Sighthound Video vs Blue Iris opinions
pros, cons and recent comments
Sighthound is extremely basic really. It doesn't support PTZ, it only supports AAC for audio on Mac (does support a few others on Windows), it doesn't support mechanical zooms...basically, anything your camera does more than video recording, Sighthound does not support.
I think it is a pretty good bit of software and one day may be amazing, but it is currently nothing better than an alpha product still developing many features that most other NVR Software packages already support.
Xeoma is justly one of the best video surveillance software. Up-to-date design, user-intuitive interface, flexible settings is the formula for successful video surveillance. Xeoma webcam software is priceless peace of mind and simple control over time and space
