I enjoy getting out and seeing the sights while running. Since I had my own small business specializing Home Theater, Home Automation, Home Gadgets, etc., these types of things catch my eye. While I was out running this morning I saw an improper installation of an Infrared Camera. It's attached to a tree which is not totally the problem, but being close to 6' tall, I could easily snip the video cable. Thus, no evidence of who stole their Mustang that the camera was monitoring. Not that I would do this!
Do yourself a favor, if you're going to invest a few hundred dollars for one of these cameras and a modulator or a DVR, place it higher out of the reach of the bad guys! The camera would have probably worked fine from the eaves of the house. As well, the video cable doesn't look too attractive hanging from the house to the tree.
