Never smart to ring my doorbell and run off when I have cameras pointing right at the door. I am getting in my car to chase them down and see if I could help them

Keith I Myers – 2015-01-24 16:20:17-0500+Kevin Nether – For kids that were 12-14 years old… nah. I just got in my car and met them at the end of the block to ask if they needed anything. It turns out that they also hit my neighbors as well.  

There also happened to be a police office in a marked car who was parked on the other block. I told her what they were up to and she had a few other marked cars patrol the block to put the fear of god in them. Garrett Barker – 2015-01-24 16:25:54-0500With more and more people having cameras at their houses this will become a thing of the past, we moved around a lot and I remember we always had this happen to us as we were always the new family in town, wish we had cameras thenKeith I Myers – 2015-01-24 16:32:10-0500+Garrett Barker – I put them up when my car was broken into. I actually have 2 cameras (One looking at the cars and one looking at the front door). I am planning to add another 3 in a few weeks to keep an eye on the shed and get a better view of the backdoor and driveway.

I actually wrote all of the software controlling this systemGarrett Barker – 2015-01-24 16:36:48-0500Cameras are becoming more affordable all he time, woot.com has them from time to time, but awesome for writing the software, I would just buy the camera system and set them up, I don’t have the brains to do much more 🙂Keith I Myers – 2015-01-24 16:40:05-0500+Garrett Barker – I am using a few DLink WiFi cameras that retail for around $79. The problem is the software that comes with them is complete crap. It also does not store recordings only gives you the option to set an SMTP server.

I am using a raspberry pi and some custom software to pull in images every second and using OpenCV, try to analyze the photo. Garrett Barker – 2015-01-24 16:43:25-0500That’s cool my twin is the brains when it comes to that stuff he has always be real high on raspberry pj and its capabilities, whenever I need help with anything like that I call him, it’s nice part of being twins you get two brains that give you smarts in two different worldsKeith I Myers – 2015-01-24 16:49:23-0500+Garrett Barker I would get in so much trouble if I had a twinWayne Drescher Jr. – 2015-01-24 16:56:47-0500Get off my grass!!!Garrett Barker – 2015-01-24 17:22:15-0500+Keith I Myers it’s amazing how much trouble we get into, but then out of because we are identical twins, we definitely know how to work the angleChad Burton – 2015-01-24 17:33:29-0500I’ve got a good 8 cameras at my house. Going to add 8 more. Cheap zmodo gear for me. Gets the job done anyway
