If you need a web-based camera that rocks, then this is a great choice, because it sort of, well, rocks. The iBaby Monitor M6 ($199.95) swivels and spins, but if you manipulate the controls the right way, you can also make it rock.

I've used the Lowe's Iris home automation system for quite a while and though the technology is decent, the interface is lacking. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to try the Piper from Icontrol for an extended amount of time, and I really like it. It addresses many of the deficiencies in the Iris system.

Instead of a separate motion detector, environmental (temperature, humidity, light, and sound) sensor, hub, and camera, the Piper has that all in one sleek unit.
