    I have an iPhone 3GS, 4, and 5, and would like to know if I can leave either of the older ones on with camera application launched while connected to wifi, then stream the video to my iPhone 5 anywhere on the Verizon network. The 3GS and 4 are both jailbroken. Can this be done and how?

    I found the following info but can't seem to locate this app in iTunes


    Security Cam
    Security Cam lets you use the iPhone’s built-in camera to capture video in a security system setup. Security Cam’s features include motion activation, audio triggers and a stealth mode that puts the iPhone’s display to sleep while the app stays running. Security Cam also has a time and date stamp tool and a photo mode for snapping motion-triggered photos. Apart from your iPhone, no additional equipment is required in order to use Security Cam. The app is a 2.7MB download, costs around $10 and requires iOS 4.0 or later.

    well I'm going to try something a little more complicated and not "stand alone"

    I am going to run EpocCam on the iDevices which will stay at home on the wifi network, they will serve as wireless web cams

    I will then use PocketCloud (as I already do) to view the cameras remotely using the Skype camera settings or a similar program

    as far as I can tell, this is the only way to avoid a monthly service fee and I didn't even have to buy any apps!

    It's a shame you left. I just found this thread while searching to so this with an old cracked screen 3G, hoping to set it up as a security camera. You gave me some good ideas here, and I wish you took this further.
