    Default Security cameras

    I would like to increase the security around the house. I have 6' fence, rolled barbed wire in some sections - will finish the rest a bit later. I have bars on all windows and doors and a little dog which is very very good at doing the alarm thing. I have some battery powered alarms for some of the windows. Need to put on all windows.

    I am considering a security camera. I looked a bit on the web but I am overwhelmed. Any pointers? Where do I start? Are they worth it? Fake ones as deterrent?

    I tried to find info on DR1 but obviously could not.

    Suggestions welcome. Thank you.

    i would skip the cameras and go for motion sensors. you can install a few on the outside walls of the house. the good ones will not "see" small dogs and cats. the siren is loud enough to wake the dead and certainly will serve the purpose of discouraging a thief.

    Sorry, I am just curious, what is the point to live in a place where you need to turn your house into a private prison and live behind bars and barbed wire?

    ha the world is at odds..thieves...cameras dont deter nighttime invaders... i like dogs...trained dogs...and security /people living there... my last condo rental they got in and walked out by not having a double keyed entrance lock on door...my advice is to review your security every 3 or 4 months...they are looking watching...waiting... tough to be safe of course t v s and comp are different then personal safty. i always worried about u.s. thieves more than a local...

    god help me. ever heard of "precaution"? google it. back where you live a precaution is to lock the house. here it is to have bars in windows. deal with it.

    I live in SD, actually. There are many nice apartment buildings where you can live without bars, not like in a prison cell.

    There are some buildings like this in Juan Dolio, Punta Cana and other tourist areas, if you like to live near the beach.

    What is the reason to buy a house and then have paranoia about security, barbed wire, cameras, what's next? High voltage on barbed wire? Mines in the backyard?
