Sighthound

(Windows, Mac) - A security camera that records days and days of footage isn't going to help you spot any funny business. You just don't have time to review it. Sighthound allows you not only to set your camera to begin recording whenever motion is detected, but it also knows the difference between people and objects.

You can even choose to detect movement in a specific area such as a door or window to help further narrow your frame of reference. This program is for both Windows and Mac computers.
