What people are saying about Sighthound

Share your experience of Sighthound Video.

Works great for my small one-camera office. In fact, it's the best motion-capture and object discriminator I've found to date.

The most valuable tool a Neurologist can have in addressing seizures is video, as identifying specific body movement will determine the kind happening. Seizures can be gone for years and come back so monitoring is very important. Your software is a really wonderful tool for this and just wanted to say thank you. Combing through tons of recordings looking for an event is time prohibitive.
