Cheap dash cam wanted

Post by cuisinartvette » Thu Jun 15, 2017 7:49 pm

been having severe vandalism problems, 3 cars totaled in the last year ea one complete loss
It is almost daily, more hammer dents, key marks flat tires smashed mirrors etc.
I know for a fact who is doing it but need video...one witness gets cold feet when asked to sign a statement
Mgmt co seems to almost protect these people, if I say anything to these tenants its considered "harassment" on my end and they threaten to terminate my lease
They are sec 8 and a major problem to many here. Thought by moving to a good (and way overpriced area) wouldnt have to deal with this
Anyway-
Something that is motion activated, has an alert that goes to my cel?
Need to catch them in the act, apt building cable/cell signals are spotty

What I have around my house are IP cameras. Three of them are specifically for the cars in the driveway. I do not know if that would work in your situation.

Hunters game cameras might work also and you might find those on Ebay.

Check your local WW Supercenter.

My Buddy Doc got the one in his new ride there. Not expensive at all if I recall him saying?

The Canary.

Initially, I bought one because I had read the software had issues. It does not. After a year, I bought another for downstairs.
