One of the nice things about running the Documentation Doctor, is that I get to work on the sorts of products that actually do the things people expected computers to do, back in the 1980s!
Zone Trigger 1.8 is just such a product. It doesn’t just monitor webcams for movement, it actually lets you specify hotspots to trigger alarms and alerts. This is great if – for instance - a webcam monitoring the approaches to your vandal-prone front door overlooked a busy street.
I had great fun giving the Zone Trigger documentation a Basic Edit. I supplied the help in two formats: web pages with screenshots so potential customers can get a feel for the product; and a leaner .chm for use as online help.
Gratifyingly, Joe seems happy with the results:
Overall I am very satisfied, I think this is a huge tune up for my product. You went beyond technical writing and really took the time to know my product. I will definitely seek your help again. (You can quote me on this).
