It used to be that way here. When I escaped Detroit in 1995 and became a refuge here near Petoskey lol, people used to leave cars running and to be honest it was a shock to me. In Detroit you had to lock everything up and they morons would even steal the locks.

After working the streets of Detroit and retiring finally I will never look back. My friends downstate alays ask me to come visit and my answer is always why don't you come up here and visit so we all can enjoy that time together.

But Alas the Michigan State law that makes it illegal to leave a car running unattended stopped the cars running in the parking lot in winter.

And at least three women were friendly.

The system is fairly cheap and I can view it through the Internet with an Iphone/Android or any computer with the FREE Zmodo software. I am impressed considering the cost and I put the whole system up with 4 cameras up in the tree canopy where they are not seen and 4 more surrounding the house 360 degrees. One can in no way approach my place without being seen, and my Pit Bull watches the cameras and let's me know when anyone approaches. The Pit Bull wasn't included in the deal, he learned on his own with a little help from me pointing at the Visio television I use as a monitor. He now runs to the door someone is walking up to to be ready to greet them.

I thought I would let you know since this is affordable and has a long record time. NOTE: you can upgrade to a larger drive also.
Thanks, that sounds really good - good to know someone else has made it work. Your system seems much simpler than mine, though as I finished setting up the Raspberry Pi computers to record and transmit the way I want them to over the weekend and I'm just waiting for the delivery of the cameras now I'm a bit reluctant to go with the simpler system :P Will see how it goes, hopefully get it all functional this coming weekend.


Thanks for the help everyone!

Regarding your previous occupation (!) what was the most unexpected aspect of your work?
Did you normally wear a Kevlar vest?
Do you know Aikido?
Were you allowed to use deadly force?

TIA.

1.the most unexpected aspect of your work? Nice people lol
Did you normally wear a Kevlar vest? Always
Do you know Aikido? Yes and MooDukKwan.

No glamor in any job, it paid the bills.

If you believe people know when they are being watched, how is this done?
If you believe people know when a person approaching or nearby means you harm, how is this done?

I haven't been able to find anything provable on these paranormal events and Duke's PSI lab doesn't seem to test for this. I've experienced both.

BTW, got a black belt in Tae Kwon Do after a corrupt judge refused to convict a street punk I got into a fight with.
No problem, two years later I heard that this kid was shot dead at work.

A mugger was on our trail in NYC once and I had a weapon but I outwitted this stocky dude, instead. I guess that was the optimum outcome. . .
