Webcams are a blast to use when making video calls or taking and sharing photos, but these are also quite useful for surveillance. However, most webcam apps are very demanding on a computer’s system resources, leading to major slowdown. This is hardly ideal for those looking to setup a surveillance camera for their entrance or child’s room. Simple Webcam Capture was created to meet this sort of need.
Simple Webcam Capture is a very lightweight application that functionally lessens a webcam’s demand on the computer’s CPU by turning off the webcam between image captures, which the user can set the rate of. These images can be saved as either BMP or JPEG.
Besides this nifty ability, Simple Webcam Capture has a number of other useful features, including the ability to caption images, access through the command line, control through hotkeys and more.
