Oh learned ones, I seek advice and counsel over a DIY CCTV requirement I have...... I need to cover a parking area outside my house. I have a nuisance neighbour who plays silly buggers over parking places, blocks people in if he is not happy, generally obnoxious. Also 'someone' has been laying poison for animals and it would be nice to get some images of the twat. The first reason is due to ongoing harassment which is having an upsetting effect on my wife and daughter. Dropping the twat is not an option, I have more to lose than him. The second reason is the fact that 'parking nutter' is the prime suspect and got away with circumstantial evidence from the CPS when he poisoned my daughters No1 cat. I see from my research already that the important bits are: 1. IR Capability or ability to do well in lo/no light situations 2. good enough quality to be used as evidence 3. motion detection 4. unobtrusive camera if external is the only option (Grade II listed building). internal would be nice,Covert would be nicer. 5. extra bells and whistles not really required I just need images/video stored. 6. simplest system going. (not thick just don't want to be fannying around with it once it is set up ) 7. wireless camera (Covert) that I can fit in/on my shed to get another angle on the target area. (have power in shed) The rest I ask for your assistance. Should I look at DVR or PC route, can anyone recommend cameras? I have looked, honest guv, and to be honest its all a bit confusing. Not a computer/IT duffer so not phased by PC option based on linux or such like. Learnt how to do wiring in the mob so not worried about that sort of thing. All recommendations gratefully received, cost is an option so need to keep it as cheap as possible. Happy to make a donation to H4H for your time and thoughts. Any experts out there? Happy on the legalities and DPA issues, that I do for a living I really would like to get this Bastard.
