uh..how are you going to have a hidden spy cam, but mounted on your side mirrors? you need something like they have on tv for catching car thieves and hookers and **** like that. search google for spy cameras for cars

I suggest mounting it in a tree / on your house and just have it watch over your car..

If you get paranoid, just switch your TV to your x10 and make sure your cars fine. They also sell modules that are motion activated (if camera senses any motion will turn on and start recording onto media of choice) but that means any car that drives by or person walking their dog will trigger it.

my viper 2-way wouldn't pick up someone keying my truck to start with. i wish it would, and wish it would come up as a key scratching metal on my remote. you'd have to record the event after the damage was done. have the nuts to do something about it, and make sure the whole neighborhood saw it. then make sure you have bond money and an attorney. i found out the hard way that you have to catch them in the act destroying or stealing your property. otherwise it's a felony.

A "spy" cam will not work in a car because you need to be able to record the events. Unless you want a VCR in your car, forget it.

The better route is to do this:

Get a wireless 802.11g camera with infared
Hardwire it into your car
Have it connect to your wireless access point
Optional: Get a server and have it record everything (I mean every single second).

This is better because you can pull up the feed anytime from your computer. You can even look at the camera if you're in another country, but your car is still at home. And since you have a server running and recording the footage, you can pull it up at anytime.

Another thing you could do to get creative is wire it up to one of your alarm outputs. That way, when the alarm gets triggered, the camera will come on and start recording.

Your alarm will with at least warning chirps with the DEI 508D Field Disturbance Detector or any other radar microwave detector. :idea:

I have had my dual zone (exterior & interior) extend out once with highest sensitivity setting on the instant interior & the full alarm would scream when approaching the car even with the windows up without even laying a finger on it! ;) I would not recommend doing this EXCEPT if parked where NOBODY should be around it (driveway at night). Even with this, the detector would be prone to false alarms because of so high of a sensitivity setting & other factors (cats, rain, etc...)

Happens to the best of em, even with no field disturbance detector. ;)

A too high sensitivity setting on especially shock sensors can cause a false alarm from rain, loud vehicles, etc...

Even with all alarm detectors set right, a very loud crack of thunder nearby or very heavy rain can cause the alarm to trigger.

The best is a dual stage shock sensor with warn away chirps first on lighter hits & full alarm on heavier hits. With this, the warn away chirps may get it first before the full alarm trigger in the case of false environmental reasons.


BTW, don't mean to hijack the thread off it's original subject, but I wanted to address the 'keying' issue when I first saw it & especially after someone else addressed it.
