There's an app for using your laptop's camera as a nanny cam, you can watch and record it live on your iPhone. App is called iCam. I think it's $5. Works great, but maybe not for your needs.

You can ask in their forums, the skjm.com forums.

I know this doesn't answer the original question, but I'm not sure I'd want my iPhone 4 left on view at home while I was away for a week...

If you have a Mac at home you can call yourself with Facetime from your iPhone and use the iSight on the iMac to check in...
