is there a way to view the camera ( v3) from a computer while i am working at the computer , or is it only through the app i have on my phone?
Yes, viewing cams by phone and your computer’s browser are available. Check this thread out here for details!
@StopICU33 is correct and provided a great link. Only thing to add, which is stated in the link is that the Live View for Browsers is only available to Cam Plus customers at this time.
These guys were nice and gave you the freshest answer but if you’re a masochist craving more background the sordid developing story is at
So far in testing I can see cams in full screen on my Win10 PC and cast it to Lrm. TV by way of Chromecast.
On my Pixel 1 phone I was able to zoom with 2 fingers and scroll sideways.
You can flash the rtsp firmware and then view it through eg VLC on the computer. That might increase computer usage more. I didn’t do any tests.
Its also quite a bit of a pain over just paying forever and having a more simple setup. If you have cam plus anyway then there’s not really any reason to use rtsp. But for me, I find no reason to use cam plus, so rtsp is more my thing.
