IP telephones,alarms,broadband

Am in New Zealand and contemplating IP security camera system with the provision of an IP telephone to make a new Broadband connection fully utilised. Are there any inherrent things to watch?

Telecom in New Zealand has a veritable monopoly still and has systematically frustrated other providers access to its copper network, I am concerned the real advantage of what I propose will also be frustrated by lack of competitors here and trying to hook in to an operational system along the way I propose.

My desire is to remotely monitor my home through, preferably, some sort of hand-held or, to a lesser extent, a remote computer.

Anyone have any ideas on a good source of supply to Australia or New Zealand?

Hello: You might want to check out our systems, which are fully LAN compatable. We do intrusion detection, alarm monitoring, and video surveillance over an IP connection. We use a telephone line for sending an alarm to a beeper, which then alerts us to look at the video. You could use the LAN connection to send an email to a beeper; however, our experience has been that the straight telephone connection will reach us in about 40 seconds, while the email takes as long as two minutes. For prompt response the telephone is preferable. You can view our system by getting on your favorite browser and in the locator bar type in You can view the camera by clicking left mouse button in the black area (outside the displayed windows) and select cameras.

This is one of many possible ways to accomplish this; however, our systems are very cost competitive. Email me if you have questions, at


Good luck, Celso Lujan
