Adjustment Tool

Adjust your video device through the driver based dialogs.
Several video devices - At the start of the program select your preferred working video device from a list of all existing video devices.
Record AVI videos form your video device in the actual video format, with or without audio, in any length.
Take pictures from your video device in the actual video format.
View the last taken picture in a separate window.
Convert every picture taken into GIF and/or JPG ( with a chosen compression factor ).
Print captions on your picture, such as the actual date, time or your own text. This can also be done in motion detector and FTP mode.
Preview window - Show or hide a preview window. Halt the video in the preview window, or let it run.
Only preview window - Show only the preview window on your desktop with a black background around.
Preview fullscreen - Stretch the preview window to fullscreen.
Always on top - Show the preview window as the topmost window above all other windows, to always see what happens.
Taskbar ICON - The application generates no button in the taskbar, but only an icon in the system area of the taskbar. You can minimize the applications window to have only the preview window on your desktop (topmost or not), or nothing.

Motion Detector

Relevant Areas - Select the areas of the video picture that are relevant for the motion detection, by painting.
Picture Difference - Adjust the picture difference in % ( of the relevant areas ) at which a motion detection occurs.
Action at Detection - Select the functions that will be carried out at when motion is detected : take pictures, record an AVI, execute any external program, update a log file, play a sound, FTP transfer, send Emails.
Picture taking and AVI recording - Select whether you want the file name to be the same each time or if you want a new file at each detection ( file_001.jpg/.avi ... file_99999.jpg/.avi ). You can specify the maximum number of files to create.
Test for motion only once, once per x seconds, or as often as possible.
Different test modes - compare the current picture against the picture when the detection started, against the previous picture, or against the last picture without a detection.

FTP client

Dial Up - Dials ( and hangs up ) automatically to establish an Internet connection. You can select the time period in which dialup is allowed.
FTP connection - Connect to your choosen Internet FTP server.
Uploading Files - Upload selected files to the target server directory, periodically every x seconds, or at motion detection, or manually by clicking.
Upload the actual video picture to your homepage. Take pictures, optionally converting them to GIF and/or JPG, and automatically upload them every x seconds.!
Permanent picture mode - The program connects once to the Internet and to your FTP server and then takes pictures and uploads them permanently or in x second intervals. If you wish, the program can take a break for a while and then restart from the beginning, so you will always have the actual video picture on your webpage to see what is happening in front of the camera. An easy-to-use JAVA applet is included for showing and updating the picture on your web page. Another method is to take permanent pictures (with breaks and/or intervals) and save them on your harddrive. Then install one of the several freeware webservers/FTPservers and you have a constant surveillance in your LAN or from the Internet.
FTP without a video device. - You can use the FTP client functions without having a video device.
