HighlightCam – Want your own security camera, pet-cam or baby surveillance? More importantly, wouldn’t you prefer a visual playback which shows you only the interesting parts without the nuisance of going through hours of recording? I certainly would. If you feel the same, HighlightCam might be of interest to you. HighlightCam is a webcam video service that automatically finds the best parts of your videos – and shows you just those action-filled segments. HighlightCam makes it easy to find where and when your cat did a back flip or a burglar broke into your house. For every hour of video you record, HighlightCam will automatically generate a highlight video of a minute or less.
The best part about HighlightCam is that it’s Internet based and your webcam can be accessed from anywhere as long as you have access to a computer with an Internet connection. One additional cool feature this provider offers is the motion alert – they’ll send you an email notification when they detect motion above a certain threshold. Catch thieves in the act! This way, if anything unexpected happens while you’re away, you have more maneuverability and a greater reaction buffer so you can do something about it before it’s too late.
