there are a variety of choices for this on the iOS App store. I have used a couple of them with SmartTiles video but I’m unaware of any that allow full integration into SmartThings. I tried the generic MJPEG camera device type and it didn’t work.

I recommend “IP Camera High End Network Camera” and specifically DO NOT recommend “IP Cam” from Senstic. The latter crashes every 12 hours approximately.

OK thanks! Have you an example? I have a samsung s4 as old cell and I had to install the IP cam but it does not work. Just give me a track to be followed if possible. My English is bad that not help me but I want to try.

Just downloaded this. What link did you use for smarttiles? Straight IP address doesn’t seem to be working.

In a browser, go to the ip address. Here, you can set image preferences. On the image that you see on that page, control/right click and “Open image in new tab”

The new tab will have the correct address. it’s probably something like http://192.168.0.34/live

I managed with IP WEBCAM. We had to add video after the ip address. Thank you very much. Now that he is in smartiles how to integrate in smartthings?

I was unable to do so, but now we’re talking about different platforms and I never used a program called “IP Webcam.”
