Remote Camera

Remote Camera


Have phone and tablet or second phone and want to reach where eyes can't reach, or want to look on your sleeping baby from other room, take picture without revealing this, this app is just for you.

Communication takes place directly between two devices equipped with this software, communication doesn't result in any charges, but distance is limited.
Systems equipped with Java software can control camera on mobile device using Remote Camera Java app, http://programy.jastrzab.com/remote_camera/

How to use it ?

1. instal app on both devices
2. on first device turn on Server
3. on second device, find device with name or address that matches to first device name or address and tap on it to establish connection
4. if connected, you can make pictures or just see what first device is seeing but on second device

Remember about !

● To communicate using Bluetooth mode, device must be equipped with Bluetooth
● To communicate using Wifi mode, device must be equipped with WIFI
● Pictures are always saved on server device
● Device acting as server can consume large amount of power so without access to power source working time may be limited
● Electromagnetic interference, obstacles and distance can cause communication problems even connection break
● Preview smoothness depends on device and connection performance
● Devices must be within the communication range or in the same network for WIFI connection
● Bluetooth adapter must be enabled and devices must be paired for Bluetooth connection
● On devices with android older than 3.0, device acting as server can only transmit preview, cannot take pictures
● To activate autofocus press shutter longer and release to take picture, short press will take picture immediately without autofocus
● To unpin floating preview window, double-tap

Have problem ?

● If server device is not on the clients list you probably will need to pair devices for Bluetooth connection or be within the same network for Wifi connection
● If for some reason in WIfi mode, server isn't visible on clients list, need to enter address manually by clicking on Connect item
● If preview is stopped try to reconnect, if connection will be unsuccessful then restart server

How Wifi discovering works ?

● Discovering is active only if user is present, this means when app is visible, screen is on and device is unlocked and if active connection mode is WIFI
● Only if app is acting as server will broadcast address
● If server is disabled app is listening for incoming broadcast from other device but without broadcasting
● Discovering mode works only for devices in the same network segment in other words in the same subnet

Recent changes:
- added WIFI wakelock for WIFI mode
- added pinch zoom as a new method to resize floating window
- bug fix
- added notification icon for floating window and service behind floating window will run in foreground mode

Great app for short time monitor I have used this app between my Samsung Mega phone and my Samsung Galaxy S3. it works as described as I use the hotspot on my Mega phone to connect the S3 to it for remote camera use, the only thing I have an issue with is the server on the S3 times out and drops connection after 20 minutes each time, this I would like to see an option to change and make it unlimited because of the use I am making out of the remote camera on multiple levels, I don't like having to reselect the app each time on the S3 to keep it connected. Please advise if there is going to be an update or an option to set this in tools. Thanks for the Great App.
