Hi Can anyone help me with turning my pc with web cams into a cctv secuity system watching inside and outside of my house please. I would like to have a web cam in some of the rooms to watch inside and with two web cams to monitor outside of our house (front and back), if place them on the window sill looking out, is that possible? and I would like to record the footage into my HD too. can anyone help? many thanks
As for recording, this will also depend on the supporting software provided by each individual camera. Alternatively, if you have (as an example) 4 cams on screen at the same time, you could use a screen capture application to record all 4 at the same time, e.g; HyperCam click here
Please remember that recording ANY public areas outside of you house falls under the data protection act 1999 and subsequent legalisation. It is sensible to check on your individual position to this act before recording outsie your property if it includes any public areas.
Hi AndySD, thanks for your input, I only interested in recording within my own properties as we have been burgled recently and the police is not going to waste their time to investigate this kind of crime as they have been told not to by politicians! thanks
