I've got a question regarding video monitoring via webcams.
I want to get a (outside) setup, where I can install web cams (or something of the like)
and anytime there is motion detected, play a alarm/audio file.
Does anyone have any recommended approaches to this?
well if its outside webcams arent weatherproof and arent good in poor light
i started with cheap cameras and immediately regretted it--its no good if you want video evidence of something
and the footage is too poor to recognise any one
what sort of budget do you have?
and how many cameras do you want to run
there are many softwares to do what you want--i have tried about 20 different ones and this one wins hands down--its got great options--you can set different profiles for different times of days or different days ie weekends
you can adjust the sensitivity of motion detection--block out areas you dont want detected ie if a tree is moving in the wind etc
add your own text to each camera and loads more--play alarm when motion detected--popup window when motion detected
