We've featured numerous home surveillance apps, as well as some details on how to make a pretty hardcore surveillance system. If you're looking for something simpler, though, how-to weblog Tinkernut shows us how to do it in just a few steps.
Of course, you'll need to rustle up a few webcams before you set it all up, but Tinkernut has some helpful advice on how to choose the right one for you. Once you have the hardware, it's as easy as adding your webcams to a program and streaming it over the internet (privately, of course). That way, you can keep an eye on your house when you're at work, on holidays or anywhere else offsite. Check out the video to see how it's done, and if you have your own methods for surveilling your home, share them with us in the comments.
