Question about remote CAM
posted by curiousleo to computers & internet
I need to install a some type of remote cam for a store.
I don't necessary need recording feature.
It needs to be viewable via internet.
I have hard time even trying to remote access store's system so I need something very simple.
GoToMyPC works perfectly for me. Anything VPN seems way to complicated for me.
I tried GotoMYPC to view cam but it has too slow of reflesh rate. Although I imagine manually turning on MSN messenger type thing from both ends to view CAM pictures.... but that is a bit cumbersome also.
I also need to have at least 3 cameras.
IP CAM seems o.k. but as I said anything network seems to be little too difficult for me....
It would be super if I can find something that is similar to Gotomypc for cam... (web cam viewing?)
The cams need to be viewable 24hours a day...
What is good long term reputable service that may do this at reasonable price? or Can someone suggest step by step how I can do this? I already have spare computer that can be on 24hours day... a wireless router... (possibility to have static IP address.. although it cost more)
