A client has approached me to install a video security system in thier shop. They want it to be accessible over the internet, where they would like to be able to see what's going on from things like the iPhone. Recording when movement occurs or sounds are 'heard' is of interest. Seems like there's lots of crap out there, and 'pro' systems are too expensive / high end... Any suggestions?

Tag. Been planning on this for a while. There is a thread around with good cam info, but I don't recall anything about software.

I would be particularly interested in a PC based system with components that you can build up on your own, rather than an expensive packaged solution.

Hopefully both types will be discussed.

I have installed a few. Night Owl systems from tiger direct work just fine. They are motion activated. Night vision and have 500GB drives. I use 16 cam systems at a few locations and will be putting in three more in a few weeks

Your customer will need a static IP address for internet and two ports opened on the router/modem.

After that you type in the static IP, install the Active X programs, and log in with a password. You can even hook up mics and get audio too.

EDIT: You can even view the cams from a smart phone or any PC with internet access.

most decent ones have DDNS or can be set up for dyndns.org service. no real need to pay for a static IP

The main camera thread is in the survival forum. Block out some time... it's almost 50 pages.

At the gym... can't link it from here.

Correct. These will work that way as well.
