    The nice thing about getting the video cam is that once you've found out the culprit, you can set up the camera to cover the front door, and when someone rings or knocks, you can see who's there before you go to the door.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I didn't look at the game cam you picked but most of them have a flash so the location would be given away and the vandals would just take it. But with a video cam, you would have the images. Later on down the road, you could install the camera to view your front door or overlook your driveway. I'll see if I can find a link.

    I've been wanting one of these for years
    I'm thinking about the webcam option. I've been having problems with kids vandalizing my vehicle when it's not in the garage.

    Claymores with trip wires work well,they also prevent repeat offenses,the flash would give it's position away tho,but they wouldn't have anything left to steal.But they are illegal and something in the law about boobie traps,including shotguns aimed at the door with a tripwire running to the trigger

    I've got a decent ptz web cam that I can control or look at from any computer on the internet. I can set it up to detect motion and it will email snapshots to an email address. It's pretty decent. The only thing I have caught, since installing it, is my ex-neighbors' pit bull crapping in my lawn. I think the other neighbors saw me putting it up and it acts as a deterrent to them.

    The one I have is a D-Link 6620G.

    Let us know if you catch anyone.

    The IR game cameras ARE detectable, contrary to claims here and in ads. I run several. Basically, the broadcast flash may not be visible, but the LEDs that produce the IR light do glow red for 1-3 seconds. So if your vandals are looking in the direction of the camera, they will see it light up.

    Good to know, thanks.

    I have not purchased anything yet, still looking at options. Thanks alfack for the info.

    Google Tripwire and Pepperspray. I saw an ad for a pretty cool setup a while back. I hope you nail them.

    The deer in some of those pictures looked like they knew something was going on. I think I'd want to borrow a camera from someone before buying my own.

    Sure, I have dozens of shots of game looking right at the camera. They spot the red light. I have also sat in a deer stand and watched the deer bolt when the light came on. I have also watched deer be completely unbothered by the light. I knew when the light came on because I was using night vision at the time (and I wasn't hunting deer).

    Some cameras also make a couple of sounds when they toggle on. The sounds are not loud at all, but in a completely quite environment, they can be noticed several feet away.
