Tips to getting the most from your free webcam security system
There is a limit to the number of webcams you can use to create your home security system. The limit is in the USB controller of your computer. Controllers can become overburdened with the throughput of video if too many cameras are connected to the same USB controller. You can try plugging the webcam into a different USB port elsewhere on the machine, or lowering its resolution. Don’t forget you’ll need a paid version of Sighthound Video to run more than one webcam.
Sighthound Video is free for one camera, but can grow with you as you grow your system. You can start with a webcam for simple indoor video monitoring, then add the best outdoor night vision camera from one manufacturer and the best indoor dome camera from another until you have a system that meets your needs. Freedom from vendor lock-in, freedom to do what you want with your video, freedom to start small, and freedom to choose the best camera for the job.
