That sounds great. How do you guys feel about the cameras? Do they work as a deterrent and have they helped at all?

I hurd not to do any wireless camera's, because someone else can scan the RF Freq, and pick up on your camera's

What do you think about this setup? been trying to read reviews but not getting a totally straight answer...http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11258102&search=swann&Mo=1&cm_re=1_en-_-Top_Left_Nav-_-Top_search&lang=en-US&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&Sp=S&N=5000043&whse=BC&Dx=mode+matchallpartial&Ntk=Text_Search&Dr=P_CatalogName:BC&Ne=4000000&D=swann&Ntt=swann&No=1&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Nty=1&topnav=&s=1

That is a good price on that setup if you need that many ch's...I would like to have at least 8chs...4 isn't quite enough...I'm considering setting up another 4ch DVR in the attic ...on seperate cameras...just in case someone was lucky enough to make it to one of the DVR's and destroy it....I doubt they would find both....if I do one in the attic ...it'll most likely consist of two hidden indoor cams and two outdoor cams.....

I figured room to grow and it was a good price. So you would suggest those cameras?

Has anyone ever attempted this in a car?

I tossed around the idea of having four different cameras (front, back, side to side) monitoring 24/7 around the car, maybe building a roof console or something similar to house them. Call me paranoid but I would feel very safe :D

I keep cameras on all my rides...but not in the car itself....

Well I went up in my attic and had planned on pulling a couple of new runs of video camera wiring...and ended up getting terrified...red wasp every where....I saw several big nest packed full....since its hard to run from them in the attic I'm trying to figure out a way to kill them....I may have to wait a month or two till the temp drops...I dunno....
