Crime Catcher 3.22

Crime Catcher enables your webcam to catch crime (motion detection)
Setting up a top-notch surveillance system is usually a difficult task, especially when it involves advanced applications and last-generation hardware devices.

Crime Catcher on the other hand is one of the apps that promise to do everything a lot easier, offering not only a user friendly interface to cope with users' requirements, but also support for any webcam connected to your system.

Supposed to turn the computer into a full-featured security system, Crime Catcher relies on advanced motion detection tools that can automatically start recording whenever motion is detected.

The application not only that supports motion effects, but it also records the activity as an AVI file which is then saved on the system for later viewing by the user. In addition, it can send an audio notification whenever motion is detected, just like a typical surveillance system.

Since motion detection is the number 1 feature, Crime Catcher provides a comprehensive wizard to help you adjust all its parameters, including sensitivity and the amount of motion needed to start recording.

On the good side, while it provides such a great amount of features, Crime Catcher remains light on hardware resources, while working flawlessly on all Windows versions. It doesn't require administrator privileges on Windows 7 and even sports a password protection tool to avoid being closed.

Overall, Crime Catcher does what it says and although the interface is not one of the things that make it a bit more user friendly, the application shouldn't raise too many problems to rookies.
