I looked earlier this year to have wireless camera for neighborhood monitoring and they were $200-$300.

Do you need wireless?

I have an Earth cam connected to a DSL modem at my vacation property. It is in an environmental enclosure. I have approx $1500 in my unit. It works great but not cheap. If you want to see it the address is http://ausable-huron.axiscam.net. If you got to this site you will have to allow activex.

That's awesome! Nice view, huh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leroy, Wireless would be nice, but it will still need power right?

A friend of mine installed some X10 products at his house on Clearlake. He was having problems with his neighbors stealing stuff from his yard, breaking into his place and stealing food/booze, etc.

He's got cameras that work in the dark, plus motion sensors that turn on the recorder when they sense motion. The system also sends him an E-Mail when motion is detected, and he can see what's happening live from home (other home).

I don't know if X10 has all the stuff to do this, but it is all available. How much capability you want will dictate how much you spend.

Good Luck!

if anyone needs a clear waterproof enclosure, let me know and i'll make something up for you here at work...ahhh, the benefits of having Vacuum Forming technology and expensive high-temperature, moisture proof films!!!

in trade for details of the least expensive camera and wireless setup you can find...i've heard range of 25-50' is consistence as far as wireless signal goes...but how can you reduce the price of using repeaters..

Here's a webcam near our cabin. If you click on the FAQ's, he gives a good description on the setup he uses. http://www.beddowtree.com/sheridan/lake.htm

Look at the "yesterday at the lake" as well. It's a time last of the past 24 hours.

That's an impressive setup! That looks like a lot of ice still left!
