Get a webcam. Go to Justin.tv. Set up a channel in the animal section.
Point the webcam or webcams at places you think someone might try to enter your home.
While you are gone you can hit record and use the Justin tv servers to record your home. You can also log in from any computer and take a look at what's going on.
Even if someone does break in everything will be recorded on your Justin tv account to be played back for the police or whoever.
I use this ALL the time when I leave my house. The best part is it's FREE.:)

Yes, it's a free website that I use as a home security system.

Do you think I'd need home security in Schenectady NY? I know it's not downtown, so I didn't know if it was going to be "dangerous" enough to even get a system. What do you think? I'm planning on going with http://www.easternoffice.com/residential/auto... if it's necessary.

Titanium, thank you! I have been wanting to set up a security system for quite a long time....but, was always held back by the steep pricing of systems out in the market. I downloaded Justin.tv and, I found the animal section. My only problem is, how do I set up a channel? If you could help me with this, I would appreciate it. I am going to purchase 2 or 3 camera's to set up. Again, Thank you for your knowledge.

Go to Harbor Freight and for $17 you can buy an invisible eye that detects straight line motion around your parameter. Mount the eye 3 feet high and 3 feet away from your foundation. The beam shoots all of 60-75 ft. The alarm can be mounted or placed in any room around your house. For another $35 you can buy their door sensors that tie nicely into a central sounding alarm with remote matching key fobs. To top it all off, grab yourself a deer cam for under $100. Display some beware of dog signs ($2), Buy yourself a shot gun ($300), keep it loaded and just wait for some crack head or psycho ex to show up.

For under $500 you can have one heck of a secure fortress!

You just have to create an account and set up the channel however you wish. If you run into any problems just check out a help video on Youtube. Anytime I have any questions about anything I look on Youtube first. Let me know how it goes.

Someone can access your channel and make it easier for robbers to know when you home or not. Stop being cheap and get adt. There service is free for a reason.

Not true at all. You set your channel to have a password so only YOU can view it. Obviously you wouldn't broadcast your channel out to the public. But I thought most people would be smart enough to realize that. I guess there's always one in the bunch.

I got locked out of my house a couple weeks ago and I had to call the locksmith. I now have a spare key with me at all times. What are the benefits of having a home security system?

I think that it is a really good idea for people to have home security. I think that it would be a good idea for me to update my home security. I would feel better knowing that my home and loved ones are secure. Thanks for sharing this information! http://www.miamifloridahomesecurity.com/artic...
