  1. 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.)

        • 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.

                • 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!

                  • Add option to start in candid mode

                    It would be really handy if periscope would be able to start in covert mode.

                    • 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.

                      • motion detection alarm

                        it would be great if there was an option to play sirens or alarm when a motion is detected, this would help to gather attention to others. a combination or mobile alert and alarm on the local system would be good to scare the person.

                        • full screen mode!

                          I think it is very important have the possibility to have the program in "full screen mode"

                            • Allow GoPro camera as source

                              GorPro cameras have built-in wi-fi, it would be great to be able to record from a GoPro, more than one if you do implement the multi-camera capability

                              • Periscope should also make pictures as an alternative to video

                                In case of thievery it takes sometimes seconds until the filming mac is disconnected from energy. If Periscope Pro would have made pictures instead of filming video, those pictures could have been uploaded successfully to dropbox in this time. A video would be corrupted by the disconnection of energy and no upload could have been made.
                                So - if you want to use Periscope Pro as an anti-burglar-tool - pictures would be a nice alternative to video.

                                Thanks for considering
