|XRay Vision Software|
One choice for this situation is the XRay Vision package from X10 (www.x10.com). This bundle starts with X10ís XCam2. The XCam2 is a mini camera designed to wirelessly transmit a video feed to any TV or VCR in your home or office. At about $80, the XCam2 on its own makes for a pretty good surveillance device. For another $50 or so, the XRay Vision package adds a receiver that plugs into your computerís USB port. That way, you can use your XCam2 to do the Webcam thing. The XRay Vision software is very cool. Not only can the software upload snapshots to your Web site, you also can control the software via the Internet from any remote site. Alternatively, you can set the software to recognize an incoming call to your computerís modem. This signals the software to log onto the Internet and upload an image. Like the QuickCam Pro software, XRay Vision also includes motion detection.

Next, we used the XRayVision software to get the receiver attached to the PC. This provided us with a relatively easy-to-use interface to take snapshots and save photos on the computer. We ran into very few problems throughout the test.
