    Hey

    Just after a bit of advice on cctv.

    I have had 2 of my scooters pinched but then recovered, basically its some local fool who thinks that he can just do this willy nilly so i want to put a stop to this and hopefully catch the scrote in the process. I have sold one of the scooters but i want to use the other for work.

    So does anyone have a set up they can recommend, money isnt great at the mo, so i think ill just start off with one IP camera and then rig it up to the microserver so i have it recording.

    Any suggestions??

    baseball bat to the knee caps. On a serious note though do you want to catch him or deter him? If you want to catch him its best to keep it hidden, any camera will do aslong as the CCTV is clear tbh.

    I think a bit of both. Id like to know who it is myself but also deter him and others in the future.

    Thing is.. if you have a camera visable the person will just mask their face so they cant be identified. Id go for a hidden camera, even set bait for the tosspot.

    I'd be careful with kit from the cheaper end of the spectrum, I've had a few friends and businesses have difficulty because the CCTV wasn't clear enough to identify the scrotes involved. Including one incident with a van driving past 8 seperate cameras, parking up outside the building in full view of one camera and nipping through the fence to the building site next door, walking out with £20-30k worth of tools and equipment and driving back out past the same 8 cameras. Not one clear shot of a face or a number plate.

    We installed a hi-def pan and scan camera for them after that.

    @zxspectrum Out of interest Ed, where are you keeping these scooters mate? How is someone able to do this to you twice? Just wondering if your overall security could do with some reinforcing

    I think I will spend around £350 on decent kit to be fair, just not yet as I cant afford that just now.

    JK, its kept at the side of my flat, and is hooked up against barriers. There is a road going past so people have a good view. As its council i cant do much with it. Ill even have to ask for permission before i put the system in place as well.

    Ah OK mate fair dues, I didn't mean that to sound harsh I was just annoyed that you'd had to go through that twice. I wonder is there anywhere you could put your scooter that was more hidden. I don't suppose your folks live close? You could catch this person but ideally I'd like for you to avoid the whole situation and enjoy your scooter

    Some times tough love is the best love ha ha.

    As for folks/family, im pretty much on my own on that score. Could ask friends but they dont live next door, so I would be going to and from etc.

    When I was riding and looking at a somewhat dodgy area to live in I contemplated bringing the bike in to the flat with me, luckily there was a lift in that place. Fortunately I didn't move in there so it wasn't needed but I was wondering if you couldn't bring it in doors at all?

    Even with a wireless solution there are too many wires running around the place so i gave up on installing CCTV.
