I want a (cheap) camera set up in my house



Hey guys.

I park on the street.

I have a room upstairs that has a big window facing the street, and that room happens to have a computer in it.

I was hoping to get some camera where I can point it facing outside of the window on my front yard and car, and then it could record to the computer or something, and after my HD space gets filled up it just overwrites that file.


Is this poissible, and how easy is it to do, and how much am I looked to spend?

Thanks.

how much do you want to spend? if its the right amount you can probably get a single camera that watches over thats connected to a vcr where it overwrites every 3 days or so and you can watch it from ur tv screen..

logitech has a webcam that only records when there is motion. if you live on a quiet street that might be a cheap option.

i like vcr idea mentioned above.

or if you wanna be uber leet get a 802.11b wireless camera.
