Wireless surveilance system..

Hi, all, this is a bit of a random night post, but, i need your help...i need a cheap way to make a surveilance system.. 

I have a CCTV camera module that looks like that, and no, it's not wireless, doesn't have a receiver. It only has Audio/Video cables and a power cable. Is there a cheap way to make this work using bluetooth? I only need to spy from 5 meters away. Btw, i want to be able to receive the video from my laptop. 

If there is no possibly cheap way, how 'bout a webcam? Would there be a way to make it work then? Thnx for all suggestions and comments, night!

just use a webcam connect it with your router (maybe a Wi-Fi TL WR-703N) and use http://www.zoneminder.com/

You are able to watch the live stream in any webbrowser and record the stream as well.

After all, your motives are honorable (of course, so are your mother's motives.) In any case, I'd think it would be easier to hide the wires than that camera. Under trim is usually the easiest way. Like I mentioned in the SB, a PIR sensor and an audio cue or flashing light would probably serve you better than trying to watch a video feed all the time.

The cheapest i could find on Ebay is about 27$. Could there be a much cheaper way?

A simple solution would be to use a audio/video transmitter and resceiver. Kind of low tech compared to Bluetooth... but would do the job.

If you have no RCA plug on your laptop you shure find an adapter from a RCA to whatever you have.

Here the basic data-flow and modules involved:
