MobCam is a freeware application for mobile phones using the SYMBIAN operation system.This enables you to create a quick and easy mobile WEB camera that can be placed just about anywhere. Then you can look at the pictures from this WEB camera on-line at www.mobcam.cz
How to use it
Program installation is very simple; you can start it immediately after downloading the SIS file into your mobile. These pages describe how to set up the programme.
As soon as you start the MobCam application on your mobile, you’ll be able to begin on-line watching of the mobile camera shots on this web site. All you have to do is enter the number you see on the mobile display into the CODE field.
Installing and setting up Mobcam
After automatic installation, you have to perform a very simple application setup. MobCam can operate in three various modes:
Periodical sending: The mobile phone takes pictures periodically (e.g. every minute), sending them immediately to www.mobcam.cz where you can look at them.
Motion detection: At the moment of any motion being detected in front of the mobile camera lens, results in the MobCam application taking a picture and sending it immediately to the server at www.mobcam.cz.
SMS detection: The application takes no pictures. At the moment an SMS with a set password is received, MobCam takes a picture and sends it to the server at www.mobcam.cz.
Select from the application menu to choose one of the modes. The “SMS” mode can operate even when the other two modes have been activated. MobCam is started at the moment you select “Start” from the menu. After that, the display will show a number (CODE); enter this number on the web site at www.mobcam.cz and then you can start watching the images from your mobile camera.
Only the people with the knowledge of your numeric code (CODE) can look at the pictures from your mobile WEB camera. If you want more of your friends to be able to watch your MobCam, just send your CODE to them. You can also add optional comments to your camera (such as “camera in my car” or “camera in my fridge”). After entering the comments, you then have to choose a password so that nobody else can change these comments.
