IR Camera

I am planning on installing a IR camera inside of my cabin.....It will be concealed inside of a wall. Is anybody doing this now and if so I am looking for a suggestion about what mfr I should use. I would like to have a IR only model if they make them that way.....will probably conceal one outside as well.

Re: IR Camera

To a DVR I am assuming. The dvr needs to be in a secure location such as a steel box inside a locked closet. Do not mount them behind glass or plexi glass. The glare from IR will blind the camera. Its ok for a person to detroy the camera but do not let them get to the DVR

Re: IR Camera

Also depends on what you are looking for a "dummy" dvr in a slightly visable place is a great way to stop them from looking for the real one. Or internet access to send the images or video to a remote location.

Re: IR Camera

Go with a black flash version. IR obviously doesn't flash, but the red glowing of the IR emitters is still something that will catch the eye of a would be theif. If theres cell service maybe something that will email/text you the pictures.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Re: IR Camera

Its ok if the would be theif can see the camera. 9/10 times they will find or see it anyways. Key is to be able to either hide or secure the dvr, have a 2nd dvr as a decoy or send the data from the dvr to the cloud. Just think if the theif comes right to the camera and rips it off the wall then you will have lots of footage of him. good footage at that.
