How to Test if Surveillance WebCam Software is compatible with your own video capture device.
Hauppauge and Logitech are good quality cameras and drivers, popular, widely available and are not expensive. Logitech USB cameras range in price from $29-$99 US - see www.logitech.com. Hauppauge WinTV Go PCI capture boards cost about $59 US. These are good for using with this software and attaining the end goal of Video Monitoring.
Note: Multi-camera configurations are supported on a variety of video capture cards or video capture devices which have RCA or BNC analog video input connectors e.g. 4 Port Video Capture Card, WinTV Go PCI Video Capture Card with our video multiplexer card. To use 8 or 11 cameras our 8 port video multiplexer card is needed for the video capture device. Or use our multi-port video capture cards to use 4,8, or 11 cameras. Multi-camera configurations are not support on USB connectorized cameras which plug directly into a USB port e.g. Logitech cameras - in this case Surveillance WebCam software will work with the one USB camera, but cannot be expanded to more than one camera. If using the Hauppauge WinTV Go be sure to use the PCI type of card.
