I have been using the stock and free TRENDnetVIEW Pro Software, which comes with my cameras to do my video surveillance. The free version cannot be setup as windows service and after I inquire with Trendnet I found out that I have to purchase paid version, which is actually not produced by Trendnet but by Luxriot and is quite expensive for the average home owner. I searched for alternatives and found out Xeoma. They have a trial, which allow you to test the system. The software supports a variety of cameras and Trendnet cameras that I have work without issues. Their interface is a lot more modern than traditional systems and it takes some time to get used to it, but it utilizes the screen space a lot more efficiently and once you get used to it, everything is a lot easier to setup and track. Xeoma has a variety of modules, which are very advanced. You can setup license place and face recognitions. Object detector for abandon objects. Object tracking and privacy masking to name a few. What I found very useful is that in the motion detection module I can adjust the size of the object that would trigger the motion recording. With the old software, I cannot do that and moving leaves or sun shadow would trigger recording, which is useless and would make it a lot harder to preview recordings. I would definitely recommend that software for its features, ease of use and affordability. I give it five stars.
Pros: Ease of use, multiple modules, powerful functions and affordable price
Cons: It takes some time to get use to the interface
