Thanks a great idea. Any recommendations on which unit?

You could look at Brickhouse Security. I only tried one of their cameras and it was a little black box- the video quality was so-so but they may have something better. For a wired PIR (motion sensor), I used a couple of Speco and they were decent. Not IR illuminated, but decent in normal light unless the light was aimed at it.

Our system isn't hi-def. And we need better lighting in any event. But here is our pumpkin thief from a couple of years ago. Anyone know him.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Yeah, I JUST started reading the camera manual and there are for sure a lot of settings that need to be gone through. There is no doubt when it comes to surveillance cameras you get what your pay for, or a lack there of.

I kind of wish I would have passed on the 2 default cameras in the package but we'll see what they look like once I get them installed and setup. If nothing else, like Jim recommended, they will be come multi-coverage cameras.

Possibly. But to get slightly back on topic, I think with more lighting, I can keep the subpar cameras.

Maybe an external IR source?

By 'predicts the future'. do you mean "catch them in the act, instead of whole they're running away afterward"? DVRs have a video buffer that's always receiving signal and when it's set for motion detection (not constantly recording), it saves the video, starting at about 5 seconds prior to the motion event.

I have captured videos of break-ins where the person had to have known he was on camera (his mom is married to the bar/restaurant owner) and the place had indoor cameras that were easy to see with a triple ring of LEDs for IR illumination. The second time, when he stole all of the TVs and was at the front of the bar and filling a waste basket with bottles of booze, he would look directly at the closest camera about every 30 seconds. Nice, bright video of the DB.

Sometimes, people think some of the cameras are dummies, so they take their chances. That's a good thing because is makes them do really stupid things in front of the real ones.
