For those of you wondering if you can setup a DIY home security video surveillance system with Android smartphones and tablets, let me tell you that you can easily do it using free apps like IP Webcam and TinyCam Monitor.
First, you can install IP webcam on every Android device that you want to act as security cameras.
Next, install TinyCam Monitor app and set the IP address to the Android devices you want to monitor.
And that’s pretty much it, now you can monitor your garage, front door, and backyard in real-time from your Android smartphone or tablet.
You can also monitor all of your home from anywhere in the world by setting up a DDNS (Dynamic DNS) on your route but we will get into that next time.
