Home Security Cameras
Recently I was broken into, and have found it quite upsetting.
However moved on from that, I've been thinking of making some sort of security cameras using my old computers I have around the house.
Any recommendations on how I could do it, prefer to use on computer and multiple cams. Prefer to use Linux rather than Windows.
There's apparently a linux OS out there that is just for this kind of thing, I am yet to find that
Please let me know! Please and thank you.
Hmm, I have seen some good results with even basic Linksys wireless webcams.
Does anyone else have any good recommendations, though? Perhaps something that won't freak out visitors too much? =p

My problem with what I've seen with wireless webcams is battery, you'll need to regularly charge them unless you find one which can be plugged into a power outlet.
Surely there must be a way to monitor such usages through a computer too?

I was looking at motion detector type things, where when the camera detects movement it will start recording.
You could get a professional to give you a quote, and maybe look at the setup he would be using?
Also, where do you live in Australia?
We've setup a new alarm system, really the cameras I'm just going to use as a fun thing for myself to do and have a benefit for this.
I'm in Melbourne.
Hello, I've had SkyIP cams set up around my house, office, and in some of our locations around the nation.
I have one main computer running the software and logging videos and screenshots 24/7 on 9 cameras at a time. They're pretty easy to setup, and some models even have microphones and speakers on them.
Definitely give them a look.

Logitech also has a security camera solution that looks pretty slick.
They're more expensive than some of the units you'll see around, but these are top of the line in my opinion.
The whole AXIS line of camera's is fantastic, actually.
I'd also recommend AXIS IP cameras, they're awesome.
What's a good premise camera setup going to do without any offensive/defensive to go with it?
Here is what I have in case crooks breaks into my house. Let's call all my setups "defensive".
Having severs with customer data on it without proper monitoring is like having one night stand without using protections - eventually, there will be an 'oh s**t!' moment.
Well Ive moved out already, But back at home, My brothers truck was vandalized and broken into 2 times, I drove down their and put 3 new camera\'s up, And we actually got the crooks on camera, They are currently in a Cellar. The sad thing is, That they were only around 16 years old.
I've put together a Ubuntu server with Zoneminder, hopefully it fits its purpose
Still need to look for a few good wireless cams.
