EarthCam (http://www.EarthCam.net) has released the Control Center 7 app for their clients who use the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It’s free at the Apple App Store and allows the user to immediately view and control their public and private video cameras from around the world in real-time over WiFi, 3G and Edge.
For non-EarthCam clients, the app provides an interactive demo of one of their cameras at Ground Zero in New York City. Features include the ability to remotely operate the pan, tilt, zoom controls, access presets and view any archived images from a graphical calendar interface.
Additionally, users are able to utilize the built-in camera on the iPhone to take pictures and videos from project sites and automatically upload them into EarthCam’s easy-to-use online system and share share progress and comments with team members. EarthCam clients can also monitor connection speed, solar power status, battery charge, weather data and view the camera’s position on Google maps. With this app password details are saved securely allowing the camera to be accessed quickly with just one touch, says Brian Cury, founder and CEO of EarthCam.
