thinking of buying a webcam. i want to leave my pc running in the day and for the webcam to record when it detects movement. Is there a certain type/make of webcam i should be looking for to achieve this???

Also can you recommend the good and bad webcams outthere.

Most logitech Webcams come with software that does as you require.

A Creative VideoBlaster webcam I use to have also came with motion detection software - it might be available on the Creative Europe website.

I have the Creative NX Pro and has proved to be excellent for my needs.

Do a search for reviews on
Logitech4000 Pro one of the better ones.The price reflects this though
Go for one with CCD not CMOS camera
