About 10 years ago I purchased a logitech camera for video chat. The video chat was horrible because the internet speeds of the day were sloth-like. Internet aside, the camera was cool, well…that’s not totally true now that I think about it, it’s resolution was only 640×480 (an old flip phone has better resolution). I guess what I am trying to say is the software logitech created was fun to play with because it had the ability to be a motion detecting camera. If it detected motion, it would record and then save that video footage.
A few years ago someone was stealing money from different church offices and mine was one of them. For a couple of weeks I setup my camera and software, turned my computer monitor off, locked my computer, and let things play out. Sure enough, Busted! I did it again a few years later when thing came up missing in our high school room…BOOM, Caught!
Well…this week the Christian bandits struck again! This time it was only Diet Cokes and all of the student ministry ketchup and mustard but every condiment and beverage should be safe at a church…right? Brandon the Vigilante, super power…technology. My logitech camera is still around but the software will not load so I started looking for a motion dection app.
Presence, by People Power, turns any iOS device into a FREE WiFi or cellular video camera! The app features real-time audio and video streaming, motion detection video alerts, and 2-way conversation mode. You can set your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch up to capture footage with another as a monitor or you can just leave your iOS device in a secret location (all connected to wifi or a data plan) and it will email you footage when it detects motion.
