    Hi
    Is there anyone that can direct me to an app for my iPad 2 that can look at my security camera on my house while am on holiday?

    I use iCam, but mainly with generic web cameras on PCs. As long as the camera in question is networked, there are a bunch of apps set-up to access them. Also some brands of cameras have their own iOS app set up to work our of the box. A search of the app store will be the best place to start.

    You might also want to check with your security camera service provider. They might be able to advise you on how to set up your camera to view on the Internet.

    You can look for Houston security cameras for help. Visit their details online.

    Need a bit more info.... Is this just a stand alone camera, or is it connected to the internet somehow? If it's not connected to the internet, then no app will work.

    FWIW, I have a DVR that is connected to the net. It has a network cable that plugs in to my router. I can view all my household cameras at any time on my iPad using an app called Microcam.

    I am also using iCam as well. I have a Logitech C920 on my Mini that is in the living room, and it covers the 2 enterences into my house. It has a great app on the Mini that is configurable for sending alerts, capturing based on movement detection (how I have it set) and even setting schedules to capture. I do not know if iCam works with existing security cameras, but I know they have a full list of cameras and systems on their site that they support. Start here, there is plenty of info: SKJM - iCam - Support
