tinyCam Pro is a powerful app that allows you to turn your Android device into a smart home surveillance system. With its built-in web server feature, you can easily access your cameras remotely from any web browser. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps of setting up and using the tinyCam Pro web server.

Step 1: Install tinyCam Pro

If you haven’t already, start by downloading and installing the tinyCam Pro app from the Google Play Store. Once installed, open the app on your Android device.

Step 2: Enable Web Server

Now, let’s enable the web server feature in tinyCam Pro. Open the app and tap on the menu icon in the top-left corner of the screen.

From the menu, select “Settings”.

Tip: If you are using a free version of tinyCam, some advanced features like web server may require an upgrade to the paid version.

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find “Web Server” under “Background Mode”. Tap on it to open the Web Server settings.

Step 3: Configure Web Server Settings

In the Web Server settings, you can customize various options according to your preferences.

Port Number

Port number specifies which port will be used to access the web server. The default port is 8083, but you can change it if needed.

Login Credentials

If you want to secure your web server with login credentials, enable “Authentication”. You can set a username and password for accessing your cameras via a web browser.

Video Format

Choose the desired video format for streaming your cameras over the web. You can select between MJPEG, H.264, or MPEG-4.

Other Settings

Other web server settings include options like enabling audio streaming, enabling HTTPS for secure connections, and more. Feel free to explore these settings and adjust them according to your needs.

Step 4: Accessing Cameras via Web Browser

Once you have configured the web server settings, it’s time to access your cameras from a web browser on any device connected to the same network.

Local Network Access

If you are on the same local network as your Android device running tinyCam Pro, open a web browser and enter the IP address of your Android device followed by a colon and the port number you set in Step 3. For example, if your device’s IP address is 192.168.0.100 and you set the port number as 8083, enter “192.100:8083”.

Remote Access

If you want to access your cameras remotely over the internet, you will need to configure port forwarding on your router and use your public IP address instead of the local IP address mentioned above.

Conclusion

Congratulations! You have successfully set up and configured tinyCam Pro’s web server feature, allowing you to access your surveillance cameras from any web browser. Whether you are at home or on-the-go, tinyCam Pro provides a convenient way to keep an eye on what matters most to you.

  • TIP: Remember to keep your Android device running tinyCam Pro connected to the power source and on the same network for uninterrupted access.
  • TIP: Make sure to secure your web server with a strong username and password to prevent unauthorized access.
