It is an interesting free (but not open source) program that allows you to transform a webcam into an easy-to-use security device. Through Yawcam, with a few clicks, it is possible to enable movement control on an area (obviously framed by the cam). If movement is detected, you can receive a notification (and video or sequence of photos) via email or ftp.
There are plenty of options that you can enjoy exploring and using. You can choose to enable motion detection only on a part of the framed area and adjust the sensitivity for motion detection.
This application available only for Windows operating system, simple installation just download the executable from this page (it weighs only 4.6 MB). Once the download is complete, just double click on the downloaded file to start the wizard.
