Eye4 IP camera software on Peppermint
« on: November 12, 2019, 04:24:27 am »
Hi folks,
I'm new to the Peppermint Community and have been using and getting familiar with the OS for the last couple of weeks.
So far I've been pleased using it as a secondary option.

I wanted to use this machine where I have Peppermint installed to not only but also use a software called "Eye4" I'ts a popular and fairly user friendly program that allows me to control several of my home and office security IP cameras and also record every camera to a local hard drive. I've been using it in windows and android but haven't been able to successfully find a solution to run it on Peppermint.

If someone out there knows how to make this work I would appreciate it.
Otherwise I'm also open to try other apps other than "Eye4", as long as they work on Peppermint.

Thanks in advance.

That ZoneMinder looks pretty cool .. might take a look at that myself (along with Windows & Linux versions, it also has Android / iOS mobile apps) :)
