Use an iSight-equipped Mac as a surveillance tool

Not 100% certain this will work for you but you might want to look into a third party web cam that has no such light/s. I own multiple web cams which one can address through preferences in terms of using one at a time or multiple cams through multiple apps.



On the other hand, if you'd rather not spend the extra money on web cams then consider Mac OS X Terminal Command lines in order to address turning off the little green light. I personally use such commands very sparingly since they must be typed precisely (if not exactly) in order function properly. Here's a useful website if you'd like more info on learning to write terminal commands:
