Modern professional surveillance software works with any webcamera, Internet cameras, and major capture cards.

Web camera software identifies motion, sounds siren, captures images, records video, and sends captured images by e-mail Security software has become so complicated that the normal user who has been busy minding his office instead of pouring over electronics and ip technology articles can be easily overwhelmed when it comes time to setup or modernize his surveillance system.
Fortunately, there is modern professional security software that simplifies much of the decision making. You don't necessarily have to get rid of a working analog CCTV system in order to update to a broadcasting video that can be monitored from any online connected station or 3G phone. Video capture cards can digitally convert the images for webcast. Until yesterday, there had been no real attempts to regulate the new IP cameras; every make and manufacturer functioned a little differently. And when you throw cameras into the join, finding one application to rule them all was cumbersome.
Professional surveillance application is now accessible that will work for any web camera or Internet webcam and for most capture cards as well. You can monitor whatever your motion detectors are picking up at your home or business while you can be half a world away. The application itself may not be easy, but it can get life simpler for you.

If you find yourself with a need to record security video with a web camera over an area, webcamera server software may be the right choice for you. Using this application, it is possible to set up a camera to detect motion and begin recording when it does.
Depending on your needs, the sights and sounds that are picked up by the camera may be stored on a hard drive, or if the captured video needs to be available off-site, can be webcast using the server's broadcasting function to a website.
Depending on the quality of the camera and the viewer's video card, the picture that is recorded may be as clear as a high-definition television signal. Using a install like this, it is possible to provide a measure of surveillance for an area while the economics of the situation do not justify hiring a security firm or setting up a professional monitoring system.
This do-it-yourself approach can save money while not compromising on protection.

I'm using webcamera software. I can webcast Internet video to watch my home from everywhere.

Webcam software identifies motion, triggers alarm, captures images, records video, and sends captured images by e-mail With my new web camera software, I can run a broadcasting webcast of my apartment visible online. This opens up a group of possibilities, the surface of which has not even been scratched in today's world. I can use this broadcast for surveillance purposes, allowing me to see what's going on in my apartment at any moment from a remote watching computer.
As long as I have the web camera running and a remote station with Online access, I can view the apartment. With the application and the camera, I can change the options to capture picture, detect activity (if I don't want to keep the camera running at all times), or use a combination of a live feed and recorded video to realize a protection system that takes full advantage of nevest know-how.
With a capture card, I can easily transmit appropriate video and screenshots to use on any computer.
With sensitive data on my pc and priceless stuff in my room, it only makes sense to have a protection setup that I can monitor whenever I feel that my privacy is being compromised. If I owned a small firm or lived with roommates, I couldn't imagine living without it.
