MENLO PARK, Calif., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sighthound, Inc. today announced the release of Sighthound Video 2.2, the latest version of the advanced home video surveillance software which uses computer vision to distinguish people and objects in video.

Sighthound's powerful yet easy-to-use software turns webcams, Android phones and IP cameras into intelligent home video security systems without being locked in to vendor DVR costs, as is the case with some plug-and-play systems. In addition to giving users full control over their videos, Sighthound Video has the ability to detect and differentiate humans from animals or other objects and greatly reduce the number of false positives and unnecessary alerts sent to users.

Sighthound Video 2.2 is easier to install and use, and sets the stage for many features to come. The introduction of user accounts provides users with access to the full Pro license version of the product, allowing them to test multiple HD cameras before buying. It also makes it easier for users to upgrade from the Starter Edition and to manage licenses.

Sighthound Video 2.2 has three versions - Starter, Basic and Pro. The Starter version, with lower resolution for one camera, is free. The Basic and Pro editions, which add HD video, multiple cameras, remote access, export to the cloud, custom scripts and more, are $60 and $250, each including 12 months of software support and major version upgrades.

New for version 2.2:

    --  Easier license installation and management with Sighthound accounts
    --  Free Pro Trial for all Starter Edition users
    --  GUI improvements including easier reviewing of HD camera clips
    --  Turning an Android device into a security camera now easier with IP
        Webcam pre-configured
    --  Remote access by iPhone, Android and browser now becomes a feature of
        the paid versions
    --  Rewritten OSX webcam library, improving CPU utilization and adding
        support for new built-in camera models (Air mid 2013, Pro late 2013,
        iMac late 2013 and newer)
