    "SPYWARE"

    December 29, 2007   |   By ilyapl

    Version: Crime Catcher 3.1

    Pros

    It works well. Easy to use, i have a good webcam, Logitech 5000 pro. So crimecatcher does a good job, the new version 3.22 sends emails to gmail ect.

    Cons

    There are a lot of reports on the internet that crimecatcher is a SPYWARE, and is a severe threat to your computer safety. Add www before the following line

    paretologic.com/resources/definitions.aspx?remove=Crime%20Catcher

    Too bad i bought this product, and it actually worked...

    On the otherhand, Softpedia, gave it a 100% clean from spyware test.. add www before the following line

    softpedia.com/get/Internet/WebCam/Crime-Catcher.shtml

    "False Alerts - Very Big Problem"

    April 29, 2007   |   By quescout

    Version: Crime Catcher 3.1

    Pros

    Easy to use. Good control over what is emailed and FTP.

    Cons

    The motion sensor set low will will trigger nothing, one step more sensitive and you will get false alterts. This was not realised until I paid the $25.00. Heavey investigation showed the sensor is set off by tiny vibations such as aircraft noise, a big truck in the distance or even a light thump on the wall near by. I then tried WEBcam Monitor - this software worked many times better.

    October 10, 2006   |   By jumpman719

    Version: Crime Catcher 3.1

    Cons

    I purchased the full version for $25 and it did not work. I tried emailing for tech support and never heard a response after 4 emails. Find another program!

    "Works ok, UNLESS you need multiple camera support. No email support, major bugs."

    May 26, 2006   |   By omadawn

    Version: Crime Catcher 3.1

    Pros

    easy to use, captures images when needed. saves to disk, sends to FTP.

    Cons

    Major bug with multiple camera support, and I use a purchased version. I'm not sure email sender works, it didnt work as far as I can tell (I did configure and test it).

    I sent several emails about the multiple cameras problem about a week ago, still no answer. I dont think anyone checks, but they did accept my credit card when purchased to program..

    "poor support and email server is poor"

    December 09, 2005   |   By bayareakarl2005

    Version: Crime Catcher 3.1

    Pros

    Very simple to use and understand

    Cons

    This software will not send to your email accounts. Most SMTP server now requires authentication and this software will not do it. So if you plan to send security images to Yahoo, hotmail, Gmail, Earthlink forget about it. They all require authentication and this software doesn't do it. What use is it to have a software for servallence but only stores it on your HD.
