    Hopefully, you're ham antenna friendly, too! ;)

    You really need some acreage to install a respectable antenna farm, though.

    Maybe the uploaded footage played back via that website is just low quality? My friend has a 720p Ring doorbell and he’s shown me vids it’s taken and they looked good enough, certainly could make out my ugly mug

    In California, the liability associated with someone (even a thief) getting hurt on your property would far exceed the cost of all lost Amazon packages.

    I bet!... In CA they be like: "Do you have home owners insurance?"



    Notes:
    1) I didn't find a better video of this.. not a fan of viralhog..
    2) Cloud cameras - neither the nest camera nor the ring cameras took time stamps!!!

    I'm sure you need to be very careful taking any action whatsoever against a thief because you could be charged with assault, and held liable for any injuries the thief may incur.

    In the video above, I wonder if the thieves could sue for damages on the grounds that having "stealable" packages in plain view on your property constitutes an "attractive nuisance".

    The more videos I see like this, it just stuns me that everyone isn't thinking of having cameras that can detect license plates.
    It has become my #1 priority for the system I will be installing.

    As LPR cams become more common, the crooks will just disguise their plates or use stolen ones.

    It seems like our various cameras are most effective when people aren't aware of the whole idea of security cameras.

    As they become more common, the bad guys will adapt their strategies to hide their identities

    I'm interested in LPR cams as well, but it's a challenge since there are HOA rules about my mailbox/post. Can't modify it. And my house is set back far enough from the street, that getting a good angle will require a long lens. OTOH, perhaps I should put in a nice hardscape close to the sidewalk with HOA approved block structures that just happen to be a good place to tuck some discrete LPR cameras into. :highfive: It would also have cameras looking back at the house. Thieves may not hunch up and cover their faces as much when facing away from the house...
