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: If you are using gmail, the gmail virus scanners can sometimes get behind.
When this happens, gmail does not show the picture thumbnail and instead warns that it has not yet scanned the attachment.
These attachments are your pictures in jpg format, do not contain viruses, and can still be safely opened.
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.
