WatchCam - This is an excellent app !!, You can't beat the price for this home monitoring security system. This app does exactly what the write up says, and I have and will tell all my coworkers, and friends who have Mac's about this app. If you are like me, I just moved back in to apartment life, and it sure is nice to be able to see who has entered your apartment, or home and know exacltly what they were doing. I bought two of these app's one for my iMac, and one for my Apple IOS devices, so that I could monitor my apartment. Today was a great test of this security monitoring system, I had maintenance come in and fix something, and they had no clue that from the time they opened the door until the time they left they were on camera, and I was able to see this while at work from my iPhone, thanks to the video's being sent up to iCloud, that is another great plus, because if your computer or IOS device gets stolen the thief has no way to erase what was sent to iCloud provided that you have a password on your computer and it is not hacked. Excellent job on this app, Thank you so much for this app, I know I feel a whole bunch safer knowing my apartment is being monitored. The customer service is also Great, I wrote to them and gave a couple of suggestions. and was told that they might be added in the next update, pretty cool knowing that you have a small part in the product !!.

Not worth a penny - This App isnt worth it. The motion detection is horrible. You can not view it on other devices. The most important thing you can not do is set it up while computer is in sleep mode. Dont waste your money like I did.

Review by exhilar8r

Crashes constantly but works for recording - I use this to monitor traffic in my office at night--construction etc. It's worked to document some visitors, and I can watch a clip after the recording sessions are done in the AM. THe problem is that it crashes after playing one clip. ALso, no documentation. Developer's webiste appears to be defunct. No clear instructions on how to have iCloud delivery of recordings, which would be a very cool feature for real-time supervision. But the motion sensor works fine, and the recordings get made. I have a little post-it note with some innocuous message over the green light on the cam. This appears to be abandonware, and is relatively functional for its intended use. The crashing is annoying but I just force quit and restart--over and over.

What the???????????????? WARNING! - UPDATE: IT EVENTUALLY DOWNLOADED this morning, so I take that bit back. I entered my email address as prompted, went straight to my email……. and the link to iCloud EXPIRED ONE MINUTE BEFORE I COULD HIT IT!! Anyone know how to resend link as the developers are not available nor will they be in the future by the looks of it. In other words, NO WatchCam support available. :( So, I purchased the app, watched it download, clicked on ‘OPEN’…………… Nothing! Off I go to WatchCam Support and they’ve done a runner!!! The domain Infoxenter is up the sale! Really??? So this is a classic ‘Hit and Run’. Should have realised when the app hadn’t been updatedsince November 21st, 2013. App Store, you OWE ME $4.99. You need to monitor your apps more closely. This app was to help STOP theft, not support it. Dear Lord!!!!!
