Monitoring a house over an internet connection


    I have an empty house which I'm planning on moving into. Unfortunately it's been broken into and vandalised a few times while it's been unoccupied. Can anyone recommend any hardware and software that will let me monitor the house over a domestic broadband connection?

    I'd like something that can detect movement then send pics by email. Would also be good if I could just login to the system now and again and check what's going on. I have an old laptop which runs XP which I'd like to build the system around.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks for looking.
