PC or Laptop (Windows) USB cam as a security camera

Wait…? Link was removed? Was it a bad link? I guess Google will be my friend.

@4d4328a11d3f0dfe514e not bad just a conflict of interests.

Thanks, pinky-free-user. Interestingly enough, I. can see the original post (which I wasn’t seeing before). Now I don’t even see the post I was talking about at all. If it was a conflict of interest thing, I would think that the OP would have been the one to be censored.

@4d4328a11d3f0dfe514e it’s ok the program is referred to in the thread you just need to browse through.
Regards

Thanks, not sure what that is for but thanks non the less.

With free programs, you can use your laptop to monitor your maintenance area through its built-in camera. Most programs are free but straightforward. For excellent functionality, you can pay for additional features from the likes of Yawcam (what we’re using today), iSpy, SecuritySpy, and others.

As far as I am aware https://www.yawcam.com yawcam is and has always been completely free to use. What do you pay extra for ? I never used yawcam because it was originally based on Java, will have to investigate how it’s getting on.

ContaCam is the best program for IP cameras. It does have a “no donation” graphic at the bottom right if you do not donate to the developer. It is by no means a deal breaker to use it for free. I did donate because it is such a great program and to help development, not to remove the graphic, which is quite tiny on the video I might add.
