Vitamin D – free webcam security software promises more accuracy, fewer wrongful arrests


The new Vitamin D security webcam software comes with ‘smart video’, which translates into motion sensing technology that can tell the difference between a cat and a burglar. Sounds good. There’s also a bunch of other features designed to make it simple to keep tabs on your mansion while you’re away, and the best bit is it comes in a free version (for 1 camera) as well as commercial ($49.00). Eat that villainous persons. [Via CrunchGear]

 Motion detection can be triggered by swaying branches, pets, or even light changes from clouds. Professional-grade security systems track objects but cost thousands of dollars and require expert calibration and tuning. Vitamin D Video uses a revolutionary form of intelligent computing, based on how the brain works, that can outperform state-of-the-art systems in many real world cases.
