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which, unlike analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet."
Now you don't have to worry about leaving your pets or child at home, you can open the EyeLook app and see what is happening in front of your IP camera.
You can choose a one cam or four cameras layout, depending on your needs. Each of the 4 cameras can be expanded so that you can see it better.
Currently the app only supports JPEG source to connect to most IP cameras. Configuration instructions can be found on the following link:
IP: (your router's WAN IP address).
Port: (your camera's port number)
User: The USERNAME for your IP camera
Password: The PASSWORD for your IP camera
Cam Model: You can use one of the predefined camera makes selected or, if you select --Custom link-- a new field will appear where you have to type in only the link after your camera's IP and Port Number, for example if the link to the camera's image is http://(IP ADDRESS):(PORT NUMBER)/image.jpg, you only have to type in the "image.jpg" part, the same goes if the link to the camera's image is http://(IP ADDRESS):(PORT NUMBER)/imagep/picture.jpg, you only have to type in the "imagep/picture.jpg" part.
Screen stays on: The screen of the device never dims or turns off, while the app is running.
Low bandwidth mode: If you are using mobile network for your internet connection you may want to set that mode to ON. This way the video will seem to lag, but in reality it will load images after withing a specified interval of time, thus lowering your internet usage. If you intend to view your IP camera via a mobile internet connection, I recommend that you also lower the quality settings of the camera. This does not apply to Wi-Fi network usage.
Camera number: If you have a single camera you might want to set this option to one, since it will show one large camera view, instead of four, which will even lower the app's processing needs, increasing your device's battery life while using the app.
Static is black color: If the static effect on the idle cameras bothers you you can set it to on, which will show only a black screen with a camera icon.
