Use the Hyakume ("Hundred Eyes") app to watch and record the H.264 and MJPEG video streams produced by a wide variety of modern IP cameras (security, surveillance, doorbell, baby/pet monitors, webcams, traffic, weather, etc).
If you have IP cameras you'd like to access remotely, you can setup Hyakume as a relay server.
The Free version supports ten camera entries in a single camera list.
The Paid version supports one hundred camera entries in 10 camera lists (10 per list). Create separate lists for your home, business, workshop, etc.
When your Android device connects to the local Wi-Fi network, you can start watching the local IP cameras.
Hyakume is a generic client, compatible with many cameras. To add a camera entry, supply the IPv4 address, video stream path, format and port (ex. 192.168.5.20, "/video/h264", "H264", 554).
You can also use ONVIF device discovery to locate cameras on the local network.
Tap the "Test this Connection" button. If the camera is reachable, a thumbnail image of its video feed will be generated. Tap the check-mark to save the new camera entry.
The camera entries in the active camera list are displayed and polled continuously. If a camera is online (reachable) a thumbnail image and polling timestamp will be displayed.
Tap the entry to open its video stream. While watching the stream, you can record video segments, capture snapshot images, and expand the video stream to full-screen.
The recorded video segments and snapshot images are saved to local device storage as timestamped MP4 and PNG media files. These files can be reviewed in the Hyakume app, and uploaded later for sharing and archival.
If you have a spare Android device available, you can set it up as a dedicated Relay Server.
Connect the device to the local network (and power). Enable the Relay Server in Settings and assign it a port number, username and password.
Activate the Server. The camera entries in its default camera list can now be accessed remotely by authorized Hyakume devices.
The Relay Server's Web Client module enables remote access by desktop/mobile web browsers.
The Relay Server uses TLS/SSL encryption and mandatory authentication to protect your data.
Remote access through the Relay Server is FREE. All you need is a spare Android device and a decent Internet connection.
