iSpy uses your webcams and microphones to detect and record movement or sound and provides security, surveillance, monitoring and alerting services. Any media that is captured is compressed to flash video or mp4 and made available, securely over the web or to mobile devices and over the local network. iSpy can be setup to run on multiple computers simultaneously and has full Email and SMS alerting functions.
