There are a number of reasons why some homeowners find camera systems an attractive option aside from the oft-stated convenience and security. Some, for instance, find their ?guests? interesting, informative (especially if there are children in the household), perhaps even entertaining (a friend recently lent me a tape of burrowing owls ? they?re really neat, one might even say comical little creatures!).
