    I spent the weekend ( a few weeks ago ) cleaning up a huge wire mess. Over time I just let the rats nest get out of control.

    For less then $400.00 I purchased some Leviton products and got the job done.

    I documented the project on my blog..Photos, product#, etc.:

    In my case I needed:
    the Leviton 42 inch enclosure
    24-port structured media panel - used for ethernet and phone wiring.
    Multi-media Adapter bracket ( part 47612mma ) I used to mount my router, nas device, cable modem, and misc devices..
    8 way splitter from Control Cable for all my video runs. Both Sat. and cable tv.

    This is all I had to buy to get my job done.

    Do you have specific needs I could help you with? Are you planning a project? Give me an idea of your situation and I will see if I can help.

    best wishes...

    Oh. I see where we were getting mixed up.
    I don't have any specific needs, I just wanted to see what equipment you had in there..
    One thing that I need to eventually do is get some security cameras, and they need to be accessible from any place that has an internet connection, but I am still trying to figure out how to do that.
    I was thinking about streaming them to a website and having a log in. I dont know. Any ideas?

    A while back, I had a Dlink camera that had a web server ( so to speak ) built into it. It had pan, tilt, and zoom features. I just opened a port on my router and I could access it from anywhere...even a cell phone!

    I am sure they have come along way since I played w/ one...I think it was around 300.00.

    Regards..

    That is kind of what I am looking for, but I need four. Is there a system that does something similar?
