which will manage a bunch of video cameras connected by some TV tuner
cards and convert the output info the sort of camera images you can
view on a website. I don't think it does motion detection though. We
tend to use cameras with that function built into them -- for instance
http://www.axis.com/products/cam_210/index.htm -- which do just about
everything you could wish for.
