Sighthound is advanced computer vision software that has been adapted for consumer and business use. The software is able to monitor video feeds and detect humans and objects. Most other software, which uses motion detection, watches pixels change from light to dark - it has no idea what it saw. By using intelligent computer vision, Sighthound solves two of the biggest problems in video security; it makes real time alerts far more likely to accurately detect people, and it makes searching back through days of video footage about as easy as a Google search. For good measure, the software is intuitive to use and can be installed with a simple download in minutes.

What people are saying about Sighthound

Share your experience of Sighthound Video.

As a homeowner running a small business from home and new to surveillance systems, Sighthound appears to be an amazing software upgrade to the impenetrable nonsense provided by [camera manufacturer]. After struggling for many hours with the default software I was impressed to see how quickly I had the starter edition of Sighthound up and running - including remote access from an iPad - and how Sighthound seems to perfectly suit my needs.

Now that SightHound has a remote server built in, I can view clips, control scenes or just check out my cameras. I used to have each camera setup externally so that I can check things out when I'm not home. With this, everything is through one piece of software. Just awesome, keep up the good work!
