On the ultracheapy front I had a working linux quickcam setup with
a connectix job (http://www.connectix.com) stuck into parallel port
driven with qcam-grabber (http://bob.usuf2.usuhs.mil/video/). There
was some cloned cu-seeme (quseeme ? or sommat) available. Twas black
and white, but they have color models as well.
Turned it into security camera when some lowlife walked off with my
cdburner from openplan postgrad area. Could carefully review 10 hours
of security guards walking around and lights coming on and off. Would
be neat to have some software intelligent nough to review a camera feed
searching for possible persons, or at least able to flag a significantly
large enough delta between images as a possible interesting feature
worthy of human review.
