I have a similar app on one of my old Moto Droids. It is sitting in it’s dock running as a video server/ netcam. IF it was still active, not only on WiFi it would send SMS on motion. Now it just records locally on the sd card. Not the best camera, but good enough. In another couple months it will be the music server for my Holidays display.
Wow , thanks @lmosenko , I hadn’t seen the ones that stick to the outside and plug into the usb port. That opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Now if ST could only get the app certified for Amazon so we don’t have to sideload an “mostly working” app.
I hear that @RLDreams. This type of Qi mode can be used on any phone or tablet/pahblet). It works great. I also recommend waiting for Samsung to release the Qi rapid charger. It uses a 2Amp transmitter for faster charging.
Ya, I did notice that the one you linked was only 600mah . Fine for an old phone, but wouldn’t do anything for a tablet. I have 5A and a 9A I use. Even the standard 1.2A chargers won’t put a dent in charging. Then again if it was mounted 24/7 , that 600mah trickle might just do it. Not if it was set up as a netcam though.
Has anyone used an Amazon Fire tablet with the ST app or SmartTiles?
They are dirt cheap now (6 pack for $250), so I was thinking about getting some for a few wall panels and controller for living room and master BR. Just not sure if they run everything smoothly or have the features needed to make a decent wall panel.
