I love this software (at least the demo.) However, the posting here appears to be a scam. The software is worth $50 as posted here. But when I went to the dev site to buy it (it doesn't appear to allow you to buy it through MU.) it turns out the $51.50 version only supports 1 camera. This software is NOT worth $260 to support all 8 of my cameras.

Now after over a year of nonstop security video recorded I can say that it works just like expected, what is very unexpected for a software with all that features.

Great job on that old school peace of software.

I would suggest they add support for Monoprice.com cameras!

It's the best video surveillance program for the mac. I've got 13 ~1 megapixel cameras mirrored between two sites and the program runs without a hiccup.

Giving a good rating for the application you developed yourself?


@Jjpong: Uhhh... Are you aware that there are more than one person named Ben in this world? In fact, there are several of us.


Even though this wasn't Ben the developer of SecuritySpy. Ben the developer is entitled to rate his own application. If I was him I would give it a full 5 stars.

There isn't a surveillance application for the Mac that is compatible with as many camera's, nor has the feature's that SecuritySpy has.

SecuritySpy Simply Rocks!

Version 2.1.4 is the last version to run on PPC. All versions after that are Intel Only (10.5+).

2.2 appears to have a problem with 10.8!

Installed but App refuses to remain open, continually quits after installing?

I have 6 camera's and SS 2.2.3 works flawlessly.

I haven't found any Mac Security Software that comes close to all the features and camera's that SecuritySpy supports.

This is a great application for monitoring a building, your home or office, locally or remotely via the builtin web server.

Not bad software, does everything I need, however, once I add over 3 wireless cameras, frame rates drop to almost 0-1 fps.

You're trying to stream 3 movies over a WiFi network? Are the cameras HD too?

Short and sweet.
Thank you for a great program, I have been using it for over a year now and have never had a glitch!
I can not say the same for non Mac owner friends that are trying to use programs for their security cameras.
Best of luck and keep up the fine work; you will always have my vote from across the pond.

Nice app. but way to expensive! Should be one price for all camera settings. $ 50 would be ok but only for at least 4 cameras. $ 252 for 8 cameras is ridiculous.....

If you own a location that requires 8 security cameras, finding the software that runs those cameras "ridiculously" prices at $250 makes you one cheap ass dude.

How about a text overlay that shows the outside IP of the cam or the computer it is connected to? Would be useful at times.
