I've got a need for a comprehensive home surveillance solution that meets the following criteria
- no monthly charges
- support for multiple cameras (preferably over ethernet or wifi)
- motion detection
- sensors triggered by doors/windows opening, water, or smoke
- alerting via email and SMS
- remote access portal
I know I'm asking for the world here.. but i just can't seem to find a solution that has all these features. I'm thinking i might have to cobble one together myself and script together all the logic needed to make everything work.
Ok, i've done some homework. Decided to go with an Open Source dot.net solution called iSpy. It supports several inputs, has motion detection algorithms, and I can modify the source code to add support for additional features i want.
