Seriously the previous comment is unfair. I tried nearly all the apps listed here. Even I purchased WebcamXP and Webcam Monitor. I discovered that they charge per IP camera on monthly basis... Only webcams are included in their base price. I quickly understood that commercial solutions would not be cost effective. My goal was to build a DIY home security system. YAVCAM is the most intuitive one. It works without fuss. Records video, sends e-mails, streams, executes exe... etc. 1- I installed enotify in my phone to hear very audible alarms when an email is sent by yawcam. 2- I launch an exe to fire up sirens and lights in the hause. 3- Recorded videos are shared in an onedrive folder and accessible anywhere in the planet . I got 8 cams working on it in different locations 5- I have a script who launches streaming window whenever an alert comes. 4- I can command an arduino by launching another exe. ( to do any other physical action)

The interface is clean and uncluttered. The most important feature is the following: Yawcam is easy to understand and bug free.

Windows 10 64 bit, works perfectly. Requires Java though.
