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!


I installed this app and tried it immeidiately…….failed. I clicked the record button but nothing ever looked like it was recording. No files popped up in the list of recordings and it almost seemed to have a huge lag problem. I'm on a 24" iMac w/ plenty of ram and disk space. Shouldn't be a problem running this program. Wiiiiiiiiiish I could get a refund!


A 7-second recording gobbled 245MB. A 50-second recording clocked in at a whopping 1.2GB! YUMPIN YIMMINY!!
And there is no Help, User Manual, documentation of any kind, nor a Contact link to this developer. The "support" links merely take you to the developer's website, and no contact opportunities there, either!
Apple's Photo Booth is the recording solution you seek!
