Well, I'm officially mad now. :blink:

I've got somebody climbing over my fence at my shop and tearing my mailbox down. I would R-E-A-L-L-Y love to catch them at it. :whistling: It had been along my drive outside the fence. After they tore it down three times out there, I moved it inside my 10ft. high chain-link fence. Now they've gone and climbed over that to get to it. Problem is that it is sporadic but has happened 5 times in the last 2 months. Unfortunately I can't stay up there everynight waiting for the little crumb-muncher to come by so I can jump out and get'em. I can only imagine my shop truck and shop windows are next. I've got a pretty elaborate security system for the building but nothing outside. This is where ya'll come in.

I am going to try setting up a camera (this one as a matter of fact) and I want to be able to watch the feed from the house (since I'm on here, or somewhere, working logs all night it seems). I want to watch it on one of my home machines. I called the place that has the camera and talked to a guy that said a Video Network Adapter was the best way to go and I would just have to get an IP address and I could watch it from anywhere online. That part sounds OK, but he wants me to buy this 4 channel Adapter and I'm thinking that it's a bit too high.

I found this one on Ebay but I really kinda get lost in the whole hardware/driver thing (I should probably go through TechU too).

The camera outputs composite video on a 75ohm coaxial wire with a BNC connector. I don't have a problem converting that to the RCA jacks or even a screw on coaxial fitting. My main concern is what kind of Video Network Adapter will work and if I can record this same video on a machine at the shop as well.

Anybody have any experience with this kind of thing? Anypointers or ideas about different equipnet that will work better. Maybe a Video Capture Card?
