If you are a new user, please, read this very short guide. It will help you to understand how this software works. And, may be give you more ideas on how to use this software. We, in turn, would like to know such a fresh look. :-)
WebCam Looker is surveillance and web publishing system with unlimited number of sources.
The principle of operation is very simple:
Source -> Continuous or Motion Detection mode -> Destinations.
For surveillance, the "Motion Detection" mode is most popular option. For publishing snapshots to Internet the "Continuous archiving" mode is the option (of course, depending on what you like to publish...).
- zone(s) where to detect movements;
- sensitivity level.
Note: make sure that selected level detects the necessary movements and does not produce false detections. To detect only big movements make the level higher. You can configure "5" for the first try.
"Destinations" could be the following:
FTP upload, HTTP upload, built-in web server;
send SMS, e-mail;
playing of a sound file.
Note: if you have a real dedicated IP address, you can publish images on local computer, or access sources remotely from Internet: just enable "built-in Web server" via "Web-server" tab of the "Settings" dialog.
You can configure adding images or text to the destination images by clicking "Markers Settings" button on the destination dialogs. You can resize that dialog if need an exact positioning...
Make sure that you have enabled "Autorun program" option at "General" tab of Settings dialog. Otherwise program will not start after your computer reboot.
And now, just a few samples, of many different program uses.
1. Upload snapshots to the Internet - FTP upload.
From main Window:
2. Remote access to local webcam devices (screenshot, or other sources).
Now you can access your "URL of the page" remembered above from Internet (html) via Internet Browser or from your cellphone (wap).
3. Computer activity monitoring.
At the main window of the program you can call a popup menu (by right-mouse click) to access additional functions.
More detailed description you can find at other "Help" topics.
