Re: tinyCam Monitor for Android with FOSCAM audio

Postby TechNewDaddy » Thu Sep 08, 2011 9:06 am

I am going to be a first time father later this year and I purchased a few Foscam 8908 to set up as baby monitors/nanny cams (i have not yet received them). I was looking for a good android app for viewing my foscam IP cams and was wondering what your thoughts were on the best.

I have read about tinyCam Monitor and it sounds good, the only thing it appears that it does not have is the 2 way audio for my foscam 8908's.

Can anyone confirm this is the case or recommend another product that I might be able to use on my android device that will support 2 way audio for the FI8908.

Thank you for your time!!!

No one knows if TinyCAM is 2 way audio capable with the 8908?

I use 'IP Cam Viewer' on both my iPhone and iPad and it has 2 way audio to my 8918 cameras. There is also an Android version which also claims to have 2 way audio, but I obviosly cannot confirm that.

What I like is the fact that it is a multi-camera app, but you can choose how many cameras to display in the front page. A click on any camera display will then display that camera full screen. It's the best app for me out of about 10 I've tried.

We are working on 2-w audio for FOSCAM. It will be ready in a couple weeks.

Currently tinyCam Monitor supports 1-w audio (listening) for FOSCAM FI8908 which should be good for using it as a baby monitor. More baby monitor oriented features will be released in the next version also.

It will be definitely ready in two weeks. You will be able to specify audio level threshold (squelch parameter). You will not hear audio until threshold reached (baby is crying for instance).
