Netcam Studio surveillance system for Windows PC
Once you’ve downloaded and installed Netcam Studio, you will see an app named ‘Netcam Studio Server’ under the Start screen or menu. Run that app and you are done with hosting your surveillance server. Netcam Studio Server can be installed as a Windows Service or it can also run from system tray of the Windows.
Now you can connect to that server from the Internet. I have connected to my server from a local computer. Once you’ve connected to your server, you need to add the Video sources. You can view the attached webcams to the server PC or you can add the Network cameras attached to the Server PC.
Once you are done with adding sources, you may click on the source you want to view. In addition to traditional surveillance, Netcam can also detect sounds and motion for you. Under settings, you can go to Rule Manager and you can create your custom rules for different actions. For example, you can create your rule for audio detection that is, if the program would detect audio on the server PC it may start your chosen action. And similarly, if it detects motion, it may again perform some action.
With this amazing program, you can even activate Email and SMS notifications which are very useful and they always keep you informed about activities on your computer. But remember, if you want to use the email notification, you need your own SMPT email sending server. And similarly, for SMS you need to have your own SMS service provider.
On the server PC, there is a Library folder created and the same is for the Client PC, the Library folders are frequently synced so that the data between folders remains the same, you can even activate FTP synchronization and there is also support for automatic Cloud upload.
