Watching the ROKU cameras from a PC/Mac

Jump to solution

I am trying to figure out a way to monitor my roku cameras from a PC or Mac since there is not a Smart Home app for the mac desktop.   Is there an IP camera monitoring software that could be used?

Thank you in advance for the suggestions

Are there any plans to add an app for Windows PC?  I have an Android device but spend significant time on my PC.  Seems like a PC option would be a given.  Thank you.

@ttill258578, what good would that do?  Some issues don't have a "solution", but they do have an answer.  Marking it as "solved" is just a way of Roku saying this issue is closed - the best answer has been given and no further discussion is necessary or beneficial (although admittedly I'm seeing "Solutions" that aren't the best answer in some cases).  "Solved" is a poor term, but no worse than "Channel" being used for apps.

We need a way to watch these on the PC. 

Can we have a ROKU Smartt Home app for the PC (or mac)?

Would it be possible to use VLC to connect to the camera streams in the meantime?

that doesnt really work as its difficult to install or side load apps onto a virtual droid device and way to cumbersome.

Just hook up a roku streaming stick to a pc monitor then.  Either that or a bluestacks emulator would work just fine as well.
