    Web Camera Hosting Question
    I want to get some kind of bullet camera or similar, and host the live video on my website. Any ideas on a simple, cheap, way to do this? Anyone do this already? I know you can buy a camera with a built in isp, but I thought there might be a cheaper way...

    I'd ask the X10 folks.

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    I have a site with a setup like this, although it updates once a minute instead of live. It's one of those cameras with a built in web server & it's hooked up to a cable modem that's nearby the installation. On the actual web site server, I have a proxy set up to fetch the camera image into local cache for display. Works pretty good. The only time there's been a problem was when the hurricanes went through and they cut off power to the area for a day or so.

    This looks like a viable option for 80 bucks, or about 110 for wireless...

    I'm using a similar model, but wireless & one of the ones that accepts a CS type lens mount for my application. Works great!
