Anyone got any reccomendations? Must be free or very, very cheap!

The software that came free with the USB mini-webcam is okay but like any that work on pixel changes, it's a bit variable between hyper sensetive and completely blind.
It also can only do one Camera at a time and loads the CPU to 100% when running.

Motion (http://motion.sourceforge.net/) is great, although not for windows (and I pressume you want an app for that system)
(and btw, this (http://www.firestorm.cx/fswebcam/) tool is also great, gives great quality pictures du to technique of getting it; but no win...)

However, I have something that'll interest you: Dorgem (http://dorgem.sourceforge.net/)

At work we used something called digi-watcher. http://www.digi-watcher.com/

It works pretty well. The reason we went for it over other offerings is that it had a superior recording-linked-to-motion algorithm.
