Anyone use X-10 cameras for security via web?
 
Was wondering if anyone had one of those set-ups (I think it's called X10?) where you can control and monitor home CCTV by computer from a remote source. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

The IP systems I've installed used a pretty expensive mux to send the images... I looked at what you were talking about on X10's website... sounds like a nice low dollar solution. I've used X10's products for about 15 years now and have never had a problem with them.

X10 Camera Drawback
 
The only initial drawback I saw was that the cam had to be plugged into an outlet for electricity. I guess this shouldn't have been surprising, but it does tend to limit just how covert you can make the camera. Of course for an extra $19.99 you can buy a battery pack, which gets rid of the need for an outlet but limits your viewing time to four hours. Also, the camera isn't exactly waterproof, but it can be used outside if under reasonable shelter.
