    Question Surveillance camera software Suggestions?

    Since I had a nasty note left on my car the other day, Iíve finally gotten around to playing with some surveillance camera software for my PC (the kind that detects motion in the picture & records about a minute of video before & after the motion, then uploads the video to an FTP or Email account in case the PC is stolen), but Iíve had limited luck Ė Most of the affordable software Iíve tried is buggy (either records too much or too little video, or the FTP & email functions are flaky).

    Anyone have a ďfavoriteĒ software package?

    Iíve managed to find some pretty cheap analog 2GHz wireless night vision cameras & capture cards, though, which seem to work ok for the job, although the ones I really wanted (IP cameras that could just be picked up by my wireless network hub) were too pricey.

    Thanks!
    Charlie

    I'm afraid you might be out of luck Tx. With camera systems, you get what you pay for.

    The only way you are going to be happy is with a networkable system, IP cameras that feed into a networkable DVR, and software that produces and holds a static IP address. That is if you are wanting to view everything from a remote location.

    Why not get a simple system that you can install and run into you house/apartment? Is that an option?

    Why not just tell your chief to stop leaving notes on your car

    On a serious note Charlie;

    If there is something I can help you with, PM me or let me know. I own my own business on the side and part of that is selling and installing security camera systems.

    Have a good one.

    I have an idea why not stop pissing people off and pretending to be something that your not.

    As far as cameras go as the others have said you get what you pay for, and from our experiance in what you have told us you should be able to afford anything that you want. So get off your fat ass and get something that is worth while if you are so worried about your vehicle. Most likely what you find is that its a bunch of kids that are playing around and decided that the fat neighbor would be a good target. Guess what it worked because you are paranoid about something.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Exactly what do you think I'm pretending to be that I'm not, and who exactly have I pissed off except you & the Chief?

    I've actually had the camera & capture card for almost a year... Bought it when there was a rash of car burglaries in town, but I never played with it till now. If that's paranoid, then guilty as charged.

    I know the the note was just a prank, it just said something like "Hello to all the people of this fucking town, I'm from Oak Cliff - Here's a semen sample for you" - And yes it did have a semen sample on it

    We've also seen a rise in vandalism since school's out - May be the same kids, but I don't know how you get "paranoid" from that

    Video surveillance just got a lot easier.Now you can turn your webcam video surveillance system complete with motion detection capabilities using just a webcam surveillance program software.The main drawback is their Gotcha monitoring capabilities remotely.

    Removed the link from your sig as you can see. PM the site owner about that first. An intro post would also be a better first post:
