The camera is the issue. I went on my laptop to try and start the video but it won’t let me.

Hi @geirnaert3 and @shae.rose21,

Thank you for reaching out to Alfred!

For the moment, you can only turn smartphones/tablets into Camera devices and monitor from Alfred’s WebViewer:

You can’t use PC webcam as Camera yet.

This is something we might develop in the future. Please continue to support Alfred and stay tuned!

@geirnaert3 you can but not with Alfred at the moment.
PC or Laptop (Windows) as a security camera

Yes, you use webcam on your laptop as a camera to record videos on computer.
And it also helps you record video, audio and webcam at the same time without lag.
