    Can anyone recommend a decent home security system/camera.
    Ideally wireless / IP, that can send sms'/pictures/videos to either phone or email?

    i run a seperate Pc with a 4chan DVR card. i run 2 cams that i can watch from anywhere in the uk by logging in to the software via IE. you will need to port forward your router but its well worth it. I run bullet cams with infer red LEDS like so.

    [​IMG]

    i got the dvr card and the cams from Ebay, £20 real of cable from b&q and i was sorted. It will record on motion detection witch is fully adjustable, or you can set it to record continuously. I have it record the data to my main pc and a wireless Hard drive hidden in the house (with battery back up) I ran it on windows 7 under admin rights but it runs alot better on XP.

    the cams cost me £30 each (they were on offer) and the DVR card inc software was £35 i think. cant go wrong with it IMO. you can also control the zoom, move dome cams, and switch on external lights with the software. Phat little toy to have!
