Video Surveillance software ContaCam is a video surveillance software that can turn your webcam into a motion detection camera with automatic logging and custom alert options. The program can monitor the area within camera view and automatically start recording whenever it detects any motion. The recordings can be saved as AVI or Flash video and optionally uploaded to a FTP server or sent by email. You can also choose to capture still images at regular intervals and create a thumbnail history log you can access remotely via the integrated web server. In addition to video surveillance, Contacam can also be used as DVR for 24 hour recording, scheduled recording or manual on-demand recording. The program supports many advanced configuration options, including customizable (or external) detection zones, snapshot editing, customizable video settings, detection scheduling, network streaming, audio recording, and more. ContaCam supports Webcams, WDM and DV devices as well as IP cameras, and can record from multiple sources at the same time. Can also run as Windows service. Copyright

Near perfect 4 stars by homeflash Dec 17, 2013 (Read all my 15 reviews)
The only thing I think this application needs is to have a way or setting to change data folder. By doing "move the folder" is kind of dumb to my opinion. I could do it from explorer... It would be best if I could set it to stick drive, external drive or network drive for backup purpose or easy access. Maybe the upgrade can fix it? showShow review details
Great software for home security 4 stars by goshtac419 Mar 17, 2013 (Read all my 3 reviews)
Have looked for some time for a good software solution to tie in a Audio Video USB grabber I have had for some time. Wanted to tie my computer into security cameras outside of my home. ContaCam was the ideal solution for this issue and although some of the settings can initially be confusing, I found it to be an excellent program to turn my PC into a security DVR. The motion detection aspect works very well ( Sometimes too well if it is winter and you have blowing snow in the camera's field of view. ) All told, a great program and being Free, you can't beat the price... showShow review details
Capture this 5 stars by gimpguy Jul 22, 2012 (Read all my 1158 reviews)
A long time ago there was a software that allowed your cam to become a motion detector cam, security cam, etc... but it didn't have a lot of options and I since got tired of it. After trying this, I am back into it yet again. Capturing and detecting device was no issue at all, did a great job. Definitely worth it, even just the fun of turning you cam into a security cam is worth downloading and trying this. showShow review details
