     I got two of them at www.dlink.com.  Yeah, the cameras are a little expensive at 400 Euro each, but if you are an expert, you will appreciate the fact that they are wireless and self contained.  As I mentioned, you do not require a computer anywhere on the network (except for set-up); once initiated, they run by themselves.Its all good

I just did this.  I have two D-Link DCS 1000w cameras.  They are wireless, so you don't have to run cable from the computer; just power.  They have their own web server right in them, i.e. they emit their images as html; you don't even need a computer - anywhere.  If you have dsl, wireless router, and a dcs1000w, you have live internet video 24/7.  Cool eh?  I am in California and I can see my villa in real time right now!  Motion detection automatically sends me an e-mail anytime someone enters the frame.  From anywhere in the world, from the web, I can turn my porch light 'on' or 'off'; via the camera.  ...I guess that could be connected to the jacuzzi also; mine isn't.  One bad thing, image quality is not spectacular and the internet is not really ready for high res live video as network congestion tends to slow things down.

Hi Trevor. What do you exactly want to do -do you want to show pictures to the world? Do you have a website to place the pictures on? Do you have a broadband connection with a fixed IP address. If yes basically you need to insert some html code into a web page and the best person to do this may be your site designer.
