    I'm using Active Webcam from pysoft.com. Works with multiple USB cams, has many options. But some of these other options seem interesting too.

    The alerting and notification aspects of home security need to be taken into consideration as well. Alarm.com offers a system in which the security panel communicates with the monitoring system via cellular network. So it's not like a typical land-line or cable connection that can be defeated by cutting an exposed cable. That company also offers remote viewing and other home security and automation features, albeit at a price. Disclaimer: I know some people who work there. I am not a customer though because I do not consider myself to be sufficiently rich, paranoid, or threat-exposed to justify the additional cost.
