Types of Device Setups
WebCam Monitor supports various setups using a single camera or multiple cameras attached to your computer.
Single Device Setup
The simplest type of setup is to connect a single capture device to your computer. You can then configure WebCam Monitor to use this device for monitoring.
Setting Up One or More Devices for Monitoring
WebCam Monitor enables you to use one or more devices for monitoring. If you have multiple cameras connected to your computer then you can configure WebCam Monitor to use all of them in a cycle. Every device or device pair monitors for 60 seconds and then monitoring begins with the next one in the cycle.
