iOS Software for your INSTAR IP Camera


To access your IP camera with the iOS App LiveCams we recommend that you first download the newest version from the app store. Use the search word LiveCams to find the app inside the app store.

Add a Camera to Live Cams (iOS)

Launch Live Cams Pro on your iPhone or iPad and wait until the “thumbnail screen” appears. This screen is intended to show one or more cameras at a time with a simple video display and no PTZ controls. It will be empty the first time you run the app. Click the + sign on the bottom tool bar to add a camera.
