 |  Version: iSpy 5.6.8

Pros

It is easy to get started. The concept overall allows for great functionality, security, monitoring and surveillance are of the utmost importance in today's society, and this lets you do that. I would most surely recommend this.

Cons

Nothing, its Great

"Worried I installed a virus"

September 22, 2013  |  By compmuseme

 |  Version: iSpy 5.4.5

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

After reading forum posts and the FAQ on the iSpyConnect website, the software sounded free and like it did not send information to external servers. However, after installing and attempting to view my local camera locally, a message told me creating an account on their website was required.

Summary

I think these guys promoted their software as free really well, spamming comments and forums. I am now spending some paranoid time removing the iSpy software and looking for hidden programs that try to remain after uninstalling. Very disappointed with the software, and myself for being duped into installing it.

"Ridiculously slow"

May 22, 2013  |  By recompile

 |  Version: iSpy 5.0.8

Pros

It's easy to setup and use. Has a great set of features that more than adequately meet my needs.

Cons

(I'm running it on a new computer, less than a year old, fresh Windows 7 64 install, and yet...)

It's slow. Really slow. The UI locks up constantly for no apparently reason. It's also very CPU intensive, which is surprising considering how little I'm actually asking it to do (record 1 frame every 6 seconds.)

It's not clear from the UI when it's idle and when your scheduled tasks are running, when it's recording and when it's not, etc. You really can't tell what it's doing right now, what task is scheduled next, or if a task is running.

Some other UI problems: I've yet to be able to select and delete an individual recording. I haven't found a way to resize the camera views, though that may be do to the biggest UI problem: the interface locks up every time you try to do anything! You have no idea if it's trying to carry out your request or if it's just decided to not respond for a little while. Clicking barely works, let alone click and drag to resize!

Summary

It's easy to setup and it's loaded with features, which are also easy to understand and use.

The horrible performance, however, makes it virtually unusable in practice.

If there's an alternative, I'd love to hear it. This can't possibly be the best option available.

"Totally brilliant software"

May 28, 2012  |  By Apparilla

 |  Version: iSpy 4.2

Pros

Does anything you can think of and a whole load more besides.

Cons

Nothing that I can think of

Summary

I tried pretty much everything out there before trying ispy and wish i'd found it first, it just blows the competition out of the water.

"32 out of 35 Five Star ratings is a Miracle!"

April 15, 2012  |  By PARRISHNELSON

 |  Version: iSpy 4.0.1

Pros

It's simple with CNET's Download Installer to try iSpy for yourself. If you don't want a Blekko toolbar for your browser you're still good peep. It's also super easy to become a CNET member: apparently any number of times. Join In and take DeveloperInABox down.

Cons

How many people work at the iSpy office? I find it sheerly oddsome that all but 3 of the preceding reviewers could not come up with a single con-like suggestion to help iSpy become better than whatever it is. No one asked for fancy file format support, or larger easy-to-read menu fonts, or better Firefox integration, or anything but a surreal glow. Odd? Hmm,

Summary

Guys, this is just the pre-game... -Once we're at the software convention, watch your back at all times.

"not a real free product"

November 29, 2011  |  By lakke2120

 |  Version: iSpy 3.4.3

Pros

lots of features

Cons

free features are too minimal and to view online cost a monthly fee. set up is not for the novice user and difficult to understand

Summary

would be worth it if the free version allowed online viewing
