IT works with USB and CCTV cameras including the ability to use Pan,  
Tilt and Zoom from the web interface.  IT allows you to setup Zones  
that trigger recording and even set time-restrictions on when it  
should record.

It rocks.  I've used it commercially and the customer was delighted!

I've also used it in my house and it worked fine using a Thinkpad 570  
laptop as the "server".

Kind regards,
