  • Imperihome on Kindle Fire?

    Imperihome is very laggy on an original iPad mini. I see that the fire 7" is on sale for $39/ with offers.

    Is anyone running imperihome on that fire tablet? If so, how well is is running?

    Though it doesn't completely answer your question; Imperihome is not available on the Amazon App store, so I believe that the device would have to be rooted to install the playstore and imperihome.

    Maybe others can shed some light on that particular subject?

      I ordered one to try it. I did find imperihome in their app store.

        The Imperihome App is on the Amazon App store, for android, not Kindle. But if you are going to root, then should be all good.

        Edit: If I am missing something, please let me know. I would love to know if you can get this working on a Kindle (in the US) that is not rooted. Cheers!

          My $39 Fire arrived today. You are right, ImperiHome is not in the kindle App Store.

          I was pretty easy to side load the Play Store app and get access to ImperiHome without rooting.

          So far it's working great. The android version has much better features than the IOS version. And it works much better than on my original iPad mini.

            Can you post some directions or a link on how you got the play store loaded?

            Thx.

                Awesome, thank you! I'll give this a try.

                  So far it's really working great on the kindle. I had to cover a hole in the wall from an old stargate keypad so I decided to build a frame for it out of some molding. There was a cat5 in the wall already said I picked a POE USB injector to power it.

                  I have it set to blank the screen and turn on with motion on the camera. It picks me up from across the room. Now I'm thinking of getting the 10" kindle for downstairs.

                    I've had it running on about 6 or 7 Kindles around the house for several months now. It works great.

                      Looks great. I would like to do something similar and just started running ImperiHome over the weekend.

                      I can't get the screen to wake on camera motion. Anything special that you had to change to get it working? I am also having trouble getting the tablet to work with spoken information from my main computer. My tablets are rooted.

                        Got the wake for motion and spoken information features working, I needed the paid app instead of the freebie...

                          This looks really nice.
                          Did you make your own wall mount cover and backplate?
                          I am thinking of using the fire too but not sure how i would permanently and securely wall mount it. I don't like those stick on clips where anyone can walk away with the tablet.

                          cheers.

                            Thanks!

                            I just made the frame out of some scrap molding. I was inspired by this guy, who obviously has better woodworking skills than me.

                            I already had a cat5 in the wall from before so I used this POE injector for power. http://amzn.to/29jBJAw

                            So far so good!

                              Thanks for the detailed explanation and updates.
                              I am not as skilled as you in woodworking, so have to come up with something else, .
                              Kindle+imperihome sure seems the way to go and opens a lot of ideas.

                              cheers.
