Hey Guys -
I started a new job somewhat recently where I’m traveling a lot however must leave a wife and 8 month old each time. I’m trying to find the best solution for a private and easy to use video conferencing system for the house which would be dead simple for the wife to operate as she isn’t a tech person and not very patient. With Amazon’s Prime Days starting, I’m planning to get any equipment needed. Below are ideas I’ve thought of so far with notes if they wouldn’t work…
I’m posting here because my preference is to set up a static camera for the home side - not a phone - so phone apps really don’t apply. I am testing our Skype using an attached a webcam to the PC in our living room which runs Kodi for our TV. I even went as far as finding a Kodi plugin for Skype, however for some reason its not reliable and frustrating getting AV to work all of the time
What would be ideal is something integrated with SmartThings so that it could be used for security as well. I found that the Amazon Cloud Cam was on sale for Prime Day, but that it didn’t have SmartThings support.
