Free IP Camera Monitoring for 3D printer with old webcam usb in 5min

My Wanhao Duplicator 6 is near my PC (at 2 meters). I have thinked to use my old USB webcam like an IP CAM (Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 since 2002).  It’s very easy to do in 5 min.

The specs of this usb webcam are “honorable” for this job : Resolution 1.3Megapixels / 1280*960

QUICK STEPS :

  • Find a long usb cable (2m for me)
  • Donwload  Yawcam at http://www.yawcam.com/
  • Install it on Windows
  • Configure Yawcam in few steps.
  • Download IP Cam Viewer ans configure it

On mobile :

Download Ip Cam Viewer Lite on Android Phone

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rcreations.ipcamviewer&hl=fr

or

Download Ip Cam Viewer Lite on iPhone

https://itunes.apple.com/fr/app/ip-cam-viewer-lite/id397322405?mt=8

In IP Cam Viewer Lite select profil “Yawcam” add your IP and port

I have selected IP CAM Viewer because is on Appstore and Playstore. You can choose other app

Tip : if videostream is poor, use http with pictures

CONS :

  • it requires a computer on (not a problem for me)
  • No HD with very old webcam ( You can control if it prints but not the details)
