The Philosophy of Security: webcamXP - Webcam and Network Camera Surveillance Software

This is an old go bag tip that is still valid. One weekend I received two calls with in an hour from EP teams on the road, with the same request. How to setup a cheap single cctv system to watch and record the hall and door of the Protectee's room. I sent this out an hour later. When at the Dollar Tree store, look for 6 foot usb cable extenders, at 1 dollar each. I normally find that I can only use two extender cables, plus the usb camera cable, for a distance of about 16 feet. So the PC will have to be close to the door of your room. The webcam allows for recording as well as motion detection for free. You may want to give it a try. It is another force multiplier.
