    Who has experience with IP cameras? I need to place 2 or 3 cameras in my showroom and have the ability to view them from any location and also have the video recorded.

    Any suggestions on a cheap camera/software package to do this? I have computers and network hardware I can dedicate for the job.

    I use ZomeMinder myself
    I have 4 IP Cameras connected to it seams to work fairly well

    It might not be the easiest thing to setup if you don't have any experience with Linux

    ZoneMinder is free http://www.zoneminder.com/

    They are IP based? I've seen quite a few cheap IP cameras on ebay. If you've had good luck with any of them, let me know what they are.
