    HI Matthew,

    We didn't have an app to convert any mobile device into a camera, but there are a few available in the Play Store. 
    Although it has been a few years ago, the one I have experience with is IP-Webcam Pro. 

    Please test this option to confirm if this matches your expectations.

    Hi Lazer,

    I think that would is a misunderstanding, as far as I know, we never had this option. But good news. That is something we are working on. Unfortunately, I don't know when it would be released at this stage. We even made a preview video about it.

    Just to add another app: RTSP Camera Server for android will create a stream that NX will pickup.
    I always use a VPN connection to my video server networks so it's a 2-step process on my phone - connect VPN and then bring up the RTSP app.

    Works well for me.
