Thereafter whenever the user is connected to the website, pictures will be taken randomly and continuously (random time is customizable, for this demonstration is set at 25s mean ± 15s variance). These pictures are sent to our servers in the cloud. SMOWL management module stores and analyses the images. These images are compared with the model that has been created at registration time and has been updated with recent positive images.

The blue SMOWL tab, visible on the up-right corner can be displayed (hold mouse button on it) to check the last image the application has taken. Furthermore, using menu controls, the users can update registration images (going back to the first step again) or change their custom options whenever they want

Dynamic lateral bar

(f) Sidebar visual alert shows, in a little window on the up-right corner, that the application is taking a picture. This option does not interrupt the navigation through the website. Users can disable/enable audio alerts by clicking the button in the sidebar.

Remember steps 1 to 3 must be completed only the first time the user enters into the system. Once the user is registered and custom options are selected, the application starts at step 4 after website log in.
