Network camera monitor for front door?

2 replies
Found 23rd Jul 2014
Currently have a Dlink DCS-6113 network cam at my front door.
The camera uploads to my NAS and also to PC in bedroom running Blue iris with dedicated display.

It would be handy to have a small display at front door which displays the feed from camera.

Has anyone seen anything like this? Have thought of using cheap tablet but surely there must be a product designed for this. Having no luck with Google.

Not sure if this is helpful in your particular case but I've found FTPing to sensr.net really useful, you can view the uploaded images and video from anywhere.

You can probably view it on a cheap tablet too, but I'd rather view it locally if you have a blueiris server. Why not a cheap tablet with something like this on it?

I do FTP directly into Nas occasionally if I want to check for new recordings when I'm out and about or away for weekend. Ive got the blueiris app on my ipad and s5. Also use IP cam viewer which is decent.

That link to sensr.net is interesting.

Perhaps a cheap or faulty tablet may be way to go. I just assumed there would be something exclusively for this application which booted straight to live feed and could be wall mounted close to door but guess not.

Thanks
