I'm comparing this FREE program to a trial version of SecuritySpy $50 shareware. ISentry wins the price war. ISentry lacks a camera control panel for setting brightness, contrast, saturation, etc. ISentry camera selection was "hidden" in the menubar icon, while most of the controls are right on the preview image window. ISentry does NOT allow you to close the preview window. ISentry uses more processor power than SecuritySpy does.

I would like to see the ability to run the program with the preview window closed, One video file per day option, date/time/camera information overlaid on the recording, and better video file naming.

I was very impressed by the install, run, and done simplicity of this program with the MINOR issue of finding how to select from a different camera also connected to the computer.

One issue with the stability arose when I disconnected an, unrelated, USB item. ISentry switched back to the built in ISight.

lol .. they might be winning the price war, only they may die of starvation due to not being able to afford any food? :D

Don't get me wrong .. I like a freebie too, only I don't have a problem with Devs charging a few bucks so they can at least survive to maintain and upgrade their software. We need these people alive.
