Already, we start reading about the people who loose some or all of their holiday decorations to neighborhood punks. Many people spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on Christmas decorations. We read about one family, who set up cameras to watch their nativity scene, and recorded a girl stealing a Baby Jesus worth $500!
They also talk about putting a GPS device inside the baby Jesus, to help track him; brilliant idea! We will show you a few items you can use to protect your property.
The least expensive, easiest to use and set up is a The SecureView Flood Light Camera. This simple security camera screws into a flood light housing, and has a camera inside the bulb. You watch the video on a TV or a VCR for those of you who don’t want to invest in DVR’s or recorders. You just plug a little box in the wall outlet near your TV, and electricity carries the video signal over your electrical wires to the little box. You then connect the box to a video input on the TV or VCR. Simple, low cost, easy, and works well.
Next would be the Color Day Night IR Camera with Built-in DVR that records video to internal SD cards. Mount this on the side of the roof or a tree. All you need to do is run an electrical cord to the camera, plug it in & set it up with the included wireless remote control. With the Motion Detection feature, it will record day or night for about 5 hours, only when there is movement in front of the camera. The only drawback is you have to retrieve the SD card to view the video…
If you don’t want to do that, consider the VersaCam VC/36, a good little camera that can see up to about about 50 in the dark, and has nice clear images. It uses a wide view lens, so you can cover most of your front yard with one camera.
The VC/36 is small and painted black, so it’s easy to stick in a corner and no one will know it’s there. You will need to run electricity to the camera, and it sends the signal wirelessly to a small box that plugs into the USB port of your computer. With the included Blue Iris software, you can hook up 3 more cameras, and view them on your computer, rotating each image ever 3.5 seconds. Easy to set up, the VersaCams are our top sellers, with good quality video.
Or go full blown with a 4 or 8 channel DVR and add outdoor wired or wireless cameras for complete surveillance systems starting at $649.95.
Now to track the Baby Jesus if he is stolen. The only way to do it is with a GPS Tracker. A GPS Logger is only good for after the fact, and you have to have it to read where it’s been. A GPS Tracker tracks in real time and can notifiy you when it moves, so as soon as baby Jesus is stolen, it will send you a text message that he is on the move.
The best one for the job is the GPS Global Asset Tracker. The GPS Global Asset Tracker is a tiny 4 inches long, and is a real-time GPS tracker that does not require monthly fees like other GPS Trackers. It can last up to 3 months and they give you one free track without having to have the monthly service. You easily activate the GPS Global Asset Tracker when you notice your asset is missing. The beauty is you don’t need to have monthly service, you just activate it when something is stolen.
