Previously, we talked about taking pictures and recording videos by controlling one phone camera remotely from other phone or tablet. That remote camera control works only through WiFi or Bluetooth connection. So what if you can access a phone camera and view live camera streaming by staying miles away from it even when phone screen is locked?

The way I’m talking about employs a phone now for security or surveillance purpose. This idea pan out the ability to watch and record what is going on in the house, in the basement or in the garden right from your Tablet screen. Your mobile camera setup will be connected over WiFi on same network or Internet. The camera stream will be viewed and recorded from the tablet web browser, or Ivideon and TinyCam Monitor (the monitor apps connect you with the cams). You can even switch the light of mobile camera from your tablet for the night watch or recordings.
