Clueless about webcams
Posted on 2003-12-03
Hi - I want to sort out a webcam, of sorts, but it's an area I have no idea about so could do with a bit of help if possible.
Basically all I need to do is this - set up a camera in one room of my house to transmit what goes on in front of it to the computer in another room of the house. The rooms in question are next door to each other incidentally, but where the camera would go and where the PC is is too far apart to be able to feed a cable round, so I guess this needs to be some wireless business.
So, how easy is it to set up a camera of some sort to tranmit to a PC a few metres away, the other side of a wall? Is this business expensive - I mean, I don't even know exactly what equipment you need, as my search of the web this morning has done nowt more than confuse me further, sadly.
If anyone could help me out with the basics of this stuff, or where to go to get clued up, that would be grand.
