We have a real problem down here in North Florida (Holmes Country and surrounding area). According to some locals with connections to the police, the federals have sent a bunch of 'drug warriors' down here to solve the drug problem.
So far, people have encountered drug warrior "ninjas" trespassing on homesteads in full blackout camo while looking for drugs or something else (at night). Still other people have had their property broken into with nothing stolen. Others have managed to obtain partial surveillance video.
I have my property set up with interlocking video feeds but a few holes were exploited leading to a "break in". Technology changes so fast today so I'm looking for suggestions on gear to secure my homestead. The main goal is to capture some useable footage for the web and the courts.
So........ what's the best value in black and white hi-res vid cameras today? What's the best value in infrared illuminators? What's the best value in desktop computer-based DVR cards?
Is there anything else you can recommend? Sure would appreciate any suggestions.
