SecuritySpy DDNS changes and upgrade offer

April 6th, 2017 by Nathan Mount

In order to support the ever-growing number of Mac users taking advantage of SecuritySpy, its creator “Ben Software” have had to make significant changes, including moving the whole system to a new faster server. Unfortunately, this means that the free DDNS service will stop working for SecuritySpy version 2.x and 3.x users after 30th April 2017.

A DDNS address gives your server a static host-name on the Internet, which in most cases is needed for remote access because internet connections are usually provided with a dynamic IP address that can change from time to time.

To continue using SecuritySpy’s DDNS service, you will need to upgrade to the latest version, SecuritySpy 4. To help users transition to the new version, they are offering a special 50% discount off the full price of SecuritySpy version 4 for a limited time only, when upgrading from any previous version of SecuritySpy*. To take advantage of this offer, simply visit the SecuritySpy Upgrade Store.

SecuritySpy version 4 is a major upgrade that was released recently (the latest version being 4.1.2) that has many significant improvements, including:

  • A completely re-designed and enhanced user interface
  • Fully-featured official iOS and tvOS apps
  • Enhanced capture and scheduling features
  • 64-bit support for much-improved speed and memory capacity
  • New improved Browser for synchronised multi-camera playback
  • Big performance and efficiency improvements
  • Web server speed, functionality and security improvements
  • Two-way audio
  • Hundreds of other smaller improvements and new features

There have been significant changes in this new version, so refer to this guide for existing users to help you quickly become familiar with the new software.

If you are new to SecuritySpy and interested in purchasing it for you current Mac setup, we provide the full SecuritySpy 4 suite on our store. Available with a number of different camera licences (single, 4, 8, 16 and unlimited licences) that support a wide range of IP security cameras.

If you don’t want to upgrade to the latest version of SecuritySpy but still need a DDNS address, there are paid services you can use such as No-IP or Dyn.

*The discount applies when upgrading to version 4 with the same number of cameras as your current license. This special 50% offer is valid until 10th May 2017 – after this date the discount will be reduced to 35%. If you purchased SecuritySpy on or after 21st December 2015, your upgrade is completely free of charge – simply visit the upgrade store to obtain your new license code.
