9 SECURITY WEBCAM
If you have an old web camera gathering dust in a cupboard, you can easily put it to good use as a live security camera. All you need is a free applications like iSpy ( www.ispyconnect.com) or WebcamXP ( www.webcamxp.com). iSpy, for example, uses your webcams and microphones to detect and record movement or sound and provides security, surveillance, monitoring and alerting services. iSpy is free but remote access and email alerts require a web services subscription. The free version of user friendly WebCamXP unfortunately doesn’t have the ability to alert you when it detects motion.
