ContaCam suitable especially in cases where you because of your own firewall or an incorrectly adjusted port forwarding in the router does not reach the webcam from the outside. Although the program does not solve the firewall problem, but it can upload all applicable record on request to a server or send out and e-mail notifications. Thus, a clever monitoring system from the combination of ContaCam and a webcam. On request, the invisible tool starts when Windows starts and immediately begin monitoring.

Clever features and easy to understand settings make it one of the best webcam tools on the market. The program is completely in German and can handle a large number of Webcams, so there is no reason not to at least once to try it.
