    Along the same lines, a good open source software to play around with your IP camera(s) is ispy. It supports motion recording, zones, alerts and more. It's free to use on a single home network (but monthly charge for various things like secure remote access, mobile access, sms, etc). It supports cheap webcams up to expensive ones.

    For $30-50 Blue Iris is another.

    OK, now I'm going to have to try this just to see what it is like :)

    There is also a free version of Milestone. Since we upgraded to an i7 it runs fine, like a command console and very intuitive to use once you get it setup. Limitations are only 1 week of recording and local client only (no LAN client in the free version, so don't waste hours like I did trying to get that to work...)
