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 x10.com - 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? www.smarthome.com 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.
