With iOS 6 Apple has added additional privacy settings to limit applications from accessing a user's Photos without their permission.

If you want to save images to your Photos Camera Roll you will need to give permission to iSpy to save to your Photos.

If you tapped "Dont' Allow" when prompted and still want to use iSpy to save those images, you can change the setting in your iDevice's Settings > Privacy > Photos screen. (Just turn the iSpy setting to ON.)

iCam Support / iCamWeb Signed Java Applet and Mountain Lion
« on: August 05, 2012, 10:14:19 AM »
There seems to be an issue with all self-signed Java Applets not being allowed to run on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. These types of Java applets are used by many different web applications, including iCamWeb.

This appears to be a one-time issue for new users who have not yet used iCamWeb on a Mac before upgrading it to the latest version of OS X.

A work-around for this issue is:

1. Close your web browser.
2. Open your Mac's System Preferences > Security & Privacy window, and click the lock in the bottom-left corner to make changes.
3. Temporarily change the "Allow applications downloaded from" to "Anywhere".
4. Next, open your web browser and attempt to connect to the web page containing the applet.
5. Check the "Allow all applets from skjm.com with this signature" check box and click the "Allow" button.
6. Go back to your System Preferences window and change the "Allow applications downloaded from" back to "Mac App Store and identified developers".

Now that the Applet has been approved in your Java settings you won't have to go through this process again.

« on: July 20, 2012, 09:10:46 AM »
This latest stable version (2.5) of the iCamSource contains the following changes:

- User is now presented with a "Network Camera Offline" image one minute after losing connection with a network IP camera.
- Various bug fixes and improvements.

This stable release also includes many improvements from the previous BETA versions: http://skjm.com/forum/index.php?board=7.0

The new versions can be downloaded below.

Mac OS X

When Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) is released later this month it will contain a security feature called Gatekeeper (http://www.apple.com/osx/what-is/security.html) that by default will limit third-party Mac apps that are not downloaded from the Mac App Store or digitally signed by the developer. In order to prepare for Mountain Lion, we are releasing two versions of the Mac iCamSource, one for Mac OS X 10.4 & 10.5 (Tiger & Leopard) and one for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and later.

Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 do not have the ability to run digitally signed applications, so that is why they will need a separate build version.

Beta Testing / iCamSource 2.4.8 BETA - Various Fixes & Enhancements
« on: June 25, 2012, 04:48:47 PM »
This latest BETA version (2.4.8) contains the following fixes and improvements:

- The Notification Threshold and Event Image Minimum controls are only visible when the Send Notifications and Record Motion checkboxes are selected, respectively.
- Fixed a bug in the 2.4.7 BETA version where changing the name of the camera could cause the iCamSource to crash.
- The Windows version fixes a bug related to the trimming of Motion Events that was present in 2.4.7 BETA version.
- The Mac version no longer squishes the video stream from the newer widescreen 720p FaceTime HD webcams.

* Since this is a BETA release we would recommend backing up any Motion Events that you do not want accidentally deleted in case there are still some issues to work out with the trimming logic.

The new versions can be downloaded below.

Beta Testing / iCamSource 2.4.7 BETA - Notification Threshold
« on: June 11, 2012, 06:45:14 PM »
Similar to the Motion Event Image Minimum feature that we introduced in version 2.4.6 BETA of the iCamSource, another one of the most requested features is the ability to specify a minimum number of motion detections required before a notification is sent.

Well now with version 2.4.7 BETA of the iCamSource you can assign a Notification Threshold for each camera in the bottom-left corner of the Motion Detection tab. You can assign a minimum value of 1 (the default) up to 9. The value represents the minimum number of contiguous detections required before a notification is sent.

Additionally we have altered the Motion Event Image Minimum trimming logic to include the most recent Motion Event once enough time has passed to guarantee that no more images will be added to the event. This should do away with any of those lingering below-threshold-image-count Motion Events.

* Since this is a BETA release we would recommend backing up any Motion Events that you do not want accidentally deleted in case there are still some issues to work out with the trimming logic.

The new versions can be downloaded below.

Beta Testing / iCamSource 2.4.6 BETA - Motion Event Image Minimum
« on: May 31, 2012, 03:40:21 PM »
One of the most requested features that we receive from our users is the ability to assign a minimum threshold for the number of images required for a stored Motion Event. Depending on what type of scene a camera is viewing, iCamSources can end up accumulating large numbers of 1- and 2-image Motion Events which are of little use and are ultimately deleted.

Well now with version 2.4.6 BETA of the iCamSource you can assign a Motion Event Image Minimum for each camera in the bottom-right corner of the Motion Detection tab. You can assign a minimum value of 1 (the default) up to 9. The value represents the minimum required number of images that must be contained in a Motion Event for it to be retained during the periodic trimming process that occurs every 5 minutes or so.

(The most recent Motion Event will not be removed during the trimming process if it falls below the minimum, but all older Motion Events will be subject to removal if they do not contain the minimum number of images.)

* Since this is a BETA release we would recommend backing up any Motion Events that you do not want accidentally deleted in case there are still some issues to work out with the trimming logic.

The new versions can be downloaded below.

Beta Testing / iCamSource 2.4.5 BETA - Foscam Audio Support
« on: February 06, 2012, 01:32:33 PM »
A new BETA version of the iCamSource (2.4.5) is now available and includes audio support for Foscam network IP cameras. We have tested this version with our Foscam FI8908W and FI8918W test cameras using the http://x.x.x.x/video.cgi MJPEG URL.

The new version can be downloaded below:

Mac - http://skjm.com/icam/iCamSource2.4.5.dmg

One of the ways to get the most out iCam is to set up a number of WiFi network IP cameras around your house so that you are not just limited to monitoring the room occupied by the computer. One issue for non-Windows users is that the majority of the more "reasonably-priced" WiFi cameras officially only support Windows. What most users don't know is that you can still connect to and view these cameras from a non-Windows device once they have been configured to connect to your local network. The problem is that the configuration applications included with these cameras are often Windows-only. If you do not have a Windows computer at your disposal to run the camera manufacturer's configuration application then we are now offering IP Cam Config for Mac and iOS to configure the camera to connect to your local network.

IP Cam Config has been tested as being compatible with the following network IP cameras:

AirLink101
SkyIPCam500
SkyIPCam500W
SkyIPCam747W
SkyIPCam1500W
SkyIPCam1747W

Cameras from other manufacturers (such as TrendNET and DIGITUS, for example) seem to share the same internals as the AirLink101 cameras that we tested, so they should also be configurable with IP Cam Config.

As more specific camera manufacturers and models are confirmed to be working with IP Cam Config we will also be adding those to the list, so if you have any AirLink101 cameras that are not listed above or perhaps any TrendNET (or other manufacturers') cameras that are likely compatible (if their Windows configuration utility looks like the AirLink101 and TrendNET examples below) then if you send an e-mail to support@skjm.com with the brand(s) and model(s) of the camera(s) that you own we may be able to send you a free promo code for the Mac or iOS version of IP Cam Config for you to test with.



If you have any comments or questions you can visit http://skjm.com/ipcamconfig/ or send us an e-mail or reply to this post.

Thanks! :)

Some Mac OS X 10.7 Lion users with certain Logitech webcams have been experiencing audio cutting out shortly after zooming in with iCam, and the latest BETA version (2.3.3) should remedy the issue.

For some reason the audio compression code we use generates slightly different audio data in Lion than it does in Snow Leopard, causing issues with playback in iCam. We have made adjustments to the audio compression code to handle the difference, and it does fix the issue in our testing.

The new version can be downloaded from the iCam Support page or form the link below:
