is it possible to use my WebCam as a security cam while I'm not at home and have my computer locked at the same time?


I got LifeCam 3.5

I watched some tutorials on about this, but in all of them, the account needs to be logged in to be able to do that.


What I want to accomplish is that it would keep recording when the account the program is turned on is locked, and a different account is in use.

Any help?

Great question, but I believe that you can only do this with an IP camera and not a webcam. If you want to know more about them, check out the IP camera FAQ and overview over at the iWatchLife website - a company that specializes in webcam and IP camera wireless home security.

Whereas webcams require your account to be connected, IP cams do not and overall they are of a much better quality. Hope this helps, good luck!
