DawnArk WebCam Monitor is a program that will let you use your webcam to view what is going on at home when you are away. This way you can monitor your children or pets, or check that no one has used or stolen your computer or web camera. DawnArk WebCam Monitor can send pictures captured at given lapses to your Photobucket.com account, which you can check periodically on any computer or mobile phone connected to the Internet. This way you will build your own remote surveillance system.
This program also allows you to record videos from your webcam, with sound coming from any source you select (the microphone being the most obvious one). You can select which format you want the program to use to save the video files. The program has built-in profiles for each format, but you can modify them for your convenience.
The unregistered version of DawnArk WebCam Monitor will place a big watermark on every captured video, and will record just the first sixty seconds. It will also send only a hundred pictures to your Photobucket.com account.
