Features and screenshots

The Most Advanced Video Surveillance App for the Mac!

Use your built-in camera/microphone, USB remote camera/microphone, or an IP Camera wherever there is an Internet or Ethernet LAN connection, to monitor & record anything – your desk, front door, filing cabinet, vacation house, or anything else, including who is using your Mac.

With its sophisticated motion and sound detection systems, you only record when there is something to see – fewer clips to sort through, less storage used. You can also record continuously. Clips are stored on your Mac for viewing and can be automatically upload to Dropbox so you can see what’s happening from anywhere with any device!

IP Cameras are notoriously hard to setup, but with Periscope Pro it’s fast and easy and automatic – just input the camera’s address and model, and we do the rest. The setup screen preview window let’s you see what’s happening as you are working – no flipping between screens to do the setup.

Periscope Pro plays nice with IP Cameras from the following vendors:
