    That will keep the camera recording and I can view it hours later??

    I'm not really sure about that since the computer might go into sleep mode but that shouldn't stop the recording. Hopefully someone that has a Mac will be have to help you out.

    Lol! Great reference.

    I have never thought about trying this but maybe I'll try photo booth to see what happens, might use up all of the memory though.

    This makes me want to dig deeper to see what I can find online; maybe a program, that allows this.

    A Mac AppStore search for "security camera" turns up several hits. SpyCam looks promising for what you want. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spy-...mUvbUpU2175803

    I have an iMac and MBP, and I can record video in photobooth. Switch the effect over to video.

    Pulled this from google but I put another arrow pointing to where you switch from photo to video.

    hey I saw the post and the reference to p.a.4 and was wandering if the same would work for my MacBook Air with it having os Sierra. we got some people that love to snoop around to find what they can steal and I want to catch them in the act.
