It really is possible to see your own house/apartment live on the Internet, and many people are asking, how can I see my house live?. Most people think of using Google Earth or Google Street-View, which is 'not' live although you 'may' have been captured live - (a snapshot in-time), when Google cars were driving around taking the latest pictures.

It's the multitude of live streaming feeds, and CCTV camera's on our plane that makes it possible to see your house streaming live and if you do your research very carefully, you may find it. Keep reading and I'll show you how it's possible to find live streaming images over-looking your home - streaming live on the Internet for the World to see - even see "live feeds" of people "inside" their homes.

Big Brother is always watching - getting bigger & smarter

The UK has a record amount of CCTV cameras. It's estimated that on an average journey, Londoners are captured on camera at least 400 times a day and the numbers increasing daily. Especially in this day-and-age of not just crime, but terrorism. Everyone's becoming more security conscious, which means more cameras popping up. This increases the chance to find a camera feed that over-looks your home or work. Where you shop. While you're at the gym, relaxing on the beach, or even having a haircut, live camera feeds are absolutely everywhere, and some feeds have audio capabilities, so be careful what you say and do in public.

Turn your device into a CCTV system

The more locations you can find online, the more chance you have to find your home, or friends online and live 24/7 turning your PC into an eye to the entire World.

Anyone who tells me they don't like all the cameras they see because of the "intrusion" upon their "civil liberties", I make it worse for them by saying, "If that's the case, it's the cameras you 'can't see' you should be worrying about". For me, I love them....only if I've access to them.

I'm always on the look-out for newer, and nearer cam feeds to my location. These could be the thousands of London traffic-cam feeds which are online and available in many countries. Or security cams from popular nearby buildings such as clubs, pubs, gyms, sports centres, hotels and shops who could be streaming their images online for anyone to view, just like this cam of the famous Abbey Road.

You don't have to rely on traffic cameras

Business owners around the world live stream their workplace online. Landlords keeping an eye on their employers and property, broadcasting them live giving us, the public the opportunity to be big brother and observe. Many of these cams are available to view online. Someone in your street will possibly have a security cam that's not always visible which keeps an eye on 'their' property, garden or garage, yet overlooks 'your home' and streaming live on the Internet. Even it's not streaming live, but a private cam, someone's viewing it... watching you!

I hit the jackpot after finding my previous property was available to view online!

Luckily, my apartment is 'not' in view, although my neighbours is, but when the camera pans, then yes, mines in view. This is the actual live cam feed. There are a number of other camera angles and locations available in the same vicinity which all helps - always useful to spy on people, to see how busy my high street is, or if I hear emergency sirens etc.

Where I live now, the nearest available feed I found is a traffic cam about forty feet away. I'll settle for that. If my road was straight instead of curved, my property would be in the picture. Perfect for security purposes.

View people live - all over the World - without leaving your home

Live camera feeds are literally everywhere, millions of them, and over-looking private properties. From India to Jamaica, from the South Pole to the North, the seven wonders of the world. Including wedding chapels and international space station webcams.

These cams also gives us an opportunity to view live feeds of any animals and any insect from around the World. View wildlife. Shark cams. Watch and play with cats and dogs, kittens and puppies. Any and everything you can imagine is streaming live. Who knows what you'll stumble upon.

Find security cams of customers eating in a Tokyo restaurant, people swimming.or bodybuilding on a Miami Beach, having a hair-cut or praying at Church. The variety of webcam feeds, and multiple locations is unbelievable. Not everyone in all these live feeds are aware they are being watched online.

Even your webcam is capable of broadcasting live feeds to millions of people around the world. Dozens of websites offer you to stream live feeds of anything, anyone, or any location you like. In addition, it's the cheapest (free), and easiest way to set-up a home or work surveillance.

How can I find live cams of my home?

Now you have an idea of how things work, just type the words of your choice. Use keywords such as the name of a street, road, city, business or location you're interested in, and adding the following combination of keywords such as; Streaming. Live Webcam. Live Cams. Live Feeds. Surveillance. Live IP video cameras, and IP cameras. The keywords I used to find my home were Earls Court Road Live camera.

Ask local businesses and sports centres that are near your home to see if they stream any of their security camera online. They may over-look yours.

Search for any live cam you want and I guarantee you will find them, especially living in London, or the United States which has the 2nd highest rate of CCTV per person. Using your imagination, and the right keywords, you'll find anything, and I mean everything streaming live. One example is the following link which has live webcam feeds overlooking people's homes. Maybe yours!.

Additional Information

You may need to install plug-ins, or specific players to view cams. - For best streaming results, a decent broadband connection and PC specifications help. Having said that, even if you've the best PC specifications in the World, some cams don't stream live as fast as others - some are updated every few seconds, others minutes. Either way, you'll find some great places to visit with a click of a mouse. If you have a problem viewing live feeds, or installing the required plug-ins, try using another browser.

Note: There could be more than one feed to any specific location, so don't settle for your first result. I have two live 'Trafalgar Square' streams, one is better than the other. If its clear, great, if not, search for another live feed (website) for a better quality image, Nearer location, and faster streaming.

In addition, live webcam feeds can come from someone's live Facebook stream, or a vehicle's dashboard cam, and all your activities is not just streaming live, but this live footage is automatically recording, and depending on what's being recoded, could probably end up on YouTube and the news for all the world to see.

I hope you can find your home live on the Internet, and have been inspired, not just to look for live cams of what you want to view, but to prepare you for the fact that you, and your home could be on the Internet, live for all the world to see, 24/7, and the many ways it could be possible.

If I knew who you were, where you live, and your daily activities, I guarantee you, I'll find you online! So the next time you're doing something. When you think you're having that 'private moment' at home, or away, don't forget to smile:) the chances are, you're probably being seen and heard, all live.

    Voted interesting, as I couldn't find the 'scary' or 'concerning' button! lol. It is ridiculous how much of the UK is covered by cameras. While it could be good, it always seems like most of the criminals get away with things. Instead, everyone else has to put up with being on camera all of the time. A good idea that generally seems to fail when needed (low resolution, facing the wrong way, a fake camera etc). Nice article though and off to check your suggestions. You have a new follower.

    Shared, pinned, tweeted, up and interesting.

    Just wondering if this isn't invasion of privacy with all these cameras or one's neighbour's streaming your house live on the net?

    The technology though is amazing.
