You know, I never even thought about asking my insurance company if there was a credit for home surveillance equip properties. Thanks for the suggestion.
I figure if the camers/surveillance system keeps the baddies out it'll be worth the bucks spent.
I'll probably run over to the home deport and pick up the boxes for the power outlets and through ceiling BNC connections. If I get most of that done before the gear arrives hopefully I can get it all installed this weekend.
