Recent updates to our sites, server, and services has changed the way EyeSpyFX works.
Most users will have noticed some changes to the look and feel of the site over the last few months. However what you may not have noticed is that we have made a number of changes to the background workings of the site also. One such change is that in order to get a registration code for your software (Version 3.0 and beyond), you are now signing up for an EyeSpyFX Account to get it.
This is because we have streamlined our system, now you need only signup for this one account instead of having to register every software and service individually. Once you are an EyeSpyFX Account holder you will have your own unique registration code for the EyeSpyFX Webcam software, and a unique PIN code with which you can access our different services.
The PIN and RegCode
Your unique PIN will allow you to easily locate your camera on the EyeSpyFX livelist, and makes your EyeSpyFX cameras easily accessible in the “My Cams” section of our Phone-StreamFX mobile phone application. Your unique registration code (along with your email address) will allow you to activate current (Version 3.0 and beyond) and future versions of EyeSpyFX software.
Your new account also means that future software updates and our exciting new services will be immediately accessible to you once they become available. For example CamToMobile and EyeSpyFX will soon be fully integrated with the one PIN for both services.
Phone-StreamFX is a Java Application that allows you to view streaming webcams live on your mobile phone.
The application allows you to view web cameras from both EyeSpyFX.com and CamToMobile.com. As well as offering a list of ‘World Cams’ with a number of interesting views from various locations throughout the world.
On its own Phone-StreamFX is a fun app for your mobile, however when used in tandem with our other services it transforms your phone into a portable security device allowing you to check in at home or work. As well as providing a handy method of just looking in on family or friends when on the road. All you need is your own webcam.
Simply download the EyeSpyFX Webcam software if you have a USB camera, or add your camera’s details to the CamToMobile site if you have a network camera. Once your cam is set up and uploading, you can then use your unique PIN (provided at registration) to access your camera in the ‘My Cams’ section of Phone-StreamFX.
Phone-StreamFX offers the ability to move your camera directly from the phone. It provides pan & tilt for the Logitech Orbit(Sphere) and the Creative Live! Motion USB cameras using the 2, 4, 6, and 8 keys, on your phone’s keypad. You can also control the Sony M3 Network Camera.
The site layout could use a little cleaning up, but the interaction with the Christmas decorations is great, and its for a good cause.
(It helps to raise money for research into an autoimmune disorder called Celiac Disease).
You can only control the lights from 4PM MST (thats 11PM GMT) for 7 hours.
2. Control The Show
Turn off and on 12 different sets of christmas lights on this house from the webpage.
The layout is cleaner but I didn’t have as much fun as I did on Alex’s Controllable Christmas Lights. No inflatable decorations or Christmas music. Still very cool though, and there must have been alot of people viewing the controlling the lights. They were blinking on and off all the time.
You can control the lights from 5PM EST ( thats 10PM GMT) for 8 hours

We are a technology company who specialise in software for mobile phones that enable viewing of live webcams. We are based in Derry, Northern Ireland.
Our aim is to make it easy to broadcast a webcam, and to allow users to view a webcam using a mobile phone. Towards this purpose over the last few years we have streamlined our software, and created content that provide guidance for beginner webcam users.
Content such as our help pages, forum, and our blog.
If you have a question yourself, then feel free to email us at email@example.com, or post a comment on the forum.
Our company’s second goal is to encourage the use of mobile phone technolgy in the webcam experience. To this end we have created and developed our own techniques and products that allow you to view your camera and cameras around the world on your mobile phone.
Looking to get started?
If you want to set up home monitoring using a USB webcam the best place to start is with EyeSpyFX Webcam. This software is free & easy to use, and will have you broadcasting your camera over the internet in minutes.
EyeSpyFX Webcam includes number of interactive features such as:-
- A chat box
- The ability to leave comments
- A snapshot feature
View via mobile.
For those of you wanting to use your mobile phone in the webcam experience. There are two options available to you.
1. Download and use our Phone-StreamFX application, to see a Live Stream from your webcam.
2. Visit www.eyespyfx.mobi from your mobile phone, to view still images via WAP.
In order to view your own webcam from your mobile phone you will need either EyeSpyFX Webcam for USB cameras, or you will need to use our CamToMobile service for Network (IP) Cameras.
After setting up our Lamp Cam it occured to us that there must be other webcams out there that offer the same sort of interactive experience.
So after searching the internet heres a few of the websites we came across.
This site focuses on web connected robots
and has a number of interactive cams.
Only the TeleSkeleton Cam would work for us,
so I’d recommend playing with it.
This webcam has a nice control page that lets you see the truck from above and from the side.
You can drive the truck around as well as scoop up, and dump objects.
3.Drive Me Insane
Drive Me Insane is very similar to our Lamp Cam.
The owner has a number of lamps and lights set up around a room,
which you can switch on and off from the page.
I think the idea is that you can drive the owner insane,
but I have yet to see him/her in the room.
4.Control Our Junk
Control Our Junk has a number of internet controlled toys
that you can play with from the control page.
It takes a few minutes to work out all the controls,
and the interface could be better.
But once you get the hang of it, its quite fun.
A view of the EyeSpyFX office with a unique little feature.
A functional light-on-light-off switch for a lamp in our office.
To view the cam goto the Live List and click on A Lamp Cam.
Move the cam to view the Lamp and press the “Light On” and “Light Off” buttons.
This also means you can view the EyeSpyFX office at night (if you’re so inclined).
