Are you someone that is always on the move? Don’t have anyone to house sit while you are away? Want to keep an eye on your place or kid at home while you are away? IP Cam Viewer is a cool app that we found which can be used to access any camera(s) that you may have already installed at home or to even access the webcam on your laptop on your mobile device. With IP Cam Viewer you can remotely view and control your IP Camera, DVR, and Network Video Recorder using Android. It also includes a database of public web cams around the world like traffic cameras. The app has an upgrade for 2-way audio support on some cameras for use as baby monitor. It also has an upgrade for Record Mode which turns any spare Android device into a solid state, battery backed network recorder for standalone IP cameras. It also allows playback, search and the ability to export videos.
This is a very nifty tool that can be used on an Android, Apple or Blackberry smartphone. You have different views (grid, gallery, zoom) which comes in handy if you have multiple cameras and you can even include a widget on the home screen. Want to share your feed with someone else? Yup. You can do that too. A lot of the features are available for free and we like what we saw. And based on some of the user feedback, it looks like a lot of them have gone ahead and upgraded to the paid version. It’s that good.
You can download IP Cam Viewer from Google Play, the Apple App Store or from Blackberry App World. Here is a list of supported devices and detailed information on the features. Below is a demo of IP Cam Viewer on the HTC Desire:
