Whether you want to observe wildlife in your garden or protect your property turn your iPhone into a motion detecting video camera with live feed to your desktop.

Motion Detector Cam uses a complex mathematical algorithm to spot movement and record both an HD video* and lo-res photo. To use simply start the app and place the device in a stationary position.

You can now access a live camera feed from your desktop using an internet browser.

Please note the device must be still to detect motion and record a video. To stop detecting motion or recording a video simply pick up the device.

We recommend plugging your device into a power source for prolonged use.

The screen is always on

To be a real surveillance cam, the screens needs to turn off during recording in order not to eat all your battery life and not emit any light during recording.

Isn't saving

The record function seems to be turning on, but it doesn't seem to be saving the videos. It's a simple app, which is good, but it has to save the video before it gets a full rating...two stars for the idea and if it's fixed it could possibly be 4-5 stars for the simplicity, price, and function.

I paid only a dollar but if I click on it and it doesn’t load to the app then it’s a waste of money🤬
