Motion Detector is a light-weight surveillance tool for your mac. Motion Detector continuously monitors the surrounding of your mac using your mac’s built-in iSight webcam (or any other external webcams supported by mac). When motion is detected (or when environment sound reaches a certain level), the app can start automatic recording and/or Email notification, so you will have physical records of what has happened.

To set up Motion Detector, simply point your mac’s webcam to the area you want to monitor, and start Motion Detector on the mac and leave it on. The app will start monitoring the area for you.
