Finally some sense from the gov.

Might celebrate New Year early and go out to the shed and REMOVE my rego label. RTA/RMS have made a good decision there. Now if we could just get them to approve multiple bike regos on one plate.... man I have started New Year early...

Security CCTV

Hi guys, I need help!!

I need to install some CCTV security cameras at my place. I've had my vehicle done over on the 1st day of the new year and it pisses me off I've lost over $65'000.00 worth of gear over the years and that's fucking it!!

I've worked too bloody hard and had to battle to get my gear and bikes etc to have some deadshit just come and take it!

A few years ago i was lucky enough to actually catch one culprit coming back to my property to have a second go in the same week. Fuck him.... It ended up that we had 5 police cars, dog squad and 2 ambulances come to visit. Quite a scene really
The guy wasn't an opportunistic theif, but a pro with lots of past history.

Now he's a fucked-up has been who is in jail after spending a month in hospital. (I feared for my life officer)

Now that i am getting more mature and have become less "volatile" the whole bashing the snot out of the perpetrator isn't probably the best option (considering i now have a Govt job)

I am after advice from someone in the know about CCTV systems and the biggest bang for the buck.


I have seen all of the eBay listings but would like advice from someone who knows.
  • What type of system
  • Minimum resolution to be any good at all
  • How good is IR for night time
  • Does the motion sensing work?
Please help.

I am all ears

Cheers,
Rob

i know a bit

Swann is good value for money spent
i have a 500 gig hd on a recording option that loops over it self every week ......4 camera's infrared ..with good distance ..up to 30 mtrs clear
i spent in the range of 400 bucks and i added 2 more camera's so another 100 bucks

remember you get what you pay for ...i found the swann systems good value with good camera's
stay clear of ebay ... the spy-shop will point you in the right direction but expect to pay in the realm of 1,000 to 1500 for a good system

here is the package i use

http://www.infronttech.com.au/cctv-s...-cctv-kit.html

i was lucky enough to pick it up from tricky Dicky's on special with only 2 camera's
good luck with it

A Windchester 45-70 connected to a trip wire would cost about half that.

including backhoe hire.

The problem with CCTV footage is that you still have to work out who it is on the footage and your gear is still gone. Best option is to have it live feed to your iphone so you can keep tabs at all times.

Otherwise put a six foot fence right around your property, keep the gate locked at all times, get some big mastiff crosses that are bred for gaurding. That will stop all but the professional theif who is targetting something he knows you have.

If your dead serious, in my opinion one of the best security measures would be to add a lot of crudely hand painted signs with religious and political rants on them, throw a couple of intruders will be shot dead, amongst them for good measure. Don't mow the lawns and leave rusty junk around the place.

No serious thief is going to even think twice about breaking into the home of a nut job.

I'm listening fellas

Thanks Sean-O and Baillsy, and i think Phil . The reason i want to record the guys is so that i DON'T have to scalp them

I quickly worked out that the eBay stuff was 99% shit and after further research also came across the SWANN gear.

Sean-O, does yours allow you to pick-out a guys face at night time? I would love to see some recorded night time image.
I do remember you putting up that link to Dick Smith ages ago but never thought i'd need it!!

Any more input will certainly be taken on board.

Cheers,
Rob

There is merit in the madness!
You do make some good points there CnB.

I have had a win, in that my neighbour has agreed to put a gate in our fence so his border collie can patrol both of our yards. That's a bloody good start i thought!

Not a good start to the new year Rob, but hopefully if you get some preventitives set up the low life thieves will pick an easier target - our unit used to get knocked off quite regularly (once or twice a year) before we bought it, and we've been done once for about $15,000 worth of stuff - all covered by insurance but it's still a pain in the ass and some of the things taken aren't replaceable. Since we've had our alarm system installed and a couple of dogs in the back yard we haven't had a problem.

In my experience it is far better to stop thieves getting to your gear in the first place, than to hope of recording them and giving the information to police after the fact, the end result most of the time even if they track down the mongrels is that your stuff is still gone and then they get a light smack on the wrist from the court. That said at least if you give the authorities some evidence and they catch the idiot, they might be able to link it to other crimes in the area.
