If you have an old idling Windows Phone device, Win IP Camera turns it into a high-end IP Camera instantly. One would pay over $200 for a high-end IP camera with HD video, WiFi, battery power, internal and external storage, flashlight and double-lens. You can use it to monitor your home, your business, your babies, your pets, etc. just like using a high quality security camera.

Win IP Camera also allows you to broadcast to the world. Since it has turned your Windows Phone into a true IP camera, the video stream can be accessed anywhere in the world (port forwarding setup is required).
