Can an old iPhone (1st gen) be repurposed as a web-based camera?

Asked by cwicseolfor (83points) December 26th, 2009

I have a 1st gen iPhone that I no longer use. I’d like to use it as a stationary camera, pointed at my plants at home so I (or my friends) can access the camera’s feed via a web browser. Does anyone know how I might go about setting this up?

The camera has no GSM access anymore, but it does have WiFi.

according to this link you can download either iCam or AirCam to access your camera’s live feed. Don’t know much about them or the price of the apps, so can’t help much beyond the app names, sorry!

Close… they give me pretty much the opposite of what i’m looking for (those apps let you watch a computer’s webcam on the iPhone. I want the iPhone’s camera to be visible on a computer in another state). Thanks, though.

You might want to check out Qik then. Also don’t know much about it, but I think it’s closer to what you were looking for.
