Method 1: Utilizing the Geeni App via an Android Emulator
- Start by downloading and installing an Android emulator on your PC, such as BlueStacks or NoxPlayer.
- Launch the emulator and proceed to download the Geeni app from the Google Play Store.
- Once the app is successfully installed, open it and log in using your Geeni account credentials.
- Your Geeni camera will appear in the app's interface. Simply click on it to access the live camera feed.
Method 2: Employing Third-Party Video Surveillance Software
There are several third-party video surveillance software options available to view Geeni cameras on your PC, including iSpy Connect and TinyCam Monitor Pro.
To use third-party video surveillance software, follow these steps:
- Download and install the preferred software program on your PC.
- Add your Geeni camera to the software program. The procedure may vary depending on the chosen software.
- After successfully adding your camera, you can view the live feed within the software.
Note: Some third-party video surveillance software programs may require a paid subscription for access to advanced features.
Choosing the Right Method:
The choice between the two methods depends on your specific requirements and preferences. If you are comfortable with Android emulators, using the Geeni app on an emulator is a straightforward option. However, if you prefer third-party software for features like motion detection recording or other functionalities, opting for such software is advisable.
- To use third-party video surveillance software, you might need to locate the RTSP stream URL for your Geeni camera. You can find this URL in the Geeni app under Device Settings > RTSP Stream.
- Once you have the RTSP stream URL, add it to your chosen third-party video surveillance software. The process for adding an RTSP stream may differ based on the software you're using.
- In case you encounter any difficulties while attempting to view your Geeni camera on your computer, you can refer to the Geeni support website for further assistance.
