Live demos & peregrine news

Did you know we have a page available on our website where you can view livestream videos of several locations? View them all here: 'Live Demo's'. Convince yourself of the sharp video feed.

Two of the livestream locations are bird breeding boxes for peregrine falcons. To overview the breeding process in these boxes, Foscam made cameras availabe so people can monitor the birds from laying the eggs to the flying out of the youngsters.

One camera (Foscam FI9961EP) is placed in a breeding box on the south tower of the Catharinakerk in Eindhoven. The other camera (Foscam D2EP) is mounted in a breeding box on a churchtower in Liempde.

The first eggs have been layed and we already see a peregrine falcon brooding in Liempde. We don't know if this is also going to happen in Eindhoven, but we do hope so. The past few years several young peregrine falcons have grown up in these bird breeding boxes and have flown out. We are counting on a succesful sequel.


Firmware update R4M, G4(E)P & C2M

Recently Foscam released new firmware for the 4MP cameras G4P, G4EP and R4M. In this firmware (2.x.2.45, releasedate 24-02-2020) we added the dynamic rich media function, shortened the P2P connection time and fixed some bugs. The same improvements apply to the Foscam C2M (firmware 2.x.2.18, releasedate 24-02-2020).

Google Assistant support at Foscam

In the past few months, Foscam has added several new features on the security cameras. These features are free of charge and are easy to use (they work through Foscam Cloud).

Besides Amazon Alexa we now also support Google Assistant. With a simple voice command you can view live images of your camera on your smart home screen. Very handy when someone rings the doorbell or if you hear something and you want to take a peak without any physical action.

Read more about these great new features on our webpages Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Here you can also find the supported models.

And don't forget our other feature AI Human Detection. With this feature the camera can detect human activities, eliminating 'false alarms' triggered by flying insects, moving pets or other objects (f.e. floating balloons), and push notifications to your devices when there might be a danger detected.

Firmware update
On 2 January 2020 Foscam released new firmware for the 2MP cameras D2EP, R2M, FI9912P and FI9912EP. In this firmware (2.x.2.48) we added the dynamic rich media function, shortened the P2P connection time and fixed some bugs. The firmware can be found om our downloads page. You can also install the firmware in the app.

Foscam DDNS service discontinued from 31 December 2019

Due to DDNS remote access technology’s lower security status, Foscam has to close DDNS application entry. Cameras will not support using Foscam dynamic domain name (DDNS) to remote access from 31st December 2019. Customers who do not use Foscam DDNS will not be affected.

Foscam focuses on security products, security is the most important. DDNS remote access technology has a lower security level than P2P remote access technology. Therefore, DDNS remote access technology does not meet Foscam's requirements of security in future developments.

If you still use Foscam DDNS, please be sure to read the instructions to adjust your settings (if applicable).

The instructions are in Dutch. If you have any trouble reading them, please contact us at support team for translation or other questions about this subject.
