What can you use the app for?

HighlightCam is a unique online service which can be used as a way to find out what’s happening at home when you’re not there. Instead of having to sit through hours of video when nothing actually happens you can watch the important seconds when there are people moving in the video. HighlightCam will strip the unnecessary moments out of the video so that you can easily find out what’s happening. It can take any live video stream and then analyze them. It will filter out any video content when there is no movement in the video. The segments of the video which are highlighted can then be viewed without any trouble. HighlightCam can also alert users when there is movement in the videos.
