    Suggestions for security camera
    Ok I'm looking to get a security camera for a room
    I'd prefer it can be plugged in to a wall outlet, not battery operated.
    It must record video to a SD card.
    Not interested in monitoring what is seen on the web or from a remote location.
    Just want to be able to pull the card and see what's on it when inserted in to my mini-mac.

    Any suggestions?

    I'd also prefer one that is not motion activated. Would rather just turn it on/off.
    Perhaps I'm asking for something that is not available.

    Getting the hang of the camera. VLC, free download video player, works with the footage very well.
