Our mission is to let you connect any video device, no matter what brand and type.
In general, you can connect any device supporting the following:
h.264 video encoding/compression & RTSP streaming protocol
MJPEG video encoding/compression & HTTP protocol
See the above 4 terms in technical specification of your camera - if found, you can be 99.9% sure your device is compatible.
Technical specification may look like this:
DEVICES that can be connected
1. Traditional IP cameras, NVRs and analog (CCTV) cameras connected through DVR or video servers (encoders)
Check out complete device compatibility list to see brands that are supported and were connected to Angelcam successfully.
! For non-tech customers - we strongly recommend you to connect your cameras using our own HW - AngelBox. It makes the connection way easier and secure, without a need of port-forwarding or having a static public IP address. Developers, router & NVR producers can compile our open-sourced camera auto-discovery and cloud-connecting tool, or run it in Docker, or whatever make sense to them :)
