http://www.corndogcomputers.com/facetools/ has the terminal hack to enable autoanswer from a predetermined caller.

defaults write com.apple.FaceTime AutoAcceptInvitesFrom -array-add <iPhone number, or AppleID>

just use the app iCam and set up all your cameras and view them on your iPhone... No reason to code...

Is there no way to tell the script to only auto accept a specific user?
