    Q&A: Tips from our Support Forum
    1. WebCam Monitor: Quickly switching camera views
      Q. Hello,
        I am new to WebCam Monitor and downloaded version 3.3 of the software to evaluate. I would like to monitor video from several cameras. Is there a way to manually switch camera views (using one button to quickly navigate)?
        Also, how does one set up to monitor a camera for 30 seconds, then switch to camera #2 and monitor for 30 seconds, then back to 1, etc. etc. When I set up cycling and set 30 seconds for each camera, it always remains on the first camera.


      A. You can switch between cameras by clicking on Switch to Next Device in Device cycle in the Tools Menu. You can also use the shortcut ALT+T+S for convenience.
        The Cycle through Multiple Devices schedule type does exactly what you want. If you add two cameras to the schedule, each running for 30 seconds then WebCam Monitor will switch between them in a cycle.
        Please make sure that you add two different cameras to the cycle.

    Featured Article : View your camera remotely
    You have a camera, you want to do video surveillance of your property, but you want to do it from your office or a comfortable location. You just need four things, a camera, your PC, Webcam Monitor and an Internet connection. The remote monitoring feature in WebCam Monitor is an ideal solution, as it gives you the ability to keep an eye out on things from anywhere in the world. All you need to do is to connect your camera to your PC, start remote monitoring in WebCam Monitor, and stay informed of all activities as and when they happen.
    Using WebCam Monitor, you can remotely view the activity from your camera in three different ways. You can watch a live feed from your webcam, use FTP to view uploaded video recordings and snaps on your website, or receive email with embedded snaps of the activity sent by WebCam monitor.
    Let us look at each of the three different ways to turn your PC and camera into a remote video surveillance system.
