Like others, I intend to use this app for stolen Mac recovery. It would be much more valuable for that purpose with whatever geo location info is possible to include with each snap (particularly WiFi ID and IPs), preferably in the EXIF data. This can be raw data that isn't converted to human readable location until necessary.

I suggest there also be a feature to automatically save only the last X number of snaps on the FTP server (or DAV, why not Dropbox and MobileMe) so that if the owner leaves this app on, the server isn't filled with useless snaps.

If the Mac is stolen, the snaps can be saved from the directory on the server before they are over-written by the newer snaps, allowing location data and snaps to help track down the perps and recover the Mac, and probably other items stolen.

My web dev apps are able to poll the server for file versions so that is why I think FTP/DAV can also be used to delete the oldest snaps on the server. I suggest the number of snaps saved on the server should be optional, as well as the snap interval. I would leave at least the last 200-300 on the server.

Yes, motion detection would be great.....wondering what the response would be, am thinking about buying it now, but having screenshots at wide intervals might miss something, taking screenshots in small intervals takes up too much space/bandwidth.........no motion detection to get only what I need to see that is moving in front of my computer/in the room is making me lean away from purchase at this time......

I would like to know if this app can take shots only when isight "notice" some activity, because I could use it in order to survey my room when I'm not at home.

There is no motion detection in this release of MMM, if the demand is there a future release is likely to feature this ability.

If you're using this software to recover a stolen computer, there's a downside. You don't really want the computer taking pictures and screenshots while you, (the legitimate owner) are using it. You only want ti doing that when it's stolen.

Perhaps you could have the program run in idle mode. All it does in idle mode is check an FTP server at some user-determined interval. When it logs in, it looks for a file called "stolen" in the directory. If it finds one, then it goes into picture taking / screenshot taking mode.

Just an idea.

Thanks for that idea. That could work. I may implement something similar in a future version.

The way it is designed at the moment is that you set the Stealth version of MonitorMyMac to start when the computer starts. If you are the legit user you will just terminate the application. If the computer is then stolen the first time it is restarted MMM starts recording ...
