dear sandisk1duo, the "here" place expired on 6-03-2015 . i've been looking also and the cheapest,easiest, kindest and most simplest way for me and a "babies room monitor" seems my way out. <30 u.s.dollars. range 20 meters to an unobstructed view of 40 meters. have one coming for my remote controlled lawn mower and will let you know in 3 weeks from today. box full of webcams right beside me.
I AM ALLWAYS NICE .
I have been researching for three months and couldnt find a single way to do it for cheap proces so check this out.....this might help out.......i couldnt do this because i dont have two wireless routers....if you have two routers with USB ports then you could try it at your home.
The main component required is a camera. You need to find a web cam which is normally connected by a USB or Ethernet cable. The easiest type to use would be a network cable, but USB cameras will also suffice. The length of the cable isn't that important since you are converting it into a wireless security camera.
You now need to convert the web cam or IP camera into a wireless security camera. To do this, you will need to purchase two wireless routers, both of these need to have USB ports available.
Connect the wireless router to your Internet connection, and then connect the other one to your security camera. This makes it very easy to wirelessly access the video stream.
Now, connect your routers to a power outlet. Normally, most webcams will draw the power they need from the USB port, however, it's also possible to find some cameras which require an additional power source.
Fix the camera wherever you want to film. Remember that you will need to position the wireless router nearby. If you are using the camera outside, then you will need to use a housing which will keep your camera protected from the weather.
Install the webcam software on your computer, and set it up to use the remote camera. You might also like to purchase specialist security software. This is designed to automatically start recording as soon as movement is detected but not so important. The videos are recorded straight to your computers hard drive.
I think it's logical and it might work out but dont blame me if it doesn't work and check twice for any mistakes
