    Anyone know if there's a webcam app that'll take a photo if there is any movement and then send these photos as emails.

    Or have the photos or video saved to a Dropbox account where they can be accessed.



    Many thanks

    Not Dropbox, but see if Alfred does what you want.

    I'm not suggesting against using a spare phone as a security webcam, and that Alfred app certainly looks like it will take care of what you were asking for but just as an alternative, you can buy a webcam for around $50 that has WiFi connectivity, allows you remote control to tilt and pan, allows you to set different sensitivity levels, and what I see as its most notable feature, includes infrared LEDs so it can sense and take photos in dark rooms.

    Have you looked at Perch?

    It claims to support some advanced motion alerts.
