The easiest way is automatically add all your cameras via "Scan Network" feature available in the app. After the cameras added, you need to specify cameras username and password.
To add camera manually go to "Manage Cameras", and press "Add IP camera, NVR/DVR". In "Camera Settings" you have to specify your camera vendor, model, hostname, port number, username, and password.
For advanced users we have an option to add any camera model by specifying camera requests manually.
Please provide us a temporary access to your camera (see contacts). We will try to add it.
You need to setup port forwarding on your router. Port forwarding forwards all traffic from your private camera to external network, e.g. from 192.168.0.3:8080 to your_external_ip:8080. Read the router manual for how to do that or contact your system network administrator. Enter your external IP address and port number in tinyCam Monitor when you've done.
Usually DSL connections renew their IP addresses after 24 hours. Use DDNS service to get fixed domain name, e.g. free noip.com.
You need to install on your PC either Netcam Studio (recommended), AbelCam or Yawcam software which support USB cams broadcasting. For the vendor name select Windows in tinyCam Monitor's Camera Settings.
For Windows Phone - IP Camera (ShenYao China)
For Android device we highly recommend to install any free apps IP Webcam or spyNet Cloud IP Camera. These apps allow using your Android device as an IP camera. Then you can use tinyCam Monitor on another Android device for monitoring video. Check this video.
