  1. Only activate on unlock

    Instead of taking snaps at predefined time intervals, surely it would be best to only take a snap when the machine is unlocked, e.g., when logging in after sleep or after the screensaver is deactivated. I'm assuming that the user has enough interest in security to have password protection enabled for both of these events; if they don't, then no end of photos will catch and stop an evildoer.

  6. start a video recording whenever motion is detected.

    Have the camera on all the time, monitoring the image with an algorithm. When motion is detected over a certain threshold, begin a video recording and save it once either: 1.) the video time out is reached, or 2.) the motion has stopped.

  9. it would be great, if the camera could shot 2 photos in sequence (about 3 seconds).

    The first photo is often no one seen, the second (3 seconds later) perhaps would show more.

  10. Default user ~ Mac

    well from after playing around with this (i'm still in highschool) i think it's best if there was an option when it can be triggered when lock /login screen from screen saver that typed the wrong password (without being obvious ) then just every 30 seconds etc when i'm using and would every time take a photo. And a on and off switch like temporary switch e.g Security on / off instead of quitting the whole programme

  11. recognize owners face so we don't have to delete our own pics each time

    If it recognizes the face of the owner and stopped taking pics of them. It would save a lot of time. Unless there is an option for that that I have not found yet?

  16. Stop green indicator for cam on iMacs

    Not sure if it's possible but if it can be disabled that would help hide Security Cameras existence.
