Questions

How can I make ActiveHome Pro work like a webcam?

How can I store an archive of images away from my main ActiveHome Pro computer?

Answer

You can use the FTP Media command to tell MyHouse Online to upload pictures to your server. This feature is useful for making ActiveHome Pro work like a webcam, or to store an archive of images away from your main ActiveHome Pro computer.

To add this command to a macro, drag the FTP Media command from the Video Functions list into your macro. When you drop the command in, you will be prompted to enter FTP information. You will need to already have your FTP information available.
