Q: Can I communicate with the camera with Grandpa without turning on the computer?
A: You can also communicate with the camera easily. Via the web browser this would e.g. in Internet Explorer or Firefox possible if you use the control (ActiveX) what you can set in the camera. By default, Flash is used, it could only hear the sound.
Otherwise, there is also our free smart phone app, so you can talk and listen. The function is similar to a Walki-Talki, you can either speak or listen, because both together would lead to feedback. It is therefore necessary to separately activate the microphone or the speaker to communicate via the camera. However, using the web browser with ActiveX, you can enable both to communicate correctly.
