Watchful turns your Mac or iOS device into a security camera. Your footage is securely stored on your device and in your private iCloud storage so that you can view it on your other devices. No account setup is necessary if you already use iCloud.
In addition to recording videos and taking snapshots at an adjustable interval, Watchful also makes time-lapse videos to give you a convenient overview.
You can configure how long you want to keep your security camera footage, according to your needs and available storage. You'll see an estimate of the storage you need so that you can stay within your limits or increase your available storage.
We continually update the app with new features and fixes.

Ratings and Reviews
A well-made app
This app is a great way to use your computer as a security camera or view footage from your other devices. I like the fact that the videos are stored in iCloud. It gives me peace of mind to be able to check in on my home while I'm away. The time lapse videos are also a nice feature.
Trying to link iPad with iPhone
I just downloaded the app for my iPad and iPhone and was hoping I could use one as a recording device and the other for watching the the live recording but I don’t see anything that would let me do just. This app looks like it’s a still working progress and I hope that it will all come together as a perfect app I’m gonna stay and see that come together. 🤙👍🏼🤟🏽💯
