This new feature allows anyone with an account to share their cameras with other account owners and as well to accept shares from other account owners.

Cameras can be shared with or without admin rights. Admin rights can be revoked or reinstated at anytime with a single click.

Security for this feature requires that the recipient also have an account. To accept a share requires the recipient to click an "Accept" button in the share request email sent from the server when the share is created by the camera owner,

Upon acceptance, the new shared camera will show under My Cameras for the recipient. The camera owner and the recipient can remove the share at any time by clicking Unshare. There is no cost to sharing cameras.

Here is a quick how to guide on this feature which should be released within a couple of days.

With camera sharing the recipient does not need to have cameras but could. they can install the mobile app and get mobile push notifications off your camera. In this case need to to deal with the hassle of all those emails. they can monitor cameras in the app or online as if they belonged to them.

Does that make sense ?

Yes, your "friend" needs to have an account.... :D

talk to your "friend". have them register, activate an account... then you can share. I decided to do it this way otherwise we run into the misspelled email address issue. This way you know you got it right because otherwise you get this error message.

Yep, he’s my nephew. Another buddy is on vacation now. Another is hit or miss, but he says he’s going to buy a Lookout like mine. I’m not sure what he’s waiting for, he’s at hunting maniac.

I know this a kind of a old thread. But I have to say after having a friend of mine purchase a few Lookouts and sharing his portal with me this feature is great! In my Ridgetec app, not only does my camera show on the main app page, but his cameras do also. I get push notifications as his cameras are triggered just the same as mine. The ability to scroll thru the multiple pages of his photos on the app is way better that getting a bunch of emails that you look at one and delete. I would recommend anyone who has a Lookout to share their portal with friends vs just getting a email.

If you use your camera in video mode, portal sharing is a must. Its by far the easiest method of sharing videos. No more having to download the video and having to re-send it in a email. Some of my friends have Android phones, I have Apple. Sending videos between the two is useless. Most cell carriers limit data sending to 1mb in size. So any video sent thru a text message between Apple/Android will be so distorted its hardly visible.

I totally agree. I normally discourage the use of email in all aspects to anyone I am supporting on the phone. Email is not a reliable method for "real time notification".
