'[OT]: Security systems'

Hi,
  I have a friend who lives on a farm in the middle of nowhere but
right next to the turnpike, I get a little worried about her that
someone will turn up int the house uninvited. I'm interested in setting
up a computer/pic based security system out side to hopfully track
things moving through the yard. Can anyone point me to some cheap
interesting sensor equipment that have a decent range and the ability to
pinpoint the 'detection' rather than just provide and on/off indication?

 Cheers.

Tom,

There is a cheap solution combining camera/pc card that you can watch with a
camera a gate or a door or anything, then draw in the observed picture a
rectangle and when someone enter to the marked area then alarm is activated
on the pc speakers.
furthermore, the software will record 24/7/365 each camera with time and
date and many features.
card: about 300$ up to 4 cameras include internet/modem/network control, and
many functions...
color ccd camera: about 70-100$ depend on the quality and the case.

Regards

You know, that made me thing of a tool I'm using at home ... Using my
Linux PC, and a USB Web Cam, and software called MOTION, it not only
detects and highlights motion, but can also drive a custom made servo
driver that keeps the image centered in the camera's field of view.

Start by visiting http://www.freshmeat.net, and search for MOTION in the Projects
area.

P.S.  Software is command line driven, and can be daemonized, supports
multiple cameras, but I have not yet tried the positioning / tracking
stuff.
