Video: Surveillance Camera App, demoed on Nokia E7 and Nokia Lumia 800 (Nokia Push Notification API demo)

| March 13, 2012 | 12 Replies

Here’s a project at Nokia developer showcasing Nokia’s notifications API. Here the Nokia Lumia is used as the camera which sends a push notification to the Nokia E7 when movement is detected. The sensitivity of this movement can be adjusted.

They have a fun little demo of someone protecting some muffins in the fridge. For more real life situations of such an app, you might want to plug in the surveillance device as well as put it in a less visible place.

This Surveillance Camera example app demonstrates the usage of Nokia’s Notifications API. The Notifications API lets you add real-time push notifications to your client applications. This example consists of two mobile apps. The Windows Phone Silverlight application uses Service API to send push notifications to a Qt Quick app in a Symbian device. In this example the Silverlight application is the actual surveillance camera and seeks movements in the camera viewfinder. The Qt application receives alert notifications from the Silverlight application when movement happens. Both applications authenticate into Notifications Service for sending and receiving alert notifications.

This example is hosted in a Nokia Developer Projects:

You can find implementation and porting notes, discover recent revisions, and contribute to the project.
