Using Webcam as Home Security

A friend has asked my advice on possibility of using a Webcam for Security Surveillance. I have told her it is possible but that I have no experience of same.

Any advice please that I can pass on, would be most welcome. Inexpensive or Free would help!

TIA ....

This subject as been aired before on the forum. There are software packs out there, that will do the job. So possibly a quick internet search might bring some results.

I have just put 'using webcam for surveillance' in Google, and it came up with quite a number of what appears to be good links.

Hi spuds, thanks for your input - I have already had a Google and have noted a couple of links to pass on, was hoping someone might have had actual experience and could put in a word.
