There any IP based cameras that don't need a dedicated DVR? Just some software and have the video dump to my media server?

The most important thing is that your software (NVR) will support the cameras that you choose. See this link for free NVR software:

Here is their website:

Funny you brought that up, we just bought our first IP Camera. Its a Motorola, feed comes though either a desktop computer, or via any Android or I-Phone device via an app from their app store. Camera was 89 bucks CDN, can pan, tilt (move around) has audio and temperature monitors. If it gets over 30C in the room it sends an alert to your phone or below I think 20C it sends an alert to your phone. Can record video / take a pic and save it either to your PC or your Phone, heck even has 2 way audio. Oh and can play Rock A Bye Baby too. We turned an old Android Smart phone into a permanent screen for it, so we don't have to keep switching our normal phones over to it and back.

Kinda looking for a similar thing.

A friend wants a single camera aimed at her doorway (single entrance to a condo). Is there a standalone single DVR or is there a light device that will handle it? Heck, if I could figure out how to make a Raspberry Pi record and communicate via the network (I'm not a programmer), that would actually be kinda perfect.

I use foscam. You can send video by email or upload by ftp. There are more option I have not used.
I use the motion detection to email images for security.
You can also access the cameras remote over the web.
I know there are other brands that do the same thing.

Loki was asking for storage software. With the link I posted, you can get viewing software for free as well as NVR software (Network Video Recorder) to point to a specific computer or server to store your video.

Or I will be happy to sell you some Onssi software for around $1500

They're marketing that as a baby monitor? Who's gonna be the first moron to leave their baby at home while they go out and "monitor" their baby from a night club or something. Using it as a monitor when you are home with the baby just seems overly complicated and stupid. Just walk in the room and have a peek. Duh. I can also see people using these for stalking and spying quite easily. Very creepy.

Having said (typed?) all of that, I think it's pretty cool. Would be great for keeping an eye on things while you are away, but how would you get there in time if you spot something wrong? I mean, if you're close enough, you don't need the camera...

I'd use it for communicating with the family when I'm out of town.

Or stalking.

"Monitor Type Video
Screen/Display Size Not Applicable "

Why do these things never say what resolution they record in?
I was thinking this could be good for security too, aimed at a door.

LOL, I know you were kidding but no its not meant for you to leave your kids at home, it for a working parent to peek in on their kids while either the other spouse or baby sitter / nanny is taking care of the baby. For me, I am often out of ear shot of her bedroom. We have a large house and if I am downstairs out in the garage while she is upstairs I her room watching Busy town or Mickey Mouse Club, I have my cell phone in my pocket or on my desk, and I can not only hear what she is up to, but I can see it as well. Lets say she is doing something really cute and one parent has just got to share it with the other parent, they can call them and have them quickly log in and take a peak and watch it live or record the stream and watch it later. The camera also has infrared (hope I spelled that right) night vision, so even in a pitch black room I can see here at night, heck its good enough that I can even see how much of her bottle she finished off before she went to sleep.

Night vision
Pan / Tilt Camera by remote
Colour Video Stream
2 Way Sound so you can talk to who you are seeing.
Internet Streaming
Phone App to view and Talk over the Phone
Built in kids Lullaby's
Temperature Monitor for the room the camera is operating in, displayed on the screen.

All for under a hundred bucks.

Only catch, you MUST own either an Android or I-Phone to set it up. There is no direct setup from a PC or Laptop. (not even a USB port on the camera) You have to load their application to the phone and be standing next to the camera, while on your home WiFi connection. It then locks the camera to your network. When you want to view the camera in a browser you don't punch in your IP, you punch in their website enter your username and password then it connects you. However when viewed locally the app connects directly to your WiFi and then direct to the camera, so no internet is needed.
