Use an iSight-equipped Mac as a surveillance tool
Authored by: FrankPtown on Apr 20, '06 03:01:21PM

EvoCam can be set up to do time lapse movies which will do the trick without using excessive disc space. Most importantly, though is it's ability to use motion detection as a trigger. The latest version can also do motion detection with a buffer. In other words, it records all the time but keeps only the last 15 seconds. When motion is detected it saves the buffer so you won't lose any footage of the disturbance. This way you can have a regular speed movie (not time-lapse) and not use a lot of disc space.
