I'm curious to know if anyone has heard of any software that can detect motion through the iSight, and when it does, start recording. I remember an application many many years ago that did this, but it ran in OS9/8/7? I have no idea what it was called and haven't been able to find something similar. I'll be going on a cruise in April and would like to have my Macbook Pro setup on the desk (locked to something of course) and have the application running.

We believe someone had stolen some money we had hid away on the last cruise we went on but weren't completely certain. This would take the guess work out of it and also have some incriminating evidence if something did go missing. People definitely aren't lying when they talk about this happening on cruise ships.

I believe EvoCam can do this.

edit: SecuritySpy looks like it supports this as well.
