"Baby" monitors/surveillance cams
Hey friends,
I'm wanting to get a camera for inside my house and garage that I can monitor from the web or my iPhone. I'd like it to have motion/sound sensing with alerts.
I've seen a few but I'm flooded with info and confused as which is the best buy.

So far, this one seems to be the best for me, but I know nothing about these.

Adviseify, please!

*Edit: this one is nearby... looks promising...

If you have a spare Mac you can get an app called evocam that'll do the motion sensing for you and use either a built in iSight or some cheapie USB webcam. This is how I did puppy cam back in the day.

I didn't. Puppycam was only thing I could relate to.
