Insteon Camera Audio

I have succeeded in getting audio from my Insteon camera via MobiLinc. Smarthome's advertisement indicates that there is a speaker in the device. Does MobiLinc support use of this feature? If so, how do I set it up?

Hi smokegrub,

MobiLinc does not support audio from the mobile device to the camera. At least not yet. This is something we are interested in adding, but do not have a timeframe for release.

Currently MobiLinc can play what the camera "hears".

That will be a wonderfully useful addition. Thanks for the feedback.

When I tried to set up audio on my Mac using the Smarthome software I was directed to download an app, Videolan, to support that feature. After hours of trying I finally called Smarthome and they informed me that the plug-in did not work on either Safari or Firefox on Macs running the current OS. Needless to say, I was not very happy with this feedback. In my opinion this is a niche that could be a further marketing asset for MobiLinc. If you add speaker capability to your software, you will be the only option for those seeking this feature.
