    Default Display Security?

    So I have out a LOT more hardware in the yard this year by adding pixels....

    plus for XMAS, I have display elements in 3 neighbors yards.

    I've had very few issues (knock on wood), but I decided I wanted to add a bit of security this season. So, I found a decent package from Samsclub and installed it yesterday.

    So far- I love it!

    1. i can set it to record on motion during overnight hours, and
    as a bonus
    2. I can login from anywhere with my iPhone or iPad and check out the crowd!

    Anyone else doing something similar?

    It's always better to be safe than sorry. I put up three cameras last year, two 3 megapixel CCD cameras, and a 480 line PTZ dome on top of my megatree. This year, I've included 6 additional cameras, for a total of 9 on the front yard. I'm contemplating a 10th, another PTZ model. With some of the cameras I'm using, you can make a "virtual fence", and trigger an alarm if someone passes through it. I'm thinking that I could cause it to run a sequence turning on white lights in the yard if someone were to enter it. Think of it as a giant motion-sensor light!

    I read somewhere of people using a light switch with string tied between it and a solid object to turn on flood lights as an easy 'yard entry' alarm. Just drill a small hole through the light switch arm and run your string or fishing line between them.

    I haven't done this, but read about it elsewhere. The LOR controllers use pins 3,4,5 and 6 for data and voltage feed. I know the earlier generation controllers passed through the other pins; not sure about gen 3 or gen 4; I've heard they may not.

    Some people have looped a voltage through one of those other pins, going through each of their controllers, and running the cable back to the house. They use that voltage to keep a "normally closed" relay energized. Someone pulls a controller, it breaks that loop, and the relay will sound off an alarm and security lights.

    Something similar could probably be configured for other devices . Maybe use "The Dude" network monitor (the program is free) for anything E1.31. If you use that, be careful with the config. I know of the program because of it being misconfigured, and going out and "discovering" the whole Internet, not just what is on your local network.
