Yawcam stands for Yet Another Webcam Software. Yawcam is a free webcam surveillance software that lets you monitor your home with your webcam. Yawcam is quite simple to use, and basic in options. You can monitor your stream from internet as well.
I earlier reviewed a few other webcam surveillance software, like HomeCamera, and Vitamin D. Both of these are good software to monitor your home with your webcam. Yawcam is also in the same group. It does not comes with as advanced features as these two software, but it is quite simple to use.
Yawcam comes with all the standard features, like:
Motion Detection: Yawcam can detect motion in its area of view. You can specify the sensitivity of motion detection, and also pick if you want to detect motion only on some specific area of screen.
Video Streaming: You can setup Yawcam to stream video from your webcam, and you can watch them on your browser.
Stealth Mode:Yawcam comes with Stealth mode. In this mode, Yawcam starts when you computer starts, but no window is visible on desktop. It runs in background without anybody knowing.
Yawcam is an easy to use and free home webcam surveillance software.
