Cu-SeeMe colleagues:

Our suite has an alarm that rings the University's Public Safety office
if the door is opened after hours (and staff don't disarm it within N
seconds, etc.). The suite also has a CU-SeeMe camera in the lobby.
What if Public Safety had CU-SeeMe linked to the phone alarm, to pop
up a window on a PC or Mac showing the inside of our office? They could
watch, listen, even make announcements....

Is anyone doing/thinking about any applications of CU-SeeMe technology
for institutional security monnitoring?
