Ok ..might hang out here a while ..i have  passing
interest always in security  and  a break in to my
garage and a bike stolen from garden shows theres
scum around

I purchased wireless cams , crap sent them back

I purchased WIRED cams , never got around to installing
as it turns out i have concrete eves are a  nightmare to drill
through . also the software looked buggy and pcture
not great so currently dont seem worth the effort

I purchased a 90 software card out of maplin only
to find that want that good either

I was recommened a LOREX card but dont seem to be
available at a decent price in UK, not got round to
purchasing from states yet.

Does anybody here agree LOREX card is worth a try , they
are decent quality at decent price without going professional
route with professional prices ?

Ok also want to protect the garden on the cheap , want to set
up a kinda sting to try and catch the scum ..any ideas

Never tried LOREX but have done a few budget installs for customers using
their own PC to monitor cams. If you have enough Hdd space and a decent
card, all you need is a decent camera and you are away. Don't try to save
money on the cams as the quality of images will be depleted (especially
night view). You get what you pay for in this industry.
Good luck.

Hi
Agree with Paul you only get what you pay for but if you paid 90 for a card
consider a buget DVR for around 110 they have 4 input and an 80gig drive
AND come with all the software you need for real time monitoring,just
network into your PC.
As for your garden there are some nice radio quad pir's out there designed
for external use (IP 56) these could be used to turn on lights camera's or
if complient with HSE and BS rules a high speed Gatlin Gun.(!!!)

HTH & good luck

For a domestic dwelling I think that you should be fine with a 4 channel DVD
+ reasonable quality cameras with PIR lights illuminating the area.
Take care with positioning as the Iris of a camera will shut down if looking
into a light.
An audible alarm generated from the PIR's or a break beam sounding inside
the house but loud enough to be heard externally should complete the system.

Cheers John.

 "break beam sounding inside the house "

I like the sound of this but concernd about false alarms
..i liked the sound of a unit called roboguard , two pirs
at different heights but expensive at 600

Any ideas for homebuild , wanting something cheap
but reliable ?

its surprising how much sleep you lose to these scum
do no real harm but REALLY dont like the idea of people
creeping about especially with kids in the house

if only .i beleive in texas its legal to shoot trespassers but good old UK
eh !

I found an item on ebay , you put  a blank cartridge in it , im considering
putting something tasty out and buying it to attach just for the fun of it
to see the scum run but not sure if legal

Used to live in a flat , moved to a semi , never used to have these worries
but its all very open and very easy for the scum to wander up the drive
i dont want to turn the place into fort knox , but its very easy to take
these
incidents out of propertion and become very  paranoid

I have 4 cams and spare PC , but the cards seems to be the failing
... budget ones off ebay dont seem to have ny real configuration and
some of butons in chinese , the maplin one wsnt much better in my opinion

Anybody out there got an old what they consider GOOD card for PC
they want to stick on ebay for me to buy?
