Home Security

I'm planning on setting up a simple home security system for my home. I was thinking of using Wireless IP webcams, placed in strategic locations, monitored by software with a motion sensing function. I would tweak the sensitivity and add null zones as needed. I would probably only use two or three cameras to start out, and have the software save ten or twenty seconds of video when the motion sensor was triggered. EASY. Once I have the motion sensing bugs worked out, I'd like for the software to email/text message me. I think most of the security programs for webcams out there can do this. I've had good experiences with one program that also let you run an image server so you can view current images through the internet. The TRICKY part is how I would like to set up the network of wireless IP webcams. What I was hoping to do is have one machine that was dedicated to running the cameras. My goal was to use my two wireless routers so that I could have two seperate networks, one for the cameras, and one for all the other devices (laptops, desktops, game systems, printers). My question is, do I connect the router for the cameras to the computer that will run the security software, or do I plug that router into the router for the other devices? I've never worked with two of these small LinkSYS routers at the same time, so I'm not sure if I should be trying to create some sort of network bridge, or if I would maybe connect the camera router and camera computer via the WAN port of the router, since all of the camera images would be displayed on a image/web server running on that computer, accessed from the internet via the other router. Also, I've never worked with wireless IP webcams, so if there is any sort of quirck that I should know about that your average instructables user couldn't figure out, any help or advice with that would be much appreciated as well. Thanx Tony P.S. Eventually, I'd like to add in a strobe that would blink and a siren that would sound for a short time. I think I could figure this part out with "Pico Servers" and some relays.

Is there any way to encourage banks/lenders to make a loan on a foreclosure/bank owned home? or a home that needs work?

My wife had good credit when she married me, I've always had marginal/poor credit, but see that there are dozens of homes that could use some work in our town, and for really cheap ($20k-$40k). I would certainly do a lot of the work myself, but don't know how that would affect said lender's opinion.

How do I trace a home electric circuit from the breaker to its terminus??

Just moved into a 60's home.  The electrical system has some "unique" aspects.  Everything works and the building inspector didn't find any glitches but the main panel wasn't labeled.  I spent a day tracing out most of the circuits.  I ended up with two 110V circuits that don't seem to power anything in the house.  ( hey that is better than the 3 110V and 2 240V unknown circuits that i started out with! )  I have accounted for things like outside lights and outlets, attic fan and lights, extra outlets in the garage, and a line out to a shed.   The breakers are wired and "on".     So can I trace these circuits from the main panel to where ever they end up?

Has anyone used underground piping before to cool a house?

I bought a 110 Victorian home in Middle Georgia and was studying about installing underground piping to help cool the house. Has anyone experimented with 5 inch PVC before underground to cool with? I took a study of temps in the house, attic and crawl-space to see if I pulled air from the crawl space, I could use that cool air to help circulate in the house to assist cooling. I found that the crawl-space was actually as close to the outside temp. It wouldn't help. I then studied using piping to put under ground about 3 feet and use a to-and-from push fans then tie it into the fan-only central heat and air system. I then wonderered if I would cause a positive preasure issue. I haven't tested it yet, but I think the ground temp is about 68 degrees constant if you go at least 3 feet deep! Any comments?

The use of gas generators in the home.

Available pluses home gas generators: * Rate per se gas generator compared with the price affordable euro GASOLINE. * The price of fuel is lower than that of the generator on diesel or gasoline. Available Cons: * Gas ​​is considered the most volatile than diesel or gasoline. * Appeal from the gas and the installation of equipment for gas processing requests for special and separate permission. Our legislation prohibited the installation of systems and gas processing equipment in the absence of a suitable plan or agreement. * Most of all, on our market, there are gas generators made in China. * Gas ​​generators are made on the basis of a gasoline engine, the method of adjustment of fuel injection system and fuel carburation. In accordance with this resource from the generator corresponds to the resource gasoline engine. * Later, the acquisition of the gas generator of small capacity, the buyer is faced with a specific limitation on work: a maximum of 6 hours per day. The resource identified by the manufacturers of gas generators, with the first glance quite broad. However, do not understand the root cause of its increase. On average, the share of gasoline engine, out of which gas engines, floats in the range up to 2000 HOURS. This common resource for the euro generator. Imagine the Chinese gasoline engine, the resource is constant. Next, suppose that the resource oposlya changing gasoline engine to natural gas will not decrease. (Our real change of cars with fuel gas indicates a reduction of the resource engine, which originally was made for 1-octane gasoline, well, and subsequently applied for another). 1 of firms offering gas generators, a guarantee in 2000, machine hours, or one year, although with the limitation, at least 6 hours per day. The appointment of such a generator is not clear. As a source of constant power, he will not do, as backup - as well as the first blackout since most 6 hours (which happens often) determines the total loss of warranty. It is reasonable to imagine that the buyer, which turned off the light of day, will not sits all day in the absence of light, zhdya coming the next day. In general, in fact, a similar limitation on the work looks pretty amazing: It seems as clear that the miniature generator with cooling air is not able to operate around the clock. While that still causes inconvenience to cool the generator, for example, for 1 hour, and then resume his work? In solid power installed thermal disconnector, which simply will not allow too much power to warm up, and therefore, the decision on mode of operation.
