Cam Wizard

With Cam Wizard, it's possible to set up a multiple camera CCTV audio/video surveillance system with motion detection in a matter of seconds.

CAM Wizard monitors the video feed from your camera, sophisticated motion detection algorithms look for motion in the scene, our state of the art algorithms make sure that false trigger events are minimised.

After motion is detected video and audio is captured as a compressed WMV movie and instantly archived straight to your hard drive or network drive.

CAM Wizard features Time Slide technology which is pre-event triggering of video capture. So video recording can start BEFORE any motion gets detected. For example: if someone walks into frame then the archived footage will start some time before the motion was detected. An amazing feature, only found on the best and most expensive CCTV systems.

Cam Wizard also features a robust FTP upload engine, so it can be used to push live cam JPEG pictures onto a web server using the standard FTP protocol. This allows you to even view a webcam that's behind a corporate firewall, very handy for setting up an office cam or cubicle cam.

Cam Wizard also has a robust HTTP server built right into the application enabling it to broadcast live JPG video feed to the internet. We supply you with a static URL to access your cam page and remote view up to four cams from anywhere in the world using just a standard internet browser, very nice!
