Sound Recording


I am interested in using my PC to record sounds on the computer for security.

My webcam is set up using motion and I would like to buy and install software to record sounds using a similar concept. Motion works thorugh detection of movement, this is a very good point as even a time lapse setup can use a lot of space and if you want to keep the images remotely then you can quickly run out of space.

Is there any software available to record sound when a noise above a certain level of dba or imilar is detected? Even if this was used to trigger constant recording until a time period of no noise was detected this would be good.

Any Ideas?

Many Thanks,

Mmm, not really fit, but teamspeak can record mic input. When no level, it record too, but, as u probably know, recording a "zero" signal don't use any disk space.
