"A while back I was doing a little work for a local company whose owners can sometimes come across as a little bit paranoid to some people. The reason I say paranoid is that this company tends to have many surveillance cameras scattered around the premises, both inside and out.
I do realise that most companies do have CCTV cameras these days but this company has more cameras than actual employers, which, even for me, is a bit over the top.

The DCS-1130 Wireless N Network Camera connects to your home Wi-Fi network and transmits high quality video images for surveillance. Equipped with its own CPU and web server, it can be accessed remotely from anywhere via the Internet, including 3G mobile devices.The camera uses Wireless N technology, which offers more speed, extended coverage and virtually no dead spots whilst still being compatible with previous network standards. Unlike a web cam, it does not need a PC to be turned on.The DCS-1130 can take snapshots and record video whenever motion is detected, or according to a user-defined schedule. You can activate two different video streams simultaneously, for example for direct viewing and recording. Recording directly to a local Network Attached Storage (NAS) device is possible without a dedicated PC.The camera includes a software package, D-ViewCam 2.0, which allows you to view up to 32 cameras on a single computer screen at one central location. You can set up automated e-mail alerts for unusual activities that the camera detects.This camera works well even in low-light conditions. It has a built-in microphone and includes a 16x digital zoom for close-ups.
