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?


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.


If you entered information in the FTP Settings ( FTP Settings ), you can choose to use the default information. Otherwise, enter the server and access data you use to FTP.

With your FTP information entered, you can configure which images to upload.


FTP the most recent image: this tells the macro to upload the single most recent picture.

FTP multiple images over time: select this option to have MyHouse Online send multiple e-mails with updated pictures. Choose the frequency and duration of these e-mails.
