Getting Started
[ Using iCamSource Pro for Mac or Windows | Using iCamSource Pro Mobile for iOS ]

Overview

iCam Pro is the mobile application for iOS (iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad) and Android devices that allows you to view your computer webcams or network IP cameras over the Internet. The iCamSource Pro is the free computer application that streams your webcams and network IP cameras to iCam Pro.

The iCamSource Pro also monitors the video and audio streams to record Events and send Notifications to iCam Pro whenever motion or sound are detected.

Setup

The first step is to download the iCamSource Pro application to your computer and the iCam Pro app to your iOS (iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad) or Android device.

The iCamSource Pro allows you to add up to 16 webcams or network IP cameras from a single computer, although your computer's hardware limitations (USB bus, CPU, memory) may further limit that number.

USB / Firewire / Built-In Cameras

For USB, FireWire, or Built-In webcams (cameras that are connected directly to your computer), you should be able to make your choice from the Audio and Video drop-down lists underneath the USB / FireWire / Built-In tab. If your webcam natively supports widescreen video, you will also be able to optionally select the Widescreen video option to capture and send widescreen video to iCam Pro.

Ethernet / Wi-Fi Cameras

If you are using a stand-alone network IP camera that connects directly to your network via WiFi or Ethernet cable, choose the Ethernet / Wi-Fi tab instead. The iCamSource Pro is compatible with network IP cameras that support JPEG or MJPEG (Motion JPEG) video streaming. DVRs or cameras that support h.264 or MPEG-4 video are not compatible. To connect the iCamSource Pro to your network IP camera, enter either your camera's MJPEG or JPEG URL, or the URL that you use to connect to your camera using your web browser, and the iCamSource Pro will attempt to detect the correct URL for your camera.

iCam Pro Login and Password

The next step is to enter an iCam Pro Login and Password combination of your choice into the iCamSource Pro and click the Start button. You do not need to register or create an account, but we do suggest that you choose a combination not too easily guessed.

Once you have clicked the Start button you should see your camera's preview video in the iCamSource Pro Preferences window. If not, please refer to the iCamSource Pro Troubleshooting section.

The final steps are to enter the same iCam Pro Login and Password combination into the iCam Pro Options screen, and tap the Done button. iCam Pro should then connect to your iCamSource Pro, but if not, please refer to the iCam Pro Troubleshooting section.
