Who knows what about outdoor security cameras

Hello all,

Things are good same old..been busy around the house yadda yadda.

After the power outage last friday from the storm we hunkered down.
Long story short some local punks decided it would be ok to rip my fence down and take some firewood..

Who knows what about outdoor CCTV.

I was thinking more about rusty nails and puncture wounds.

That is a great idea but you still got to lock your fire wood

I've got security cameras on three different buildings that I own. They're not as useful at catching people as you might think or hope that they would be. The cameras that we have inside of our warehouse are great. I can see everythign that my guys are doing. The cameras that we have in the underground parking garage on the other property that I own work great as well. The minute that you put a camera outside and they pretty much become useless. I've been able to retrieve footage of property being stolen but there was not enough detail to get license plate numbers off of the vehicle that was involved. During certain times of the day the glare from the sun makes the outdoor cameras useless. At night the video gets real grainy due to the low light. The sureveliance systems that we have aren't cheap DIY systems either. These are commercial grade professionally installed systems. You're probably better off spending some cash for a good wrought iron fence or a security system with outdoor motion detection!!

You should leave one of your dogs outside they are big enough to scare people off.

A friend of mine has one with 6 or 8 cameras and she can access them all thru her iPhone from anywhere... I saw a similar system in the latest Costco flier with multiple cameras and both iOS or Android access.

When we have an issue, we give the video to the local pd and they have equipment to enhance the video. In all they are good for monitoring, but not good to easily identify thiefs. Think of the bank cameras. Why cant they get a clear pic of a bank robber. We can take a pic of a house from outter space that is more clear then survelliance cameras inside a building. All boils down to cost.

Put a bunch of catch cans in your yard and maybe a motion activation device for your irrigation system.
