My dad is one of those difficult to shop for people because he buys what he needs or wants himself. Last night, he mentioned that he did need a new belt. He also said that he had already replaced his belt once this year, but they always seemed to crack & need replacing often. He wears a separate belt to work, so this would just be for time off.

IP Cameras or security system?
So, in a follow up to this question
, we've moved into another house, also without a security system. (Much better neighborhood, and a watchful older neighbor across the street, however) The landlord is fine with us having a security system installed. However, my dad has an IP camera installed in his house, which takes photos of movement (also can track sound) and emails them to him.
Which do you recommend - ip cameras or security system? Any suggestions for either? [more inside]
