DIY home surveillance

I've no time for my own reviews at the moment, but I'd like to point you to Terence Eden's reviews (with pics) of some interesting British gadgets:

  1. Y- Cam - wifi / Ethernet camera you can monitor via your mobile phone e.g. Blackberry, emails you photo on detecting motion, about £150.

  2. Peepr - free, lets you broadcast to the web or mobile via your computer's webcam and mike, tries to send you SMS text on detecting movement.

Not CCTV exactly, but they sound ideal for personal home surveillance. Even if you have a burglar alarm for home security the ability to keep an eye on your home, literally, and to even take and save photos, can't be a bad thing.

See Terence's review and pics.

Thanks for promoting these security options. I do think it's important for homeowners to expect a 6 month money back guarantee on any security technology.

In the UK at least, I think we're stuck with a few days if you buy online, and none at all if you buy from a shop. Unless it's fault of course.

This sounds like a good idea

Is the image in real time though?

Can i be added to a existing built system?

Yeah, after my mum’s house got broken into I decided to setup a security system with cctv. She feel a lot safer now and then system I got links to the net so if there is any trouble I can view her house from my place. I got some useful information from http://www.homecctvsecurity.co.uk … after reading some information here I decided the ip cams were my best option.
