About a month ago I wanted to use my **IP cameras** that had been sitting around unplugged for almost a year. The reason they were left unused? The bundled software is a total **nightmare to use**. I just wanted a **simple app** that could connect my cameras and save the stream to local disk. One that would work on my OS X iMac.
I rolled up my sleeves and started researching how all these cameras work and how I could tap into them. Long story short: I built an app that lets you **connect your IP cameras** **without having to know their IP address** and all that.
Halfway through making this thing I started thinking maybe others have the same problem as me? So what the heck, I put together a beta website with some info on how to download and test the application. I am using Google analytics to track user traffic and see what kind of interest there is. I also read I should do an ad-campaign specifically targeted to the users who might be interested in such a product.
**What should I do now?**
PS: Anyone else who has shared the same frustrations as me with these blasted IP cameras… please give my beta app a spin! It’s totally free and will be sending out lifetime licenses if/when I take this to the next level.
