    Network Camera Results

    OK, my wife wanted an Internet camera so we could see the pool on our home computers. I was initially like, "why?" but as usual it turned out to be a good idea. Here is a screen cap of the cam from media room. Also, the 1st pic of my pool on TFP. Hoping it helps to stir your imaginations.



    PS I will add that the water is much more prettier and deeper blue than is shown. Thanks TFP!

    Great looking pool. It's also good for safety. Adding a motion detector or motion detection software can be helpful to detect activity in the area.

    Re: Network Camera Results

    I would love to get another camera as well so that I can face it at the pool for when the kiddos are home alone, or we are all gone (heaven forbid someone "wanders"in). I currently have two inside my home monitoring my common areas to watch the kids/pets while we are at work. These areas would also catch any intrusion/sneaking out as they cover the exterior doors....my kids are going to hate me come the teenage years when they get a little more adventurous.

    Here is the upstairs one....I'd wave but I had to use both hands to capture the screenshot.

    I have 5 web cams throughout my home and outside. Check out iSpy - works like a champ (and it is free).

    With smartthings can you check on any of the cameras at any time though the app? I'm itching to get started with a home automation system, but its not a high priority in my budget right now.

    I use the Samsung app (free) to view them from anywhere, anytime on my phone/ tablet. <br />
    <br />
    Through SmartThings I have them setup as a security system (free if used as a text notification setup) to record for a period of time when doors open. I use the built in motion sensor (which can also be utilised through SmartThings) to record continuously 24/7 until the memory card is full and then it just records over the old video.
