How can I remotely control my webcam?

Ray April 6, 2012

Using Team Viewer, I can access my PC Downstairs and control the webcam using the software that came with it. It Seems to me there must be a better way. I use this to monitor the kids while I am working.

Any ideas?

Also, this is a 720p unit and it seems all the viewers are so tiny. Any good recommendations to cut my test and try path would be appreciated.

    Ray, if you simply want to watch through the camera, you could use  TrackerCam ( or another package (search for "webcam streaming server"). 
    If you need more control over the camera, you'll need to explain in more detail what you're after.
