What webcams will be compatible with this?
When i get the webcams do i just install the software onto my pc and plug the usb webcams into my pc as well?
The only two webcams I have tried are an old Logitech 'golf ball' webcam, and a Creative 'Vista' web cam. As far as I am aware, webcams usually come with their own software, as well as basic windows drivers that let other windows programs work with them - Harmony CCTV works with these drivers.
The two webcams I have tried and shown in the Ebay listing are indeed just plugged in to USB ports on the Harmony CCTV pc.
1. Webcams are not likely to have a very high resolution compared to CCTV cameras.
2. The main strength of Harmony is with its home automation servers (not included with CCTV). These allow you control X10 and Bye Bye Standby automation equipment (as well as others) to turn items such as lights etc on and off. I use Bye Bye Standby to turn my cameras on when movement is detected.
3. Harmony CCTV does work with Win7, but at the moment prevents high resolutions being used. This will be sorted out in the near future.
