- Webcam as online security camera

  • Why
    • Fast detection of motions via your browser using the webcam, just one away.
    • Keep a remote eye on your house, hotel room, pets, driveway ...
    • If something moves, a motion of this object will be uploaded to your cloud account.
    • Review motions, no need to check hours of video and only upload the events.
    • Instant mobile notifications through E-mail or Telegram Messenger @motiondetectionalertbot on your phone.
    • Continuous motion support. No blind spots. Unique queueing algorithms. Fast uploads. No grace time limitations. Fast mobile access.
    • Extra secure with end-to-end encryption (Symmetric PGP/GPG AES256)
    • Best of all: FREE CLOUD Accounts!
  • What does offer?
    1. in your webbrowser with webcam:
      • Personal video CLOUD storage for your motions.
      • No configuration or extra hardware: only your webcam and browser!
      • Online security camera while saving your bandwidth.
    2. with Raspberry Pi CSI or USB camera:
  • Features
    • Secure online CLOUD storage with a mobile friendly web application to review motions of events.
    • Instant Telegram Messenger notifications for your security camera:
    • Email notifications:
      • on motions (when someone steps into the view of your webcam.).
      • when a camera is in error (power down, hardware fault,..).
      • Enable email notifications
    • User friendly web application to review your motions.
    • Fast detection of motions via your browser using the webcam.
      Just one away.
  • Privacy is very important to us:
  • About the algorithm
    • Queueing motions ensures the fastest possible uploads, our goal is to secure motions in the CLOUD within 5 to 15 seconds after the event.
    • Processing the video stream is done locally (client side) to save the bandwidth of your internet connection:
      • In your browser using HTML5
      • On your Raspberry Pi using Motion
    • Is it safe?
      • It is safe: this website calls out and uploads to internet through SSL/https, this way of uploading is more secure then using a home/DDNS solution, when internet calls in to your home.
      • With end to end encryption (Symmetric PGP/GPG AES256) enabled, password is never sent to, even with cloud access you can only decrypt motions with this password.
      • No need for DDNS, no port or router configuration has to be made.
      • No extra software, we only need the powerful Firefox web-browser with webcam or a Raspberry Pi!
    • Why 'motions' and no video?
      • It is very difficult to break video's into pieces.
      • Continuous motion support would be impossible in cases with a lot of movement as uploads would start running behind. (no more realtime status)
      • Easier to review many motions compared to reviewing multiple video's.
      • Every motion frame will be refocused with more detail and less blur due to compression.
      • Save bandwidth, disk space, faster processing and encrypting, ..
    • Preferred browser/Operating system?
      • We advise you to use the latest Firefox browser
      • .. Or Google Chrome should also do the tricks, but we do not support it officially.
      • Our motion detection and upload-service runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Android,iOS, ...
    • Can I use my smartphone as IP-Webcam with this motion detection?
      • Yes, if your device has a recent Firefox browser, it will run this motiondetection tool.
  • Problems? Trouble making settings? Bugs? We are happy to assist you.
