How To Convert WebCam To Spy Cam

Spy Cams are like one of the best way to keep an eye on the things happening at the place when you are not there. We can convert webcam to spy cam without any sort of extra hardware installations. In fact it is for free.

The only drawback would be unlike other professional spy cams, the webcams that we would use as spy cams wont be moving covering a lesser radius as compared to the actual spy cams.

So before you actually sit and read this, let me make this clear that when you convert webcam to spy cam, you would be in pursuit of making a stationary spy cam which detects any sort of movements and takes pictures of it.

Convert WebCam To Spy Cam

All you need to is install a small app called DiffRec. And download it and install it on your computer.

Once done, click on Select Webcam button, and there choose any device. Just make sure that the option that you choose makes the webcam working.

Once all this is done click on the Camera Positioned button and then on Start Detecting Changes button. This will activate the webcam.

And now click on the Save Differences button which would actually tell DiffRec that it needs to save the images whenever there is any change.

You keep the webcam stationary and whenever it sees any changes, it takes the picture and saves it. This is how you can use webcam as Spy cam.
