Updated Evocam List of Supported Webcams for Mac

I was looking at the server logs today and noticed that a past post of mine Q&A: What Wireless Gear Works With Evocam Software for Mac OSX? was the number one page viewed. Seeing how that post is now a bit out of date, I thought it would be a good idea to update that list with the latest news from Evological. Here is an Updated list of cameras and accessories currently supported by Evocam software for Mac OSX:

Evological EvoCam 2.6.4 Upgrade Review

image of evocam icon
Evological, the developer of one of my favorite software packages (Evocam) has just released an upgrade to their venerable product.

Evocam (ver 3.6.4) adds support for an even larger list of network cameras. Also with the update to this version comes the capability of iPhone support. Now you can tilt, pan, and zoom from your iPhone thru the built in web server within this software upgrade.

image of evocam software show how to set up a sensor trigger

Keep an eye on your remote location(s) and even set up triggers to start a broadcast. In the example shown, I've placed a trigger (sensor) on the mid section of the door. If the door opens, the software detects this change and starts recording.

Movement has to take place within the sensor zone for the software to activate. I like the fact that you can place triggers where you want them. This way if my pet hedgehog should walk by, he won't start the camera.

This software needs a minimum of OSX 10.4 [OSX 10.5 Leopard recommended] and Quicktime 7. Pricing is $30 to buy outright, Free for versions 3.2 or later, and $10 for version 3.1 or earlier.

Couple this great price along with an inexpensive TrendNet camera and you have a very powerful video setup on the cheap. If you want something a little better - put this software together with Panasonic's most popular Wireless IP Network Web Camera for the ultimate remote control webcam monitoring solution.

You can download a trial version (full capabilities) and give it a test run for 15 days.

ImageCaster Webcam Capture Software for Mac OSX

ImageCaster is a mature, well-written, basic webcam capture, monitoring, and FTP upload program for Mac OS X 10.3 Panther thru Leopard 10.5 from Econ Technologies. ImageCaster makes it easy to set up and publish images from a webcam - or several with it's multi-cam support. You can use it as an affordable option to monitor activities inside or outside of your home or office for security and surveillance purposes. ImageCaster supports sensor zones to provide motion detection - a great option to capture images ONLY when there is activity - and easy scheduling features to set the times and days you want to record. All you need is a workable Mac, an Apple compatible web camera, the $30 ImageCaster software, and a web page host of some sort to get started. To explore it's features download a free demo version from Econ at Econtechnologies.com

Images can come from or go to a variety of places. You can receive images from a file, a URL, or "live" images can be acquired from a video web camera. Source images can be resized, scaled or rotated as needed. An image source is selected, then you simply specify the destination. Images can be uploaded via FTP to your website or saved to a folder on your hard drive as a time-lapse gallery. You can overlay custom text or date & time stamps with full control over font, size, color, etc. ImageCaster can create a webpage for you from the templates provided, then fill in headlines, sub-headlines, and captions. You can even add your own graphics and links to other pages. All you need to do is provide the webspace to broadcast your page. Many internet providers provide web space as part of your internet and email package, you may have a .Mac/Me account, or you can get a low-cost hosting package from GoDaddy, DotEasy, or HostGator to name a few.
