Hey All,

I'm hoping the wide world of ATS has some apple devs or gurus out there.

I've tried googling this but there's so much crap out there it hurts my head.

What I want to know is,

Is there an app i can put on my phone that will enable me to remote control it. IE VNC as suggested.
Add to this, will this app allow me to have the phone in standbye/off mode, and when i try to connect to it , it turns on?


is there something out there in apple world that will schedule a phone to turn on at a certain of the day, take a photo, email the photo, then turn off again.

I'm trying to make a camera box in a bird house. That is facing a construction site.
Id like a photo every day for 2 yrs.
Because its off site and away from power it needs to be self sufficient (im thinking solar panels)

Why would you use an iPhone to do this?

Well, I'm not to phased on if its an iphone, galaxy or what ever.

I figured Iphone was more universal and I had a better chanec of finding a cheap iphone on ebay, also more chance of an app being written for my specifics.

what would you use instead?

Sounds like a job for the Nokia N900(the Swiss Army knife of smart-mobies

Most android fones running a remote webcam app should do the trick...

No, see it needs to be self sufficient.

Its going to be remote, so no one will be there to take the picture.

It needs to do this process for 2yrs with as little human interaction as possible.

I was hoping to birdbox a iphone, setup the solar chargers on the room, setup a remote app allowing me to log into the phone from my laptop, take a photo, email it, then log off until tomorrow.
simple datasim prepaid....

get it ?

Hve you tried googling 'hunting camera' ?

You can set them to take a pic at certain times of the day, they are self sufficient , weather proof and a lot cheaper than an iphone.
