iPCamera lets you use your iOS device as a wireless network camera! You can use every web browser as live monitor!
With iPCamera you can use any iOS device as ip network camera. The app creates a web server which you can connect to with every web browser on a computer on the same local network as the iOS device. The network address which you enter in your web browser on your computer is displayed on the bottom of the screen. After you connected to the web server you see in your web browser a live view of the camera and a control interface to alter camera parameters, i.e. torch-control, resolution, frame-rate, quality, camera-selection, orientation, mirroring, etc.
iPCamera delivers market-leading ultra low-delay, super fluid and crystal clear video.
Possible applications of this app are surveillance applications or using your iOS device as a FPV device (first person view) for robots or rc cars.
You can protect the access to the app by http-authentication. The username and password for this can be set up in the app-preferences (in the settings-app).
-support of more resolutions including 1080p and 4K
-support of more frame rates including 50 and 60fps
Ratings and Reviews
Works right out of the box
So far so good! I’m impressed. I went to the link on my browser and the video stream showed up right away. Changing configuration is more reliable from the browser than from the phone. I was easily getting 30 FPS with pretty good quality images.
I’m giving 4 stars because the app froze when I tried changing the configuration from my phone rather than from the browser. Otherwise, works just as I need it to!
Works great a a local camera
I use this app on my old phones along with Home Assistant.
Not Working Yet
I have emailed the developer of the app to try and work out the bug that causes the app to crash when trying to log in via browser. I have tried the reboot trick that some are reporting fixes the issue but that didn't work for me. I also noted that the app crashes when attempting to double tap the screen into dark mode. The app is useless unless I can log in. For that it gets one star until such time the developer remedies the crashing issues.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
