Traveling the world via screensaver can be both fun and mesmerizing with SurveillanceSaver. This simple screensaver displays cam feeds from the Axis Network cameras to your desktop from locations around the world. The more than 600 cameras vary in quality, but most offer an outdoor shot from a surveillance camera giving you a view of the surrounding area. We really like the ability to cycle through different locations around the world with live cams. We would have liked more options for switching cams and adjusting the amount of time spent at each location, but we appreciate this is an early version of the software. Overall, if you're looking for a unique screensaver with live views from all over the world, you will like this screensaver.

SurveillanceSaver is a Windows screensaver that shows live images of over 400 network surveillance cameras worldwide. A haunting live soap opera. It is the first release of ongoing experiments with network surveillance cameras.
This is an absolutely hypnotic service, even with it's obvious issues. I often go in to check mail and watch the screen saver instead. During my afternoon in South Florida I get many views of Norway and other places above the arctic circle. The midnight sun is a sight I never thought I'd see.
It would be nice to have some controls but the program runs fine like it is. one warning though, my friends with Vista have problems with the program hanging up and there is no easy way to fix it. XP works like a champ.
Mostly things uncontrollable by the program. Cameras with dirty lenses is the worst problem. Sometimes it just doesn't connect with no reason. Better identification of the view would be nice. HOWEVER,The bad is more than offset by the good!!
