ContaCam 4.9.7

This is a powerful security surveillance and live webcam solution that can detect motion and send you notifications when such situations occur
ContaCam makes for a very efficient surveillance system, packed with an attractive feature set that includes recording and motion detection, relying on a password protected integrated web server in order to stream the video content.

Live webcams and surveillance applications are the key to monitoring the activity inside your house, your shop and virtually, anywhere you’ve got a webcam. Streaming and recording the content that’s being captured by such devices requires the assistance of software such as ContaCam.

ContaCam makes an impression through the impressive set of webcam monitoring features, as well as through ease of use and accessibility.

It comes wrapped inside a simple, yet convenient design that gathers all of the goodies inside a few menus, which are easy to explore and navigate. It connects itself to a host where you have the webcam up and running and captures the stream, displaying it accurately and in live mode.

The actions you can perform on live webcam images are numerous, including the possibility to rotate, resize and flip them, as well as to adjust the brightness and the contrast or to apply various effects such as grayscale, negative, sharpen and soften to name just a few.

You can also gather all the images inside a slideshow, or scan the graphics and convert them to TIFF or PDF, as well as attach them to an email.

A special feature is the motion detection option that monitors a stream for changes inside the captured content and can take immediate action (FTP uploads, email notifications or running an external program) once a breach has been detected.

In a nutshell, ContaCam makes the time you spend with it worthwhile, being ease to configure despite its complex purpose. It’s a must for anyone who wants to keep tabs on a surveillance system.
