Evological EvoCam 2.6.4 Upgrade Review

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.

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.
