Anyone have experience with computer based security cameras? I've been having problems in a suburban neighborhood with theft and pranks and want to catch someone in the act. If it's my neighbor who we have a protection order against it will get real interesting....

I've heard that they're good to decent now. A few years ago I got a set-up to try but didn't get around to it for a while. When I did, the system didn't work out (never did go back and try to figure out what was up).

I don't know if you want to call this a good or bad reference. I'm not impressed with their site, too much crap.

They do have a 30 day Warranty/Return Policy. http://www.x10.com/support/return_policy.htm

I checked their website but thought it looked like a flea market or a used car lot and thought I'd pass on anything from X10.

If you have a Fry's store nearby, you can get a PCI card that accepts 4 camera inputs. You can set it up to only record when certain perimeters are breached. Then pick up a couple of night/day cameras while you are there. You can access it remotely via internet. Maybe cost you $400 for the video card/software/ 3 cameras.

This is something to look into; I was thinking about getting at a minimum one of those 'game cameras' that hunters set up to snap pictures of the game. They are motion activated and a decent pixel/res camera is getting pretty cheap in that configuration. I was watching an expose one evening on a guy who used one of these (~80 bucks) to catch a guy breaking into his truck.
