If you use this option, make sure it records over the internet for safe storage. If it records to a pc on premises it my be plundered to remove any evidence caught on camera.

Only one (very slight) niggle is that the video replay is in their own format (slightly squashed vertically) but a converter is available at extra cost.

Been running it for about six months now with no problems - apart from each time, when the sun comes out, it decides it's detected a movement and starts recording! However, that used to happen on some of the other ones I did a 'try before you buy' on.

All in all, I'm happy with 'Active Webcam' and its functionality.

I use Creative webcams and the software that came with them. I am not too sure whether this particular software is now shipped with the webcams though. No need for ip addresses I just use the email accounts I set up for each one.
