Periscope Pro v1

Motion-based Video Surveillance

Periscope Pro turns your Mac into a surveillance system that records video clips with sound.
You can store the clips to view them later, or automatically upload them so you can see what’s happening remotely!

Features and screenshots

Periscope Pro is an easy-to-use app that uses your Mac’s built-in camera and microphone, or an external camera and microphone, to take video clips of whatever it is pointed at – your desk, your front door, a filing cabinet, the refrigerator, or anything else you want to monitor, including who is using your Mac when you are not there.

With its sophisticated motion detection system, you only record when there is something to see. You can also use either Timed recording (record every n minutes) or continuous recording, depending on your needs.

By linking Periscope Pro to your Dropbox account, it automatically saves the clips to your Dropbox file as they are shot, so you can view them from wherever you are – downstairs, across town or around the world.

With Periscope Pro you can:
- see if your kids are having their friends over when you are gone
- be sure your partner is sticking to his diet
- check on the babysitter
- monitor your pets

And, if your computer is taken, you have videos of the thief, their surroundings, their voice and maybe even their name and other personal details.
