    Any experience with DIY surveillance/security cameras?

    So, we're having some issues with somebody prowling around on our property at night and or while we're not home. Pretty sure it's the creepy neighbor down the street but no concrete evidence that it is him. I've done a little research about cameras but still not sure what to do. Ideally I'd want everything wifi and the cameras would mount under the soffit area. Thought about just picking up a couple more game cams but they are bulky and I'd need something to mount them to while keeping them somewhat hidden.

    So linkers, any experience, thoughts, recommendations?

    you've not read many of my posts in gun related threads apparently. Lack of firepower isn't the problem.

    I've got a network of D-link cameras installed here in the house and they're pretty reliable. We only have the indoor variety but given that we've been pretty happy over the last year I'm sure the heartier outdoor cams are just as good.

    Wifi ready, night vision ready, and if you run into any issues their tech support is above par. Their MyDlink app is great for checking on the place while away, and it can email you if triggered by movement if you so choose. The slightly pricier models will of course take full video, while the cheaper ones can take simple snaps. You'll likely have to tweak the sensitivity as these things can and do detect floating carpet fibers at times.

    Do they use an SD card or are they live feed only?

    The model I use is feed only. They may have models that use physical media. Not sure.
