TiVo Security Camera

(Click here to view the original thread with full colors/images)



Posted by: Fins-up

I have had TiVo for some time now and love it. However it seems this product could be modified easily to be used as a security system.
Could a small camera be attached to the unit that would be attached to a motion detector that would record any movement sensed by the detector while the owner was away?
This would be a great way to document any entry into the home since the unit could be set to record for a specified period of time. Playback could be fast forward or slow motion etc. The unit could still be used as it was intended when it was not being used as a security device.

Can it be done?
Steve

I am using a 30 hour Tivo as a security camera recorder. There are a couple of problems. First, in my case, I don't need a Tivo subscription so I did not get one. The Tivo whines about this constantly making you press select to get to the next screen. This, however, is not serious. The second is a serious problem. I record 4, 6 hours programs repeated from the manual screen. The Tivo seems to have problems overwriting the oldest program and overwrites newer ones instead. The Tivo is very suited as a security system recorder. You can fast forward through an entire 24 hour day in just minutes. Freeze frame and slow motion are great. I wish I caould get an answer on the file deletion issue.
