Our goal is to let you connect any device, no matter what brand and type.
1. Almost any video-capable device
Some of our advanced and creative users have connected also:
Server streaming RTSP video, including VLC player
If you don't have Angelcam Powered or Angelcam-ready device, we strongly encourage you to connect your cameras using AngelBox. It makes the connection easy, secure, and reliable. With AngelBox, there is no need for port-forwarding or having a static public IP address.
For professionals: If a device supports RTSP and h.264, or MJPEG at least, it can be connected. While we don't recommend it, you can use port-forwarding as well.
For developers and manufacturers: you can also compile or integrate our open-sourced camera auto-discovery and cloud-connecting tool Angelcam Connector, and run it on RPi or other ARMs, OpenWRT, or certain Ubiquiti routers, or even run it in Docker :)
2. Sensors and alarm-panels
There are three options for how to get events to Angelcam:
via e-mail - if your sensor or alarm panel can send alerts via e-mail, it can be connected
via IFTTT - if your device can send alerts via IFTTT, it can be connected
developers and advanced users can use API as well
Events sent to Angelcam allow you to:
easily navigate in recorded video
get notification on your mobile phone (or via e-mail, Slack, Pagerduty, ...) to verify ongoing incidents
3. Real-time security devices
One of the best ways to actively deter a trespasser is to simply speak to the person via the audio speaker. You can deter 98% of trespassers using this method. For the rest 2%, there is a fog cannon
or pick the right fog cannon for you
