Re: security camera
I got a wireless network camera for about 140 bucks. Leave it recording at 320x240 res, not too high quality compression but enough to see the face still. I could leave that running for over a month and it wouldn't fill up a 1tb drive.
I also have it streaming live over the web in case I want to check it from anywhere else
