SecuritySpy is NVR (Network Video Recording) software that allows you to quickly set up an effective video surveillance system of any size, from home or office installations to large-scale professional systems with hundreds of cameras.

Manage all types of cameras in an overview on all your Apple devices.

SecuritySpy allows you to manage multiple IP cameras simultaneously using just one Mac, all with great performance. Setting up the platform is super easy. From adding the camera to configuring recording and enabling remote monitoring, everything can be done with just a few clicks.

Motion detection by AI

SecuritySpy uses AI in the form of deep neural networks that can accurately detect people, vehicles and animals. The custom AI is trained using hundreds of thousands of real CCTV images to produce highly accurate classification results (typically >96% accuracy for human detection and >97% accuracy for vehicle detection).

By using AI object detection in this way, false positive detections (for example, a swinging tree causing a trigger) can be drastically reduced or even eliminated.

All analysis is performed locally on your Mac and accelerated by Apple's powerful CoreML platform; images are not sent to an internet server for processing. This protects your privacy and ensures high performance and low latency.

Homekit integration

Another great benefit of using SecuritySpy is that it integrates with HomeKit. This means you can start recordings, schedule events, or even set rules to control HomeKit accessories in response to movements detected by the cameras. Everything is processed and stored locally on your Mac, so you have the best privacy and no recurring fees.

Other SecuritySpy features include iOS and tvOS apps for remote monitoring, synchronized viewing of multiple cameras, and an intuitive dashboard that gives you an overview of everything you need to know.

Works with Apple Home HomeKit

User interface

Flexible recording features offer high-quality continuous or motion-activated recording, while emails, notifications and alarms can also be triggered by motion detection. Remote monitoring features allow you to view and manage your system from anywhere in the world.

SecuritySpy features smart motion detection powered by AI. Deep neural networks intelligently analyze video to decide when to activate recording and notifications. This provides a high degree of accuracy and can eliminate false positive detections.

SecuritySpy's user interface is carefully designed and easy to use.

Each camera's schedule can be customized for recording and generating notifications at different times of the day or week, or based on built-in schedules such as day or night time.






Alarms, emails, scripts and iOS notifications can all be triggered when motion is detected.






Data visualizations that give you an overview of system statistics such as CPU usage, recording speed, and memory and disk performance.




Highly optimized


Fast multithreaded code, and extensive use of hardware acceleration, provides blazing fast performance with low CPU usage. Runs natively on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs.




No mandatory subscriptions.


The software you buy never expires; the only ongoing cost is optional low-cost renewal support, which provides updates and technical help.
