Description:

Motion Detector is a light-weight surveillance tool for your mac. Motion Detector continuously monitors the surrounding of your mac using your mac’s built-in iSight webcam (or any other external webcams supported by mac). When motion is detected (or when environment sound reaches a certain level), the app can start automatic recording and/or Email notification, so you will have physical records of what has happened.

To set up Motion Detector, simply point your mac’s webcam to the area you want to monitor, and start Motion Detector on the mac and leave it on. The app will start monitoring the area for you.

Feature:

* Motion detection using sophisticated mathematical models.
* Sound detection using the mac's built-in microphone.
* Automatic Email notification.
* Automatic trigger video and audio recording.
* Automatic trigger custom AppleScript, Unix script or Automator Workflow.
* Define custom motion area such as windows or door.
* Selectable movie quality from VGA to HD.
* Recording playback and export.
* Add memo to your recording.
* Quick access from mac’s status icons.
* Unobtrusive and light-weight, designed to do background recording.

Review by Korgan05

THIS IS A SCAM! - Apps that do not work properly should not be on the app store! The only thing this app has managed to do is fill up my terabyte hard drive! It is obvious to me now that this was never really intended to be a working app. When I read the About Motion Detector I see that it is Version 1.0(1) and the Engineering was done by “Some People” the ‘Human Interface Design’, whatever the heck that is suppose to mean, was done by “Some other people” and the TESTING WAS DONE BY “HOPEFULLY NOT NOBODY”. I hereby conclude that the person that is responsible for this mess of a program not only has horrible grammar, but thought it would be funny to steal money from people honestly seeking for an HD recording app for the mac. I am very annoyed at the continuous error messages produced by Motion Detector and will recommend this app to NO ONE.
