If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.Or do the early morning thing with a great breakfast and plenty of free coffee at Eat at Joe’s surf diner.The big downside to Jumi Cam in my opinion is that the i Pad app just displays the i Phone app window.
I didn’t test the whole 3G/4G remote viewing capabilities because that doesn’t seem like it would work well in any app and I didn’t need that feature.The first app that I found when doing a generic search was i Cam for .99.Overall, the process was easy to setup, but I was not happy with the quality of the video.For some reason, the video was very choppy and also pixelated.I still recommend this app because it’s very highly rated and it could have just been some issue with my setup.
Air Cam was probably my favorite out of all the three apps.
The program has a slider bar that lets you move it from Better Frame Rate to Better Image Quality, but neither one worked too well.
When I moved it to better frame rate, the video was delayed by several seconds and was very grainy.
If you want, you can also remotely access it, but that requires extra configuration of your router, etc, which I didn’t do.
If you click on Options, you can enable night vision, configure remote access, setup the listening port, setup recording, motion detection, email notifications and more.
The program has quite a few options, including the ability to choose your resolution, which really made a big difference. It’s a little unpolished in the sense that when you start viewing a video stream, there is no way to go back to the main menu!
