Xeoma: Make your own surveillance system with a few clicks, free

Now making a surveillance system for your home or at your work is no longer difficult. With Xeoma, you can create a surveillance system for your home or office in just a few minutes and clicks. Xeoma is basically a free, cross-platform web surveillance software, that lets a user easily create a webcam network that can be managed from this software. The whole webcam network acts like a surveillance system.

Free Web Surveillance Software

Now a days, you can get many inexpensive wired or wireless webcams in the market. The free version of Xeoma can view only one camera at a time, but you can switch between multiple cameras without any problems. In the free version, you are only allowed to have four modules, modules are basically the features Xeoma can perform with your Surveillance system. Some of the modules are:

  • Universal Camera
  • Microphone
  • Screen Capture
  • Motion detected
  • Scheduler
  • Preview
  • Sending Email
  • Day detector
  • Save to file.

The features of this software are really very good. I really feel that you can create a good surveillance system with this software. It is offered in 2 variants – free and commercial. The limitations of the free variant have been discussed above. In the commercial variant, a user is allowed to view 8 cameras or 8 different sources at a single time.

The software comes as a single EXE file, which means that it is a portable application. If you don’t like Portable apps than you can even install it on your system. Installation options are also available. Xeoma is very easy to use. After using Xeoma, I feel that the interface of Xeoma is touch friendly and it is optimized for touch screens.

One very useful feature of Xeoma is remote access. You can make your Xeoma act as a server for your whole surveillance system or you can use it to connect to any other Xeoma server, so that you can manage your surveillance system from anywhere around this globe.

To make your Xeoma server you can simply go to menu and click on ‘Remote Access’ and then on ‘Repeater Settings’. And if you want to connect to a Xeoma server then instead of ‘Repeater Settings’ you can choose ‘Connect to a Remote Server option’.

I hope you like it. Click here to download Xeoma and start monitoring.

  1. I was fully aware of the free offer, but dismissed it to be of little importance to us – as we/bloggers can anyway usually get a license of almost any software on request…But here is the link of their special offer: http://felenasoft.com/xeoma/en/specialoffer/bloggers/… And just noticed something – the review has to be of 400+ words whereas this review is of 383 words! 😀

    As mentioned, the freeware version does have a limitation… “The free version of Xeoma can view only one camera at a time…and 4 modules only…”

    Xenoma software is very powerful and useful. You can use it on computer and also on your phone device. Many features, alerts, motion detection and many more. Very easy to use – so important to newbies.

    well, the fact they offer a free license for posting a review of their product should not be considered as a violation, simply because I doubt the company is a USA one. So…smart enough of them 🙂

    what concerns a programm itself, I like it. i was looking for smth simple and functional, and this one meets all my expectations. i’m definitely not a tech-savvy, and also this programm forced my brain to make some effort to fully understand it…but still it is easy enough and also i like the interface.

    I use it to watch my small photocopying business and it helps a lot. Especially i appreciate a remote control feature.

    Xeoma is the best I can find – I recently purchased a couple of cheap IP
    cameras online, I was amazed how much this technology has come down in
    price and have been wanting to setup a simple home surveillance system
    that I could use to monitor things at home while I am at work or while
    the family and I are away on holiday. After playing with the cameras and
    their software quite a bit, I found I had begun to familiarize myself
    with the common terms and setting of these devices, and wanted to
    utilize the full potential that these cameras can offer. I found that
    the software that is built into these cameras was very often buggy and
    not very reliable. Sometimes my settings would work, other times they
    would fail and I don’t know why. I tried contacting the manufacturers
    support on multiple occasions and received not much more than short
    responses advising me that technical support would email back about my
    problems with the software, which never happened. In my search for
    answers in other places online such as forums and blogs, I found advice
    that was mostly geared towards technically advanced users, which I have
    no shame in saying, is not me. However I did come across information on
    applications that take the place of my IP cameras manufacturer software,
    and now it was a whole new game for me, I had to find what would work
    for my cameras, provide me with the functionality I was looking for and
    something I could use without obtaining a masters in programming. After
    finding that many of the camera software solutions either did not have
    all the features that I wanted or that that they simply did not support
    my H.264 type cameras, I was narrowed down to a short list of
    applications to try out. I first tried iSpy, which seems to be a feature
    rich application. This did not start off as a great experience; just
    getting my cameras to display an image was a day or so of frustrations
    and researching the help sections. Even then I found that I did not have
    the full functionality of my cameras, no pan/tilt, I could not have
    that. So my I search led me onto Xeoma. I came across other reviews and
    information that made this application one of the stand outs. Right
    away, Xeoma was checking all the boxes for me, as soon as I started the
    application, it went to work automatically searching for cameras, and
    the first thing to pop up was my webcam! This was great, not only was I
    going to be able to use my IP cameras, but my webcam would also now play
    a much more useful role as an indoor surveillance device rather than
    its whole life of collecting dust on the desk. Quickly and easily, I was
    able to setup record schedules, motion detection areas to be triggered
    which send me email notifications, Xeoma has something like a time delay
    feature which records a period before an event occurs as well as the
    event, and I can set the sensitivity level, so it is not triggered by
    something like the cat walking past. I can even access the cameras while
    I am at work to check up on things at home just in case. I have yet to
    play with some of the other options such as SMS notifications, or
    setting access restrictions, but the great thing is that Xeoma has these
    features and probably plenty more that I will discover the more I play
    with it. The only other thing that cannot go without mentioning is the
    interface. Xeoma has got the cleanest, user-friendly interface of any
    camera software I have come across. I really have to give the developers
    credit, its well ahead of anything else in its class. My final word is,
    if you’re on the market for a video surveillance solution, you have to
    at least give Xeoma a try. Xeoma is compatible with Windows, Linux and
    Mac OS. It’s for free to try out and the full version is as
    competitively priced as anything else you will find on the market. I
    doubt you will regret it.

    I am not a security pro, I didn’t even have an intention to set a home
    surveillance. I just needed to look after my dog while I am at work, because my
    neighbors started to complain it barks all the time I am away. So I needed to
    fing out what was going on. Free version was enough for me, cause I needed just
    a single camera in my system (at an entrance hall). But if I am to choose a
    software for a DIY home surveillance I will definitely opt for Xeoma again.
