iSentry should work with any USB or built-in camera supported by MacOS. Support of IP cameras need to be tested on a case-by-case basis. You can test whether your IP camera is supported by using the free version of iSentry. Click here to learn how to set up the video input device. Below are the links to several cameras which we tested and are known to work well with iSentry. If your IP camera is compatible with iSentry but is not listed here, please report this to us so that we can update this list for the benefit of other users.
