    I have 2 Macs/displays with built in FaceTime cameras and want to view the cameras from my iPhone when I'm at work. Security etc.

    What set up is best for this?

    Thanks

    I just use LogMeIn and then turn on Photobooth. Works pretty well over a stable 3G connection. Used it to check up on our new puppy.

    Thanks guys

    Aren't there some native iPhone apps that work with simply turning on the Mac's FaceTime camera or some other Mac app?

    Just FaceTime the mac. If u can't set auto answer (never looked in the settings) u could write something to answer

    Their's nothing in the settings to auto answer, perhaps writing something in Automator would work.

    I was looking for something similar and found this. You can do it manually through terminal and someone even made an "app"

    A phone number example:
    defaults write com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvites -bool YES
    defaults write com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvitesFrom -array-add +15205551212

    An Apple ID (email) example:
    defaults write com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvites -bool YES
    defaults write com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvitesFrom -array-add stevejobs@apple.com

    To remove all people from the auto accept:
    defaults delete com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvites
    defaults delete com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvitesFrom
