Prague, Czech Republic – ZipZapMac today released Periscope Pro, an application that turns a Mac into a multi-featured video surveillance system. Most computer-based video surveillance software takes videos regularly at a pre-set interval, generating hundreds or even thousands of useless clips that have to be sorted through to find what the user wants. But, Periscope Pro can be set to shoot only when there is motion, that is, activity going on, capturing exactly what the user is looking for, saving enormous amounts of search time and storage.

Monitor From Anywhere:
By automatically uploading clips to a free DropBox account, the user can view clips anytime, anywhere to see what is happening – from a restaurant across town, an airport in another city, or even from the other side of the world.

Highly Flexible:
Periscope Pro can be setup in a less than a minute and the user can choose everything from the sensitivity of the motion detection, to clip length, to alternate recording mode, including timed and continuous mode, and even video resolution. It can be set to start recording at login, at launch, or it can be started manually from its control panel.

“We began with the idea of protecting our own Macs with our Spy Cam product by recording who was using them,” said Stanislav Kuptsov, Managing Director of ZipZapMac, “Then we saw many other uses, but they required a more flexible approach and selective filming. So, we created Periscope Pro to fill those needs,” he said.

Periscope Pro can be used to monitor everything from a filing cabinet in your office to the baby’s room – anywhere you want know when there has been activity and what that activity was. With its 1-click video library access, Periscope Pro makes it easy to find the clips you want to see.

System Requirements:
* OS X 10.6 or later
* 1.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Periscope Pro 1.0 is $19.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.
