  • Thanks for the reply. Why bother? Because I don't think it will stop unless someone gets caught; it seems like people behave badly because they can get away with it. For example, even when I saw the guy letting his dog cap in my yard and I confronted him, he looked me straight in the eye and told me 'no I didn't'. The nerve of some people! Since I didn't have evidence (except for a warm pile left by his dog), I didn't want to bother the police with a 'his word against mine' argument. If I have some kind of proof, at least I'll feel better about getting the authorities involved. Car tires cost a lot, over $300 for a set of four, and I don't want this person doing anything worse that will cost me anymore money (spray painting my fence, spraying lawn killer, etc).I really do thank yo...

Car tires cost a lot, over $300 for a set of four, and I don't want this person doing anything worse that will cost me anymore money (spray painting my fence, spraying lawn killer, etc).I really do thank you for your experience as I have none in this area. I was impressed with the reviews of the Amcrest 960H systems; I know it's not a high grade system, but you don't think 800TVL cameras will provide enough resolution at 6'-20' of distance? I can always buy one more higher resolution camera (perhaps an IP camera?...possibly a PTZ camera mounted on my chimney, about 30' away?).The system I ordered was less than $250, can you recommend a similar system for a similar price? Once the nail caper is solved, I do plan on mounting the cameras in a more visible (but still not-in-your-face) locations to deter future problems (without making my house look like it's in a high crime area...it really isn't that bad).It's a shame that one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch. :( I don't know why people continue to act poorly then turn around and complain about the conditions they live in. If we all do one thing every day to make our surroundings better, imagine how nice the world will be!Thanks again for your suggestions and sharing your experiences...I appreciate all comments! :)
