Rear View Mirror is motion detection program that can work with any web camera and shows alerts with a pop-up or notification sound. It can also work with remote network cameras that support MJPEG streaming. It was originally written as a way to use a web camera as a mirror in an office cubical, alerting someone when another person walks into his or her cube.
Start Rear View Mirror by clicking on its icon.
Right click on the system tray icon and create a new video source. You can use a camera connected to your PC or a remote HTTP camera. For now, we're going to use a local camera.
Select your web camera from the list.
Give your camera a name.
The camera window will now popup on your screen.
You can set options for all the video sources you create, or select different options per video source.
Options include playing an alert sound, recording motion tracking events and changing the viewer transparency.
