Wireless camera to keep watch on room

  andy625 12:04 16 May 2007

Can anyone recommend a "webcam" type camera that I can set up to watch over a room and transmit the pictures to a laptop via my wireless network?

We have just got a cat and would like to watch what it does when we're not in the room.

I don't need to transmit it over the web, this is just for use in our house.

Hi, you need a video sender to which you attach your camcorder, you can then watch what happens in another room ...

I have this click here which is not exactly was you asked for but is a great low cost solution. It transmits a wireless signal to a receiver which can be connected to any TV with AV connectors. It's colour and also has night vision which is a bonus and can be powered by mains or battery.

At work here I use web cams to monitor the entrance doors. The software that comes with the web cams has sufficient functionality to produce pictures of who enters the building. Emails are sent with a picture when the web cam is activated.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Recap, the system you have sounds like what I was thinking of. Having looked at some of the web sites suggested though, I'm assuming that your setup would be fairly expensive?

Dipso, its a shame the one you have can't be read by a pc. Thats the kind of price I had in mind. I don't need anything too elaborate.

I would have thought that it should be quite easy to connect Dipsos' item to a PC graphics card, it would only need AV in on the card.

Or even connected to a pci TV card with AV in.

Yes, sorry for the confusion. I mentioned TV as that is how I use it but there's absolutely no reason why it couldn't be connected to a PC with the appropriate hardware.

Ah I see. Looks like thats what I need then. Thanks everyone.
