iGotcha lets you see, monitor and record what's happening at home, office or anywhere when you're not there, even see what the kids or pets are up to. iGotcha sends an SMS text alert and an email with photo and video when it detects motion or movement caused by a burglar, thief or intruder (or the kids or pets).
Now with face detection! iGotcha has the option to trigger if it detects a face and will ignore pets. Please note that face detection is experimental - it may not work on all devices due to the differences in Android hardware.
iGotcha is a professional quality security camera app with biometric face detection using advanced Computer Vision (CV) technology for greater accuracy and reliability - rather than the basic bitmap comparison used by other apps.
