Whether you want to observe wildlife in your garden or protect your property turn your iPhone into a motion detecting video camera with live feed to your desktop.

Motion Detector Cam uses a complex mathematical algorithm to spot movement and record both an HD video* and lo-res photo. To use simply start the app and place the device in a stationary position.

You can now access a live camera feed from your desktop using an internet browser.

Please note the device must be still to detect motion and record a video. To stop detecting motion or recording a video simply pick up the device.

We recommend plugging your device into a power source for prolonged use.

Ratings and Reviews


Monto Bon

It crashes often such that it only records a few clips and then nothing...which makes it worthless.

When you turn your brightness down to low and then goto into the app's admin screen, it goes back to full brightness when exiting the admin screen. You just need to reset it but that's annoying.

The interface for accessing over a browser is okay although it would be better if you could view the feed while it records. If it is recording, it will not show anything.

Works Great


Well done app, I wish it could run without having to disable my auto lock screen, but all things considered it's worth the price.

Isn't saving


The record function seems to be turning on, but it doesn't seem to be saving the videos. It's a simple app, which is good, but it has to save the video before it gets a full rating...two stars for the idea and if it's fixed it could possibly be 4-5 stars for the simplicity, price, and function.
