BTV maker Ben Bird has released SecuritySpy v1.0, a new software application designed to provide multi-camera video surveillance using the Mac OS.
The software features support not just for Mac-compatible video input devices, but many network devices as well, including products made by Axis, JVC, Panasonic, Pixford, D-Link and others. SecuritySpy captures and displays live video from multiple cameras simultaneously on your Mac.
SecuritySpy’s capabilities include motion detection and timelapse capture; a built-in Web server so you can view images and video over a network; Pan, Tilt and Zoom capabilities for many network cameras; customizable compression; FTP upload; e-mail notification and more.
Designed to support Mac OS X and Mac OS 9, SecuritySpy can be downloaded as a 30-day evaluation before purchase. For single camera use, SecuritySpy costs $50; up to four simultaneous cameras costs $100; up to eight costs $200; and unlimited simultaneous camera support costs $400.
