    Best Webcam/security package?

    I'm after a USB webcam for use with a WinXP machine.

    Basically, I want to put an old Compaq SFF machine with USB in my garage and have it connect via Wifi to my home network.

    I then want to connect a USB webcam that will capture movement and dump it to the HDD or an FTP site etc.

    I also want to be able to connect to it across the web at random and be able to view the video via a web browser.

    So.... whats a cheap, but well spec'd package?

    Would it not just be cheaper to get a CCTV package and have it record to a VCR?

    One of my mates on another forum wrote a program that would capture any movements and send the picture to his FTP site so he could view it.

    Wow. I want one of those. But at £200 it's an expensive toy.

    Anything cheaper about?

    Axis IP cams are good as well, but they will cost more than the D-Link ones.
