My thought was that one might be able to hack something together based on one of these wireless video cameras (or similiar).

http://www.dlink.com/products/?model=DCS-1000W

Supposedly they have a mode that only takes video when motion is detected, although I don't know how sensitive they are.

The big issues seem to be:

- Power. How to get enough battery life or lowest power drain so you can leave it out there for awhile.

- Storage. Storing video in low power is no easy trick, largely because you don't want whatever your storing on (hard disk, CF) to be on all the time, but yet it needs to "power up" quickly enough to catch whatever event is going on.

- Mother nature. Keeping dust and moisture out of your rig.

I'm not aware of any commercial products yet, but with CF getting so cheap, and with higher energy density in batteries in the future. I suspect a simple device is not that far off.

I once thought it might be possible to rig the whole thing to a satelite dish, because there are now satelite internet providers. problem is that most of these upstream bit rates are no more than 128kbps, which is not enough to stream video...
