CCTV for Front Door?
For safety purposes, I've had the idea of placing some sort of camera with audio capabilities (hidden) by the front door with a screen somewhere in the house. I'd like to do this wireless if possible using the outside light fixture as a power source for the outside part.

That way, when someone knocks on the door I can see who it is and talk to them to ask them what they want without actually opening the door.

Is there a kit for this that can be purchased somewhere?
Seems like this would be a nice safety feature to have.

There are a lot of systems out there. I have installed several for home and commercial. Here is a site I have ordered from which sells just about anything you might want ... many are wireless.

Also, make sure your system is equipped with a good night vision. The first system I installed didn't have this and at night, all I saw was a black screen.
