Compro have a great range of IP cameras. In my last blog on Compro cameras I posted a video on the IP70. It’s a great camera that gives excellent video and audio quality at a good price as well as decent night vision.
I have embedded the video below to show you how it looks. My Compro IP70s give a nighttime picture quality similar to what you see below in IR LED mode.
The only area I felt the Compro could improve was when viewed on my phone. I could browse to the camera’s website and that gave me decent quality but was a bit clunky. I recently discovered an App for my Android-based phone that circumvents all that.
The Android App is called IP Camera Viewer. It is completely compatible with the Compro IP 70 and allows me to monitor my cameras at the touch of a button.
To get the app just search for “IP camera viewer” in your Android marketplace. Set up is easy, just give it IP and login details.
Here are the details from the app website:
Remotely view and control your IP Camera, DVR, and Network Video Recorder using your phone.Includes a database of public web cams around the world like Traffic Camreas.
Supports SSL, H.264, audio on some cameras, pan/tilt, optical zoom, presets, relay control and digital pinch to zoom.
Add your cameras to your home screen with widgets (controllable refresh rate),Have dozens of cameras? Group them for quick recall.
Matrix view, gallery view and digital zoom mode.Setup once, export settings to sdcard, option to share cameras, and browser integration.
Setup your IP and web cams once. No need to open each camera in a browser or log in multiple times.
Apple iOS version available (IP Camera Viewer)Blackberry 6.0 version available (Live Cams)Windows Phone 7 version under development
Over 400+ different makes/models supported (there are many copy cat apps out there but none support h.264, audio and offer the breadth of support).
