Thief Aware!

It uses a video capture device to monitor a target area. When the program detects motion, it begins recording. It records for one minute, then checks for continued motion.
Would also presumably work well for a bachelor's bedroom.

Any web-cam you buy comes with software that can do this, especially the $100 IP-cameras that you plug right into your home or business LAN that have their own internal web-server.
I've been using them for the past 5 or 6 years to record motion-triggered activity from several of these cameras at my home and office. The software is called "IPView / Pro", sometimes branded by Trendnet.
Usually all you can do is set a general sensitivity level for the entire image to be triggered on, but some versions of this software allow you to define boxed areas or zones in the image and those are the areas that are processed for motion detection. Any motion happening outside those zones is ignored.
The software can also send an e-mail with a static image when it detects motion.
