You're probably wondering why CamHi is important. Why do you think you should give this app a trial? Well asides the most obvious reason, you have the option of adding your cameras to the app. What this means is you can actually add the cameras you wish most to view and remove the less important ones.
There are three ways made available by CamHi app to add a camera to the app. The first option is to Scan the QR Code. It's quite simple. You can add a camera this way by scanning the network camera's QR code.

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App >> . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer.

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type CamHi in the search bar and press Search. Click on CamHiapplication icon. A window of CamHi on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
