Getting ripped off by someone who lives in the neighborhood/area or who you may casually know really isn't that unusual.

My neighbor had that happen twice and one of the guys I play softball with had it happen also. I've been lucky...so far.

Who would know better about when you go on vacation or work or wherever then someone who lives near you? Not a nice thing to think about but it is a fact.

Yeah thats weird because the same thing happened to my sister who lives in Cedar Hill. The kid who lived across the street and his merry band of lowlifes broke into her house while they were gone on vacation. Before anyone brings it up, he's white and so were the other two.

I agree, it happens more often then not to be someone who lives close or knows the person who they rob some how.
Truly amazed-

It's also about who YOU decide to let into your life. Usually these things are an inside job. People get jealous about what you have. NEVER announce your plans on Facebook. I keep cameras around the perimeter of the house and get alerted to movement right on my smart phone.
at the stuff people put on their pages. When they're going on vacation, where they work, and on and on. What's happened to using some common sense.
I live near Washington/Lindbergh and there were two houses broken into on my street by--you guessed it, kids that live the next street over whose family has lived there a very long time. I just don't get it, used to be you knew your neighbors and looked out for each other. Really, really sad!

Ditto the cameras. I've got them inside and out linked to my computer also.

If you are thinking about it, and want to try it, you can by a compact game camera that is motion activated and put it on a shrub or tree. The take good pics. You just plug in a cable to your computer and viola there it is.

I have a couple and slide them into plants inside the house and also air returns to take close facials at key locations. In the house plants you can hide them in spanish moss around the base. The good ones have time stamps also.

I don't want to give out all of my secrets, but you can tape them behind dresser mirrors and cut a little window out of the silver backing so that the camera and the motion detector work--do it a bit lower than normal eye level. Burglars spend a lot of time looking through dresser drawers. When you are done with your fun you can just glue the backing back on. You can do the same thing with pictures and clocks.

Rev-have you used that system? Sometimes that Amazon stuff is kinda sketchy even though highly rated. You really want a camera that gives you facial detail enough to make an ID.

HH, I have a camera in a smoke detector in my hallway with a "macro" lens--it really gets the face tight. You would have to crawl down the hall to escape it. Good also if you have a teenage daughter who might have guests if you know what I mean.

I have..and you are correct in that you get what you pay for. It's fairly high def within 65ft..in the dark under IR much less so. It captures license plates and faces fairly well. The thing I like about it is that it alerts me to movement through my cell then connects me to the cameras to view that movement. Some of the higher quality cameras can run $300 a piece. SO if you're considering buying cameras...definitely know that a $1200 system and a $300 system are vastly different in what you get. It all depends on what you want. Samsung makes a really good system as well for about $600 with 8 cameras. However, I was surprised at the video quality on this system for the price.
Good to know, it says its 480 video resolution, which would be pretty darn good. They don't mention fps. If what is said is true, and it has 25 or so fps, that would be an outstanding deal if the gear is decent quality!!!!
