Right now, it's working nicely. Perhaps its worth releasing as free software, too :-)
It uses the motion package, because it's intended to:
a) Archive all the interesting stuff
b) Use as little bandwidth between the camera server and the computer with the watcher.
This way the watcher can watch many cameras.
It's a nifty thing, and it MUST be finished tomorrow, so I will probably shove it into freshmeat&co on friday.
