A simple and easy-to-use application that helps you use your Mac as a surveillance camera for your office, bedroom or dining room
WatchCam provides the ideal solution for uses who need to keep an eye on their pet, or check who used their computer while they are not in the room. WatchCam comes with an intuitive interface from where you can easily select the video and audio source and enable or disable the motion detector.
What is more, you can adjust the sensitivity of the motion detector and choose a recording session preset from the predefined list. On top of that you can adjust the duration of the recording sessions triggered by a movement. The motion trigger system helps you save large amounts of hard disk space since the app will only start recording when a movement is detected. All recorder videos can be previewed and emailed with just a mouse click from the “Preview” window.
Moreover, the iCloud integration enables WatchCam to automatically upload the recorded videos to iCloud. On top of that, you can install WatchCam on other computers and access the recordings. There is also and iOS version, called WatchCamViewer, which enables you to view the recorded video directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
WatchCam also enables you to connect external cameras and audio devices that can be used as the video and audio source for your home-made surveillance system. You can also use outdoor surveillance cameras to monitor your garage or yard.
All in all, the motion detection features and iCloud synchronization features make WatchCam a handy and practical surveillance app for everyone that needs to track and monitor their pets, children or various rooms of the house.
