    Slow folder/file access when cameras are switch to HD - Synology NAS

    I'm running 10 Hikvision cameras (5*2332, 2*2432, 1*2632, 2*2342) and 1 old Sony SNC-DH160 on my 918+ without any lag, so the issue is not the number of cameras. I have standard 4Gb RAM, so it's not that either. I'm saving data to an old Seagate HDD which was designed for low power rather than...

    Wet thief

    Yeah, I've no doubt he is on drugs of some description. He's staring at the door in case the dogs come out after him.

    Big Bertha climate extinction

    They arrived at 20h34 and left again at 21h35. Then came back a few minutes later and stayed until 22h49. We get all sorts of weird stuff here. Often not quite so amusing.

    Yard sensors- Laser perimeter sensors or ?

    Your issue isn't trying to find out if someone is hopping the fence to get into your property there. They will not be put off or stopped by an alarm. The only thing that will stop them is greater violence and being willing, and capable, of using it first. To that end I suggest a Fox Terrier for...

    Day time smash and grab on a parked car in driveway

    Good question, but I think they would have carried on regardless. They knew what they were going after. Car pulled up and the thief came straight over to the spot. Didn't spend time looking at anyone else's garden/hourse/car. Note the black Mustang. Someone drives off in it after warming the car...

    The Dog Dump

    For the uninitiated: This is what a bitch looks like when having a pee... ...and this is what they look like when having a poo... Note the dog is trained to discharge faeces in the road, not on people's grass, or on the pavement.

    The Dog Dump

    Yup, as Parley said...that is a bitch taking a piss...not a dump. If she was taking a dump her ass would be quite high in the air and her back very arched. The tail would also be held differently. She's communicating with other dogs, and possibly other animals. That's why she's sniffing the...

    External IR Power

    I can't answer or comment on the splitter option, but for my Raytec IP IR lights I just power them with with a 30w PoE+ injector that can give them the 15w they need. I've not used a splitter before, so not sure if I would still be able to control the lights since they have their own IP address...

    Ha! Robbery foiled!

    Lots of grip when wearing those blue nitrile gloves and restraining people. Scuz is going nowhere once he has hold of him with those on. ;)

    Vehicle Burglary Suspect

    It looks like he doesn't go for the car in the top left of the picture. Why? What's unattractive about that one, and what draws him to yours? Both offer easy access from the road. The car looks further from the road than your pickup. Car facing the other way? More likely to be tools etc. in the...

    Couple of car crashes in a week.

    One of the golden rules from my biking days years ago...never overtake on a junction. I've seen a few friends wiped out like that in front of me.
