Title: Which kind of camera should I use?
Post by: Deemar on May 12, 2011, 03:27:12 PM
I have an X10 system in my house and I run Heyu to control everything. I'm wondering if there is any advantage to buying the X10 cameras because my research tells me they're much more expensive than regular webcams.....right? I have a $50 gift certificate for Futureshop (Best Buy clone) so I can get a real nice HD webcam from there to set up for surveillance but want to be sure I don't regret not buying an X10 specific camera. I know I can set up remote viewing of the webcam through Zoneminder or another server application via port 80.

I'm a software developer so I can write any code I need for this. What do you think?
