It is enjoyable to hear and see what is going on outside when I am in the house. I don't mean to belabor having this video surveillance but it serves more purposes than simply watching for criminals to invade the estate. I can finally hear things from outside. This house is so well insulated that Ron and I could never hear a thing and neighbors, UPS, FedEx or frozen products salesmen were at the door before I could get my wig on. Plus now I might be able to catch the kids busting my mailbox with ball bats. We have lost three in the eight years we've been here. Oh and I might be able to tell what stray dogs are messing with my chickens and prove it in a court of law.
Today I thought I would add what the mounted cameras look like outside. I hired a local fellow to put the cameras up for me and he was diligent in his efforts to hide the cords as best he could. Basically having some way to tame the cords that have to reach AC outlets is a concern. Of course he went to Ron's shop and found all kinds of things to aid in his endeavors.
|The electric cord runs down the back of this pipe and is fastened with those zip lock thingies.|
|All an intruder would have to do is unplug the cameras but first they would be captured on film. I will probably place a decorated milk can in front of the outlet. He used some "U" clips to hold the cord across the bottom.|
