Some other things to notice.

A motion activated flood light turns on - he doesn't even flinch and still steals it.

There is enough light there that you should be able to make out something - logo on the hoodie, face, but the whole thing is basically just a blur.

This increase in thefts in Texas must be all the Californians fleeing to Texas that Natey warned you about in Post #47 LOL :lmao:

I agree, there is plenty of light available for a good picture.

Here is one more picture from two days ago. I just posted this one on Nextdoor as the Gypsy thread is really taking off. This one is of the woman in the back seat asking me for time even though it is on the console of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This one is from my 4MP PTZ.

I am on Ring Neighbors and the videos there look better than those posted here.

The writing is on the wall which cams sell better. Good luck selling in-home data centers (rack-mount, server-class hardware, powered switches, etc) to support home security cams.

See also Ring TV for a better representation of Ring cam videos.
With respect to writing on the wall - you are confused. POE ip surveillance cameras and HD analog wired cams outsell ring and similar by orders of magnitude every year. Hikvision revenue in 2020 was over 9 Billion USD and dahua at 4 billion. With a B.
Ring sales are at about 400 million and they are by far the largest toy camera company.
90 percent (probably higher) of the folks installing poe cameras run a single NVR with a built in poe switch. Those running PC based vms here use cheap ($100-300) pc's.
Ring doesnt work if the internet is down - all it takes is a single snip snip of your cable. It also relies on wifi = shit. Ring cannot store continuous video and only stores highly compressed video for a max of 60 days. People use ring and similar until something happens and they either a) completely missed the event or b) the image is useless. It has its place in apartments or temporary situations just for basic awareness.

That worked. That crap happens everywhere.

Love this comment from someone probably with a Ring lol:

"Yo can see the license But I don’t get a clear pic of her"

I thought your picture was clear enough to make her out!

signature blocks of the various users there indicate their configurations, including things like:

Intel Xeon
Windows Server [2022]
"12 cores"
32GB RAM
Western Digital Black

Sounds like a lot more than a $300 [used] PC.

I did run Blue Iris on a 4th Gen Core-i7 home desktop PC.
It killed the WD consumer grade drive before warranty expiration with all those disk-writes.

Those are idiots who buy OLD used servers on ebay that are space heaters and burn power and are way LESS powerful than modern efficient machines. They actually pay LESS than way 300 for those old servers. Take some time to learn about CPU's. There is no way that running BI killed your drive. Its a mere coincidence. I have over 20 blue iris machines and almost all write video to the OEM HDD and are running fine. There are thousands of users here with similar setups. You are misinformed.

Current rules for dealing with KIA Californians:

Rule #1
Californians are always right.

Rule #2 When Californians are wrong, refer to Rule #1. :rolleyes:

Warm weather brought out the perps this weekend.

Here is another typical Ring image. Notice that due to the wifi nature of the camera that once there is motion, the bandwidth cannot keep up. The columns are clear, but the person is a pixelated mess:

At least it notified her there were people in her backyard:

Best capture from this video - whole image is a blocky blur though...

The reflection of you in the passenger window is better than any of the other cams straight on, of the subject.

The average home/consumer would appreciate this kinda video Goldsboro homeowner gets surprise as snake sets off doorbell camera

(It was on multiple news stations around the country recently)

Maybe with a very high-end cam, you could get an amazing snake pic at close range and it could qualify for award-winning photography/publication in National Geographic or something.

I know. Maybe it is her monitor.
Could also be Nextdoor. Sometimes they seem to shrink images and video clips and really strip detail. It seems to depend on the image format / video codec and aspect ratio. This is a recent change in the last 6 months or so. It's been a real nuisance particularly with wildfire maps.

Sharing a youtube video on nextdoor is the best option to share high quality footage.

They getting braver: Ring Neighbors
It is disgusting seeing all these nice vehicles pull up and stealing stuff.

And yeah they do not care day or night anymore.

And unfortunately Ring will not capture plates at that distance and I am not aware of any cloud-based camera that can as they are typically the 2.8mm or 3.6mm lens.
