Skype Home Security !

Here’s a tip I picked up from Lifehacker.

How to use Skype as a ‘Dial In Home Security System’

1) Open two New Accounts.

2) On Account 1 add NewUser2 as your ONLY contact.

3) Login again as Account 1 and set as follows:
        Go to Tools-->Options-->Advanced-->(tick) Automatically Answer Incoming Calls-->

then go to Tools-->Options-->Video-->(tick) Start Video Automatically and Only People in My Contacts-->Save.
Leave this account online.

4) Log in as Account 2 from another Computer.
Call Account 1, this will now answer and start the video running, any one else calling this account, will not get activated or see your private Web Cam.
