My house has recently gotten robbed. Last night actually at about 2 AM with me sleeping upstairs. I was OK and all but they took a TV and some stuff worth some money SO we are now trying to keep our apartment more secure. SO I have an RCA (Composite connection) security camera. I have a Pinnacle Dazzle Pro input device. I have an external hard drive that is 120 GB and I was wondering if there is anyway to:
A. Have this security camera (Link:Here
be able to record more than two hours which is as much as the Dazzle program will let me record.
B. Automatically update to an FTP server and save roughly 12-24 HRS of video at a time (total on the FTP) and automatically replace the OLDEST data when uploading the new data. (I'm assuming since an hour of video is roughly 2.5 GB that the upload time between videos would be roughly every two hours or so. Which would still be HUGE but it's all I can do...) [Maybe update every half hour so that it goes faster?]
C. Maybe just be motion sensor type camera.
Anyone have any ideas about how to use this as a security camera and back it up online daily? I just want to make it work and I figure it might take some scripts and some batch files to work but if I can get it to work that'd be awesome. If not. I suppose turning it on while we sleep/we are not home will have to be enough. Please. Anyone with any information about this stuff would be EXTREMELY helpful. Thank you all in advance.
