Gonna give these a shot. Good reviews on Amazon. Can store 1080P video to an SD card or to the cloud, solar power means you can mount anywhere.
Don't know if it'll work with other cellular based services like Ring or SimpliSafe, but I just want video email alerts and the ability to view remotely. Since we have a Ring doorbell already, I'll probably go with the Ring security set up although I'm looking at Cove as well.
not only is it probably doable, but its probably marketable. Sure you're gonna get the local sheriff to visit, they'll be laying on thier stomach asking you if its clear...I think you need to get the robot voice over from the robocop movie. Motion detectors now days could do tracking, as soon as it detects something start spinning up the gun. A laser pointer for good measure, not one, three like the predator movies.I wish I could get a dummy model...
Have it speak and rotate... I know I would run.
There is a 150 foot blind spot from the street all the way up the second garage, so, no.
Driveway alarm goes off, you don't know if it's an animal or an asshole.
A guy who reviewed the one I linked to on Amazon mounted one on a remote weather station. His review was very positive. Can't imagine your set up is much different. Set it up on a post or in tree along your driveway facing the area you want to view.well, unfortunately no current motion sensing cameras are likely going to have a range of 150'
id say maybe 30-50' at most for actually detecting motion. most are in that range. might want to consider a hardwired one that will record all the time, and simply notify you when it detects motion. at least in this case if something happens outside its range or it misses something you can always go back to watch the full video.
Any issues with Ring? We have the doorbell cam, but the delay is ridiculous sometimes. Damn near makes it useless for actual security.
I do. I moved to a rural area so I don't have people snooping on my yard activities. None of their damn business. I'm sure not going to give Google analytical data for free that they turn around and make money from.i really could care less if amazon/google/whatever wants to stare at my yard.
