Foscam Security Cams and setup...

Recommended Posts

Ya must of missed something in BI.... It works flawlessly here. It's a lot more intricate than the built in webserver...

 

 

That's what's strange.. Vitamin D has been working great over the last 3 days with detecting motion and sending me alerts. Blue Iris was running for one day and it wasn't consistent with motion alerts, even when I passed my hand in front of the camera inside the window.. It didnt pick it up as motion.. (??) so I nixed it and went with Vitamin D.

 

Perhaps it's the software? Vitamin D is able to fairly accurately determine if an object is a person, animal or "other." Maybe whatever algo they're running is more "intelligent"?

 

So far over the last 2 days, I've seen (been alerted of) the landscapers, postman, and ups delivery person. =]

They are only about 6-8" tall. You tell me, you get a lot of snow built up on your house? :)

I dunno how hard it is for you to get to them, but if they need servicing, especially in the winter, that might be a biotch.......

 

do you think the snow will cover them up ?

Maybe, maybe not... They all use the same security like other internet devices. Wep/Wap, etc... So IMHO, anything you open your network to could be vulnerable. Host off your own server, devices, sharing, etc...

 

Also, beware of sites selling low priced Foscams... A lot are nothing more than clones. Foscam is aware of this so I'm told by their reps. Make sure your firmware IS up to date as the article mentions.

      In light of all of the big national data breeches, helpful to know if your email appeared on any of the lists, and if so, what other information is tied in.

      I put this topic under "NJ Prepared" since I would think a secure entry door is an important part of being prepared for the unknown.  If anyone feels it doens't belong here, please move it to a more appropriate forum.
       
      Does anyone have any recommendations or experience regarding an attractive, yet strong/secure front entry door company/installer?  I've seen a few different ones, at gun shows, that claim to be strong enough to withstand battering rams and crowbars, even to the glass components.  I'm looking at a full reconstruction, not just a replacement door.  Currently we just have a wooden door with no glass and we want to add a more attractive and safer (preferably steel) door with translucent, but not transparent, glass on either side of it.  I'd also like to still have the option of installing a storm door, which I don't see people do too much anymore with new, attractive doors.
       
      Thanks in advance for any tips, info, or ideas.

      Just got my Bighorn Gun safe from Costco delivered. I have to say. I am impressed so far! The question is how am i getting this bad boy up the steps out of the garage..... i may have to call my brother inlaw and a few friends
       
      Here is the safe i bought: BIGHORN 19ECB DIGITAL GUN SAFE  just under $650 delivered to the house... and since i had $200 in gift cards, i got her for about $450ish.
       

       
      I'll post some pics of it stocked when i get a chance. it's Still in the wrapper!

    • I'm sure that those fine people in Newark, Camden and Trenton have receipts for their firearms.
    • so i went thru receipts to make sure i had 1 for each gun/rifle im missing one for a tp9sfx is there a place to trace serial number since i cant remember who i bought it from?...it was online purchase also in NJ do they seize guns without proof of purchase? i been scrambling trying to find the dam receipt thanks in advance guys! god bless
    • I would agree all those people should probably be charged, if everything that has been reported is accurate. What charges I wouldn't predict, I'm not familiar enough with the legal definitions, also NM's laws/definitions could be different than NJ. There's been speculation that person(s) used that gun for live fire target practice during lunch, right before the incident. I wonder if anyone will either admit to it or other people will report who did it. 
    • does not need to be perfect, don't need the barrel nut   thx
    • My wife and I recently purchased a condo in Jupiter, Florida, and we have started spending some time there.  As luck would have it, our condo came with a gun safe!  It is currently empty, except for my CCW Springfield XD 9mm subcompact, which I am now able to leave down there to avoid the minor inconvenience of traveling with it.  I'm planning on purchasing an AR, possibly a real Colt, an AK (Zastava ZPAP M70), and a 9mm carbine.  I have an old Ruger Police Carbine and a Keltec Sub2000 in NJ.  I was considering the Evo Scorpion, but have heard it might not be so great.  I'm not opposed to the newer Ruger PCC.  Anyone have a pistol caliber carbine that they really like?  I would love to hear people's recommendations.
