All AbelCam functionality has been terminated October 8th 2019

Thank you for providing the BEST software I could find for monitoring my house, and my dog's safety. I have uninstalled all the other different softwares I tried - there was no comparison!

some times the software does not behave as expected.

Having limited resources, testing on the developers end is limited.

Some times the solution for a problem is simple.

AbelCam 3.3.0 and up contain a support tool which simplifies the steps below.
See Support Tool Support Tool Icon

Documentation helps to find problems.
Help to produce documentation:

In the Options configuration form check Debug Info (if the checkbox is not visible, check I am a AbelCam Expert )
