This might be of interest to you Pete...
I just got a couple of security cams for outside and one for inside....made by wyze cam, and not too expensive....
you can get three for less than a hundred bucks direct from the company and just a few dollars more from amazon

They have have some nice features such as motion detection recordings that you can access with any smart phones, with alerts on your phone, which I wouldn't recommend except for inside cameras when you are out of town...


Here is an example of motion activation in front of my house......

The resolution is so good that at that distance with my phone I can zoom in and read the license plate

That's before the exhaust blurred it.

Less camera time and go fix that speed bump across the road before someone hits the roof and breaks their neck. . . . your's is fine, perhaps a bit more speed will smooth out the bump.

That speed bump is because the neighbor is to lazy to clean up what the city plow left in front of his driveway

Every man for himself kind of place?? In my 'neighborhood' (when I had one) the people with vehicles would pull a a few old tires (3 at the most). Leave it at the main road and somebody coming in would hook up. No ruts and no snow-plow, today somebody on the block you live on would have access to a skid-steer and do all the driveways on the block.

Small town Alberta died about 1960, about the time you started to have to buy fertilizer in order to not starve during the winter,

????


The neighbor to my left was doing her own driveway till she reached 84....Then she hired a contractor to do it

she always refused my help, except for the city plow snowbank....
Then she used a contractor until she died two years ago at 92

You didn't mention their gender, that was my way of asking. I would have just done Grannies and then asked permission, what is she going to do, call the cops??
I also would have approached the contractor to see what he would charge to all the other ones and get the money from the ones that prefer machines during heart attack season.

I might drive the snow eating weather away. Do you still mow the lawn after a snowfall??

You wait until March and do it all at once?

Yup. It's time to video up behind the garage.

Apparently I'm missing out on all the action.

I woke to cops pounding on the door asking for any video of the alley.

It's becoming a common knock.

The Wyze Camera has very good night vision....I can't show you now because the camera is positioned inside filming through the window until spring and the infrared lights cause a glare in the glass so I had to turn off the night vision.
Come spring,I will build a protective box for it outside.

This is my inside camera set up in a central location, that anyone going through the house has to pass in front of the camera... and it has motion activated recording to a a memory card
Here is a screen grab in total darkness with all the lights off...

you should install one that fires bullets at the intruders.

I wouldn't want to hurt the neighbor who might come to check the house once in a while I'm gone



Since it can be set up to send me phone alerts when it detects movement

I could have a shotgun set up and triggered from my phone also....

A motion sensing proggie on the lap top cam or USB cam on the PC will also do.

just sit it in a relevant window if one wants to see outside.
