Cam Wizard 6.06

Cam Wizard turns any web cam into a powerful CCTV camera surveillance system with motion detection. it's the ultimate webcam security application for your Windows XP PC. When Cam Wizard is running it constantly monitors your PC webcam looking for any motion in the scene or in a user defined rectangle within the scene. When motion is detected, video capture into a WMV movie file begins.

The WMV video can then be archived to disk and emailed to any email address of your choice. The emailing function does not rely on any third party emailing software or user interaction, Cam Wizard has a robust SMTP mail sending engine embedded right in the application itself, very nice!

Cam Wizard movies contain a millisecond accurate time stamp on every frame as a transparent overlay, thus movies are perfectly suitable for courtroom evidence purposes. Why go to the bother and expense of purchasing a CCTV video surveillance system with motion detection when Cam Wizard can do it all for you! Never before has it been this easy to setup a high tech home security system that's capable of sending emails containing video of intruders instantly.

With Cam Wizard it's possible to set up a multiple camera video surveillance system in a matter of seconds, and there's no need for dodgy long play analogue tape systems, Cam Wizard spools the WMV movie straight to your hard drive or network drive. One hours worth of footage takes only ~12MB, so a 100gig hard drive has enough room for over a year of footage!

With it's audio alarm function Cam Wizard can alert you of detected motion with a siren like a car alarm or it can play any audio file (.mp3 or .wav), great for a trade counter monitor to alert staff of customers.

Cam Wizard is also a flexible cam broadcasting tool: It features a robust FTP upload engine, so it can be used to push live cam JPEGs onto a web server using standard FTP protocol. Plus a built in web server means Cam Wizard can serve live JPEG video feed to any browser.

I'd downloaded it afterall but haven't got round to using it so don't know how good it is.

As for webcams, if you are using vista, double check that it will work with your os as mine wouldn't.

If you need any help streaming your video to your mobile I can help, but you'll need to setup a server as a second machine and have a static IP address.
