    Hello Shane,

    I don't think that would be supported with Windows Home Server (although one of the more experienced people will confirm or refute this).  However, if you have another computer on the network that has available slots, I would hook it up to that one instead.  Then forward whatever ports are necessary to allow you to check it remotely (per the instructions).  In this case, when they say "DVR Server" it's not the same type of server as Windows Home Server, so any computer will do (as long as it meets the requirements).  Plus it would depend on if you have any slots available in the server.

    This may be an option (or it may help with the monitoring of that system as well http://hq.dlink.com/whs ) It's an addin for WHS that allows you to monitor live feeds from cameras (and look at recorded video).

    Hope this helps, and have a great day:)
    Patrick.

    If it requires logging into the server desktop, it's definitely not supported.

    I think you'd be better off with a monitored alarm system. Many can be integrated into a home automation system, and they're available at a range of prices.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
