Look for a driveway motion detector. Northern Tool and other online
stores have one for about $80. Better than the old electric eye as you
don't have to lineup two parts or worry about dust collecting on the
reflector. I have customers that have mounted them about three feet high
facing across a doorway so they can detect "little ones" coming or going.

On 12/15/2011 4:12 PM, Bob Crothers arranged the binary bits such that:
I just moved my retail store into a new location. Many benefits to this,spend
most of them financial, but the cool thing is that I once again have an
office. With a door and everything!
Which causes a problem. I cant see the entryway when I'm in the office.
In the past, I've used a simple wireless door chime. But at the new
location I want to leave the door open.
I'm thinking of a webcam with motion detection. But I do not want to
much money. I'm thinking $50-$75 is my price range.systems
There are so many options I'm getting a headache. But I don't need fancy
(read: Dont want to spend a lot of money). A wireless Web cam in a
different room plugged into the wall for power. I've got extra old
that could act as a server. I want to be able to view from inside myto
office and I'd like a sound to play when somebody is detected.
Even an old fashioned "electric eye" would work. But I've not been able
find something like that. They have to still exist, but where?pocket!
The thing I've learned over the last few years of owning a store is that
money is no longer an abstract concept. It is right out of my back
