Motion detection and webcam monitoring. Video surveillance with multiple IP cameras and video capture devices. For each video frame, if motion is detected, the Alarm event occurs, that returns a global motion ratio, depending of the number of cells in which motion has been detected, and the level of motion in each cell.

A sensitivity grid is applied on video frames. You can adjust the sensitivity of the detection, and mask out areas of the camera view to avoid false alarms. When the camera captures video frames in a dark environment, it is possible that the electrical background noise of the CCD video cell creates fake motion detection events. It is possible to reduce the sensitivity of to the video noise by enabling the Reduce Video Noise option.

When an alarm condition is detected, the program can sound an audible alarm, or send you an email with a photo. Automatically capture photos, or record video in compressed files. Webcam Motion Detector includes an advanced player that allows to play video clips, capture video frames and perform frame overlay. Each camera has its own individual monitoring and recording settings. All settings, such as alerts, photos, and video recordings can be turned on and off using the built-in scheduler.

REVIEW.
This one looks like a great program – installed “setup” as admin. but did not launch, then I ran the “activate” file.

It installed perfectly in Win7 64bit.

I don’t know how anyone could “Thumb Down” this one already. It has a very functional and well arranged “Ribbon” interface with plenty of tools and options. Very modern and up-to-date, and a GREAT example of why the ribbon is better than the old [File][Edit][View][Help] tabbing system of other programs.

Since the software is something that really needs to be tested over time, it’s very hard to tell if it all works. It looks like better software than most of the surveilance software out there, and and most of those programs are MUCH MORE than $50.

I will be testing the ability to crop the sensitivity of the camera view down to my doorway on a busy street. I want to capture all the way to the street, but only activate the camera after someone comes near the door. This software claims to do just that!

- expect RAM usage to spike significantly while capturing.

One of the best Giveaways we’ve seen lately, especially if you need something like this.

Ah heck, I was after exactly this sort of software, and now it's back to it's usual price of £49.95.

This was a one-day offer, just for November 30th.

You could try iSpy (partially free) or HomeCamera (free during Beta)
