Step 1: Downloading ICam for Your Iphone/ipod Touch
First, go into the app store in your iphone or ipod touch.
Next, go to search.
Next, touch the search bar and type in 'iCam' and hit search.
Next, open the app and tap the '$4.99' button. Tap purchase. Enter your itunes ID and wait for it to install. (If you have a jailbroken iphone/ipod, and you have 'installous' and/or 'mobileinstallationpatch', you can get this app for free. This method is considered pirating. I do not condone this method and you are doing so at your own risk, but if you follow this instructable and actually pay for the app, it is legal).
Step 2: Downloading the ICam Program on Your Computer
Go to http://skjm.com/icam/
Next, click 'Click here to learn more'
Next, download the program to your respective system. I will be doing this for a Mac based computer. But if you follow these steps (using the pc program) it should be the similar, if not the same.
Next, after you download it, open the dmg and drag the application to your application folder on your Macintosh HD. (Open the .exe for pc and install as you would a regular program).
Step 3: Setting Up ICam
Now, you can set your sensitivity of the speed, select where you want the video and/or audio to come from (I used the built in isight camera and microphone) and once you're ready, you click 'start' and the camera will turn on.
Step 4: Setting Up Your Iphone/ipod Touch
Enter the Username and password you chose earlier and click done. iCam will load with 4 frames (if you have multiple cameras). As you can see from mine, I only have one camera set up under the username and password. Tap the desired frame you wish to view and watch and listen in real time of what is happening.
Unfortunately, there are ads in this app, but they are small and I tune them out.
You can now remotely view what's going on wherever you are.
This is great for dorms, apartments, to watch your dog or child, etc. Yes, if someone breaks in and steals it, you are out of luck. I would recommend a 'motion detection' software of some sort. But if you're using it to spy on a roommate, you're golden.
I will be going to college this fall and I will be using this app a lot. lol
Thanks and have fun!
