Now the camera is partly working..

It's currently only working in my own home network. I'm not able to take photos outside of my own home.. which is kind of the idea.

The solution for this is really simple. I'm using an old android phone with an app called "IP Webcam". This app makes it possible to take photos and record video through a webinterface. Clicking tha "camera" button in my dashboard will take a photo and display it in my "Info-window". This picture is also possible to click to get a bigger version.

The next step is to figure out how to do this from a different location outside of my home. Port forwarding does not work on my crappy router so I need to figure something else out.

I have a similar setup, but am confused how to get feedback to my html page. I have for example a garage door opener I can operate from my android with a sensor that records open or closed in the database. If I tap a switch button, the door (or whatever) operates and the database updates, but I don't know how to get the html page to show the door has opened. I don't use 'on_click' change colour because that doesn't prove the door opened or closed, only that the page received a button click. Any ideas?
