The myCamera will help you monitor and control MULTIPLE external FOSCAM MJPEG IP Cameras.
The application is designed to interface to external FOSCAM MJPEG IP Cameras, that should be available on your local WiFi network or remotely on the internet (using MYFOSCAM.ORG).
For each camera, the user can specify the IP Address, Port Number, Password & User Name and the Camera Model (through the Settings Charm).
The myCamera will monitor Sound and Motion Alarms signals from the cameras. The application can Automatically record video when Sound and/or Motion are triggered (user selection). The myCamera will not play sound.
The cameras can be operated on the local WiFi network or remotely over the Internet.

Find / Set the Local IP Address and Port number of each camera in your WiFi network 2. Find / Set the User Name, Password for the cameras 3.
