WebCam Monitor is a camera surveillance system. The application allows you to connect up to four webcams and monitor them in real time. The areas covered by each of the cameras can be adjusted by tilting, panning and zooming. Likewise, monitoring can be done on regular intervals or when the motion or sound detected exceeds the threshold value previously set by the user.

The application is quite easy to use. In this respect, there are wizards to help you configure new cameras. Besides, a side panel guarantees quick access to the most frequently used parameters. The workflow consists of establishing a group of conditions that trigger specific actions. Thus, in addition to specifying sound and motion levels, you can also mark some specific camera regions in which movement is simply ignored. Thus, when motion is detected, the application can take a series of snapshots, send email notifications, upload media files to an FTP server, launch an audio alarm or run a specified program. Moreover, all these activity traces are conveniently marked with time stamps, which favor its later review and analysis. Another possible use of the application is to stream video over an IP address, which can be viewed even in a web browser or recorded by other applications that support remote IP cameras.

The bottom line is that WebCam Monitor can effectively serve as a video surveillance tool. However, it has some limitations related to the number of cameras it can support simultaneously. Moreover, it seems that the output video format cannot be customized, and MP4 is used by default. As there are many similar applications out there, you’d better try some of them before you actually decide which one to purchase.

1. Motion sensitivity scale is inefficient 2. Email parameters has no video upload 3. The only other option for automatic video upload is an FTP server and that takes around 2.5 min. to reach it, because the timing options for the motion detection recording is too limited in the lower levels... plus there is the cost of a monthly subscription fee for the FTP server account.
