I thought I would create a topic for TinyCam Pro , https://www.tinycammonitor.com , because it is working well for me with ActionTiles. I’m using it to suplpement my outdoor Arlo’s with a few cameras inside. It’s running on my old Samsung S4 Android phone. I have…
-Streaming the S4’s internal camera
-Streaming a WyzeCam camera (v1)
-Streaming a WyzeCam Pan camera
-Streaming an old iPhone 3GS camera (using IPCamera iOS app).
-TinyCam web server allows me to have one device/application port forwarded on my router so I can view several “IP cameras” remotely (password protected).
-Can view each camera separately in ActionTiles media tiles with URL like this:
-With a WebCore URL endpoint set up and a SmartThings virtual moion sensor, I am able to have TinyCam detect motion on any/all of the cameras and set the virtual motion sensor active for SmartThings. I set this up but I haven’t tested for false alarms much yet. Under each camera motion settings is the Webhook URL for interface to WebCore or IFTTT.
-I’m running it with low-bandwidth option set, not really streaming full motion video. Mainly just like to have more camera views to check in on house via ActionTiles. I normally have it set in ActionTiles to refresh every 10sec but I did test it and it will refresh at 1 frame per second.
-It has record on motion (to the android storage) but haven’t tried that yet.
