Connecting your webcam

There are two different ways to connect your webcam or IP camera to

Pull from an URL

By using the pull mode, you need to make your camera available via internet, so that we can pull the current image from a given URL.

You can also copy the image to a server we can reach by URL.

Push via FTP

This is the preferred mode, and more reliable and secure (you don't need to make a connection to your IP camera available).

Most IP cameras have a FTP upload mode (sometimes it is hidden somewhere in motion and security settings). The camera will push the current image to our FTP server at a defined interval.
