How many of us own a web camera but use it for nothing in particular? Yes, there's always the option to use it with something like Skype or MSN Messenger, but do you really like the idea of someone else seeing you looking unwashed on a Sunday morning? Thought not. Most of us still prefer the anonymity of the phone or typing through messaging, rather than appearing on a webcam. However, you could use your webcam to monitor the security in your room or a room in your house.
Active WebCam 9.0 is the latest version of the advanced web camera software. Believe us when we say this tool has a range of options and can be daunting for webcam software. You can use the technology to set up your webcam as a security device, with motion detection. As soon as anyone enters your room, it starts recording and can upload the images to the web, so you can access the images remotely, keeping an eye on your home.
