Securing our privacy is important to everyone. We’ve featured dozens of DIY security projects in the past including a spy van, money stash, and hidden passageways but this one doesn’t even require any additional hardware if you’ve got a webcam Highlight cam is free software you can install to guard your PC and act as a silent security guard for your office space.
- Motion alert notifications sent via email
- Off-site backup in case the intruder takes the computer
The software is dirt simple to install. After that, you’ll be asked to take a still recording of your workspace with no movement. Then you can set the software to begin recording when motion is detected. It’s so simple your grandmother could do it!
If Highlight cam doesn’t work out, Motion Detection and Yawcam are other options you may consider. The free version of Highlight cam will probably suit your security needs for now but there is also a paid version which has additional features.
