Security Eye Description
Whether you hired a new babysitter for your toddler, you got a new pet or perhaps have solid reasons to keep a close eye on the activity that happens in your home when you are away, installing security cameras is one option worth exploring.
Security Eye is a handy piece of software that allows you to configure the IP cameras you installed around the house so that they capture any activity you are interested in learning more about.
It can send you alerts on the phone or via email
Following a quick and uneventful setup, you are welcomed by a clean and intuitive interface that is unlikely to give you any troubles regardless of your experience with similar apps. As you probably hinted, first you need to connect the cameras and configure them so that they capture the footage you prefer.
Adding a new camera can be done manually by specifying a few details, such as the IP address, port, brand, model and authentication if necessary. Alternatively, you can scan and detect the camera on the local network.
Depending on what you are monitoring, the tool can be configured to send you alerts directly on your mobile phone or email. To take advantage of this feature, you need to enter several details about your email or phone, such as the username, API key, SMTP host, so on and so forth.
It allows you to configure motion detection
The trump card of the program stems from the fact that it enables you to set the sensitivity for motion detection, an option that can help you configure the camera for a wide variety of purposes, from detecting intruders to watching your pet while it is alone at home.
At the same time, you can specify the next step the camera should take when detecting motion. Therefore, you can set it to record the footage or take snapshots at regular intervals. However, you should keep in mind that the videos are saved in an AVI or MPEG-4 format, whereas the screenshots are take in a JPEG file format.
A tool that can help you take your home security one step further
In the eventuality that you are looking for a solution that can grant you more control over the surveillance cameras you have in your home or office, Security Eye might come in handy.
