I’m just starting to work on setting up cameras around the house to help monitor things. Now, I know that SmartThings camera integration is limited, and that’s OK at this point. What I want to do is have multiple cameras set up, but only end up port forwarding one port on the router to handle the camera feeds. There’s a handful of Windows based security software suites that I have found, but even though I know they say ‘You get what you pay for’ I’m looking for the lowest cost solution that actually works… free is of course always best, but that might not end up being the best solution.
Currently, I have ISPYconnect installed and configured with my first webcam (my McGuyver setup of an old android phone with IP Webcam software installed, strapped to my garage door opener to watch the garage door status) -though seeing a weird FPS issue after awhile, not sure if it’s the IP Webcam software or ISPYconnect.
My question comes to this - what do you all have for this, and why?
