Hi Susan.   x10.com has some pretty good security cameras with color and 
sound - sending the signal up to 100 feet through walls. They have remote 
switching too.  We monitor our front and back and the humming bird feeder 
and regular feeder are in sight too.

If we had a martin house up - I'd set one up for that too.

It helps us chase off the cats too.

> Greetings, MO birders.  Several weeks ago, we discovered a Carolina Wren
