Turn Your Old Phones Into Security Camera's
« on: December 20, 2015, 04:10:37 pm »
Making an IP Security System
This guide will teach you how to a cost effective android security camera; a great way to utilize your phone that is still sitting in some drawer

Minimum requirements
800mhz processor
256 MB ram
Android 2.3

Pre Setup
make sure your android phone has a static IP adress, using DHCP will cause problems because your IP will constantly change, therefore make it Static to ensure the same address.

1. Download the IP Webcam App on the Playstore
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pas.webcam&hl=en

2. Set Up the App and Customize
This app can detect motion, if it does it will record the video; it will automatically stop once no motion is detected
look at the Motion Detection and Others PNG

3. Security
If you plan to use your phones publicly then its a good idea to put password and username .
Also if you are using more than one device, give each device a different port, this is the only way to differentiate them when you use them on a public network
refer to the Local Broadcasting PNG

4. Local and Public Viewing
To view the device while the server has been turned on, go to your browser and type the device's local or private IP and end it with a collen with the port number
For example
Camera 1: 192.168.1.110:8080
Camera 2: 192.168.1.111:8181
For public viewing: use your public IP followed by the port number (this is why you need multiple ports if you have multiple camera's)
look at the port forwarding PNG: use this as a guide to set up your router
to test your port forwarding success go on a 3G/4G LTE Network to access the camera
For example
1st Camera
100.10.120.130:8080
2nd Camera
100.10.120.130:8181
When you go to this public address you should get a image similar to the one show in the Login PNG

Other Viewing Methods
You can use apps on both iTunes and Android to view these cameras on your phone simulatneously
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rcreations.ipcamviewer&hl=en
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ip-cam-viewer-lite/id397322405?mt=8
when choosing brand put Android
and put the name of the app as model
