another new home camera that is motion activated

Post by dean on Thu Nov 19, 2015 6:44 am

this one is quite good, free online storage for the last 12 hours or ten bucks for a week.   it looks like a tablet so you can place it on any surface tiled up with its rest or on a wall.   It is $300.00 and well worth what it can do for this price...
when anyone enters the location it can be set/programmed to send a notification to you or set it if unplugged it sends a message to you and so on, again the past hours or days pictures were recorded.

Home security cameras can provide a sense of, well, security, but there's something Orwellian about having a lens staring at you like a prop out of an episode of The Prisoner. A more discreet solution is something that doesn't look like a camera and, better yet, combines some other functions to make it more welcome. One example is the Sentri home monitoring system that combines a motion-activated camera with the looks of a digital information center. We powered one up to see what it could do.

from the VV

----------------------------------------
2-18-2014 Report of the Security Meeting for Homeowners
The purpose of this meeting was to give information about increasing the security of the community by augmenting the services of local and state police with private security by Seguridad Privada Grupo Lince. They provide security for The Shoppes at La Paz, Chedraui, Becq Construction Company who build in La Paz and Cabo, and others.
They offer three types of guards: commercial, business, and country. All three have security equipment: radios, handcuffs, batons and first aid supplies, but no guns. "We don't believe that security officers should carry guns." They train in Brazilian Jiujitsu and in police holds. They drive cars in town or quad motorcycles to patrol the beach or neighborhoods in the country.

This security would offer rapid observation of break-ins, apprehension and detention of thieves, notification of the owner immediately, provision of the paperwork to press charges in a timely manner and assistance with the legal process (which is changing). The company would like to identify and detain thieves in this community to also increase security in more distant communities. They can also provide security for transporting cash to the bank, complete construction and man the security booth at the entrance to LV near the desal plant and provide fire response.

The cost of private security was the first question raised. Costs vary according to flexible levels of services ranging from one house or 2 or 3 houses during an owner's absence to 12-hour or 24-hour daily security full time for a larger neighborhood. For a neighborhood of 10 or so houses with one guard on a quad with radio and the above listed skills the cost would be $18,000 pesos monthly for 12 hour shifts, night or day. For 24-hour security it would be $32,000 pesos monthly for two 12–hour shifts. They accepted a recommendation to observe the natural grouping of neighborhoods for security purposes in this area and work out cost tables for different levels of service to give homeowners more precise information on costs.

Mr. Joaquin Leon reminds us that he has tried for a long time to get more police assigned to this area and has not succeeded. Consideration of the idea of hiring private security is foreign to the thinking of many ex-pat homeowners here. Many of us think of that as something for the very wealthy, which most of us are not. However, in Latin-American countries private security is a way of life for people of average socio-economic levels. Calculating a cost-benefit ratio will be possible when the cost per services table becomes available. More information to follow

Here is something to consider if you are concerned about criminals entering your house. I purchase a Drop Cam last summer for use in our house in the US. It is the simplest to set-up by far; takes about two minutes to get it up and running.

Pros: It can be controlled and viewed from anywhere in the world using your computer, ipad or smart phone. You can turn it on and off remotely to save bandwidth. You can purchase recording for as little as $5 per month. Those records are stored at their servers. You will receive a message if there has been a change in motion detection.

Cons: It uses a lot of upstream bandwidth (in English - a lot of internet capability). So, if you're sharing your internet, it will use up a lot of upload bandwidth! It is indoor only and I'm not sure about how much heat it can take. It's wide angle but the view cannot be changed since the mount is stationary.

Here is a link to Amazon for the full specs: http://www.amazon.com/Dropcam-Wi-Fi-Wireless-Monitoring-Camera/dp/B006P88VSE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372783806&sr=8-1&keywords=dropcam

An alternative would be a Wildlife Motion activate camera. They do take photos but are stored internally in the camera. Link: http://www.amazon.com/Simmons-Whitetail-Trail-Camera-Vision/dp/B006U0Z5FO/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1372784464&sr=8-5&keywords=wildlife+camera+motion+activated

low cost easy to instal

Post by dean on Fri May 31, 2013 8:48 am

For one gates and/or main doors should be alarmed, obviously they have to take the items.

Great ones for this that are easy to install are car alarms, and you can look for car alarms that you can buy the spare remotes for cheap. Basically any car alarm will work. and they have advantages, some have vibration sensors which would be great for doors and gates. Another nice thing is they work off 12v batteries so if there is no power they still work. and if you put in a walk in gate with a 12 volt electronic lock you have a remote to even allow you to enter via your remote.

But what you also need is a low cost motorcycle or golf cart battery, and a trickle charger, the small trickle charger.

I have listed where to buy 12 volt door strikes that you can use. I even have 2 spare if you want to see one and you can see one in action on my gate. I had the electronic door strike put in 14 years ago and I have replaced it one time. They are about $30.00 I think..

On my door/front gate when it is opened I used a wireless door bell that I set up to ring if anyone opens the door. Plus the door bell works off it. Mine has a range of 100 meters. Grant it this is not an alarm, but I know when someone enters my property day or night if I am here..

I also used an alarm like the car alarm to watch my valuable items in my trailer, computer, TV, safe. It was set always on, if you removed any one of these items the alram went off very loud. After being hit 2 times caught the thief the second one, I put it in. He came back and when he was prying out my safe it went off and he did not leave with anything. He really had a dilemma, alarm blaring, where does he run? if with items he would be obvious. So he has not been back in 8 years now that he knows I had an alarm. Before that every other year I was hit.

ideas on how to stop the recent rash of theft

Post by dean on Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:21 pm

hit reply to add your idea. (do not click on new post)

This is for us to discuss ways to stop theft. anyone can presently post but if there are spammers I will set it to members only to post. also we have the capability to make sections private for members only too if the discussion needs to be more private.

Everyone has ideas so lets start flushing them out.

I will start, since we have power at the street where we have lights lets put up some community cameras that store online for some period of time, say a week. This would require community money for the system, the electricity, the internet service at each location, as well as the online storage. Then same with putting some at locations in some dirt road escape routes where there are homes to have the equipment. This is just one suggestion but it is unfunded. So how would we we get funding? Will the local police allow such a system and so on.
