Camera Options:

For this project, I used the Ai-Ball tiny IPCam.  However, take my word for it, it’s a waste of money and a battery pig. It’s only advantage is that it’s small.    If you are using the Ai-Ball or other similar webcam, the configuration is as noted below.  If you have a spare phone laying around that has a camera,  I suggest you get IP Webcam from Google Play.  This  great little app allows you to turn your mobile phone into a webcam and access its video stream.  The full screen streaming Javascript seems to work best.  Give it a try – use your local IP address:  http://192.168.x.x:8080/jsfs.html (check IP Webcam settings).


  • You have an IPCamera that is configured and can be viewed in your web browser.
  • You have the URL, username and password (if necessary) to access the IP camera.
  • If you are viewing your IP camera outside your network, you will have to setup a dynamic DNS service and/or port forwarding to remotely access it. 
  • Click the Camera settings icon in the menu and setup your camera URL (see below)
  • Enter the camera URL, click add, and check the button beside the camera you want to view.
  • You can enter and store up to 3 cameras.
