AtHome Video Streamer for Mac
The security of your home or work office is critical, especially if you are working with sensitive data that must be protected from prying eyes. Thanks to AtHome Video Streamer you can monitor and surveillance your office and record any unauthorized activity.
AtHome Video Streamer is a versatile and powerful companion application for the mobile app AtHome Camera. By using both applications you can turn your Mac’s FaceTime camera into a surveillance camera and your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android device into a professional security system.
Both Mac and iOS applications are available on iTunes Store and can be installed in a matter of minutes thanks to their small size. There is also an Android Phone and Pad version that can be easily downloaded from the developers download page. The download and installation process of AtHome Video Streamer is pretty straightforward and it requires less than 2 MB from your Mac’ hard disk space.
What is more, the two applications combined can help you remotely control your Mac, put it into sleep mode or wake it up with just a few taps from your iOS or Android device. You can also schedule video recording sessions and take advantage of the motion detection sensors in order to automatically detect and capture the intruder on camera.
Another great feature is the push and email alert notification system designed to send you email alerts or mobile notifications every time the recording process is triggered by a movement. Each time the motion sensor is triggered, a 30 seconds video will be recorded and saved on your Mac.
AtHome Video Streamer features a user-friendly interface from which you can easily select the video source, set the recording folder, view the camera status and configure the Email notification system.
Although the application is smooth-running and easy-to-use there is one problem. The green light next to your Mac’s FaceTime camera is always lit. This might be a huge red flag for every perpetrator that wants to snoop through your files without getting caught.
All in all, if you want a professional surveillance system you might want to keep on searching until the developer fixes the “green light” camera situation. Or you can use it to monitor your pet or any other subject that does not know what the green light means.
