Helped me catch my naughty cat


When I got a second cat, he wasn’t getting along very well with my first cat. One of them was peeing on my bed routinely while I wasn’t watching. I set this app running on my dresser and went to work for a few hours. When I came home the app had successfully recorded which cat was peeing on my bed. Totally worth $3 to find that out.

The motion sensitivity works very well, I think. It only records when something is happening, and it does record sound too. You can also adjust the video quality so that if you have to take hours of recordings at once, you won’t fill up your whole drive. The videos are “finished” and saved frequently so you don’t risk the app crashing and losing everything.



Used this today worked really well the motion detection works well as well as the sound activation! As far as the concern of how much space the vids take up they are very simple to delete and loaded very quickly. Really happy with this works better than any other camera surveillance software. Would buy again only downfall to the product is the green LED comes on when the program is in use to solve that problem I just put a dot of black washable marker on top of it to dim it, wipes right off after your done using it! Overall bravo, great job!

A good start.


This progam is pretty easy to use, but offers limited functionality. There are also some things I don't like:

- The start and stop button don't go "on", it is hard to tell whether it is recording or not at first.
- After leaving the house for 20 minutes, my dog walked around a little bit and left me with 4gb worth of recording. It is crazy. Even just 10 seconds of recording is 20mb.
- No settings to change quality or compression codes.
- After you click the red close button, the program is still on. The webcam light is on and the CPU usage is elevated. You need to command-q it to quit it.
- After you are done, you are left with for example 40 little movie files of 5 or 10 seconds that you have to click one by one. It would be nice to see this changed to one file, maybe with time stamps in them.

Either way, it sorta works, it's 3 dollars (alternatives are 30 dollars, and not available in mac store yet) so I don't regret buying it. But I would love to see this thing get updated.
