Have everything in sight during your vacation: with FRITZ!App Cam or an IP camera
Summer time is vacation time: Relax at the beaches of the world, sunbathe and leave your daily routine behind. But wait! Is everything all right at home? Are the doors and windows closed? With the FRITZ!App Cam or an IP camera you have everything in sight at any time and can focus on your relaxation.
Mobile access thanks to smartphone and tablet
The best way to check, if everything is fine at home is by using an IP camera. Depending on your model, simply connect it to your FRITZ!Box via cable or wireless connection. Place the recording device on the favored position before leaving on your vacation and configure the service on your smartphone or tablet. At your holiday location you only need an Internet connection, like for instance the WiFi access often provided by hotels, to have a quick check on the situation at home.
An alternative for free: FRITZ!App Cam
Yet, there is an even easier way to have a reassuring look around: with the FRITZ!App Cam. Through the app every Android smartphone and tablet can be turned into a webcam. You can watch the result live in your browser. You can establish the connection either from outside over the Internet or from within your home network. Plus: A secure access via MyFRITZ! is possible.
Just use a smartphone or tablet that you don't need while you're away and leave it at home. Other than that, this option is free of charge. Last but not least: Don't forget to connect your smartphone or tablet to a power supply unit in order to enjoy this function even during longer vacations.
