    This is a camera a bought 3+ years ago (no clue the specific camera other than dahua). This was before I got on this forum and had a clue. @victor18 held my hand getting things set up and has been extremely helpful. Hat's off to him and this forum. The cameras have been good for a while but I'm ready to reinvest/upgrade.

    These asshats have gotten into my cars more than 3 times in the past year and I'm sick of it. Yes- lock the car- but I don't have anything to steal and have too many kids going in and out of the cars. Time to upgrade and I've bought 3 new starlight cameras. Can't wait to see how they perform. I'm concerned the streetlight, which is in the background and has 2 other cameras on it (which is where the other 2 cameras are going), is going to produce too much light and not get the best performance out of the starlight camera?

    "This happened couple nights ago"

    This happens in my neighborhood quite often. I have been upgrading my cameras in order to get a better facial ID. This guy is pretty well outfitted for his "job". I could not tell by the pictures but most of the time they wear gloves at least where I live. I wonder if the beard if the beard was fake. Also it looked like he wore glasses. Maybe part of his disguise.

    First start by locking the freaking doors every-time you get out of the vehicle.
    By not locking it, you are giving them an incentive to come back often.

    He obviously found something interesting, and he probably took something.

    Think I'd have wiped the seats down with a Clorox wipe. One never knows....

    Ah yes, was waiting for this reply (as my 17 yr old says, thanks Captain Obvious). Yes, I do lock the doors and so does my wife. We have children of various ages as well as other kids on the street. As is typical, one of them, will forget something, or need something (iPad) and go in and out of the vehicle locking it...sometimes. And yes, at times, I do forget myself as does my wife (don't ask her).

    I'm a fisherman and believe, probably like these guys, if you are out on the water fishing, you can catch fish, if not, you never will...if you catch my...

    ...Soooo, the next thing I have up my sleeve is installing this train air horn I bought. Originally it was for something else but it is now going on the family Suburban, under the hood. It is so F'n loud that when i trialed it with my oldest son, cops came down the street 5 min later (success in my book!). I'll set up a switch under the dash which will be connected to the dome/door light. Flip the "on" switch and leave doors unlocked. When the asshat opens the door, the 200 psi airhorn goes off (I wish i could figure out a 10 second delay so he's all comfy in my truck going through my crap before it goes off -any techno nerds know how to do a 12v delay???). THIS would be youtube gold. It's in the works. I will definitely share on this forum.

    And crap, can someone send me the link to where we get discounted cameras b/c we're on this forum? Didn't know that! I should tighten up and keep up with things around here!

    I'm not sure it's the best idea, noise complaints and pissing off your neighbors won't help your cause... But if you do something like this, there's no reason to put it under the hood it might be more fun inside the car.

    As I stated in another thread regarding playing an audio clip to get the perp to look toward a cam for improving the chance of getting an ID, I'd prefer the unmistakable sound of a shell being racked into a pump action 12 gauge shotgun.

    Train air horns belong on trains. I live 500 yards uphill from a 21,000 acre man-made lake and on occasions some moron (yep, I said it) will shatter the silence for miles with an illegal train air horn mounted on a large watercraft. I will say that if I ever have the opportunity to find out exactly who it is I will report them to the marine patrol.
