    "Excellent Program"

    December 18, 2011  |   By sroark4780

    Version: Dorgem 2.1

    Pros

    Quick and easy to install
    The "Help" is useful
    I love the Motion Detection option
    It's great to have all the options and features available in a FREE application.
    You can adjust the interval between images.

    Cons

    The code options listed in the help section described as "Dutch system" doesn't seem to work for my English system. This took me some time to figure out because I didn't use the Help section.

    The ideas I have for improvements are already listed in the To Do List.

    Summary

    I wanted to use my laptop as a security camera. For some reason it wouldn't use my built in camera so I bought a $30 HD camera. I'm trying to catch someone cutting my Christmas lights.

    "Missing Features"

    January 20, 2010  |   By Silivrenion

    Version: Dorgem 2.1

    Pros

    Great for saving pictures repeatedly to the same location, as if checking like a security camera. Includes a preview window.

    Cons

    Program description said it saves and captures photos. I was looking for a snapshot software, not a camera security software. The program description is faulty.

    Summary

    Was not what I expected due to the program description missing information.

    "A great little program"

    April 1, 2009  |   By vreetan

    Version: Dorgem 2.1

    Pros

    It's simple.
    Does exactly what it says it does.
    Easy to set up.
    Very good help files.

    Cons

    Very sensitive. It will detect the smallest movement from anywhere in the frame.

    Summary

    If you want it to create unique file names use the %G & %g tags to add date and time stamps to the file name.

    Dorgem's no longer being developed or supported but its still a very good and stable program.

    "Works pretty well... except for FTP"

    March 5, 2009  |   By JM2009

    Version: Dorgem 2.1

    Pros

    Simple to use, very little setup needed

    Cons

    The FTP part doesn't really work.

    Summary

    Dorgem *will* upload an image via FTP to your root directory, but there's no way to upload an image to your chosen folder.

    The HELP file claims you can put the directory info in the filename box, but you can't. It says to use "%G" in place of the slashes when defining the FTP directory to use, but doing that simply results in Dorgem placing your images in your root directory with the time and/or date mixed into the filename. And if you try to define the upload folder using the "/" symbol like normal... Dorgem will fail to understand, and there will be an error when it tries to upload. This is frustrating, because if that one aspect worked, this would be a perfect program in all other ways.

    "Very good but no sensitivity control"

    September 29, 2006  |   By Drogyn

    Version: Dorgem 2.1

    Pros

    Very good peice of software, will support multiple cameras and store the data to an ftp server (incase someone steals your computer)

    Cons

    Doesn't have a sensitivity control, which would be good to prevent blowing leaves e.t.c.. from activating it.

    "It does what it claims to do!"

    May 10, 2006  |   By kb4cwr

    Version: Dorgem 2.1

    Pros

    I have been looking for years for a program that would save shots from a webcam at pre-set intervals, and this program does just that, and does it well. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

    Cons

    It took me a while to figure out save shots with a time-tag as the file name, but the "HELP" file did was it was supposed to do to...HELP. Somebody with a bit more computer-savvy probably wouldn't have any trouble at all.
