A surveillance application and live webcam monitoring that can detect the movement and send you notifications.
ContaCam is a free, highly effective surveillance application that comes with a set of features, including motion detection and detection, and the detected video content is transmitted via a password-protected web server.
ContaCam is simple and easy to navigate, connects to a host where you have your webcam turned on and captures the stream, displaying it in live mode.
ContaCam has a very efficient motion detection algorithm that lets you set the sensitivity, define the size of the viewing area, ignore the shorter detection than a defined period, and even schedule when the detection is turned on or off.
It also has a number of other settings for the camera's basic operations, the ability to rotate, resize and overturn, as well as adjust brightness and contrast or apply various effects.
The application can convert the video to PDF by gathering all the images in a slideshow, and send them an email or upload the video to an FTP server.
ContaCam supports several types of hardware, webcams, WDM and DV devices and IP cameras and has the ability to record audio and video.
In conclusion, ContaCam is a useful application for anyone who wants to keep track of a surveillance system, is easy to configure and has complex motion detection features.

Great program, not difficult to use. I have a dedicated PC running this software for my 2 cameras. I had no crashes, the up time for this program has been about 2 years straight. The only time Ive had to reboot the PC was due to Windows updates.
Having tried several webcam capture programs that were mediocre, this was a surprise, ContaCam is by far the best webcam capture program that I have used, and it deserves to be more widely known. The range of features is extraordinary, and the video quality of the captures is excellent. If you have a webcam, you must give ContaCam a try.
