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:

  • GoPro camera

  • Drone

  • 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:

  1. via e-mail - if your sensor or alarm panel can send alerts via e-mail, it can be connected

  2. via IFTTT - if your device can send alerts via IFTTT, it can be connected

  3. developers and advanced users can use API as well

Events sent to Angelcam allow you to:

  • trigger event recording

  • easily navigate in recorded video

  • get notification on your mobile phone (or via e-mail, Slack, Pagerduty, ...) to verify ongoing incidents

  • and more

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
