What is the best surveillance software for 4 ip cameras?

I have several Toshiba ip wireless cameras and am using Active Webcam
for recording to my
hard drive.
Active Webcam just isn't cutting it for me - too unreliable. What's the
most pro software out there?

Also, is it possible to convert an ethernet or wireless camera to a
wired version that goes into a DVR?
I love ip cameras for remote viewing, but the frame rate is too low. I
originally bought these because of the additional ptz features.

Thanks

while they are more money than an x10. you can truly view over the web, or
even your cell phone. Search eBay to find a cheaper price, or a goggle
search will return good prices

this is the best price I have found for additional cameras. I have this
system and it is way cool.
During your Google search, you can read any number of glowing reviews from
various publications
search using LukWerks as your parameter
X-10 will not give you these kinds of results you can get from lukwerks

Thanks! The outdoor camera looks interesting as does the newer
technology (not having to go through the internet / router method

I wonder if there's a device for these that can make the camera into a
ptz and operate it from the computer

However, it doesn't seem to work in the dark (no ir). So far for
surveillance.

If you look on the website there are night time illuminators sold as
accessories.

Hmm, I don't know, the camera specs say:
Illumination: 2 lx minimum. I own an axis 205 with the same light
requirement. Adding IR light doesn't help this camera.

The seperate (indoor) night time illuminator includes a lens for nighttime
viewing, but I thought the nighttime viewing (using IR) is not lens but ccd
dependend.

But besides the nighttime viewing, I think it's a nice camera. Maybe I buy
one for use as a webcam showing the landscape.

If the camera has an IR filter (most do) adding IR won't help.  On some
"day/night" cameras the IR filter moves in and out as
needed.
