Default Surveillance Cameras (CCTV)

Hi guys and gals,

Not sure if the is the correct forum but I couldn't find any threads.

I want a CCTV system to record both visual and audio. Budget is the key, a system that has video and audio recording and wireless.

Recommendations.?

Long story short. We have had a couple of visit from the council to let us know our dogs are barking 'constantly' and the neighbor across the road just tells me the council bloke knocked on her door and ask if she would go to court.

Like WTF, so I need to find out what is going on, as these dogs don't bark when anyone is at home unless someone enters the property.

My wife works afternoons and I work mornings. Long story short, there isnt much of the day that somebody isnt home, so what the hell is going on I ask myself.

I used this setup to monitor our pooch when she was settling in to our place.

It involves using a DLINK Wireless Camera and powering it by a USB Power Bank. Just cable tie it to the back door/sliding door.

E.G

Camera:

Power Cube:

and you can remotely view and snapshot, and save footage to a local PC.

Court is generally the last step in the process unless you're unlucky and have a council that doesn't sit on it's hands and will actually act.

Is there a couple of hours a day when no one is home? The dogs might be constantly barking then? We just escaped barking dog hell ourselves, the owners were trendy socialites who were never home and their fucking dog barked nonstop day and night. They didn't care and the council made us fill out mind numbing diaries for weeks then declared it a civil matter and washed their hands of it.

I'd suggest taking any complaint seriously, which you seem to be, in case someone decides to skip the council hoop jumping and bait your dogs.

Oh yeah.. I have purchased citronella bark collars and now the static ones.

Trust, I don't want trouble but the neighbor next door hosed the dogs like 4 days after we moved in.

I spoke with the council guys and he read the notes to me, they have basically said there is no problem but I still want to cross all my T's.

@waltermitty - You used them before?

Sadly, no I haven't any old androids laying around the house.

Maybe it would be best if I look around for a coupe of cheap android phones.
