    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...
