Athome Camera is a remote video surveillance app that can turn your personal computer, smart TV/set-top box, smart phone, and tablet into a professional home monitoring system in seconds.
AtHome Camera will allow you to turn your Mac, Pc, iPhone, iPad, or Android into a security camera without the need of any other software. All you have to do is ensure that you have the app installed on at least two devices, one to broadcast and one to receive, and from there the rest is a piece of cake. You don’t even have to sign up for an account if you don’t want to, there are some advantages though and we will go over those later on.
When launching AtHome Camera you’ll want to select from your iPhone if you are going to connect to a Mac/Pc, Smart Phone, or AtHome IP Camera. Once you’ve selected the device that you are going to connect to AtHome Camera will have you scan the QR Code generated by the broadcast device, this will automatically input the username and password into AtHome Camera so you don’t have to set anything up yourself. From there you will see your broadcast device listed in the main menu ready for you to connect to.
Once a broadcast device has been added tapping on it will initiate a connection to where you can view the stream. This can be done via 3G/LTE connections as well as WiFi ensuring that no matter where you are you can check in on the camera. You’ll have options in the stream to record the broadcast directly to your device, snap screenshots, communicate via microphone with the broadcast device, and set up some preferences. You can enable AtHome Camera to detect motion and automatically record as well as setting up time frames to record continually. To use the Motion Detector and Time Frame you will need to create an account with AtHome Camera but they are free and only require an email address. Don’t let this derail you, all connections and accounts are kept secure and private, they are completely encrypted from both connection ends.
Keep in mind that for our testing we installed AtHome Camera on a Mac and used the iPhone version of the app. The AtHome Camera for iPhone we are using is a viewer only, you’ll need the broadcast version of AtHome Camera to use an iOS or Android device as a broadcast camera.
