Hi, Marcus,

    First off you hit the nail right on the head when you said: "The 
collective wisdom on this list never ceases to amaze me."

    About - well they sure bought into the "sex sells" message. 
What do scantily clad young ladies have to do with the systems being 
advertised?  The "eye-candy" distracts me from looking at the product so I 
end up not looking at their site at all.  Hype is right.

    How about poking around Smarthome?  On their "Cameras 
and Surveillance" page they have a "Camera Selection Assistant" that lets 
you narrow down the number of cameas to review.  I don't know how they 
compare price-wise.  They have been around for quite a while - I've been 
looking at their catalogs for years and dreaming of what I'd like to do 
given any money and, more importantly, time.

    Let us know what you do - I've got an area behind my garage that I'd 
like to be able to watch.
