Proctoring software should be used as a last resort, not only because students who intend to cheat still find workarounds even when being proctored, but also because it can add stress to students who do not intend to cheat and communicate a lack of trust in students. It is worth considering the trade-off between dissuading students who intend to cheat and potentially undermining the rapport you have developed with the rest of your students.
If you have considered the other options and believe that proctoring is the best solution for your needs, communicate this decision, as well as any corresponding technology requirements, to your students at the very beginning of the semester.
