App Description

With FRITZ!App Cam your Android smartphone (or tablet) at home becomes a webcam. FRITZ!App Cam controls the camera of the smartphone/tablet and provides the recorded images over http or https for viewing in a browser anywhere with an Internet connection. No special plug-ins or software is needed. The app connects to the FRITZ!Box over wireless LAN. Within the home network FRITZ!App Cam presents an IP address and the port, both of which can simply be entered in the address line of the browser. For access over the Internet, upon request FRITZ!App Cam automatically configures MyFRITZ! sharing so that access is as simple as opening the portal or using the direct My-FRITZ!-URL of your FRITZ!Box (for this the FRITZ!Box must be registered with MyFRITZ!). Access to the cameral image can be protected with a password. Multiple viewers can access the images from FRITZ!App Cam at the same time.

Minimum prerequisite:

  • Smartphone or tablet with a camera, Android version 4.0 or higher
  • FRITZ!Box with FRITZ!OS 5.50 or higher
