Set up camera to watch pups

Brady's mom convinced me to download the iphone application ICAM. I was always afraid to see what my 3 were doing when I was gone. If they were whining, or having anxiety, it would break my heart! Anyway, I downloaded the application, set up my laptop, and left the house. They were so cute! They were just looking out the window and relaxing. I watched them as I pulled in the driveway. They were just excited I was home. I would recommend this to anyone who is curious.

I'm leaving for Florida tonight, so it will be great to check in on them while I;m there!

Linda, you will be crazier than me with this. I set up the icam yesterday for the first time. We have a few dogs staying with us this week and I wanted to see what everyone was doing while we were gone. Brady just watched out the window the entire time. I was surprised that they didn't really sleep, but just watched for us. I am hooked now.

Linda, have a great trip!!!

I don't know if there is anything like it for the droid. The one we are using is called icam. You just download the app ($4.99) on the iphone and then download the software on your computer. It takes a minute and you are good to go. You can even record too I would imagine it would work on the ipod touch too, but you could only use it when you were hooked up to the internet.

Trudy, I'm also have a Mac and iPodTouch and am waiting for the iphone with Verizon! In fact, in the Verizon store today the latest rumor was that maybe in Feb? (Fingers crossed,) wouldn't that be great? This app sounds so cool!

That does sound incredible. Do you just leave the computer on all the time?

Linda, have a great trip and have fun spying. It is so much better, knowing they're fine.

Yes, I leave my laptop plugged in and on all day. I have it set up so it doesn't sleep. The screen is set up to turn off though. It's been so much fun watching them. They pretty much do the same thing they do when I'm busy doing stuff at home. They lie down, look up once and awhile, look out the window, bark at the mailman..... I was at the airport watching as my dog sitter arrived yesterday! I called her and said, you are early! We both laughed. You can also set it up to alert you when there is movement. You can set it to be more or less sensitive to motion. It's fun but at the same time a curse. I find myself checking on them a lot! Speaking of the pups......I wonder what they are up to now....
