  1. User Interface Improvements

    The preferences window seems very bleak (black with low key text) and providing very limited menu of options. Where is that long list of choices that appeared with the sales offer. Don't make users have to search to find the full capability of your product.

        • Human Motion Detection

          Human detection option for motion detection. When it comes down to it, I really only want to know about human activity. If there was some way for the software to recognize the human form moving and record that movement vs, say, a swaying tree.

          • Selective Motion Detection Areas

            The ability to block out an area of what the camera sees from motion detection. For example, the area where a flag is being blown around by the wind.

            • Option for recording minimum time once Motion/Audio is detected

              Option to recording minimum time once Motion/Audio is detected.
              So that you can set up a minimum recorder time as well once the camera is triggered, so it will record for a set time regardless if motion or audio is still picked up by the camera or mic. something like 10, 15, 30, 1minute to 5 minutes.

              • Keyboard shortcut

                Provide an easy way to hit a shortcut key and have a window pop up displaying the videos (ideally multiple cameras)

                • Count For Motion Detected Items

                  Have either a count or a flash of some kind to let yo know when it DOES detect motion - so you know to pull it down via my menu bar suggestion. So, I’ve got the app fired up, it’s running in the background in the menu bar and someone comes into my house. The menu bar icon would flash, I could click that and pop up the video window to see what’s going on.

                  Someone else has suggested "push notfications". I like the idea of a menu bar count.

                  • it would be great if there was a menu drop down that would show one or all of the camera from the top of the screen.

                    A menu drop down that would show one or all of the camera from the top of the screen. Most people (unless they have three monitors) don’t want to use up real estate on the screen monitoring unless something is going on. Would be cool if you could quickly click on it and have it come down displaying the video cameras.

                    • Audio only mode

                      I'd like an option to turn on or off both Video and Audio so one could only record audio.
                      In the device selection window, simply add 'no video' or 'no sound'
                      Thanks!

                          • Post-process script

                            1) Run a user script (AppleScript or shell) after each recording.
                            This allows custom services like push notifications (i.e. Faast.io) and converting .mov files to .mp4 or send the clip to a specific iMessage user or FTP; endless possibilities without cluttering the app's interface.

                            The script receives a timestamp, filepath and perhaps the amount of motion detected (percentage) if possible.

                            2) applescript / automator script either on recording-start and/or recording-finished would be great.

                            • Periscope Pro really needs a variable delay to start recording. The user should shave the capability to enter a value in seconds or minutes

                                  • Implement multicamera support

                                    1) Implement multicamera support
                                    2) Support more than 1 camera. Support for iSight camera AND at least one IP camera.
                                    3) Multi camera view in one pane (I have my Mac and several IP cameras configured and rather than have to keep switching between them, I'd like to see a single pane with an option either show 1, 2 or all of the cameras. Right click each pane for option to start recording, etc for that camera.)
