We all know that nowadays maximum shopkeeper installed security camera in their shops for capture all activities . Not only businessman even simple people i.e for personal purpose (in Home) security camera is used regularly. You don’t believe that a man installed security camera in there bed room for security because they had Black money in their bedroom.
So now you understood that importance of Closed Circuit camera (CCTV). if you are businessman then its ok you can purchase costly but if you are using it for personal use then it can be costly for you because for CCTV you must have to purchase DVR,Camera,wire and installation charges etc. but if you have a old PC and internet connection then you can make you own CCTV camera without any charges. just you need Open source security camera software.
According to my experience i found best Open source security camera software is Ispy.
Ispy Connect is best CCTV camera software. if you have Laptop then you can test easily. all facility is available which is in paid CCTV camera even you can monitor by internet on Android mobile or tablet or computer (remotely) .
