Webcam Pics to Email
Send webcam pictures from your browser to your email.
Capture pictures using a button, by interval, or through motion detection.
Note: Gmail (if used) sometimes does not scan all of the received pictures because of the volume and instead
displays a message that the attachment has not been scanned for viruses. The attachments are your pictures in
jpg format, do not contain viruses, and are always safe to open even if the gmail scanners get behind.
This works with up-to-date Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and Opera browsers on Windows, Mac, and Android.
Computer power save mode may need to be turned off to prevent camera power-down.
To conserver power the monitor can be manually turned off while the app is running.
Note that motion detection is based on a pixel to pixel comparison so sudden changes in
light can also trigger the motion detection algorithm.
If your pictures do not show up, be sure to check your spam folder and mark the pictures as not spam if found there.
Android Phone Security Camera
In addition to a PC or Mac webcam, you can also turn an Android phone into a free motion detecting security camera. A phone with no
contract works - all that is required is that your phone is able to connect to a WiFi network. From your phone: (1) connect to a WiFi
network (2) install the Google Chrome app (3) visit this web page using Google Chrome and (4) set the email address and choose the
motion detection option. The phone will need to be plugged in (charging) if used with this app for extended periods of time.
