Apple Mac Security Cameras

Learn how to use your Apple Mac to setup a Macintosh controlled video surveillance home or business monitoring solution in just a couple of easy steps...

Any relatively new Mac running OSX can become the backbone of a robust and scaleable surveillance security system. Simply connect any USB, Firewire, Network, or Wireless IP webcam to your existing Mac. Add some video capture software from folks like Ben Bird's SecuritySpy, Evological's EvoCam, or Econtechnology's ImageCaster and you're good to go.

Use the software to capture images and even send remote alerts to your iPhone, iPod Touch, or any email account you specify. Just point your camera in the direction you want to monitor, set the software options, and start your surveillance system.

Monitor the baby while you're at your desk, check on the back yard, see who's at the door, keep an eye on your pets - all possible with a Mac computer controlled video monitoring solution.

Mac Mini Surveillance Systems are cheap and easy to set up.

With the right web camera, you can even adjust the zoom and pan from a remote location - keep tabs on those areas of special concern.
