When you have the apps downloaded, tap on the IP Webcam app. You will find lots of settings for the app. Scroll down to the bottom and tap on 'Start server'. Your IP camera is now live! You should now see through your phone's camera. At the bottom of the screen, you will see an IP address http://.............. Write that down, since you will need it for the next step.
