Remote Monitoring with Java

Create a simple remote monitoring app to keep an eye on things while you are away. Capture images based on a predefined schedule, upload to your server and see the shots from anywhere. Of course, there are other benefits that you can get from a remote monitoring tool aside from increasing the security level of your property. The tool can be customized and turned into a guess counter, for instance. With a good web camera, extra features like motion sensitivity can also be added so that the captured image will only be uploaded when a certain threshold is reached. Image encryption is also something that is worth considering in order to prevent unauthorized access over the network.
