Microphone

Access to the microphone would be very nice. Then you can use your android phone as a security gadget. As Webcam and with sound record to hear what is going in in your house.

Hi, Thanks for your idea!
We are still evaluating the possibility of it. Please kindly stay tuned.
Would you mind telling us more information about usage scenario in your mind so that we can be more specifically about this feature? For example, why do you want this feature under which circumstance? THX!Image

I'd suggest to implement a video/audio stream instead of a stream of single jpeg images. I imagine we would be able to select if we wanted to see/hear only the video, only the audio, or both combined in the web interface. Replacing single jpegs by a video stream would also probably reduce the required bandwith, since video codes are typically able to compress the data more efficently then algorithms that use a single picture as source.

Anyways, adding audio from the mic seems like a good idea for the following scenarios:
  • baby monitor (if you've fallen asleep there's no use of pictures, you need to HEAR the baby to wake up)
  • device theft (tapping in to the mic makes identifying the thief much more probable)
  • being able to monitor things that are out of your camera view or that are not giving any visual indicators (for example devices that make noises to inform the user, a microwave oven for instance)
  • being able to locate the device when location services (wifi, gps) are deactivated and the device is left in a dark surrounding (bags, pocket, etc)
It's definetely a useful feature that I'd really like to see implemented.
