    Hi,

    I am looking for a webcam / IP cam that I can setup at home and monitor via my phone, does anyone know any that have a WM app?
    I see lots with Android, ios apps or web access but nothing with a WM app.

    You could potentially just get a webcam and connect it via USB to a computer running the appropriate recording software. Then you can also have access to that computer via remote software or app using just your phone. Try looking on cnet.com or on camerarunner.com for the best webcams.

    Webcams tend to be cheaper than IP cameras, although they may lack important features like night vision for recording what happens when its completely dark.

    And, yes, if you do this, youll need to keep your computer running 24/7 if you want to record all day, at least.

    Thanks, I have an old webcam in the basement but not looking to have laptop running all day, plus would make it more difficult to position.

    This seems to fit my needs nicely and there is an official app in the store as well as working with the app suggested and some similar apps in the store.
