The first impression

The first thing that offers us the IP Webcam -. The possibility to configure it. Indeed, without the original program settings it will be difficult to use. Moreover, once it becomes clear what the app is capable of, the benefit of setting themselves in Russian with detailed annotations to the functions. Personally, I liked this approach immediately.

since many parameters, to avoid confusion, let’s start with the top of the order, categorized settings.

Basic Settings

It should be noted that the program supports loop recording, ie video shooting will take place in a circle with different time segments. This last set can have anything – it all depends on the memory device. As a result, you do not get one big file, and a kind of series, which is easy to understand.

By the way, the developers provided and limiting the recording during a certain amount of memory. However, the record will not be stopped, but simply begin to overwrite old clips with new ones. Threshold of free space, you also expose yourself.

I was also pleased with the fact that the bit rate can be set manually – from 400 to 16 000 kbit / s, as well as choose the format: MOV, WebM and MP4. Used as the codec VP8 + Opus and H.264 + AAC.

Let me remind you that WebM – open multimedia format presented by Google at the conference Google I / O May 19, 2010. The format does not require royalties, based on open VP8 video codec and vp9, audio codec Vorbis and a subset of the Matroska media container. The new format along with VP8 is designed to replace proprietary standard H.264 / MPEG-4.

You can also select the storage recording place, although change the last I did not succeed. By default, the folder is stored in ipwebcam_videos, but change the location – it is rather the prerogative of the paid version, which is also present here.

Free also includes non-intrusive advertising, but does not support the generation of Tasker event, can not be used to edit the interface and recorded video has a banner “recorded with IP Webcam”. Remove restrictions possible for 99 rubles, which, frankly, is godly.

in addition, available to change the video resolution (depending on the camera unit) – from 176×144 to 1280×720 pixels in my case, and the photo (from 320×240 to 1600×1200 pixels). So, you decide what you need quality.

This solution is very helpful if you have a low speed internet or a small flash drive. For example, the daily monitoring of the child to exhibit high resolution is not necessary.

Here we change the orientation of the video, which can be a portrait, landscape, upside down and upside down portrait. This solution is especially true if you are using a tablet, and prevents the charging cord – is checked up on personal experience.

You can also enable mirroring, only use the front camera and limit the FPS, and manually. But that’s not all. Available to change the focus, adjust the screen refresh rate, choose a scene, set the white balance, set the color filter, and set the exposure compensation (-3 to +3).

Advanced Settings

Effect settings

It is worth noting, “night vision.” At the same time exhibited by frame delay (by hand), as well as the intensity of a specific multiple of the number. I’d add that this case is at least up and running, but on a good camera. In the budget that gets bride, and the battery is not weak sags.

In addition, the recording can impose the date, time and even the battery charge level. It is possible to select the date format, its position on the screen, color / background and text size. Yes, the developers really did their best.

power Management

Here manually expose period of inactivity, it is possible to stop the video surveillance and recording, if the camera is not in use, as well as the screen auto power off when idle.

Sleep Mode provides the latest lock option (for Android 3.0), as well as the complete shutdown of the screen, which has a positive effect on the work of the web service, but at the same time causes strain the processor.

sensors Management

This setting item will activate the motion sensor (increases the drain on the battery even if the camera is turned off). Then adjust the sensitivity. The default value is 250, but for a small room such as the kitchen, this would be too much, since recording is triggered at the slightest fluctuations hands in front of the lens.

In general, the best experiment for yourself, because it all depends on local conditions, and you will constantly shoot flying flies. For this purpose, provided timeout movement – at most five seconds of time, but can be set more.

I must say that while working in the home Wi-Fi network entry is performed in the memory devices, when you dial up – in Ivideon cloud. There are tariffs, which we discuss below.

With regard to the adjustment of sound sensor, then there is also provided timeout and sensitivity similar to the motion sensor. In this video you can start zavis not only movement, but also the noise around the camera, for example, the roar of falling spoon. That’s what I was convicted cat steal bread from the table at night .

188x300 25 KB Big one:. 800x1280 165 KB  188x300 28 KB Big one:. 800x1280 184 KB

In addition, separately configured action on the motion is detected. For example, stop recording if there is no activity in front of the camera or play a sound, if any, has been observed.

And that’s not all – there is also a built-in Tasker’s, by which a motion sensor can be assigned to anything, but this will need to fork out for 99 rubles.
