Christian, your wifi camera idea made me wonder if that would work for checking in on a senior parent, too.

We have rented from VRBO for years, and loved being in a HOME. We choose a different one each year. I'd hate to go back to a motel or condo, as it is sure sweet being in a furnished home, next to a cool vacation spot. We use google earth to verify the settings, and see what's around, to get great locations! Pictures and feedback help with the decision. Glad there's people willing to rent their vacation homes!

Cathy, you're right, the wifi cameras are great for a senior parent. I looked after my grandfather who had Alzheimer's for a couple of years before he passed. I was able to monitor him while I was at work via the cameras. Because they also have speakers, I could talk to him, "Grandpa, don't scratch your head!". He would say, "Oh, Ok." and it was very helpful. I could also check in on the other caregivers. Finally, it's also good for kids at home, baby, teens, etc... No more raging parties (at least in the living room) when the folks are away for the weekend.

Capeanner, it's true that it may be a little creepy for some to have the cameras in house. But if you had the camera recording inside the house and someone broke into the home while you were away, you'd be glad you had the evidence. Same with the garage, you could see who took the power washer. I guess everything is a compromise at some point, and is part of a larger discussion about privacy vs. security.
