Vitamin D is a free video surveillance software (currently in its beta stage) that lets you set up your desktop webcam, your laptop camera, or even a network camera, into the perfect surveillance camera.
You may even install multiple cameras and monitor more than one location. It constantly records, but saves and alerts you only when a relevant object is detected, eliminating false positives.
The application is small (26 MB) in size and very easily to set up. Once installed, you simply select the cameras that Vitamin D recognizes on you computer and start recording.
If you’re a shopkeeper who wants to keep an eye on things, a concerned parent who wants to keep an eye on their little children, or simply a cautious house-owner who thinks it’s better to be safe than sorry, than go over to Vitamin D’s webpage and download this wonderful application right now!
