We have seen that webcams are generally used in offices, banks, colleges and many other places wherever they are concerned about keeping a check on the entries and exit. But all this process to too expensive and requires a lot of investment. Also, you might need a lot of technical support. This creates a hurdle because we can’t even compromise with the security levels. To handle the issue in a simpler and cost efficient manner I found a tool called Prog’z WebCamSpy. You can take continuous pictures with the help of the tool so that you do not miss any moment and save your money as well.
Porg’z WebCamSpy is a very small freeware of 435 KB only. It is a portable utility. It can capture pictures after specified period of time. So, you just have to specify the time after which you want to capture the images so that all the required information can be stored successfully. It is a user friendly tool. The snapshot below displays the user interface of the utility.
As shown there are three different kinds of capture options:
- Continuous Capture: It will continuously capture the images. By default, the time between two images is 2 seconds. Though, you can change it.
- Sequence Capture: It is similar to continuous capture. The difference is that it will stop capturing after specified number of images has been captured.
- Delayed Capture: It will capture images after every 5 seconds.
After selecting the requirement, click on capture to start shooting the images. To stop capturing, again click on the capture option. Also, if you have to carry the process you can minimize the interface to system tray so that it may not disturb you.
Go to Options menu to change the settings. The settings are sub-divided into three sections i.e. Capture, Tray Icon and Popup Menu. Firstly lets look at the options provided under the tab Capture. You can mention the image name. The format of the image can be either .jpg or .jpeg. The path of the default image directory will be shown which can be changed if required. The delay between shots for continuous capture and sequence capture can vary from 1 to 60. The shots number can vary from 2 to any desired number.
After that, in tray icon there are just few icons, along with the hint captions. After that, you have popup menu settings. It contains three menu items. They can be chosen as visible, disable or highlight.
The freeware has been tested on Windows 7, and it is also compatible with Windows XP and Vista.
