Anyone use spycams or other monitoring system?

Just wondering if any of you guys have any kind of video surveillence around your home/other areas.

I was thinking the other day and decided that it wouldn’t hurt to have some extra security around my place. I guess i’m just curious as to how hard it would be to set up a wireless camera or two and have them be able to record video by either a VCR, or be able to record the video on my laptop computer.

I’m sure there are some security freaks out there that have been in my shoes :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for any input

I got a camera which is pointed at my street, but it’s not really for surveillence.

Right… spy cameras for “security” :wink:

X10 got plenty of stuff for that particular purpose.
Even with the latest logitech webcams it’s possible to use them as security devices. (motion detection webcam software for instance).

Yea, i was doing some searching and found some stuff on X10.

And yes, bcn_246, only for security purposes :wink:

I put webcams, old Intel Pro and Kodak DVC, on top of my CRT in the living room and my boys CRT in their bedroom. Sometime I activate the webcam with Yahoo Messenger via Remote Desktop from my office, usually after school around 4PM, just to check, for security purposes :smiley:

I think I need one more webcam in our bedroom, especially that can see in the dark, for “other purposes” :bigsmile:

Just like we only copy stuff for “backup purposes”, and SuprNova was for “educational purposes” :bigsmile:

I decieded to add the one X10 missed out :stuck_out_tongue:

I have to stop working for so long on the images I post…

I am planning to install a cam in the living room, so I watch what our cat is doing when we aren’t at home. I still got a few old webcams lying around and I got a server that’s always up, so why not? :wink:

i thought about the same thing to watch my friends when i leave the room im not sure they can be trusted to leave stuff alone :a :eek:


#11

Lol.
Couldn’t be good friends if they can’t be trusted.

Friends of friends, maybe :wink:

I don’t have one but we have a pretty nice system at the home office where I work, It monitors the entrance to the property, front door, two cameras on the pool. All can be monitored at any television in the house.

#14

#15

At the moment I’ve got two Axis IP cams for surveillance, 1 is hooked up to a Infra-red sensor. Images are stored on a hard disk and transmitted over the internet. Previously I used the http://www.gotchanow.com/ software, which is superb.
