It’s not bad to spy from time to time your home and see if everything awkward is going on. OS X Daily has provided the technique for using a Mac as a security camera and watching live video straight from the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac. The procedures are quite simple so you’ll be able of checking your home or office in a blink of an eye.
You first need to have the FaceTime app installed on your Mac from home or office. It comes along with Lion or later but if you possess previous versions of Mac, download it from Mac App Store. Second, be sure you have created a valid Apple ID for using it as FaceTime Login and the most important thing, have another Apple device at hand.
- Launch Terminal found in /Applications/Utilities/ and enter the following command to automatically accept incoming FaceTime calls: defaults write com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvites -bool YES
- Still in Terminal, enter the next command, changing the email address on the end with the Apple ID you wish to automatically accept a video connection from: defaults write com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvitesFrom -array-add firstname.lastname@example.org
After establishing the procedures, take your iPhone or other iOS device and initiate a FaceTime call with the Mac’s Apple ID from home or from the office. In the very instant your Mac automatically accepts the call and follow what’s going on in the room for as long as you want.
