The iWitness software recors on motion in
various ways ... do you have AHP?

Unfortunately, the downside to the wired
cameras is that you need hardware to
connect all the cams to (if you have more
than one) that will allow switchign and
monitoring in various ways.

The other alternative is to buy a
transmitter for every camera which in
effect turns them all into wireless cameras
and then use MultiView, WebView, X-Ray
Vision, or iWitness as designed.

You could also set up a VCR for each camera
and wire them into it, and set them up to
record on motion using the VCR commander.
Cumbersome, but wired cameras are not the
easiest solutions to a multi-cam system.
