You must have read the stories of computer thieves being apprehended when the owner has activated their computer webcam and captured the faces of the swine that broke in and absconded with  it. We all cheer and champion the technology when we read a story like that, don't we? Well, Cam On Duty is a security application for iPhone that allows you to turn your IP camera or webcam to turn into a home monitoring system without having to have a degree in computer technology.
 
Cam On Duty allows you to find new possibilities to use your IP camera by allowing you to transform your ordinary camera into a home monitoring security center. Whats more, you don’t even need to have any complicated IT knowledge as everything is done automatically. There is no need for any additional hardware to store recordings or even a PC computer and your live video stream and recording are available from any part of the world at any time thanks to cloud storage. It even supports the distinctive and very useful PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) feature that allows you to remote control where the camera is looking and tracking objects in real time. While other security vendors provide their own dedicated webcams Cam On Duty supports popular webcams so you don’t have to buy a brand new one if you already own a webcam. If you don’t have one of the supported cameras you can buy it on the market cheaply whereas with many other dedicated solutions you have to pay for the cost of research and development on top of the purchase of the cam.
 
Whether you want to protect your home from burglars when away on holiday, keep an eye on what your partner gets up to on his day off or just want to see what the pets get up to when you are at work all day, Cam On Duty is a very easy to use and high quality global service that will serve the purpose. Thank goodness you don't need an IT degree to set it up and it supports a low cost webcam that you may well own already. You can view your video on any available network and from anywhere in the world and your recordings are secure and safe with only you able to view them. So now you don't have to race out and buy expensive monitoring equipment for your home security - use the stuff you already own.
