Use an iSight-equipped Mac as a surveillance tool
Authored by: clamstrip on Apr 20, '06 12:46:03PM

I remember back when I used a connectix serial camera there was some shareware that monitored the image, and only started recording when it detected motion, or a change in the background sound level. This is the kind of thing to use for surveillance.

If you're thinking of Digital Radar, it was a Connectix product, not shareware. Great little product too... I'm not sure if there's anything like it any more for the Mac. It's a pity that Logitech seems to have killed it after buying the camera business from Connectix.

EvoCam supports capturing only when it detects motion.

It also lets you specify areas of motion to exclude, like excluding a fan from triggering the capture, but including the front door.

It's quite useful :-)
