What sort of security camera would people reccomend that can be monitored via the web, but didn’t constantly send pictures via the wbe using my bandwidth all the time? It would be good if they alerted you when they detect motion and then they send images via the web, or you could request streaming when you wanted.

I bought a pack of 3 ip cameras from Kogan, about $150. Easy to setup either with cable or wifi. Then you install eyeSpy on some old clunker pc in the shed and enable recording when movement is detected. It’s not too hard.

If you mean this 3 pack (http://www.kogan.com/au/buy/wireless-ip-security-camera-3-pack/) then it’s not much of a bargain. The CMOS is only 0.3MP, the output is only 640×480 at 15fps, and that resolution will be much lower effectively in lower-light because of signal noise. Most of what you’re paying for is the fancy software controlled pan and tilt mechanism instead of the actual guts of the device which is the imaging sensor and processor. The camera is also not built to go outside which limits placement.

My understanding is you need to login and initiate a stream and/or some have motion detection that can trigger recording/streaming according to preset parameters. However check the particulars for each model.

As for what model, something like the ACTi D72 looks good. Unlike a lot of the current retail models you see around Canberra, it isn’t restricted by poor night vision or old-fashioned VHS quality video. Can do full HD at 30fps, or 2k at 15fps. Uses PoE so you can wire it up yourself with a single cable and the dome is IP and IK rated. Don’t have this model so can’t specifically recommend it, but based on the specs and sample footage, for $300 it looks really good.

And some Claymores.

That’s the spirit!

Costco sell Swann systems !

Same ones Dick Smith sells. The wired systems are cumbersome and use old tech, the wireless systems cheap, nasty and don’t work. Total junk.

Little buggers only look quite young from what I can see.

Go for a power over ethernet model and you minimise the install costs and wiring and add some useful features like remote recording and monitoring. Best bet is to search online for some good ones at a god price, the junk Dick Smith sells won’t last a day and won’t work that day anyway.

I might do some costing as well, just as long as its not to bloody complicated to set up.

They looked very familiar with where they were walking. Not too much looking around.

My thoughts, they have been there before

What a couple of thug clowns. Terrible. I really hope that someone vandalises their houses one day and see how violating it is that some people have no respect for the hard work and property of others.

That’s the problem with these thugs though – they have nothing of any worth so they will continue to disrespect others. That’s how they always keep the rest of us on the lookout.

Either the sun rises in Evatt hours earlier than the rest of Canberra or they’ve got the times very wrong…

Daylight savings. The time on the camera is probably out by an hour – which would make it roughly 5:40am. Plenty of light at 5:40am.

wow – walk up to your house in black and white and leave in technicolour. where do you buy one of those houses?

i hope the mongrels are caught.

You’d have to think that hat and backpack combo would be pretty distinctive.
