Organize security surveillance and live webcam monitoring, with ContaCam
ContaCam is a free program that detects motion and sends notifications. It is an efficient surveillance system, that includes recording and motion detection, relying on a password protected integrated web server to stream video content.
To setup a camera, decide for the usage (security surveillance, live snapshot webcam or manual records / snapshots), enter a friendly camera name, choose the web appearance & language, configure how long to keep the files on your hard disk. Live webcams can monitor the activity inside your house, your shop and virtually, anywhere you’ve got them. Streaming and recording the content that’s being captured by such devices requires the assistance of software such as ContaCam.
The actions you can perform on live webcam images are numerous, including the possibility to rotate, resize and flip them, as well as to adjust the brightness and the contrast or to apply various effects such as grayscale, negative, sharpen and soften… You can also gather images for a slideshow, or convert them to TIFF or PDF, as well as attach them to an email message. The program is able to monitor a stream for changes (motion detection) and take immediate action (FTP uploads, email notifications or running external programs) once a breach is detected.
