A couple of weeks ago I caught this guy on video in the middle of the night. The video is useless, but he did leave when he saw the camera, and he didn't steal the bike (forgotten outside on a fluke) that he was apparently after. He ignored my motion activated floodlight, which was interesting to me, and continued advancing 20 feet or so further onto my property. But when he saw the camera, he was out of there immediately. Truth is he could have gotten away with taking the bike, so it was lucky that he got spooked. I'm adding two floodlights next week. I'm going to replace my current cameras (1080p analog cams) and I'm leaning toward getting some 8MP IP cameras because the new floodlights should light up the area enough to take advantage of the additional pixels. I've been reading the Cliff Notes, (thanks Looney2ns), and learning a lot. Any thoughts on my plan are welcome. I have plenty of time to modify it and would welcome feedback on getting high-quality facial recognition.
