Broadcasting multiple cams over WAN?

So I'm setting up a mini security system using PiCams (like so: http://techspect.co.uk/2013/how-to-rasp ... er-stream/) and I was wondering if there is a way to set them all up to run on a WAN. I know you can forward port 8081 for a single cam, but how could you do many is my question

Re: Worldwide Webcam Server

You've double checked that the port is being forwarded directly to the pi in your router settings?

And you're using your WAN IP and not your regular IP (192.168.1.1)?

If those are both yes, and it's working at home, then IDK what to tell you...

I'm looking for some way to do a live video feed over the internet (with no software charges) so that people anywhere can watch something like a bird incubator (as the chicks hatch). However, here are my questions: 1 Is there a similar program that doesn't record or watch for motion, just a live fee...

Re: Where are good RF transmitters and receivers?

You might want to look at some of the bluetooth proximity projects, possibly not the range you need though. No, bluetooth doesn't have the range nor does it go through walls well. I already considered that. Depending on number of doors , amount of people in the house etc. an alternative approach co...

Re: Where are good RF transmitters and receivers?

Also is higher frequency better for wall penetration or lower? I see some 315Mhz and 433Mhz on Amazon for 5 bucks.

Where are good RF transmitters and receivers?

I'm trying to design an alert system for a handicapped child that lives nearby me where the system will send an alert via SMS to their mother when the child gets too far from the house, and another when they re-enter the area. I assume and RF signal would be the best for that. My question is: Where ...

And if possible do the same with the wifi in the tv's in my house. I have a Pi with USB WiFi, and an e...

IR TV remote sensor

Hey, I'm looking for a way to use a universal tv remote on a RasPI to control OpenELEC. I'm not very good at programming, so if any is required a step by step would be nice. Any help?

Thanks in advance.
