For the first five years I used the 3Com Home Connect / Inside Out Networks Watchport V which worked in near total darkness and had a good quality picture but there's no driver update. After two more years using the Apple iSight webcam which was very low quality, I am now using the Logitech® Quickcam® Vision Pro which has a much sharper image than the iSight although the night images are much darker than the 3Com. I'm very grateful to Michael Apitz of Schömberg, Germany, for having suggested the camera. Software is the excellent EvoCam from www.evological.com.
