SINGAPORE, Jan. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - GotoCamera http://www.gotocamera.com>, the award winning video monitoring service used by more than 100,000
customers in over 180 countries, has announced the release of its free
software for Apple Macintosh computers.
Conventional video monitoring systems require expensive new equipment to
be purchased and are often difficult for non-technical Internet
consumers to set up and use. GotoCamera is easy and works with the
standard USB and integrated webcams that consumers already own. It has
been designed for use by the "average Joe". Mark Shiels, a beta
customer, said, "It's so easy, my grandma could set it up."
Co-Founder and CEO Varun Arora said: "We all know Mac owners who have
upgraded and have old MacBooks, iMacs, and Minis that are now
under-used. GotoCamera gives these old Macs a new lease of life, by
transforming them into free home and small-office monitoring systems,
using the webcams already built into the computers, or even any
ordinary $20 USB webcam."
GotoCamera supports features like motion detection -- which can send a
video clip of an intruder directly to a customer's mobile phone via
SMS, in addition to sending it via email and storing it securely in the
cloud. GotoCamera also enables customers to turn on scheduled
recording, saving snapshots and videos automatically into the cloud at
a defined time. This feature was recently used by Kenneth Baker, a
teacher in Virginia, to catch a burglar in his home. He wrote, on
GotoCamera's Facebook wall: "Right before my eyes I saw pictures of
someone in my house! The time stamp was only a few minutes earlier. I
immediately left, called the police, and drove home. The police and I
arrived at the same time as the thief was just walking out the back
door. After a foot chase, the thief was caught. He already removed
$3,500 of property this time! Thankfully, your system allowed us to
catch him and recover the property."
Mac owners running Leopard, Snow Leopard, and Lion, can download the
free GotoCamera software from www.gotocamera.com. Free access apps for the iPhone and iPad are also downloadable from
the iTunes Store (keyword: GotoCamera).
The GotoCamera service is offered by Pechora Technologies, a
Singapore-based company. The service is made available directly to
customers worldwide via the Web, and also in partnership with leading
telcos, ISPs, webcam manufacturers such as Creative and Swann, and
GotoCamera makes video monitoring accessible for everyone, everywhere.
More than 100,000 customers in over 180 countries use GotoCamera to
easily and affordably monitor their homes, kids, pets, the elderly and
small businesses. For more information on GotoCamera, please visit http://www.gotocamera.com.
