Sighthound Video is security cam software that works with pretty much all webcams. Specifically, it works with any webcam that supports the standards used for plugging into a USB or Firewire port (including cameras that are built into laptops or monitors). There are certain incompatibilities with specific models and workarounds that are described here.
Network (IP) cameras
When we say that Sighthound is IP camera security software, we are drawing a distinction between network cameras, which have an IP address, and analog CCTV cameras that use older technology. To use network cameras, Sighthound Video requires some model-specific settings to be entered. Sighthound Video should work with almost any IP camera, except those few that do not expose a direct video feed. Cameras that appear in the list below have their settings pre-configured in Sighthound Video. If your model is not in the list, you can try settings for similar models, consult your manual or your manufacturer or us for help. More details can be found here.
Analog (CCTV) cameras
Sighthound Video does not work directly with analog cameras, but there are products called "encoders" that convert analog video signals to digital formats. Some encoders are listed below, and others may work if you can find the appropriate settings. While we say that Sighthound is software that works with IP cameras and webcams, many people report successfully using CCTV analog cameras with our software using an encoder. If you have such a set up, please look for help on the forums, and use the free Sighthound Video download before purchasing to make sure you are happy with the results.
