Works great. The quality and reliability of this software is the main reason why I dumped my Nest cams with their limited utility.

This is an amazing product, by far the best available for Mac or PC. Works with hundreds of cameras and records in ultra high quality, maximizing your security budget and making sure your business or home is protected. Make no mistake this is professional gear, although super easy to use and simple to setup. I've been using for years and installing for friends. They are also amazed by the quality. The phone app makes it all the better with notifications and secure remote access, this is clearly the only option.

I have been using Security Spy since version 1. This new App is so easy. All you need is your username and password. I had 2 iPhone and 2 iPad set up in maybe 10 minutes. Plus as a bonus it works on the Apple TV version 4. I was on my Apple TV and saw it under purchases, downloaded it and it was just as easy as the iPhone and IPad to set up. Overnight I can view my cameras on 5 new devices and that doesn't include Macbooks, iMacs, and the rest. They did a good job on this. Try it out.

SecuritySpy continues to be great software, through the new version 4.0.9. I have used the analog cameras for over 10 years and have been able to continue using the now somewhat outdated cameras and a/d converters all along. SecuritySpy seems to offer an endless set of ways to use the program. Lately, as a new user of network cameras, I find the features even more interesting. The ability to drill down into settings to set up a camera is impressive. But, most of the time a given network camera has already been set up by SecSpy profiles; this makes it very easy to get the camera working. A bit about software support should be noted. BenSoftware has a lot of easily understood explanations of issues, setup, problem solving on their website. I go through them carefully and usually get my answers there. But, if I'm stuck, I have had very helpful replies quickly from the company. SecuritySpy offers the ability to easily look at camera video and audio on smartphones. I use and iPhone and am running the new SecuritySpy for iOS, Apple TV, etc. This free companion really broadens the usefulness of the security system. All in all, the software is terrific!

This program is pricey, but you get what you pay for. The author has kept SecuritySpy updated and working smoothly on MacOS Sierra, and that is far more than others can say. I run a 12-camera system into my Mac Pro at home, and the effect on system responsiveness is barely noticeable. Contrast that with other programs that either crash or cause your Mac to grind to a halt, and the choice is clear.

I have been using SecuritySpy for years and it hurts a bit to write this review. It has always been expensive and even though I have to pay 149 pounds to upgrade just on a year ago, I thought it was worth it - until now that is. I also bought 16 camera license for work at the same time (Aug 2015). Personally I only needed 1 extra camera (9 in total) but you can only buy 1,4,8,16 licenses. But now version 4 has released and less than a year passed since I purchased but yet both are not eligible for upgrade. Version 3 is not longer supported so I fully expect it to break with the next release of OS X. I have no problem paying a premium price for a quality product but can't help feeling ripped off by this greedy attempt to force more money out of existing users. If you look on Bensoft's web site you will see that you are only entitled to updates for 6 months. So basically your investment can be devalued by 65% in 6 moths which I think is unreasonable. Now if the update included face or human recognition and not just 64bit (which was dues long ago!!) it maybe worth paying for some real benefit. But right now you are being forced to pay (and a lot) just to keep the app current with OS X releases. So sorry Ben but this is just poor judgment.

The app works well, but the interface is very outdated and it's way, way overpriced. £29 for a single camera license is steep, but when you start looking at multiple camera licenses it's just a joke.

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. http://store.bensoftware.com/store-securityspy?currency=USD Back to Zoneminder for free.

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.

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.
